Here at NDOR we have recently begun building a rock crawling facility. While it still has a way to go before final completion it is open for use every Saturday and Sunday.
We appreciate any help and advice on the ongoing development so please come and see us, bring your crawlers and have a go as well as help develope.
For a little flutter. RC Gamez is a fun way of winning some cool RC gear you may never have the opportunity to own without a re mortgage ????
Summer Series finale. A very damp start to the day as the heavens opened early morning before racing started. Racing commenced with the drivers struggling to get traction on very wet astro. The gods were kind to us as the rain stopped and the track started to get a little dryer. 4 rounds of heats later and the final listings were decided. The 15 minute B Final was a very well run race with lots of position changes and some good clean racing. Bumping through to the A final was 1st Jack Longdon,2nd Kyle Ward-Taylor and 3rd young Lewis Bell with his first ever bump up. Lewis also won a special award for most improved driver of the series. The 30 minute A Final had some of the best, quickest racing weve seen for a while with Kieran Cox leading the way with some excellent driving for the whole race. 2nd and 3rd was a great battle between Ian Mellish, Lee Maggs and Liam Brocklehurst final being decided 1st Kieran Cox 2nd Ian Mellish and 3rd Liam Brocklehurst. In the Ebuggy it was Lewis Marshall taking 1st James Lawrence in 2nd and Andrew Lappin 3rd.
So the Summer Series final placing were now decided and first Ebuggy taking 1st place was Lewis Marshall 2nd place Paul Fyfe and in 3rd James Lawrence. Nitro Buggy final placing Freddie Thompson taking a very well deserved 1st place after completing 3 out of the 5 legs and achieving 301 points. (Trophy collected by Jono Johnson). 2nd place Lee Maggs and 3rd was Liam Brocklehurst.
The NDOR team would like to thank ALL drivers and pit crew for attending throughout the series and making NDOR the great venue that it is.
Special thanks to NDOR Committee, Trevor Baker for race director, and George Holl and Donna Maggs for the cafe.
