Oulton Broad Club Meeting - 18/08/2011


The Area 31 Racing Team finished third overall at the final Thursday night race meeting of the season at a very wet Oulton Broad. Team driver David Jones was unable to make up the 1 minute 50 seconds handicap despite putting in some good consistent lap times.

The final individual handicap meeting saw the OSY 400cc outfits of Jason Lark, Jason Freeman get the race underway shortly followed by Jamie Marr and Tony Knights in similar OSY outfits. Paul Yallop then entered the race in the 250cc GRM powered hydroplane which meant Area 31 Racing team driver David Jones was the scratch boat for the evening a full 1 minute 50 seconds after the first boat. Not bad for the restored 1973 500cc Konig Powered Hydroplane outfit.

 

Despite putting in some consistent lap times and catching and passing Paul Yallop in the 250cc hydroplane, David was unable to make up the deficit on the OSY 400cc Outfits and finished third in the first race.

 

The second race was an easy win for Paul Yallop starting a full lap ahead of David as the 250cc GRM engine burst to life to easily catch the slower OSY outfits of Jason Freeman, Tony Knights and Jamie Marr. David brought the classic 1973 500cc Konig Hydroplane restoration home in fourth place despite again lapping very consistently.

 

The final race saw Jamie Marr and Tony Knights battle each other for the entire race which enable David to potentially catch them on the last lap. As they came down to the chequered flag David was able to beat them on the line but couldn't quite make up the handicap difference to catch Jason Freeman who took the final race win.

 

The Area 31 Racing Team therefore finished the evening third overall with Tony Knights taking overall victory and Jamie Marr taking second.
