What a great weekend of racing at Bathurst with NSCC well represented in the Junior ranks. All the Junior competitors gave all they had in their races. It was great watching them on the day ... they all put in 110% effort. Most importantly they all had fun.

They all enjoyed themselves on the day and were pleased with their results.

After racing and the next day a few of the juniors and parents road laps of the actual Bathurst 1000 circuit. They absolutely loved climbing up the mountain especially the parents. LOL !!!!!!!!!! I loved the smile of the kids when that happen.
