    I was correct, the C-semi was indeed very fast.

    Also, Gavin did just great!

    The A-semi just started. It's Paolo Trigillio (Italy), Matti Fyhr (Finland) (whose name I always misspell!), Nikolai Dolzhanky (Russia), Vladimir Horky (Czech), Jaroslav Recek (Czech), Janis Nabokins ( Latvia), Antonin Vojcik (Czech), and Michael Landrud (Sweden). If nobody breaks, this could be the same bunch in the finals.

    Like the C-semi, they're flying, and only rarely falling off.

    Chris Breuyinks (Belgium and ISRA interim president) was interesting in the A heat. He blew a gear in the first heat, replaced it, worked his way up to 7th overall projected in the 8th heat, including a 5.1 lap time, then blew another gear and was out.

    A-semi, half-way thru, you've got Nabokis projected at 342 first, Fyhr at 341, Trigillio at 339, Horky at 338, Dolzhanky at 335, Vojcik at 329, Landrud at 324, and Recek at 316. At this projection, neither Recek nor Vojcik will make the final.

    In addition, just now (start of the 5th), both of them just got a 3 lap penalty for putting their cars back on the wrong place. (I'm not sure that this penalty will hold tho, more later.)

    The penalties didn't hold, as I'd expected. They dealt with working on the cars at the driver's station, which is in a broad sense legal.

    It's over. The top 4-5 drivers did not run hard near the end, so all bets are off for the final.

    Horky 343
    Fyhr 341
    Landrud 338
    Nabokins 338
    Trigillio 337
    Dolzhanky 336
    Recek 320
    Vojcik 319


    Implies that Jan Zemlicka will move up from the C-semi, Piero Castricone from the B-semi, and that they will race with the top 6 above.

    I'll be back in 30 minutes with heat by heat for the final. Given how fast Castricone and Zemlicka were, I think that it will be a great final.

    1/32 F1 Finals

    The line up is
    Trigilio
    Fyhr
    Nabokins
    Horky
    Castricone
    Dolzhanky
    Landrud
    Zemlicka

    At the end of the first, it's Horky with Castricone 1 down, Dolzhnky 2, Fyhr 2, Nabokins 2, Trigilio 4 Landrud 4, and Zemlicka on black 5. Clean so far, everybody flying. Somebody got a 2 lap penalty for a false track call, I missed who.

    Heat 2: a much rougher start, 2 track calls and a hard crash under the bridge.

    You've got Horky in the lead, Nabokins 1, Dolzhanky 2 down, Fyhr 2, Trigilio 2, Landrud 6, Castricone 8, and Zemilicka 9. I didn't see the crash, but it must have been Piero and probably Jan.

    Heat 3: Clean and very fast. Nabokins, our Gothic slot racer, just did a 5.1 on purple. (?!)

    Horky in the lead, Nabokins 1, Dolzhanky 1 down, Fyhr 2, Trigilio 2, Landrud 11, Zemilicka 12, and Castricone 15.

    Piero was lapping ok at the end, but I'm thinking he must have broken.

    Heat 4: Piero lost a lap at the counter, it'll be added back, not sure if at the end of the heat or the end of the race.

    You've got Horky still in the lead, Fyhr 2 down, Dolzhanky 3, Trigilio 5, Nabokins having lots of trouble on black at 11, Landrud 13, Zemilicka 16, and Castricone 25.

    Looks like Piero won't be repeating as the F1 champion.

    Heat 5: Horky running 5.2s and 3 on blue, nobody else currently going that fast consistently. He'll stretch out if this continues. Nabokins just broke, I think a gear. Zemlicka was in the pits, too, briefly. Didn't see why.

    Horky in the lead, Fyhr 3 down, Dolzhanky 5, Trigilio 8, Landrud 16, Zemilicka 24, and Castricone 32, Nabokins 54.

    Heat 6: Nabokins is back, just ran a 5.1412. The top 5 are all flying.

    Horky in the lead, Fyhr 3 down, Dolzhanky 7, Trigilio 9, Zemilicka 25, Landrud 30, and Castricone 41, Nabokins 54.

    Matti's going to have to make a move to catch Mr. Horky.

    Heat 7: Horky is on black. Landrud pulled. Reason unknown but no loud crashes or yelling.

    Horky lost 3 laps on black, Fyhr now tied (actually about 4 meters behind), Dolzhanky 7, Trigilio 8, Zemilicka 25, , and Castricone 42, Nabokins 52, and Landrud 72.

    Look for a great finish!

    Matti got behind again, not sure when, but passed Horky again for the win with 10 secs to go. Won by a few feet.

    Matti pumped his fist a la Beuf and promptly lifted Piero Castricone about 3 feet off of the floor, implying, I'm thinking, that he used a Piero chassis. :-) Another great race!!

    No lap totals out yet.

    Matti ran a Castricone.
    Horky a new Horky/Recek.

    Andy will post pics and the lap totals on his facebook page, so I'll sign off for now.

    Hope you enjoyed the race!
