The Field was limited to 20 entrants but as there was rain predicted through out the week
There were only 10 registered, with one pulling out on the day due to the wet track.
At 3pm on the day club members worked frantically to blow the track dry and by 4pm
The rain had stopped and the track was slippery but dry enough for qualifying.

The race was allowed to proceed as the track was dry at the beginning of the race .

9 7 GIZZMO RACING GT2 - DUNN/AVRAM/BURROWS / 19 21.091
After about 20 minutes into the race the heavens opened up and it rained all night.
Boy did it rain!!
Most racers would have given up but not the Penrith crowed. Even spectator didn’t give

It was a matter of who could keep the electronics of their cars waterproof. A task that proved impossible for many.
It was quiet remarkable that the JPM electric Laser was able to finish at all when you consider that the car is all electric and water with electrics don’t mix
All the top runners were failing and at the end it was the Red Bull team driven by Knight, Rossiter and Isaacs that won the race.Well done , that was a great effort in such bad conditions.

JPM Racing team finished a credible 5th even though there were car that finished with more laps, but under the Le Mans rules you have to cross the finish line within 90 seconds of the finish to be given a position otherwise you are deemed as DNF.
It will be great to see this car in dry conditions .Keep an eye at http://www.edamhobby.com and at
http://www.jpmracing.com.au for the launch of this car .
JPM racing would like to thank Michael Turner , for preparing the body and driving the first session and David and Stephen Patane for pitting and marshaling
