As promised, was a great nite of racing. Weather was good, but a little dry. Their next thing to get would be a water tractor, to keep the dust down some. But I don't mind the dust, just adds to the fun. They have also added lights around the track to let the drivers know if there is a caution flag up. Also added is a pace vehicle, the little guy with the lime green shirt on the atv. 6 years old. Classes are, juniors, 1 cylinder, 2 cylinder, 2 cylinder super stock and 2 cylinder modified. When you really look at these machines, there not really a lawn mower any more. Boy those 2 cylinder ones really move.
Enjoy the pictures,

Noel

Sorry about the last picture.

Watching these are fun. I like the ones that still look like tractors. Some of these are getting to look like go carts....but still fun to watch.

I really don't know karl. I would only be guessing, that around the track, they would be going 40 to 50 kilometres. I have heard that one of them, will go 60 kilometres, straight flat out, not on the track thou.

Thanks for the pics & report, Noel, but now more questions:

 

How are the races set up?  ....Heat races? ...Then final? 

 

...Or, one race per class?

 

How many laps per race?

 

The dust appears to be about the same as driving on PEI's dirt roads. :smilewink:

Bruce, 10 laps per class, 2 races each class, all classes for last race, 25 laps. It changes depends on the amount of time they have for all the races. Last nite a fella takeing pictures had a stroke or heart attack in the centre of the track. Firefighters on site, which was a good thing for the guy. So things like that take up time. Accidents take up time, so it just depends on how much time is available.
Lots of dust, for sure.

Noel.

It looks like a lot of fun and they are supporting a good cause. A water truck or tractor would be a good addition though. Thanks for the pictures.
