Saturday morning and we were presented with a damp track after it had rained all Friday night. The crew at BADMCC had the water vacuumed from the track in an hour and the start of practice was delayed to allow the track to dry.
The drivers briefing was at 0930 and the racers were split into two groups for open practice of 25 minutes starting at 1030. The race format was 4 from 7 to count and 10 minute qualifiers. The current track lap record was 49.034sec and 12 laps was the target. The 1st heat started at 1130.
