Saturday’s practice runs started at 12 o’clock and went until 1.30, most of the people running took part in the non-timed practice to hone their skills for the main event. The first official run on Saturday was mostly under control with most people running staying out of trouble but a few cars had some off’s, none of the cars that had issues during the weekend were badly damaged just a few red faced drivers.
