Ric wins MG club MGA class for 2012

Postby Ric » Thu Nov 22, 2012 6:16 pm

After winning the MGA class five years running, I had a horror stretch in 2010/2011, where I missed lots of events due to mechanical problems.
I managed to compete at all 14 events this year, and after the final event last weekend, I'm now the MGA champion for 2012 :D

List of previous winners: http://www.mgcc.com.au/competition/champions.shtml#MGA
Full results for 2012 competition: http://www.mgcc.com.au/competition/2012-class.shtml
2011. Missed half the events. http://www.mgcc.com.au/competition/2011class.shtml
2010. Missed the last 3 events, plus one guy was simply quicker than me... http://www.mgcc.com.au/competition/2011class.shtml


The final event was a grass motorkhana down in Geelong.

All six MGAs that competed yesterday. I came third out of six.
The light green one, and #20 were a couple of seconds faster than the rest of us. Still, my run of 29.09 was the quickest I've ever gone.

Congratulations Ric! :good:
I got this plan. It's called 'Save Ass'. And the way it works is this - I slip outta one of these windows and I run like a bastard!
