Season 2021/2022 – Electric Race Class & Specs update

Looking forward 

The 2020/21 Season was full of great racing and excitement. We made some great progress in establishing a racing scent and look forward to doing more. Most important is we had fun and in the process established some great friendships.  

This year we are making the following key changes to classes and specifications to further mature our racing by keeping the playing field as even as possible for competition level racing. 

The majority of specifications remain the same to last year, with the key changes summarized here and followed by class by class specifications below.
