[3-5-18] 22nd April Review

Another 7 formula meeting, 24 races on the Buxton oval which started out wet then dried and then wet again and as we finished the sun was out again!

The racing was brilliant all day, the junior Stoxkarts started the afternoon and 355 Aiden Grindey in only his second meeting took the first heat. 59 gold top Connor Benstead won the other heat and the final.

In the senior Stoxkarts 58, 471 and 229 took the wins with Joe Higgins 229 being successful in the final.

The Open Rods with around 24 racers present saw 125 Billy Kidd take the first heat making 4 wins on the trot. In Heat 2 114 Danny Mather headed the pack home and in the final 89 Dave Swingewood pipped early leader 85 Ben White and 14 Ian Whittaker at the flag to win the Northern & Midland Championship.

The National Ministox appeared again a big field of racers, 1 Jack Witts was unbeatable, the Evans boys made him work for the wins. 77 Tom Earl and 277 Thomas Rogers had their moments, young Earl clipping the tyres and almost rolling over then in the last race The Rogers youngster with a nudge on to the tyres did flip over with minimal damage whereas the 77 suffered extensive damage, both drivers were none the worse for the incidents.

The Brisca F2s had Buxton points champ 154 Michael Green at the head of the field in both the heats and final, the Grand National winner was 324 Jordan Thackra, it was only his second win in the F2's.

The 1300 Stock Cars saw Skegness driver 196 Craig Mitchell on top form taking 2 wins and a third place. 414 Mark Veall won the other race and a runner up spot.

The Street Bangers were racing for the Northern and Midland championship. Heat one had 117 Jake Crowley ahead of the pack when the chequered flag was waved. In Heat 2 and also the championship race it was 181 Paul Beale from Eccles who clinched the wins.



[3-5-18] 15th April Review

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.
Super Bangers also had the Nothern & Midland, this was taken by the rapid 111 Dave Billing, in his Sierra Sapphire special, Dave comes from Leek.
The Micro F2 Stockcars were out in a good numbers, with 51 Jeolan Maynard taking the wins.
The Grand Prix Midgets always turn out some nice machines, and today was no exception, they were racing in the Final for the Simon Pashely Memorial, which was won by 32 Dan Pooley.
Modstox were another great class racing, with some good action at times, the final was taken by 667 Liam Sankey.
Mascars also featured, always top racing from these scaled down Nascars, and the Final went to another 32 - Nick Spicer.


[26-3-18] 25th March Review

On a sunny dry day Buxton got underway to start the 2018 season. A six formula programme began with the Hot
Fords and Buxton old boy 295 Graham Heywood pipped 76 Richard Pearce in Heat 1. Richard took Heat 2 and the
Final with number 1 Dave Carter runner up on both occasions, 926 Gary Flynn flipped over in race one he was
okay the car was not.

In the Juniors 19 Ben Germany was unstoppable, strong 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
were in the top 3 more than once. In the last race of the meeting 66 Dave Dorans carried out a spectacular
roll bringing to an abrupt end the final for the Street Bangers.

The 1300 Stock cars were down on numbers but 515 and 466 took the wins.

And so ended a exciting race day roll on Easter Monday.


[12-3-18] Fords Care Ladies Race


As you know Buxton Raceway has always tried its hardest to raise funds for the FORDS-Care Charity which supports the drivers, officials and photographers from all ORCi Tracks.

We are looking to stage another Ladies Race in aid of the fund and would like your support. We are looking for wives, girlfriends who are sick of you spending all the time behind the wheel and would like to have a go themselves.

This will be a one off race at the end of the meeting on Sunday 12th August at Buxton Raceway and cars eligible will be Open Rods and Hot Fords from Buxton.

However what we do ask is if you are interested we need to get sponsors forms sent out to you as soon as possible so we can complete it correctly and raise as much money as possible.

Please get in touch with Dave Pierce either by private message or email to dp@buxtonraceway.com
