Side Notes:

The Annual NHRCCC Club Classic is run tomorrow at the permanent on-road track. A few of us went up to the track today to put down some laps (long time no see NHRCCC outdoor track!!). Incredibly sunny today, so all signs point to racing tomorrow.

Me (Matt), Mike and John will be racing stock Touring as well as Mini, should be great fun with some close racing.

See you there tomorrow!!

Personal Experiences:
The CMR track always tends to have some incredibly close racing due to its tight and technical track layout, always entertaining to go and race there, especially pro12, but I may be a bit biased :) ...

Last time I raced at the North Islands (when hosted by CMR) it started raining 2 minutes into a Pro12 race, now usually all the drivers pull over and stop racing, but for the sake of having a good laugh we all continued most of us doing 360s every corner as the little rear wheel drive cars couldn't put the power down very well in the wet. A few times people would have some incredibly close laps with eachother at about a tenth of the normal dry speed, pull the throttle a tiny bit too much and you'll be spinning out. Everyone had a blast and came off the stand with a smile regardless of the rain.

The 90 degree corner off the back straight is a make it or break it corner, you can gain that extra 10th of a second if you try and take it extremely tight and fast, but if you go too close and hit a dome, you'll go straight into the grass in which case it feels like a lifetime until the marshall gets you.

There are always good times / stories that come from events like this, I would highly recommend entering if you are able to make it!
