      Weather got better for the race in the afternoon, although it was still a bit windy. Great race to watch.

      Some technical infringements in one new class which were apparently sorted before they went out on track

      Indeed, but they got off on the grass at that last start but the CTAS coverage wasn't close enough to show us exactly what happened, and they had a good comeback from that - well done boys .

      His favourite action? What about you Kick were you happy with the weekend?

      I watched a bit of the CTAS coverage and that was pretty good compared to previous efforts including the post race interviews.
