The Nitto 3K Series promoted the fifth round at the Bira Circuit a couple of weeks ago. Despite some Bangkok competitors being unable to come down because of the floods, there were still around 100 cars and trucks racing.
Close racing was evident in all categories, and these ‘club’ style meetings are providing good entertainment for the spectators and at B. 50 to enter represents the best value for money motor racing around.
We compete in the Retro series (pre 1985) and the usual trio of Henk Kiks (B-Quik Porsche 944 supercharged), Gavin Charlesworth (EBC Brakes V8 BMW E30) and Urs Schonenberger (Proton Trading BMW E36) all were very equal at the front, with one win each during the two day meeting.
Securitas Escort in close company
Our Securitas Retro Escort Mk 1 had a high speed misfire that defied diagnosis all weekend, but despite this we still came home with a third and a fourth class place trophies, and enjoyed some very close racing. Our weekend was made even more pleasurable with a sausage sizzle on the Sunday put on by the Sausage King people. Thanks, Barry!
The next Nitto 3K meeting will be on December 10 and 11. Mark it in your diaries!
