All in all, a great day of SSDC racing and chillin’ out at the Barn, even though we had a bizarre interlude early on which left us all rather unsettled...
Once we got on Mike’s excellent track and immersed ourselves in the familiarity of a Nascar team race, things were very much better.
It was a select bunch for the morning -

Huge congrats to all our winners and many thanks to everyone who came along and enjoyed
