Yep, it looks to be a pretty technical race. Did he mention there being a lot of silt between RM 400 and 500? Apparently SCORE may be providing an option to the Class 11 and 7SX vehicles to take a take a short cut to avoid that and to not go over the time limit. Going to be quite an interesting race!
