ARCR 2014 Round 8

Having had quite a few weeks between races, everyone would agree it was great to get out on the track again. Thanks to the gentle weather and the tending by Casey, the track was in fine form.

Weather wise the day was great. It kept threatening to rain but never did. The sun was just warm and the cars were running well.

We had a bumper crowd again, over 70 entries in all. We started a little late, aroud 9:30. Come finals we were down a few and had two groups of 3 or less and after a quick talk to the drivers in question we did our first multi class final joining the 2WD Buggy D class with the Stadium Truck B class. We also ran 9 on the 4WD SCT class and that resulted in a drop of 2 groups, saving us quite a bit of time allowing us to finish around 4:30. We placed the buggies on the first two grid positions and the Stadium trucks following in their qualified order. This allowed the MOD 2WD buggy cars to 'get ahead' and out of the way of the Stadium trucks who were running the specified 10.5 motors. This seemed to work well and drivers were happy with the racing.
