    With apologies for the late update thank you to the 27 racers who took to DHORC's 77 10-Lane Daytona Oval on a night run to Crash and Burn rules on Tuesday 22Mar16 . All cars were BSRT/VSR Lexan bodied

    Congratulations to all of our winners, with Jamie Lymer (Adults) and Fergus Holmes (Juniors) both taking their first wins of the year, with Geoff Peach (Masters) and Jay Perry (Cadets) taking wins in the other two categories.

    Congratulations also to Laura Turnbull for taking he first ever Pole Position in the Juniors and to Josh Elmore for taking a Personal Best second overall in the Juniors. Cliff Roythorne pushed Jamie hard in the Adults in the last of the 10 races but had to settle for second

    Simon Goodlip became the first Member in the Daytona 500s 16 year history to lap the circuit in under 3 second, leaving the record at 2.70 second (19.44 mph). Lee Pateman became the second with a 2.99 second Lap.

    Simon and Lee also broke the nine year old Qualifying record (fastest Lap on Lanes 3,4,5 & 6 added together) with Simon taking it down from 12.72 to 11.16 seconds.

    Three racers also broke the 3-Minute Race Laps record of 52.7 Laps set last year with Simon taking the overall record again with 55.1 Laps.
