Members from the Skip Barber Racing School crew brought a Formula Dodge race car to the annual Pittsfield Winter Carnival in Pittsfield, Ma., to participate in the season opening rallycross event on the SCCA Northeast calendar.

Fitted with studded tires to race on the frozen course, instructor Bob Green along with Alex Kramer and Francis Blake-Dillon from the Skip Barber Racing School shop set the top three times for the weekend. Kramer took to the course twice en route to setting the fastest time of the weekend over Green who took one run with Blake-Dillon third quickest.

The Skip Barber Racing School has been competing in the event for many years as a way to get mechanics into the cars that they care for over the course of the year. Over 75 entrants competed on a wide-open rallycross circuit where ruts in the ice present the only significant obstacle. Part of the proceeds from the event are donated to charitable organizations.
