A Year in Review - Season 2007

As a result of losing over half our team from last year, it was always going to be a struggle to replace those numbers this year. Although much effort was put into recruiting, we have only been able to build a team of 24 riders this year.

Training
As usual, we were only able to fit in two Sunday training sessions before the first 6 hour event at Victoria Park Racecourse in May. Attendance was good and the students were enthusiastic.Following the May race, another four Sunday sessions saw the students gain some valuable experience in the cars to prepare them for the next race in July. A few minor rollovers sent chills up the spines of parents but the students were unscathed and battled on.

Vehicles
Once again, our three vehicles from last year are being used again. They have held up very well with only minor problems that the mechaincs seem to have been able to resolve with not too many dramas. Fuming Fusion had a hangover from last year's 24 hour race where an unknown problem caused it to perform poorly, with apparent drag that made it hard to pedal. No cause could be found last year and early this year. However, thanks to some keen eyes from our mechanic team, a couple of problems were found and fixed and we are now coinfident that the vehicle will be much faster at the 24 hour race.
