What a great event that the great members of BQMRA put on for all of us.
I was also nice to see all the people that came from out of state to the first event of the year. That is a good sign as the car counts should only get better as the indoor season goes on. The Columbus indoor event proves again that the best in America come to compete every year at these races.
The track was very good and racy for the first race. Actually had some cars bike at the first race - go Larry!
I think it also needs to be pointed out that the extra five dollars we paid at entry for each car went to secure a full time flagman and chief steward for the day. It again was nice not having to find workers for these positions as well as not hearing workers being called for all day long over the PA. It also keeps the day’s events much more consistent.
Ross was happy with the awards he received at the indoor events this past weekend. I did hear some comments that the Juniors would have liked to have received a trophy.
It was too bad that the raceceiver did not show up as expected because as I am sure that as most of us know that would have sped up the day’s events big time.
The starts and re-starts. Some were perfect and were started going into turn three like was stated in the drivers/handler meeting and some went back to picking up the pace coming out of turn two. This needs to be addressed and enforced at the next event.
I heard that there is talk of some of the future races being webcast. Is there any truth to that?
Also heard a lot of good comments from the families that ran the new Briggs Animal class for the first time at the Indoor event.
See everyone in December.
