Hey Randy good luck today and tonight I will see you tomorrow.

I thought I was the only one who wasnt happy with the acers, but I guess I'm wrong there.

Thanks Stephen, see you tomorrow at JBRL.

I have been caught by them a few times, normally only a 27 fee which is peanuts in comparison to the cost saving.

Default First race experiences

The 4 BD's we have here in Finland attended all in the 4th race of 2005 national series.

All drivers had about 3-4 times (1,5 weeks) of practise done before the race. We all swithed to BD from CGM.

The cars performed VERY well and the results were really good.

One BD driver participated in modified and he was able to get his best position for finals so far and also best personal result in B-final this year. Driver was extremely happy with the car.

Three BD drivers participated in stock class. Also with impressive results. All three are usually in A-finals (we have around 30 drivers participating in stock).
This time one BD took TQ in A-finals and also overall stock class victory for the first time this year. It was a close race agains the two xray05's coming in as no 2 and 3.
Another BD took 4th place improving from his normal position.
The fourth BD suffered from lots of bad luck in collisions but finished 6th in overall results. Car was great but traffic was difficult.

All drivers are looking forward to next race which will be the first outside asphalt race for this year.
