What a blast Sunday was on Whitesheet for round 1 of the Southern winter league. Before the flying it’s quite an undertaking to host 4 rounds of the winter league and thanks have to go to Gromitt and the Cubitt Dynasty for making the league happen. The standard of flying has real come on since the start of the winter league and the turnip pickers are becoming a force to be reckoned with.
Martin Drewitt won round after round with his Pittbull, flying a very fast and smooth style.
it may be fast but it's still Pink Martin!
It was fantastic to see John Philips arriving with his brand new Willow 2 for a ‘trimming out and tuning race’ and even better to see the model go so well and pick up it’s first round win. I’ve no doubt that the Willow 2 is going to deliver many more round wins to come.
The race had the look of a vintage rally at one stage, Phil Taylors Fletcher and team Cubitt both campaigning Falcons- a model doeesn’t stop being fast because it’s more than 12 months old!
Some new faces were at the comp as well, including Neil Rodgers flying my old Merlow, having fun racing is what it’s all about.
