ARCR First Championship season raceday!

The weather held out (minus a 5 min shower early on) and the track was in good shape. Little muddy, but nothing drastic. Since we had to have a previous rain out, we re-ran the origional schedule today which was 2WD Buggy, 2WD SCT, Novice, 4WD Buggy and Stadium Truck. we had a good turn out (~ 39 drivers, most doing two classes) so we ran 3 groups of 2WD buggy again.

As the day wore on racing dried up the track quite well and grip began to change ( for the better in most parts ). Given all the rain we had previously, I was amazed at how well the track held up, and fun racing was had by all despite the cold. Everyone was madly cleaning tires between races.

Thanks again to 'TAG Racing' for the lend of the software!

Once again Travis Bull was on hand to capture the action in real time.
All finals videos are available here at his YouTube Channel

Racing was 5 min races with three qualifiers and two mains .
