You know the old saying about the Post Office….”Not rain, or snow, or hail…Etc.”
Well Ice Racers do that and more…
We managed to pull off the final day of the Ice Race season, Sunday, Feb. 24th. A big shout out to the 153 entries for the PMSC Ice Race finale and marking the first time in about five years the CASC-Ice Race series has run all six weekends.
Despite the weather forecast that might have been from an apocalypse movie, a track that had a river run through it and a soaking rain and brisk wind, we got both rounds of racing in before 4:00 pm.
Yes, we eliminated Practice and shortened races to 10-laps but I hope we provided a good day of racing. The track held up (Thanks Minden Kin Club) despite the conditions.
I especially want to thank our more than 20 workers who kept things running fairly well over two days of racing.
Let me give a huge “Well Done” to our Starter and Assistant Starters and the Mock Grid crew who literally were soaking wet at the end of the day.
Our lapping and scoring team did a great job tracking cars in difficult conditions and sorting out who was in what place at the end of the race. (Cheers to Christine!!). This was critical to very close several class and overall standings.
And once again, we give a big thanks to Anne McCallum, the CASC Registration Guru for keeping track of our 153 entries and the cash and cheques in fees.
And we can’t forget the efforts of Organizer Tim Fleguel who juggled flaming chainsaws while herding cats to pull this all together.
Thanks to all.
Len Arminio, PMSC Clerk of the Course.
