F3F Welsh Open 2012

Had a great time in Wales at the weekend, only made one mistake when I left the trusty Cyril in Start mode for one of my runs, still got a 48.xx but could have been better!

Experimented with lighter ballast settings to maximise the climb out in the 30 secs available and realised I need to drop in later and really use all that time to the full. Tried to be tight as possible on the bases, but also need to go a little longer before rolling to inverted when doing the reversal turn and be more confident with the base turns.

Still 15th out of 42 isn't too bad for my first Welsh open and will be practising hard now for Eastbourne in a few weeks time. A little video below, lost a lot of footage due to stuff being out of focus, and the lighting went a little out of control, time to invest in a new camera me thinks :)

A short video of the day, EM style seemed to be the best strategy, not much lift for reversal.

Long Mynd

A few photo's from BMFA F3F Rd 6 Long Mynd below, weak lift and variable wind made for challenging conditions but Simon Thornton took the win, followed by Mark Redsell in second and Gary Harrison in third. Only 4 rounds were completed as the wind shifted and we moved from Ashes Hollow to Pole Cot. Next weekend it's the Welsh Open!
