Race report by Ari Bakla
The second attempt of the Proline Challenge due to bad weather was held over the weekend 6-7 November at LRRCC. Rain again had threatened to stop procedings, it actually rained all week including Friday night and Saturday Morning... Starting procedings a little late due to a wet track we were underway before lunch. Overall number were low due to the bad weather but the competition was still HOT!!! Proline Calibers in M3 Compound were the Controled tyres for the whole event, maximum of 2 sets.

Most drivers only used one set, due to the great wear rate of the Caliber and the track started to groove up by the end of Saturday, the more the track grooved, the more the tyres wore the faster the lap times were. Race format was 6 qualifiers with the quickest counted. 3x 6 Minute A-Main finals were run with the two highest placings counting.

EP Buggy was a 3 way battle with Ari Bakla XRAY, Carl Dawson XRAY and Dallas Gardiner Ari taking the overall win even after a dead heat in the 2nd Main with Dallas. Carl Dawson XRAY was a strong 3rd overall.

GP Buggy was the largest field of the day. Ari Bakla XRAY again took TQ and the win after taking the first two finals. Jarred Kind XRAY decided to make the trip up on Sunday 2 with only qualifiers still managed to finish a solid 2nd. 3rd overall was the ever consistent Justin Snape XRAY was HOT all weekend following very closely but managed to finish an all XRAY Podium.
