Well, it was a long day, a little
foggy to start early on but it cleared and the weather
looked promising but then, rain! which never really went
away for the rest of the afternoon.
Lots of racing which was great throughout, a few
championships and the first was the Junior Micra Rods
Peaks, this was won by a swift 19 Ben Germany from
Chesterfield, Ben was also practicing in a BriSCA F2
Stockcar, so it might not be long until he leaves
Juniors, we wish him all the best when the time comes.
Hot Fords were racing the Northern & Midland, the victor
in this was 121 Nigel Boothroyd from Huddersfueld, Nigel
has won this many times before but for for a while, in
fact he won the other two races as well.

taken by the rapid 111 Dave Billing, in his Sierra
Sapphire special, Dave comes from Leek.

Final with number 1 Dave Carter runner up on both

okay the car was not.

performances from 888 Billy Butler and 690 Mia Hill who
has never gone as quick, well done to all.
The Super Bangers saw the wins go to 420 Ryan Shaw and
111 Dave Billing who won a Heat and the Final.
The Open Rods had the largest turnout of racers and did
not fail to entertain. Young 125 Billy Kidd racing
from white grade (one of our juniors from last year)
cleaned up taking all 3 races comfortably, he will soon
move up the grades on this form. Other top performers
were 85 Ben White, 99 Danny Davies and 44 Hayley Harvey.
The Street Bangers saw Ford Focus racer 117 Jake Crowley
who won the lot. 09 Gareth Clowes and 821 Ryan Shuff
