2021 LSOR Round 3 - Race Report

Large Scale Off Road

The weekend of 22nd and 23rd of May, saw Round 3 of the BRCA Large Scale Off Road (LSOR) National Championships at Ebberston RC – and with 53 drivers turning up for the event and the catering van on site ready, it was set to be a good weekend! 

Drivers flocked from all accross the country to the beautiful North Yorkshire Coast, ready for an action packed weekend of racing! 

Saturday - Practise and Qualifying

The track opened at 10am Sharp. Drivers made there way out to the track and the rostrum quickly filled up with drivers trying to get the best set-up's ahead of qualification later that day, however this proved dificuly for many, due to the half grass/dirt and half astro-turf track, the track was ever changing, and was hard to find a constant setup that would work for both sections.

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! After Scrutineering, qualification was under way, with 2WD our first, followed by SCT and then finally the 4WD finidshed the day off! st out was the 4WD class, followed by the 2WD and then the SCT class! 

Sunday - Qualifying and Finals!!

Sunday soon came around and the sun was beaming down on the track! The track had settled down and was ready for a full day of racing ahead, it was definately feeling drier out there than it did the day before! The track opened early for those drivers that arrived on the Sunday morning to get some last minute practise in before the 2 rounds of qualfying went underway! After lunch qualifying was done, and it was time to start the finals, with the track ever changing from qualifyng heat to qualifying heat and from final to final - it once again was a fight for the top 7 spaces in each class for automatic entry into the main finals!
