Race Report: Serpent UK Challenge - July 28th to 29th 2001

The UK Serpent Challenge 2001 was hosted again this year by the Yorkshire Radio Controlled Model Racing Car Club, who have an excellent track facility in Halifax, West Yorkshire, England.

Sadly we did not attend on the Saturday, so the below is from the Sunday only.

This report is split into two pages due to the quantity of pictures. See page 2.

The Race Report

This isn’t really a race report as I was there to have fun. All I will say that is was the best meeting I have been to in a few years due to the friendly atmosphere combined with professional organisation and race directing.

A big thank you has to go to the committee and especially John and Muriel Russell for their continued involvement with the club as well as to Anne for keeping the members and visitors fed and watered.
