Event Highlights

The field lined up for what would be a very wet race.
ejayAD is a newcomer to the club, joining after seeing what went down at Suzuka last week.
tonyandmargaret was another newcomer, this season's seen plenty of new Rookies join the field.
As the Feature Race got underway, visibility was already a major challenge to overcome.
The drivers were tentative during the opening lap, focusing on keeping control.
Once drivers got comfortable though, the racing truly began.
Some drivers got caught out by the conditions.
ejayAD tried fending off ArcticCareBear during the opening stint.
ArcticCareBear went back to red for the remainder of the season, as his previous teammate swapped to the other subteam.
pwoodg was one of many drivers to slip off the circuit.
Don Patch fought hard to keep his car in control.
PJ was the one to master the wet conditions, taking yet another race victory.
The Sprint Race gifted drivers with double the grip of what they had previously.
That produced a field of confident and ambitious drivers, all scrambling to make up spots.
This Round started in the late afternoon, after the rain had cleared.
As the field headed out to the Grand Prix section, they started to slipstream each other and bunch up.
The drivers barely gave each other an inch as the next corner approached rapidly.
The field started to spread quickly once a few drivers went off-track.
RlyR NDP Alpha had a new look for this event, now consisting of 2 red Nissans.
ejayAD showed good pace on his debut week of racing, holding his own in the midfield.
The reverse grid for the Sprint Race meant the faster drivers were having to fight their way through.
With his championship rival leading, PJ was in a hurry to pass by the rest of the field.
The sun started to set early, ArcticCareBear was 12 seconds in front at this point.
PJ finally got up to 2nd place, and started to close the gap down (as his VTEC kicked in, 'yo).
This race would end in total darkness.
CraigO fended off ejayAD for the final podium spot.
ArcticCareBear took his second win of the season, and his first ever Fastest Lap.
