1.17.09 – Snowcross

 

1-17-09 marked the first round of Snowcross for 2009. Unfortunately, there was no snow on the track but that’s alright, it still made for good and affordable track time.

The event took place on the east track of Miller Motorsports Park. Cones were set up around the track as gates in which drivers needed to pass through. Hitting cones would penalize your lap time and missing the gates would disqualify your time for that run. This added some auto-x technicality to a full race track.

The practice runs took place in the morning. After the practice runs came the timed runs after lunch. There were a total of 3 timed runs. Total time were based off the sum of the two fastest lap times. There were 6 classes which were split into Super AWD (high-powered AWD vehicles), AWD, FWD, RWD (Over 3.0L), RWD (Under 3.0L), and NA AWD.

Below are the top 3 of each class.

Definitely a very fun and safe way to get some track time, since cars are let onto the track individually, leaving a lot of space between each car. For upcoming events, check www.utahscca.com or just check back on our blog and we will keep you posted.
