I'm sure Zack Barry with be there for XRAY. I'd like to see more of his XRAY M18B (M18T buggy conversion). Hopefully we'll see something official from XRAY.

What are the locations for both of these events?

Will be representing Team Canada (Ottawa\Gatineau) again this year. For onroad with Max and maybe Kosta as usual. Offroad I'll be there. Not sure about others. I know the Montreal\Longueil guys have already mentioned they're coming for onroad. Good times.
