Results from the HMMRC 12 Hour Enduro held at the Henderson Club Rooms on 27 July saw Kieran Dales' Team 1st (7,387 laps), Doug Macrae's Team 2nd (7,109 laps), DGR Team 3rd (6977 laps) and WAIBOP 4th (6,925 laps).  A very competitive race between the teams with only 462 laps separating the teams from 1st to 4th (one of the smallest margins over recent years).  Also proved that the format of NZSCA Turbo Flex class of car was a success compared with inconsistent sealed motors of the last two years.

Feature - HMMRC 12 Hour Enduro 13-14 May 2011

Hamilton Club members Paul Caplan, Wayne Johnston and Bruce Tocker joined with Dan and Stu Smith of Tauranga as the Waikato/BOP Team Car entry to contest the 12 Hour Enduro held at the Henderson Track last weekend.

This was their first entry into this event and the expectation was to gain knowledge/practise on the very tricky and technical track.  Fourth place was always the likely outcome and so that proved to be the case, up against the three Auckland Teams on their home track.

The Hamilton Team had a very strong motor (prepared by Paul) which lasted out the whole 12 hours (brushes were about half worn down) but a few incidents cost the team some laps.  With this experience under the belt, the WaiBOP Team is keen to compete again next year and have already starting making plans from the lessons learnt.

Postscript: Paul ran the Enduro car on the following club night.  Completed 56 laps and then the motor blew.  The motor ( a sealed Parma S16D) had done some 13 hours over the weekend of the HMMRC Enduro.

The US Team from Auckland ran out the winners even after some 5-6 motor replacements through the 12 hour race, followed by the R2D2 Team (who had to replace four motors I think), then third were the Drags and our local team WaiBOP 4th. 

It was a most enjoyable weekend of racing and thanks must go to the HMMRC club members for hosting the event and their great hospitality as well.

Provisional Results:

1st - US Team - Kieran Dale, John Crothers, Ray Jackson & David Wigg                         7,428 Laps

2nd - R2D2 Team - Doug Macrae, Rob Jackson, Jan Pak, Rob Harrowfield & Dion DeGraaf   7,198 Laps

3rd - Drags - Franz DeGraaf, Erin DeGraaf, Hans DeGraaf & Paul Young                         6,806 Laps

4th - WaiBOP - Paul Caplan, Wayne Johnston, Bruce Tocker, Dan & Stu Smith              5,966 Laps
