Scott pulls back Mustor

The sweet sound of high revving engines and the pungent smell of Nitromethane fuel signalled the start of an exciting day of racing as the Radio Operated Auto Racers got Day 2 of their Fourth Season on the way at the Sir Garfield Sobers Raceway last weekend.
With the members of the 1:8 ‘Open’ Off Road Class not being able to compete, it was all up to the drivers in the 1:8 “Modified” class to entertain the large crowd on hand for the day and so they did.
In the first race, it was Robin ‘The Undertaker’ Mustor who took the early lead and held it, up until the Race Director signalled that there was five minutes left in the 20-minute race.
At this point, Mustor encountered serious electrical problems, which forced him to withdraw from the race, giving Scott Foster with his Plastic Repair Centre Wildlife Reserve sponsored Hot Bodies D8 Buggy, the perfect opportunity to take the lead and not look back.
Foster was given a run for his money by Chris Wadman with his Wadman Brothers sponsored Team Xray XB 808 but never gave in to the pressure when the checkered flag dropped, leaving Wadman to settle for second place, while his team mate Matthew ‘Left Ball’ Whitney in his Mugen MBX 6.5 came in third.
The second race saw Foster once again put down a brilliant drive to capture first place and Gerry Haynes in his Natural Medicinals Inc sponsored Sportwerks Turmoil held off a determined Mustor to secure second position, while Wadman and Ryan Hill placed fourth and fifth respectively.
The last race of the day proved the most exciting, as the 2010 Champion, Chris Wadman, came out with blood in his eyes. Despite Foster taking an early lead, Wadman gradually diminished the time gap between themselves until they were driving neck to neck for about 3 laps, then he slowly but surely added a large gap, resulting in a well deserved victory.
Mustor made a late charge, but had to settle for third position.
Racing will resume on November 7 at 2 p.m.
