In case you missed out on the first round of Super One at Rowrah 2017, have no time for race reports and can’t wait to see the Motors TV programme or the videos on You Tube, here’s what you need to know from the season opener in just five images!

Due to the weather conditions on Sunday morning, the decision was made by Tdi Media to only film final 1 incase final 2 didn't go ahead because of a lack of time caused by the late start
After all the waiting Super One was underway for 2017, but the weather was far from glamourous. On Sunday morning the track was unsuitable for racing which left drivers standing around whilst the conditions eased up. By lunch time racing eventually kicked off and TDi Media made the decision to film Final 1 races with Final 2 still an uncertainty.

Many people would say that the fastest way around Rowrah, especially in the wet would be use of the kurbs. Downside to this is you run the risk of receiving a bumper penalty, as several people found out..
Great work from all parties meant Final 2 racing did go ahead and in the challenging conditions and as we all know the fastest way around Rowrah is by using the kerbs. The downside to this was the risk of a front fairing penalty as many found out over the weekend. Especially Bradley Barrett who seemingly won the Junior Max Final 1 race from lights to flag before a front fairing penalty from hitting a kerb made otherwise.

After a lot of hard work by the CKRC team the racing got underway at lunch time. By the last race of the day – Senior X30 final, the track was starting to dry nicely. This race was an interesting one with 5 DNFS, 10 penalties including big names such as Eliot Harvey and also 1 exclusion. Staying out of trouble was Danny Keirle who took victory
