Roo Mellor won Silverstone race of Groundhog 1967 season | Mar 06, 2014
Starting from position 1 on the grid, Roo Mellor's Lotus 49 crossed the line ahead of Gabor Olah's Honda RA300 to take the win. James Marchyshyn rounded out the top three in a Eagle T1G, while fastest race lap was set by Roo Mellor also.
It seems that Gabor is already running away with the title. But I stick to my decision and will drive all cars along the season. For Silverstone it will be the BRM. My further plans are Monza-Honda, Glen-Cooper and Nurby-Lotus.
“But I stick to my decision and will drive all cars along the season.“
Me too ;)
So (according to the plan) Honda this time.
Update time: Silverstone Circuit 1967, BRM time 1:28.651 session T
Slightly improved my old chassis PB, I feel there are still a few tenths to cut off.
I have to decide if I take BRM here, or at Glen. Will only test wednesday/thursday, first a 65 leaguerace, but it's a familiar track, and did hotlap here few months ago...
BRM-Ferrari-Eagle-doubleduty to go.
Unfortunately I will miss race for social reasons and the next one for professional reasons. Will be back in Glen, though. Enjoy!
Have some serious flu since yesterday. I am not able to race sadly, as I can't hold yet solid food nor fluids :(
Have a good one, and see you next week...
Get well soon, Robert. I“m also suffering flu, luckily it's my third day, so I'm able to race :)
So it was kind of a good race. Not a great result, but a great overall feeling throughout the event.
But the evening did not start well. I have a US model Momo wheel, and thus I need a US-Euro power transformer. Now it was somehow loosen, and without being under electricity the wheel was not seen by the PC. But that was unknown for me for a good ten minutes... Finally I found it and could fix the problem.
With such a bad omen I fear the qual a bit, but it was okay. I could improve my lap times, and in the end it was a wonderful chassis PB, and put myself just ahead of Dean on the grid.
I had a great start, everyone else seemed to be too slow towards T1. I could pass James who was keeping to right, and opened a gap for me on his left. We were a bit close in the first corners but escaped without bruises.
But I had a BRM and was soon at the end of the Andy/James/Dean pack. After a few laps Dean went off and dropped back a bit, while Andy and James eased away and I was left alone.
After Andy had a problem I had a chance to keep him in touch but his Ferrari was just faster.
Yet again a few laps alone and there came Andy. This time with a double error which let me through for a clean fourth place.
In the last lap I realized that James was getting slower and slower, but the race was over before I could catch him.
Congrats to Roo! Nice hat trick. Thanks all for coming! See you next week!
Thanks Jani, race came too early, but tonight I have eaten my first meal and hydrated again, and no fever anymore. I'm sure a day later I would have raced.
Congrats Roo and podium! :)
In the end I could race as my social event was cancelled. Although I was not so fast, I had a nearly perfect race with only two minors problems: at lap 12 my monitor went dark (that never happened before) so I stopped the car and hurried on to identify and solve the problem, losting some time. Three laps after that, I had a minor spin. Happy eith the consistency, learned a few things and I'm loooking forward for the next race which, in my case, will be the Glen.
WD Roo for the win and get well soon Robert!
I had a quiet week work-wise so I managed to get some testing done with various chassis, eventually opting for my trusty Lotus.
Quali went well. I was expecting Gabor to fly in whatever car he chose & James' Eagle threatened but my time held for pole.
Got a terrible start & Gabor passed me. I tried to keep some pressure on him while the tyres warmed up & eventually managed to pass him after 4 laps or so thanks to the Lotus power.
After that I did a Vettel & managed my pace to the end making sure I made no errors.
Its nice to get on the podium again & winning is a bonus.
Grats to all finishers & see you at Monza.
So qualifying didn't go as planned as I hit the 1:26.8 mark during training but I just couldn't put it all together. But starting 3rd wasn't bad. My plan for the start was to get off the line safely and fall to the pack as I am historically a bad starter. So after the start fell back to 6th place and was chasing Jani, Dean, and Andrew for half a dozen laps. Was able to get past all of them and found myself just trying to get pace with Gabor. I didn't have it in me to catch him or Roo who were both very quick. But last 2 laps didn't come without drama as I developed fuel pressure problems and I had to limb the car all the way around and was almost caught by a hard charging Jani who would of had me if the track was another half a mile longer. But not a bad result with the 3rd, looking forward to Monza. Congrats to Roo for a well deserved hat trick.
