    The morning’s sunny disposition wasn’t any indication of the day ahead. The weather had rain and shine come on and off, but it could not have been more apt.

    That's just one weekend of testing. We have eight testing schedules, some with five or six cars, some with eight or more.

    Awards are given for over-all winner and winners for each vehicle category.
