Practice is done, and the winners have been determined. I will now give you the top 3 of the event:
1st Lee Martin
Lee is looking rather racey, so don’t go by the seeding result. I expect Lee to win this with relative ease. I would say the only way he won’t win is if he loses. By that I mean if he jumps into the pool, or cartwheels into the tree at the end of the straight. Stamp it.
2nd Neil Cragg
Neil hasn’t really had the best event yet, but it’s good for him that he is using up all his bad luck before it matters. I expect him to start leaning back more on the rostrum, and putting in good times. Once the mains come around, he will be up there close to Lee, as always.
3rd Renaud Savoya
Savoya is the surprise of this event, and top seed after practice. For me it was quite clear already from the warm up that he would be good though. His car is very good, and I haven’t been able to watch him here as we are in the same heat, but at the warm up it looked like he has set his car and his electronics up to suit him, and how he likes to drive, not some generic setup. I could be wrong, but that’s what it looks like. Personalised and fast. I think if he keeps it together he will be on the podium.
7th-10th all the normal guys and girl.
As for me, I will make the main, and qualify for the Reedy, so I can beat Brent Thielke.
