Oulton Broad Club Meeting - 12/05/2011


After a sucessful practice evening when the team broke 50 seconds with the 1964 500cc restored Crescent powered hydroplane, driver David Jones and the Area 31 Racing Team were looking to go quicker and possibly beat the long standing 500cc Crescent lap record during the first Thursday night club meeting of the season at Oulton Broad.

 


The Area 31 Racing team were competing with the classic 1964 500cc Crescent powered against the likes of Tony Knights, Craig Speller, James Marr, Jason Freeman, Geoff Lowther and Luke Hugman in the OSY 400cc outfits, and Wayne Turner and Paul Yallop in the 250cc hydroplane outfits.

 

The individual handicap event meant Area 31 Racing Team driver David started in the middle of the group of OSY racers but soon found his way past James Marr, Jason Freeman and then passed Tony Knights to put him into second position.

 

Lapping in the low 50 seconds David then had some clear water to try and catch Geoff Lowther. Unfortunatley the 1964 500cc Crescent engine didnt want to perform like the previous week and David had to settle for second place behind Geoff in the OSY 400cc outfit.

 

The second race saw David struggle to catch the likes of James Marr, Tony Knights and Jason Freeman as the Crescent started to get slower with every lap. David pulled out of the race to ensure the engine didnt sieze. On retunring to the pits David and team mechanics Andy, Steven and Phillip soon noticed a burnt bottom piston which put an end to the teams racing for the night after what had been a promising start.
