Sixty 1/10th off road 2WD and 4WD buggies and trucks lined up on the fast flowing track the Dumfries Model Car Club had presented for the first round of this one-off racing series.

The format is three rounds of qualifying then two finals for all. The second leg of the final is a reversed grid.The shortened qualifying was an added challenge on the day, with one less round than normal to set two competitive times, but the double legged finals led to more excitement, giving racers more wheel to wheel action on the day.

With the restricted rostrum numbers and a high level of competition, regular regional A finalists were spread across the A, B and C finals, mixed in with several young up and coming racers and seasoned returnees.
