ARCR Championship Meet 5 Complete!

We recieved wonderful weather on race day, despite some shakey looking days prior. The track was in prime form, although since it was drying out fast, dust was starting to be an issue. Luckily we have a small army of dedicated broom, blower and wetters ready to pounce on trouble spots! Good work to all, especially Phillip!
Stadium truck was rotated out this time, and despite the Election being on, we managed a very strong turnout. Racers managing to pre-vote or dash off to the local highschool to vote.
Sadly there was no Footy on, so there was no food available on the grounds, but we had a 1/2 hour lunch, so racers were able to dash off to the local shops ( the pies from the BP were pretty damn fine) for life sustaining food stuffs.
Overall the marshaling was pretty good, few drops in numbers as the finals rolled in.
We had some very good racing happening, quite a few battles for the win, even down to the 2WD buggy C racing :)
The new radio sound setup was in place today and seemed to be pretty positive from those I talked with. Nice and clear all day.

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 .
