VRAA

Round 7

Qualifying & Race

 

 

After a considerable wait a Canada Post representative finally notified Ring Director Fritz Stroebl that a package would be delivered later that afternoon. Day turned into night and open practice for another class concluded under the lights before anything would arrive.  
Permanent segment markers (in place of temporary straw bales) line the track for proxy race scoring. These markers were installed prior to this years' VRAA race. Nice and shiny!
The next morning team mechanics gathered at the crack of dawn to inspect & repair any damage to their cars. The pits were a hive of activity.
The field waited in the pits for the signal to start practice.
In the rush one of the Ferrari mechanics fell off the ladder - caught on camera by a spectator...
Camera crews from UberslotTV readied their equipment for the broadcast. Unfortunately their transmission link was interrupted just prior to the race...
Marshals readied themselves throughout the track for the start of qualifying...

When qualifying was over several racers enjoyed their reward for having gone faster than the rest... setting up what should be a fantastic race...
Immediately after qualifying each entry began routine tech inspection... starting with the pole sitter... ...Stewart watches on...
... 2nd fastest... Clark enjoying a refreshing bottle of fizzy water...
...third fastest... looks like Hill forgot something...

...everything appeared to be in order after all...

And it was finally time to line up the first three cars and start the race! An aerial view from the mighty airship above!
