Saturday was a much nicer day with the sun out and some different people on point we were ready for our first day of racing. And it did not disappoint with turn 4 still getting a lot of action and 2 didn't miss out either with some awesome smashes with the Aussie Cars providing the best one of the event with a big pile up into the wall opposite turn 2 and we had a great view from out point.
