Their first event of this shortened season was July 18th. HERE is a link to personal review of the evening. Whereas I refer to cars by their numbers, here are their posted results from that event with the drivers names:
The man behind Ginga Ninja is Ron MacDonell. I asked him how he felt about the first event of the year:
I received a number of positive responses from the fans regarding the show but some were not happy with the one large group not abiding by the social distance rules. I will address it with the group and hopefully they will act accordingly.
The night for the most part went well except my track prep guy went too far trying to keep the dust down at intermission, we went 3:15 our goal is three hours, so were good.
Racing was okay and all drivers were happy to get back in a race car. Cars from BC were happy and are going to come back again.
The July show sold out and I feel confident the August shows will sell out also. Keep your eye on the Ginga Ninja website and Facebook account for updates on the August 8th event and beyond. See you at race track.
