With the completion of both the Slowpokes event and the BMW event RLR's activities at BIR are complete for June. Slowpokes provided a quiet day with no incidents to talk about. This makes it about the 3rd or 4th event for them that is incident free.

BMW was not as lucky. On Saturday we had a car get wide at 12, find it's way back to the track and at the same time traction. That combination coupled with the aim at the wall drivers left launched the car into the wall drivers left just past twelve. Other than ego and a nice 1990's BMW there were no other injuries. Sunday was no better with the day ending in a rollover at 11. A driver broke the rear end loose at 11 got sideways, corrected and the counterskid took the car off drivers right at 11 and sideways into the pea gravel. the pea gravel did what it's supposed to do and stopped the tires. unfortunately the top part of the car was still moving faster than that and the car ended up upside down. Again no injuries, and my complements to staff and RLR folk as the clear time was 10 minutes on that.

Look for July e-mails in a couple of weeks as those two events are rescue only events.
