Congrats to Steve, Pablo, and Andy for the podium.

 

Nice line up of 50's sports cars.

 

Thanks to Lowrider, the drivers and helpers at North London SME for putting on the event.

:)

Okay, this has been a long time coming, but here are the entries currently in The Driftin' Fifties proxy race in no particular order.
18 total at this time.  As information comes in, I'll make changes. 
If you are a builder or want to help with identification or add details, please send me a private message and I will update.  That way we can keep this thread clean.

Updated some information and added the weights for each entry.
Information provided by Sir Steve Kempson, the proxy director and heck of a nice guy.

Round 2 is on this weekend. :)

 

I've put a simple website together with Steve Kempson's blessing, as I thought it might be a good thing to get all the stuff in one place, to make it easier to find.

 

Check it out and let me know if you think there is anything that is wrong, and/or could look better.

Driftin Fifties Proxy Race, 2018

Steve, I'm not participating, but  your website's format is good. There is a lot of good information in one place.

A Ferrarai has split the Masers, but not by much.

 

Congrats to Steve (again) for the win, and to Greg and Pablo for getting on the other 2 podium steps.

Round 4 was run and won Wednesday evening in the Old Dart, and we have a new face on the top step of the podium.

Ferrari #4 by Greg Gilbert, eased out Maseratti #3 by Pablo, knocking Maseratti #17 by Steve Kempson down to third.

Congratulations guys on the podium.

Ron Kiyamura pushed his way up the field with two of his entries running 4th & 5th. Well done Ron.

20180822-spreadsheet.jpg

 

The Standing Sheet to round 4 looks like this, with one round to go;

results-to-r4laps.jpg

 

No photo's posted yet, but with a bit of luck we will get to see some of the fun after the boys get a good night's sleep.

 

Round 5 is a little while off, happening on October 20th.

 

Don't forget that you can check out previous rounds, and the cars on the Driftin Fifties website.
