Nottingham Sunday 27 April Booking office now open!
« on: April 21, 2014, 10:45:02 AM »

Hi Folks

The booking office for our next event at the fantastic Colwick Park is now open :-))
Please see our website for details on how to book in (entries to Mark Wild):

http://www.bmprs.co.uk/

If this turns out to be half as good as our last race at Branston, we will be in for another cracking good day.

This photo shows Kurt's F1 Cat racing in the T1 Cat class recently gaining 2nd place:


Spectators and members are all welcome to come along and join in the fun!

Cheers
Craig :-)

Hi all


Yes Nottingham is a great venue! Should make for some great racing as Branston certainly became an outstanding event for the first race of the season. Some fine racing, so great new competitors, boats and engines, most important of all some fab banter, good humour, and fun!


Hope to enjoy Colwick park as much as I did at branston last week.




Cheers

Hi All

For those that missed the previous race at Branston, these two short vid clips give a taste of the type of action to look forward to at the next venue: :-))

Well what a cracking event Nottingham turned out to be!
We all expected to get soaked even without going into the lake and yet it stayed dry all day. It was great to see everyone mucking in to help with lap counting and rescue and thanks to Mark and the host club members the day was splendidly organised :-))

I was amazed at how choppy the water was and it certainly made for some challenging and exciting driving :-)
Here are a few photos:

A good launch from Luke (of Digger's boat):


Mark Beesley's C Class boat:


Stratos by Mike Gelson:


Mercury by Garry Dickson:


Conquest by Kurt Cave:


Starting a stint in the rescue boat:


The results are now available on the website: http://www.bmprs.co.uk/

Cheers

Hi Martin

That particular video footage was of actually taken at the previous race at Branston.
However I have unseen video footage of the this Nottingham event and I will hopefully by the weekend be uploading a short clip or two to share with everyone :-))

Hi all.
Fab pictures Craig which really bring to life the excitement and enjoyment of the racing at Nottingham on Sunday.


Nottingham club, as always. Made us welcolme, with rescue boat, refreshments etc. have to say, pleased it is a big rescue boat at the chop out on the lake was 6-10 inches!!!!


I predicted the rough water boats and gentle throttled finger drivers would win the races!!!! Lol!!! Mark Beesley was test amount to that!!!


A lot of racing was done at idle-half throttle. Not many boats could be fully opened up for the race duration as is usual.


Fantastic day out. Thought the Patriots were superb in the rough, look forward to seeing more from the tk engines in future outings.
Delighted to see Kurt (and his missus) enjoy some well earned success!!!


Above my opinions only. But all in all a cracked of a day.


Pics and full results now available on bmprs site,

Also, 10 out of 10 to Judith......

Not only did she take fantastic photos, she made them available amazingly quickly which is a time consuming job in itself.

Well done Judith :-)) :-)) :-))

If you are following this thread, can you spare two minutes of your time to watch the two short clips below?

I only race in the smaller sized A-Class and that was challenging for me! How do these guys keep their boats on the water??????  There is a lot to be said in that old saying, "To finish first, you have to finish the race" !!

What a ballistic day's racing that was!

Hi Buddy
Yes you missed a cracker of an event. Garry has uploaded even more pics onto the website and his connotations against the most recent are worthy of viewing for fun - they certainly made me laugh out loud!

This link should take you to the Nottingham photos on the site:
