ARCR Championship Meet 3 Complete!

Once again another grand day of racing has been had at Mitchell Park. It seems its either near perfect or rained out.

The track was one again great to drive on, tire wear was good. It was well tested by one Mark Rogers with his temperature gauge on hand. Even though the ambient temperature didn't seem to rise much to its forcasted 17degreesC, the track apparently went up around 5degC. Nice.

We had a bumper signup, 68 or so total entries from around 40 drivers, so well on our way to having established numbers there. I think our membershipd has now passed the 50 mark also. Keep them coming!

Our own Kulkyne generator met one of its brethren as the Mildura crew went self sufficient, which may or may not have also been used as a makeshift tire warming station (there is a photo I'll try get a hold of :-) ).

We used the drivers straight ( or Front straight) as the grid for the finals and it worked pretty well but we may modify it next time ( staggering left and right and making sure we place the 1st place marker out of the range of the timing loop). Good to know our loop has such good range however, I had worried cars would miss it if they rode the inner wall a little, but it seems ok, Good job track team!

We trialed using a two speakers system, one on the drivers stand and one in the middle of the pits. Alas Sean Perry was going going to miss most of the day so thanks to Sean and Trevor for lending their radios to us for the day. We had an new radio transmitter and it seemed to give clear loud sound out via both devices so we'll probably continue that next time, equiptment allowing. Maybe even add a third.

Thanks again to 'TAG Racing' for lending us Alycat software!

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