BeaveRun Paddock Fills as the Sunshine Finally Returns

Wampum PA (5.1.07) - After countless wet and soggy days this spring the sun finally made an appearance at BeaveRun Motorsports Complex and the racers came out in droves.

The schedule for Sunday April 29th included motorcycles on the North Track, autocross on the Vehicle Dynamics Area and karting on the Wilson Circuit.

The action on the VDA was nonstop as more than 120 autocross combatants took to the course as part of the SCCA Steel Cities Region Autocross Series Event #1. The action was part of a two day event that featured a Test & Tune day on Saturday as well.

More information on the many events the SCCA Steel Cities Region is involved with at BeaveRun can be found at the Steel Cities Region website.

Karting action was in full swing on the world renowned Wilson Circuit as the BeaveRun Championship Karting Series kicked off the season with the first race of the twelve race schedule. More than sixty karts were entered in six different classes from Kid Karts for the 5-8 year olds to the 125cc Shifters.

For Race Director Scot Silbaugh the numbers were impressive for the first race of the season, particularly considering some regular racers were not in attendance due to other commitments such as National events.

"This is a great start to our season; the racing was clean, competitive and exciting and the weather was perfect. We expect the kart counts to grow from here as well as there are several new racers showing up on practice days that are going to be racing soon and several of our regulars who were running National events this weekend will be returning."

Next on the karting schedule is the Open House & Kart Show scheduled for this coming Sunday May 6th at 10:00. People interested in the sport can learn more about karting at BeaveRun as well as talk to other racers and see karts and equipment from several local dealers.

The North Track saw the motorcycles rule the day on a sunny Sunday as European Motorcycle of Pittsburgh hosted a full day of open lapping sessions on the 1.6 mile road course.

More than eighty Novice, Intermediate and Experienced riders were in attendance filling each run group to capacity. Technical advice from the experienced staff at European Motorcycles was available for riders as well.
