Season 37 – 1955 Grand Prix – Round 8 – Roy Hesketh

After a stint on a large flat out oval in the USA, the eighth race in the 1955 Grand Prix series sees us taking a boat back across the Atlantic Ocean to the comparatively tiny Roy Hesketh circuit in South Africa. Located on the outskirts of Pietermaritzburg in KwaZulu-Natal, the circuit was named after a South African racing driver, the late Roy Hesketh who died in in an aircraft collision 1944. Doug Aldridge, Colin Dove, Ossie Fisher, George Finch and George Shrives got together as a Consortium from Pietermaritzburg in the early nineteen fifties to first build and then maintain and improve the circuit.

During its period of operation (1953-1981) the circuit hosted rounds of the South African National Drivers Championship, and national Formula Atlantic races. The South African National Drivers Championship was a Formula One motor racing championship which generally fielded cars recently retired from the world championship although there was also a healthy selection of locally built or modified machines, and from the late 60s Formula 5000 was added to grids with Formula Two cars joining in 1973.

The circuit also hosted the Easter races - a festival of motorcycle racing over three days. Mike Hailwood, Giacomo Agostini, Barry Sheene, Kork Ballington, Jim Redman, Paddy Driver, Mike Grant, Rod Gray and Syd Stacy were regular competitors at the circuit.

Perhaps we should let team members donate tokens? After all they effectively did that in the 50's (e.g. German GP 1953 Ascari and Villoresi switched cars).

I'd be happy to loan some tokens to whomever.

The interest terms would be quite reasonable.

100%/lap, all sessions.  Takers?  Smiley

Oooh! but Clive, I only just noticed that you have fewer tokens than my own poor self.

So, I will, if you will   shifty  muhahahahaha.

Hmmm, just took a long, close look at the points table and my chances do not look good, with only 3 races left. Can we add a couple of races to the calendar because of Covid??? ( it seems that everyone else is using that excuse, so thought it was worth a try??!!   Roll Eyes Wink)

I might have to do some proper homework/practice and actually plan cars/circuits/tokens if I want to bother Mr Loynes, Dulima. JonnyO, Fran or Phil.

Arnold!!, Mabel!!  get off your fat a**s and roll the cars out of the garage. We have work to do!! But put the kettle on first for a brew and a Hobnob  Wink

This really is a difficult circuit.

Just when I thought that I had sorted a setup for the race I realised that my downshifts were a tad aggressive and likely to blow the engine before the end of the race.   Undecided

Ive  knocked 3 secs per off my PB by raising the ride hiegth to 5 inch allround . This effectively  puts the Maseratti into "off road " mode , allowing it to cut across the grass , escp. going into the esses .

Top Tip . 
Aim directly for the "keep off the grass" sign  Wink

I've loaded the chassis the drivers used into the token calculator spreadsheet.  For the next race the available tokens will be as declared in the table below (the table will also appear in the next race announcement).  The calculated values are automated but selecting the cars is a manual process so please check your tokens to make sure I haven't made a silly error.

Unfortunately Albert didn't have enough tokens for the Mercedes W196 so he overspent and consequently is disqualified.

Albert please have another look at the rules on the championship page. If you want me to translate them for you (into Portuguese?) I can do that with an internet translator but I won't be able to verify the translation, I'll have to trust the translator.

Save accelerated

Unfortunately I had problems with the frames again, this makes it difficult to guide.

I went to the end of the grid and I've been doing my recovery run.

There were many good battles, but unfortunately I ended up playing Phill.

I ask forgiveness Phill, the time you missed and ran, i thought you would make the line out of the curve, at these times, we came back a little scared for the race.

And the pribluda goes unnoticed

When I saw it, you were already on top, I braked

But I couldn't avoid the touch.  I'm glad you stayed in the race.

I was wrong for not returning the position, but in the heat of the race, hallucinated to get to Alain , I just thought about returning the position, down there in the brakes

Then it was too late.

Again, I'm sorry Phill, I try to be as clean as possible.

Congratulations Clive, for the victory and congratulations to the podium!
