Sunday was a Happy Father's Day for all the HJDBC Dads who were able to attend Series 2, Round 2 as the sun shone for a great round. Who wouldn't want to spend Father's Day fueling bikes and changing spark plugs? The day began with coffee as usual to ensure everyone was ready for the day, bikes scrutineered, riders briefing done and two groups were formed for the morning events. The nippers, 50cc's and Mini-wheels teamed up to compete in the same event areas and the 65cc's and 85cc's worked together on other event areas. Thanks to the efficient marshaling all events; ring return, bending, orange, accler8, accelerate and brake, footing and non-footing clover were all complete before lunch which allowed time for citing laps on the mini-cross track as well.
A good break was had by all at lunchtime including a special birthday celebration for our club president. Happy Birthday to Jeff. A huge thanks from all club members and riders for all you do for our club.
With a much warmer day than usual riders enjoyed the extra break but were refueled on lunch (and cake) to get out and race on the track. All races were heat finals so two rounds were fit in easily for the afternoon. The dry weather also bought tough riding conditions with a dusty track making it hard for some riders to even see where they were going and a few riders stalling in the sand. There were plenty of action packed races though with each round of racing giving different results in many classes.
