The weather was not really nice at the weekend, but we did manage to get some runs in. As the first outing of the year everyone was a bit rusty, so it took some time to sort out the cars. Lots of computer problems that lasted through the weekend.

The first runs at a very cold track produced a lot of tire shake, but both Duncan and Chris managed to get off the start line with .85 and .89 sixty ft. times.

After all we were quite pleased with the weekend as the cars really showed some promise, and all the problems from last year was sorted. Looking forward to the Main Event.
