Maybe another way to say that would be to say that there were a whole ton of Specs and 10's that fell back into the UTV's also ?I saw a ton of UTVs mixed with Specs and 10s around rm32 this year.
Because there were also quite a few Specs and 10's that were able to check out.
Whenever there's a major obstacle like this, the more experienced (...and the lucky ones) get through and the others fall back into the pack. I'm going to say it, so flame away, but Spec has the lowest ratio of quality, experienced drivers vs. inexperienced Donkeys with large wallets.
Once the Donkeys start clogging up the course, the 10 guys get hosed. By the time things get sorted, the UTV's are on them in full attack mode. There's a TON of talent and experience in the UTV classes too.
