2021 LSOR Round 2 - Race Report

Large Scale Off Road

Last weekend 24th & 25th April, saw Round 2 of the BRCA Large Scale Off Road (LSOR) National Championships at North Ings Raceway – the first national event of the section since the outbreak of COVID-19, with 64 drivers in attendance, it was set to be a good weekend!

 

The weekend everyone has been waiting for was finally upon us! Racers from all accross the country started to arrive on Friday ready for a weekend of racing and action! With the weather looking good it was time to start the proceedings! 

Saturday - Practise, Qualifying and 2019 Trophy Presentation

The track opened at 10am Sharp, and was in tip top condition. Drivers made there way out to the track, for which for many of them, may have been the first time in over a year! The rostrum quickly filled up with drivers trying to get the best set-up's ahead of qualification later that day!

As per previous years, due to the ever growing size of the LSOR section, the track closed at 14:30, ready for the first round of qualification to start at 15:30! With the sun beaming down accross the Lincolnshire Fen, first out was the 4WD class, followed by the 2WD and then the SCT class!  

Due to the unusal year of 2020, the section had been un-able to provide the 2019 Class Winners with their trophies and so after qualifying had finished and the track was closed, a 2019 Trophy Presentation was commenced!

Unfortunately, at the start of 2020, the section sadly lost one of their own, Syd, and so the trophy was collected by his friends, Guy Page, Leon Satchell and Roger Smith. The trophy has been given to the family in memory of Syd.

Well done to all Racers in the 2019 season! 

Sunday - Qualifying and Finals!!

Sunday morning soon rocked round, and with the brisk breeze comming in accross the Lincolnshire Fen, it was a very cold start, which soon warmed up as the sun made its way out in the morning, just before trhe first round of qualfying! With some drivers turning up for the Sunday only, it was a fight for the top 7 spaces in the main A Finals! The driver of the day has to go to Craig Orman, who qualified in the 4WD C Final, but managed to bump up all the way to the A Final and finish in 4th Place! Well done Craig!
