ARCR 2014 Round 1

After an unscheduled track change, which resulted in a quite raceable new surface, we had a bumper race day. ~80 entrants from over 50 drivers. Thats amazing.

Since the track was new and very slippery, we had a first round where it was just open practise. Didn't count for a qualifying round. Then we had a vote at the drivers meeting to run 2 qualifiers and the normal 3 finals. This format worked out ok and all in all the track got better and better as the day went on. There was a minor issue with the timing loop, and we removed the wagon wheel bump section to compensate for it. That section has hard on some cars as it was, and the resulting corner was actually great to drive too.

As with all new things, there were some teething issues with the track. Some of the jumps had the wrong angle for some classes and some were a little hard to get used to. We'll learn from those experiences and move forward. The new area of the track is largely variable so we can change it up as needs be. The main thing is we now have a good base. We'll replace things as time goes on with proper dirt sections (now that we have access to clay) and modify the jumps as much as we can. We're consulting with experienced racers to get the designs down pat for any changes made from here on in.

Not sure what has happened with the results for 2WD SCT and 4WD Buggy C. I'll check them out and probably manually build it up. Alycat has spat this out but its not complete.

Racing was a 2 qualifiers and 3 mains.
