Warm weather racing at ‘Snowpocalypse’



The Western Canadian Indoor Championship Series visited the unseasonably warm city of Airdrie, Alberta, for their normally appropriately named Annual Snowpocalypse, Round 4 of the WCICS series. Airdrie hosted a great event, with the highlight of the weekend (and a particular strength of the Karz club) the kids only Mini class! 7 other WCICS classes were hotly contested, and as the midway point before the Christmas break, the season class championships are revealing some strong favorites.

Great Hobbies TC Stock: Wayne Mah took TQ and win with his new Awesomatix. AE’s Peter Tozser worked his way up from fourth on the grid to take second from Serpent’s Steve Soon who finished third.


Awesomatix TC Mod: Team Associated’s Peter Tozser came from fourth on the grid to top of the podium, Serpent’s Steve Soon cleanly drove to second, and dominant TQ and fast lap holder Wayne Mah unfortunately ended up 3rd after his Awesomatix took some contact.

Thanks to Karz club for a great race and Julie and Lauren as the best Trophy Girls ever! After the break we’re looking forward to Round 5, the biggest, most scenic race of the season, in Oceanside Victoria, British Columbia. Full results & pics can be found on www.WCICS.ca.
