Results not quite final, but very unlikely will change.

The future looks electric.

Most everything around here is wet during the rainy season. And the rainy season is long.

Put the combustion engines in the 'classic' class, away from the real race cars.

Love it!

A 2018 Leaf did the bottom half (due to weather). Times weren't too bad considering.

Times do look good compared with competitors running just before and after. Hard to know the condition of the track during his run as storms and hail were moving through the area.
