Rochester and Okemo Recap
Written by Ian Poilot
Back to Rochester for another cone slingin’, dust breathing, rooting tooting FUN time!
The day was full of surprises on the course. Drivers were taken by surprise when the course was adjusted due to ruts. Eventually, most figured it out. Going back to that saying in EVERY drivers meeting… “Read the cones, not the dirt”.
A few competitors seemed to be going after the cone award with some very high numbers, we won’t mention any one that seemed too froggy to get them. Other drivers even Dazzled us with some dirt flinging to keep us on the seat of our pants.
Okemo! That was a Great Day (said in your best Craig Ferguson accent)! Numbers were low due to a hill climb and an autocross scheduled for the same time. So there were only 48 drivers and we each got 13 laps totaling 624 laps on this day! The dust was not as bad as the past. Everyone seemed to enjoy that fact.
There appeared to be a decent amount of new drivers. Some of the more experienced drivers enjoyed passing on their knowledge. But they all seemed to have that bug… and wanted more. The course was somewhat technical in the morning and in the afternoon got nice and fast and flowy!
The next few months will be off as a bunch of drivers and crew are racing and/or volunteering at NEFR and CTTC over the end of summer. Come join us! Once those wrap, we will be back and itching to sling the dirty dirt.
