AS the curtain fell on the final race day of the Radio Operated Auto Racers (ROAR) second racing season last Sunday, it can easily be said that spectators were treated to the best day of racing for the year.In the 1:8 modified off road class, Robin “The Undertaker” Mustor, controlling his his Vita Malt sponsored Team Xray XB 808 buggy, won all three of his races but not without a sterling challenge from Chris Wadman who was in charge of a well prepared Wadman Brothers sponsored Team Xray XB 808 (2010 spec) and recorded three second place finishes. Very creditable performances also came from Scott Foster who looked after a Plastic Repair Centre Hot Bodies D8 Buggy, the consistent Corey Nurse with a  JBR Pools sponsored Mugen MBX 5 and Matthew “Batman” Whitney in control of his Whitney’s Trucking Mugen MBX 6.Mustor’s performance secured him enough points to capture the championship in this class with 148, while Wadman placed second with138 and Nurse filled the final podium position with 75.In the 1:8 open off road class, young Luke Stuart with a Natural Medicinals Inc sponsored Team Losi 8, also recorded a hat-trick of victories and likewise, was crowned as overall champion in this class with 130 points, while Richard Gamble with a Team Xray XB 8 EC placed second with 88 and Austin Garner with his Wadman Brothers sponsored O’Donnell Racing Z 01B placed third with 80.The 1:10 modified on road class provided loads of excitement for the large crowd on hand, especially since the champion could not be decided until the last race was run. When the dust finally settled, it was Corey Birkett with a Titan Enterprises/ Team Spring Garden sponsored Kyosho V1 RRR who was crowned as class champion with 139 points, having recorded two first place finishes and one third, while his younger brother Jeremy with a potent Titan Enterprises sponsored Serpent 733 placed second with 126 points and Llewellyn Riley hung on for the final podium position with 93 points in his Bico sponsored Mugen MTX 4R.The third season will start on July 11, at the Sir Garfield Sobers Raceway at 2 p.m.Club president Nick Harrison has assured that to date, it has already attracted the largest number of competitors ever, especially in the 1:10 on road class.
