The 1st race of the Spring Super Cup Series kicked off the year with nearly 220 entries from all over Florida and the east coast in attendance for Florida’s first major race on astroturf! The weekend started off with some unscheduled rain on Friday, but luckily for the racers, round 1 was held at the massively covered Beachline Raceway in Cocoa Beach, Florida on January 14th – 15th.
After Saturday morning practice, racers had 1 qualifying round that started at 12:30pm and another round on Sunday morning. Typically, the Super Cup is a one-day affair, but shortly after the round was over, the JConcepts awards banquet was held for 2016 Fall Super Cup and racers were treated to prizes, drinks, and good laughs.
With only 2 qualifiers using both rounds to determine your overall starting position, every round of qualifying is important to make it into the A-mains. The racing was exciting and everyone got to experience a new type of racing on the astroturf. There is definitely a learning curve to running on the high grip astro, but most took it in strides and had a great time.
Here are the videos and podium pictures. Thanks to everyone for coming out and being a part of the JConcepts Super Cup! Also thanks to Robbie from Beachline for their work and efforts in getting the track ready and the facility looking awesome.
