Once again the bravest that Banbridge (& Phelim!) had to offer, stepped up to show what they are made of in the high speed, low flying world of Pylon Racing. That’s what the movie trailer would sound like! the reality is a bundle of blokes in muddy field wondering is this really a good idea.
Of course it is! The open Pylon usually provides some good craic & with half the models being exactly the same, in the form of the new Strykers, a good test of pilots. Then of course there is me, who shows up with a leaky fuel tank & a dodgy throttle servo on a model that would never have won anyway. Yep, i’ll go & wave the flag.
The results were close, with only 2 seconds between 1st & 2nd after three ten lap rounds, so extremely close.
The Exciteables, it was exciting, Really!
