Another Weekend of Racing (Day 2)

It was the morning of Sunday, June 21st as we woke up in Bancroft after having done a lapping day at Shannonville the previous day. We were in Bancroft with a mission - I was in second place in class in the MLRC rallycross championship, behind Mat Janiak. If I won this race, I'd have a chance at winning the championship in our class. My chances were slim - at the KWRC event, despite us putting in a newer engine and running good gravel tires Mat was so much faster we struggled to understand where he found the extra time. After seeing Mat's run times at that event, we really thought I'd have no chance against him at MLRC, but that didn't stop me from trying.

Another Weekend of Racing (Day 1)

My friends invited me to attend a lapping day at Shannonville on Saturday June 20th. We already had the MLRC rallycross booked for Sunday, and figured - why not - it will give us a chance to spend some time with the car, practice our driving technique, and really get ready for the competition runs on Sunday. Sure tarmac and gravel are very different surfaces, but racing is racing, and there's no such thing as bad seat time.
