This was a fun experience for all the competitors. and good no of spectators were present in NIWEC. Usually due to Industrial off (holiday) there was no outsiders other than NIWEC club members. All the competitors were just new the prologue but what it was actually, & how the penalties will be calculated was not known to drivers.
