Locost Motor Sport 2
To give you an idea of the performance of the 1300 x-flow Locosts I have done a quick chart of the average speed of the race winner in each of the races at Cadwell over the weekend. There was some rain on Sunday, which is why Locost Race 2 was so much slower than Locost Race 1!

On the grid ready to go....
The rush down the start / finish straight into Coppice for the first time...
Kevin Lucas turns to climb the Mountain
The well prepared car of Kevin Lucas following an earlier altercation - note the cosmetic surgery on the nosecone - very neat work with the gaffer tape!
Alex Eacock's bright example
The best liveried car for me, Ged Sidnell's "John Player Special" inspired Locost
The "Slow" race on Sunday
Derek Linley on his way down Park Straight.
Even a 1300 x-flow is enough to throw out the back end as James Davies discovered on the exit of Charlies!
The fast race on Sunday follewed some lunch time rain...
