Racing. This weekend also saw the first race of the Hydra Arc VW Polo at the Extreme Festival Zwartkops. It was an opportunity for the supporters to see the newly-branded Polo in action. Unfortunately engine problems caused Jacques Smith, the driver, not being able to finish one race, he persevered though and ended up in 4th place during the last race. Despite the engine problems hopes and spirits remained high throughout the sunny day.

We thank all the Hydra Arc supporters who came out with unyielding support and enthusiasm next to the field / race course and braving the scorching sun; helping make the events fun and memorable.
