ARCR Championship Complete!

And our first Championship comes to a close. Twas a glorious day weather wise and track conditions were great. Thanks to Casey, Marco and others for stepping up to the track maintenance duties, the track was kept in great condition with water and blowers in full force. The 27'C temp was perfect for a water and dry down.

With the exception of the usual bumper cars in the 4WD SCT, the racing was pretty clean. We had designated Race Directors and we were ready to keep the rules adhered to. I think this had a good effect on the driving and by the end of finals, we had very clean racing in terms of corner cutting and self sactioned stop goes.

4WD Buggy was particularly good in the finals, with another great battle between Casy, Marco and Troy. In 2WD SCT we saw some great battles also for the top 4 positions, even some point sharing going on.

With some of our members going to the Vic Titles, numbers were slightly down, but the fun factors was still as high as ever. We also had a very tasty Cup Cake donation raising money for the club, thanks go out to Craig Blessing and his wife. Those Caramel cupcakes were so good! ( I may have lunched on them...)

The new ARCR gazebo was in play today, we setup a little father back from the track to attempt to keep the timing system out of the dust. This seemed to work well and will be repeated in the coming race days. With the bigger tent we have more room for both the computer gear and our own setup, and it makes us a little more open to the members instead of us craming into the one tent. More expansion here will be needed next year for scrutineering, but it looks good for now. If anyone had a photo of it can they send it my way?

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

Once again Travis Bull was on hand to capture the action in real time.
