The HNMC Winter Series kicked off this past October, and included 12 action packed rounds of racing…well 11 to be exact as one was cancelled due to weather. The winter weather had racers running on both dirt (when it was dry) and Astro turf (when it was wet) HNMC tracks throughout the series. In the end, Simon Reeves claims the HNMC 2014-15 Nitro and E-Buggy Championships, Jamie Reeks the Clubman Championship, Jamie Clancy the Junior Buggy Championship, and Nick Theos the Truggy Championship. Racers and organizers are now preparing for the HNMC Summer Series, which will kick off on April 5, 2015.
