Moultonboro, NH – The Lakes Region Ice Racing Club sponsored its 4th weekend of automobile, oval track ice racing last Sunday on Lee Pond in Moultonboro, NH. The Jaffery and Milton ice racing clubs did not have enough ice to race and many of their members journeyed to the Lakes Region to race. Lots of cars and lots of fans made for a great show even as the track suffered from spring weather.
A new ¼ mile track was laid out on the north end of Lee Pond and racing started on a mild, winter afternoon with the hot laps and qualifying heats for the 5 divisions of cars: Juniors, 4Cyl Front Wheel Drive, 4Cyl Rear Wheel Drive, V8 Stock, and the mighty Modifieds.

Moultonboro, NH – German Motorsports of Gilford and the Lakes Region Ice Racing Club teamed up to present the first automobile ice racing event of the 2012 season last Sunday. With 13 inches of ice, Lee Pond in Moultonboro came alive in late morning with plow trucks preparing the track and parking areas, club volunteers setting up registration and race control, and race fans taking their favorite vantage points around the track. The pit meeting was held at noon, followed by hot laps that gave the drivers their first chance on the ice at speed. The Club brings 5 classes of cars to either Berry or Lee pond each week: Juniors (13-15), 4 cylinder rear-wheel drive, 4 cylinder front-wheel drive, V8 stock, and modified. From the fearless juniors to the wicked fast modifieds, there is lots of close competition and action on the slick 1/4 mile oval tracks.
