MSCC Speed Championship

Three Sisters Sprint (Wigan)

5th AUGUST 2012

After heavy overnight rain, the weather was overcast with occasional sunny intervals, light showers and heavy downpours.

The circuit was set up with the start in the pit lane exit, in the double-lap format, finishing on Pentith Climb. We had a convoy run, two practice and just two competitive runs.

6th AUGUST 2011

The weather was overcast with the sun occasionally peeping through the cloud. We had a heavy shower first thing and the track was still wet for the first practise run.

The competition runs were interrupted when a competitor in another class had an engine problem and dropped oil around half of the circuit. There was a delay while the marshals assisted by the Morgan competitors cleaned the track up. This was followed by a second convoy run to let everyone see where the oil was.

The circuit was set up with the start in the pit lane exit, in the double-lap format, finishing on Pentith Climb. We had two practice and four competitive runs.

7th AUGUST 2010

The weather was overcast all day. We had showers all morning that kept the track wet for both practise runs. The rain held off for a couple of hours after lunch, so the first timed run was on a drying track and the second timed run was dry. With the first Morgans on the track for their third timed run, the rain came down very heavy. With this circuit used mostly for karting, the rain lifts the two-stroke oil out of the tarmac and all grip disappears.

The circuit was set up with the start in the pit lane exit, in the double-lap format, finishing on Pentith Climb. We had two practice and three competitive runs.

5th AUGUST 2007

Amazingly for this summer, the day was dry and we enjoyed sitting in the sunshine between runs. There were ten SpeedMog competitors at the event, in class 1D - MSCC Parc Ferme Speed Championship.

The circuit was set up with the start in the pit lane exit, in the double-lap format, finishing on Pentith Climb. We had two practice and two competitive runs.

1st OCTOBER 2006

The day started with showers, making the track very slippery for first practice runs. The rain held off until just before the third timed run so the track was dry but still slippery for the first two timed runs.

The circuit was set up with the start in the pit lane exit, finishing on Pentith Climb.
