The season opener for Island Offroad Racing was a hit last month.

The first races of the 2024 season took place on May 25 and 26 at Alberni Motorsports Park on Trill Pit Road.

Saturday started with obstacle races, which were not so lucky for some. Kyle Sanders had his front axle break, but like the true spirit of a racer had it fixed and was participating on Sunday.

But Saturday was tame compared to Sunday, when cars were tumbling and even catching fire during wheel to wheel action.

The next races will take place June 22 and 23.
