Bushy Park Report
Well the first event for the year saw excitement from the crowd that gathered steadily throughout the day.
The limited minis hit the track first weighted up to 770kg. 'Set the Sled' flew out the blocks and grabbed a first followed closely by 'Rotary Hoe' liking the hard track, third was 'Tossa'.
In the 825 kg class 'Tossa' managed a first closely followed by 'Whiplash' and '2 Tuff' third
The 900 kg saw the points change again as '2 Tuff' got the first, 'Rotary Hoe' second and 'Whiplash' third. This should make for an interesting season as the tractors are close. The track caused a bit of carnage as Barmed Blitza chewed up a diff as did set the sled but unfortunately when the diff went the transmission followed by splitting in two.
The super minis were keen to get into the action with the biggest field nine competing tractors put on a great display.
The 860 kg class was decided in a pull off as five tractors managed a full pull. 'Jaws' managed a first, 'Oh Yeah' second and 'Little Willie' third.
The 890 kg class was again won by 'Jaws', second 'The Marshall' and third 'Oh Yeah'.
920 kg saw 'Little Willy' grabbing a first 'Jaws' second and 'Success 2' a third
The open minis put on a great display of horsepower with the track not allowing the high horsepower tractors to gain grip on the track 'Stone Cold' managed a first in the 900 kg class followed by 'Blown Income' then 'Stampede' third. The 925 kg class saw 'Blown Income' first, 'Stampede' second and 'Raptor' third.
Many thanks to the bushy park committee for putting on a great day and for those that stayed for the entertainment the band was great pumping out the tunes until late at night.
Some teams have a bit of homework to do before they come out for another skid and with the next points event scheduled for Tooradin on the 21st January 2017.
