This last weekend we had an electric touring car race in the island of Crete. The track is near Heraklion (Iraklion, maybe). It's quite small and tight.
Well... I also ran the touring car, finished somewhere near the end and that's it about car racing!
Of course I had the JABBER with me, complete with sets of tires: Roadies soft and Mediums, plus the Pros that came with the bike.
I arranged to travel by boat with some TC friends, using my friends' Fanatix Models (my LHS actually!) van to carry our stuff. The boat left mainland at 9pm on Friday evening and arrived at Heraklion on Saturday morning around 6.30 am.
So we first went to the track owner's restaurant for... breakfast and then we headed to the track, which is about 15km south of the port.
As soon as I started unpacking my stuff on the pit table, the Cretan drivers gathered around the bike, asking the usual questions and demanding to see it on track!
I was a bit skeptical, having seen videos of the track, and I was hoping to "safely" do a few laps with my TC first and then try the bike.
But the public opinion prevailed, so I readied the bike!
I was alone in the track, so it was very easy and comfortable!
I had a friend shoot some video, too of my first laps, where you will see that I did a couple of wheelies (fantastic traction with Medium tires) and I also lost the exit points of some turns, repeatedly!

JABBER 2015 @ Xtreme Speedways, Crete, 25.4.2015 (0 min 42 sec)


During Saturday I managed to run a couple more batteries, with the track lap timing system announcing I was doing steady 24's and occassionally a 23.7 to 23.8 laptime! (The fast TC guys were doing 16.1 to 16.3, I was doing 18.8's to 19.5's, oh well!!).

At some point I realized that I needed more brakes, so I mounted the front brake kit (more wow's from TC drivers: "Look! A working front brake"!).
With the use of the front brake I managed to do those 23-second laps! Not a big improvement, but I felt a lot safer to push a bit more.

On Sunday, we had the race, so it was quite difficult to focus on my car racing AND the bike, also having lost two TC qualifiers due to crashes (yes, I also crash the TC, not only the bike!), so I had to take care of the car, as well.

After the TC race was over, in the afternoon, I managed to run a few batteries with the bike, regretting that I didn't try the rear Pro tire, on a track with so high traction and good ambient temps (around 25C all day). I was running a (very!) used Medium rear and the kit's Pro front.

On Sunday evening we got back to the boat and by 6.30 am we were back at Piraeus port.
I drove to the hobby shop with the Greek TC Champion, Nikos Georgiades (6th in the TC race) in the shop's van. I had left my car at the HS' back yard. (See the Smart at the second video, besides the shop's van!).

He kindly requested that I stay with him for a couple of hours, till he would officially open the hobby shop, so I obliged.
While we were sitting in the back yard, drinking coffee and eating some muffins with all my stuff on the ground, I asked him... Would you like a go with the bike?
Why not? He said!
(Mind you, he is also an excellent rc car body painter, and he has done my January "Valencia" paint for the bike, and as we speak he is preparing the Greek Team's rc bike bodies for the Warm Up. Watch this space for pics some time in the weekend!).

So, here he was, in this so small place doing slow turns!
The man has got the bike, definitely!!! And to think he always drives only with a pistol type radio!

Later in the day, I looked at my familiar Greek RC News site, the www.rcdevil.gr and I was happily surprised to see a lot of pics of my bike at the track!
At the time, I didn't realize someone was taking photos! haha!

Here's the link to the photos:

Check at pages 7 and 8.


Here are some of the photos from the track:
