On the 3rd November there is a
drifting event and it will be the first chance for
the public to see Buxton Raceway under lights, its is
expected that the lighting system will be use at the 4th
November meeting as well as the racing draws to a close
for the final time this season.
The track has invested in a quantity of brand new LED
light units, as you can see in the pic things are
looking very impressive already with still quite a few
left to fit.
The lights will be added to in number and in 2019, it is
hoped to run the occasional evening meeting and of
course the BriSCA F2 World Final will be an evening
meeting on 7th September.
Many thanks to Brian Smith Electricals for providing
assistance in the planning and installation.
[2-11-18] 21st October Review
With 24 races planned it was
going to be one of the busiest days of the season. We
had "new race winners" in most formulas always great to
The Junior stoxkarts were on track first and 257 Ben
Limb won from superstars 59 Connor Benstead and 468
Bradley Cooper. In race 2 it was Ben Again in top spot,
this time Bradley and Connor swopped finishing
positions. In this race 260 Chester Love rolled over
bringing a race suspension, on the restart all went well
until gold top racer 355 Aiden Grindey also rolled. In
the third race and Aiden kept it on four wheels to take
the win from 345 Tom Andrew and Bradley.
The Youngsters in the Micro F2s next and 51 Joelyn
Maynard won 2 of the races, 607 Christina Sillifant won
the other race, 317, 496 and 306 all deserve a mention
as they were there or thereabouts in each race, well
Junior Micra rods firstly battled for the" gold roof "
and it was 888 Billy Butler who has the honour for 2019,
runner up was 181 Matt Arrowsmith. 113 Sidnie Mercer won
heat 2, the only her second win, with Matt in second
place. Matt won the last 2 races [Heat and Final].
The superbangers had a good field of racers to race for
the "Nationals" which was won by 276 Tyler Billing with
dad Dave in second place. To prove it was no fluke Tyler
took race 2 as well, and was second in the George Mycock
memorial trophy race, which Dave won, just keeping the
wins in the family.
On to the Senior stoxkarts and 111 Russ Sumner won heat
one with 257 Kelvin Limb in runner up spot. In heat 2
the Nunns finished first and second, with 229 Joe
Higgins in third. In the final it was Carl Nunn leading
the pack home with Joe and Kelvin in second and third
Brisca F2s hit the track firstly to compete for the
White and Yellow grade championship, which after a great
battle was won by 787 Olly Hertzog from defending champ
299 Steve Smith. Heat one and again Olly won again from
325 Ryan Sheehan and 960 Adrian Whitehead. In heat 2 and
the grand National 876 Stuart Moss was winner with a
proper stock car nudge on the lead car on the final
turn, a very determined effort. 817 Tim Bailey grabbed
the 20 lap grand final with scottish driver no16 Craig
Wallace in the runner up slot.
Street bangers next and the more they raced the more
action increased.No18 Callum Corbett was un defeated,
including winning the gold roof race, Andy Walsh and
Paul Beale and Emily Bailey were great entertainers. in
the last race a race the wrong way round race had plenty
of contact with the most determined nudge on the last
bend as 199 Jon Leach probably thought he had it won but
Callum had other ideas "that nudge" , and blasting on to
victory. It was another value for money action packed
afternoon here at Buxton.
[14-10-18] 30th September
What a meeting here at Buxtons
BriSCA F1 shoot out round, supported by the V8 Hotstox,
National Ministox and the Golden years cars from the
Heritage F1. It was ACTION from the first green flag to
the last chequered.
The Golden years were on track first and it was great
to see racers from the 60s through to the early 80s
demonstrating the old days of stox. 375, 212/190 and 304
were the top 3 in race one. In race two no1 won with
the same cars in the 2nd and 3rd slots . In their last
race 304 won from 212/190 with no1 in third. Pontiac
,Oldsmobile, Ford and chevy v8s without silencers, no
power steering, skinny tyres on most cars, great times
relived for all to see.
Mini stox next, a white and yellow grade race first and
277 Tom Rogers won from novice Sam Critchley. 3 wins for
Jack Witts a heat, final and allcomers, he meant
business. The other win went to 392 Lewis Evans who like
his brother raced their hearts out as usual, great
The v8 Hotstox provided loads of action, 485 Steve
Thompson won a heat and the allcomers. No1 Adam Joyce
had a DNF in race one then won race two and a runner up
spot in the final, in the allcomers he ended up on his
roof sliding along the home straight. The Spencer boys
were quick all afternoon with 298 Tom taking the grand
final, and second place finish in the last race after a
BriSCA F1 Shoot out Round 3 sponsored by Stockcar
Magazine, with some full contact, bumperwork dished on a
regular basis, resulting in lots of spin outs, fence
testing it was very entertaining.515 FWJ won heat one,
and the GN race was also third in the final. 37 Chris
Cowley grabbed a win as did 175 Karl Hawkins. 220
William Hunter led the rest over the finish line in the
Grand final. 501, 172, and 152 had some well deserved
high place finishes.
17 races on the day, excellent entertainment, a great
advert for oval racing, well done to all.
[3-10-18] 23rd September
With 23 races ahead of us here at Buxton, proceedings
got underway with the junior Stox karts and it kicked
off with a spectacular ROLLOVER, 750 Hannah Andrew was
the unlucky youngster, she flipped over about 6 yes 6
times. Hannah climbed out with assistance and the 750
team repaired the racer and Hannah was back out to do
battle later in the meeting, an amazing effort by all
59 Connor Benstead won heat one, 468 Bradley Cooper took
heat two and repeated it in the final. with Connor in
second. 44,52 and 260 all ran well.
Stoxkarts seniors had 471 Alaister Houghton win the
heats, 295 Danny Nunn, pipped 229 Joe Higgins after a
great scrap in the final. Plenty of action packed racing
from all the karts.
Micro F2s saw 51 Joelyn Maynard clinch heat one, then he
was runner up in heat 2 .425 Boden Murfin was second in
the first race and won the second.In race 3 no8 James
Owen took his turn with the chequered flag ahead of 355
Archie Grindey, in this race Joelyn was docked 2 places
for avoidable contact.
BRISCA F2s next and it was good to see some new racers
to Buxton that is on track . However 618 Ben Lockwood as
he has done quite a few times this season won both heats
and the final, leaving 318 Leyton O Reilly to win the
last race. 982 Martin Bentley recorded some podium
finishes for his efforts.
The Rebels and 31 Karl Emmett won the first race and was
runner up in race 2 then he followed that with 4th in
the final, No77 Josh Spiers was second in a heat and won
another.202 Tom Dayman won the last race on a damp track
which caused a few to spin a lot!!! The Final was won by
80 Keith Murphy with 469 Ian Chalkey in second, which he
repeated in the last event. 265 managed a fast rollover
but managed to re join.
The UK Modifieds had 85 Buxton regular Ben White win the
first race,70 Brent Russell took both the other races.43
Ken Edwards raced in each race with the inside front
wheel in the air each time he entered the straights it
didn't slow him at all.
The street bangers raced first for the Peggy Marson
memorial trophy and young 125 Billy Kidd took top spot
from 199 Jonathan Leach and 18 Callum Corbett. In race
two and the final 551 Leyland Marson cleaned up, his
first time on track at Buxton this season, he made one
young fans day by giving him one of his trophies. 83
Scott Mclay had a couple of second place finishes. In
the final, a wrong way round race had 278 rolling over
causing a race suspension, on the re start 143 also
rolled causing another suspension , maybe the damp
surface and going in the opposite direction bamboozled
the racers, anyway it made great entertainment. to some
up lots of rollovers ,bumper ,work and fast racing just
what the race fans wanted.

The Open Rods Gold roof race
started proceedings and after a great race 272 Richard
Ringrose needs to paint gold on his before their next
race day. Runner up was 43 Stuart Bromley. 180 Paul
Lockett won Heat one with 44 Hayley Harvey next over the
line. Yellow grade racer 18 Aaron Webber took heat two
with Hayley second again. 16 Callum Hazlehurst won the
The Superbangers firstly battled for the British
championship and lined up in order of the points table,
putting 111 Dave Billing and 110 Grant Heath on the
front row and that's how they finished with young 276
Tyler Billing in third place. In race two it was young
Mr Billing first over the finish line from Billing
senior and Grant in third. Grant won the third race from
Dave 111 and no21 Nigel Heath.
The Junior Micra Rods had the wins going to 888 Billy
Butler with a heat and final, 113 Sidnie Mercer won her
first ever race, well done.
The Hot Fords had 1 Dave Carter had his best results for
a long while with two wins and a second place. 483
Richard Handy grabbed a win and had runner up spots in
the final. and a heat, A quick mention for 106 Gerald
Pickford had a second place in a heat and was enjoying
The Vauxhall 1300 stock cars was dominated by 374 Darren
Mumford who won all races!. Nice to have 288 Gavin
Charlesworth back on track after a long layoff.
The Modstox saw 1 Liam Sankey take a heat and final. 63
Chris Pink held every racer off to take heat two. The
Flynns 70 and 707 were on form finishing in the points
in each race. 940 Dave Noakes was the one to beat in the
Helter Skelter race.
The Street Banger rods "raced" and 181 Paul Beale won
race one with 18 Callum Corbett in second. In heat two
178 Andy Walsh was home first with Paul second, Callum
in this rolled over on the back straight on lap one
resulting in a race stoppage, with the car pushed back
onto its wheels a quick check over for safety and he
rejoined the race as a complete restart was declared by
the race steward. Onto the final and leader 181 Paul was
way ahead meanwhile 31 and 821 were having fun banging
into each at every opportunity, and as Paul caught to
them it was decision time, to pass them or not, Paul saw
a gap and went for it, unfortunately the gap closed
squashing the 181 racer leaving Andy Walsh with an easy
victory with Callum in second place.

[31-7-18] 22nd July Review
from Micro f2s to Heritage f2s,
the newest to the oldest racer, cars that is. Micra rod
juniors, Super bangers, Open rods and Unlimited street
bangers were also on the bill.
The 7 to 11 year olds in the Micro F2s were first on
track and that win went to 425 Boden Murfin with 375
Harley Spencer second. Harley went on to win race 2,
race 3 and young lady racer Freya Lovett led the pack
home to a well deserved win.No8 James Owen finished
second in Heat 2 and had a win in race 4. Debutant 88
Kyle Rogerson performed a roll over on the pit bend but
was out later to do battle, no fear these youngsters.
In the Heritage F2s 762 Phil Smith was the winner in
race 1, 475 Ian Bell took the second race and 2 third
place finishes in the other races, Giles Carter no 47
grabbed a win. no 64 Paul Sykes, new driver to the
formula marked his debut with a roll over, again it
happened on the pit bend, must be something at that end!
The Junior Micra rods were next, they firstly raced for
The Stars Of The Future award and 17 Will Cooley raced
away to victory, a feat he repeated in race 2. 209 Zac
Pears is relatively new but is showing he is one to
watch, today he won a heat and the final.
Onto the Super bangers and some new or returning drivers
were out on track to entertain us . Two wins for
debutant 276 Tyler Billing in a beautifully prepared
racer, 111 Dave Billing was there or thereabouts when it
mattered. 21 Nigel Heath was back on track in a Capri
that he will probably have built a few years ago, and
now back home in his workshop once again.
The open rods had the Hughes boys on top form winning
the lot including the Peaks championship, after it had
to be restarted 3 yes 3 times lots of damage, the first
suspension was for a multi pile up on the speedway bend,
the second attempt was halted when no9 Chris Cooley
flipped over onto his roof after clipping the tyres
again on the speedway bend, next 89 Dave Swingewood was
on the infield as there was no tarmac where he wanted to
be, just one of the HUGE tyres which stopped him to say
the least, luckily all the drivers were all okay
although I can not say the same for the cars.
Lastly onto the Unlimited street bangers and 55 Graham
Smith in a Volvo took the first race and the third in
between 821 Ryan Shuff took another win in his Mercedes
to round off another excellent day of top quality racing
action here at Buxton Raceway.
[10-7-18] 7th & 8th July
What a weekend here at Buxton, a
Saturday night, with 20 races. The Hot Fords raced
firstly for the Gold roof championship
and a great race it was too, 76 Richard Pearce held off
1 Dave Carter and 14 Luke Pepper. In the heats Luke and
Maguire won and in the final 483 Richard Handy beat 295
Graham Heywood to the chequered flag.
The UK Modifieds were very very quick around the Buxton
oval 53 Dan Bunyard was gifted the first race after
leaders 43 Ken
Edwards and 65 Mark Carnwell had a coming together in
the closing laps. In heat 2 Mark took top spot from Dan
and in the
final Dan beat Mark with Ken in third. they race in
tight packs, one slip and it would be very messy.
The Brisca F2s were racing for world championship points
and 33 cars were here to do battle including visitors
Scotland and Devon and Cornwall. Local driver ex world
champ 101 Kelvyn Marshall took heat one from Scotlands
Wallace. Heat 2 had 700 Adam Rubury home first from 618

In view of the current moorland fires in Derbyshire,
Lancashire and Staffordshire I thought it highly
appropriate to seek advice regarding the staging of the
lantern festival scheduled for 28th July.
Taking the advice from the local fire/ police department
alongside our own concerns I have taken the stance to
cancel the event.
[19-6-18] 10th June Review
On the 10th June here at Buxton 20
races were programmed including Micro F2s and they never
fail to entertain us now that they have a few meetings
done and dusted around the country. Firstly 51 Joelan
Maynard continued his good form winning the first race
from 95 Tom Lewney and 38 Freddie Holden. In race two
and 533 Alfie Joynson performed a spectacular roll over,
the winner was 306 Oliver Heron from Freddie and Joelan.
Race3 winner was 271 Jack Helliwell followed home by 306
and 95. In the last race for the Micros 306 Oliver
headed home 51 and 38. The young racers had great fun
throughout the day whcih yet again was another sunny
The Modstox with 850cc Reliant engines in every racer,
had 667 taking 2 wins, 70 Adam Flynn won a heat and 178
Richard Burt and Adam were there or thereabouts in all
the races. 27 Sam Parker picked up a win in the last
race. Some drivers played their jokers (a chance to earn
The Super Bangers and 111 Dave Billing won all the races
including the Silverdale Championship. Heat 1 had six
different leaders. 12 Marshal Newsam went well in all
the races 110 Grant Heath had a bit of an off day with
his new racer.
The 1300 Stock cars raced and a fresh winner here at
Buxton namely 138 Joe Larder in the first heat, 196
Craig Mitchell claimed the second heat, 704 Matt Dawson
was runner up in both heats. The final was for the
Northern championship and 374 Darren Mumford in a new
car finally got to the front to win from Joe and Craig
138 and 196.
The Hot Fords and Spiderman 122 Martin Maguire took a
heat and final and was second in the other race. 926
Gary Flynn claimed a top spot in Heat 2 and 76 Richard
Pearce was second in the final and third in a heat.
Onto the unlimited Street Bangers a good mixture of
Audi, Jaguar, Mercedes, Vauxhall, Volvo, BMW and Ford
cars were all in contention. It was the Ford in the
hands of Aaron Maxwell who took two wins and second in
the final, which was won by 821 Ryan Shuff in his big
Merc. Some wanted to race, others wanted a lot of
contact, so lots of action whatever your preference. So
ended another very entertaining afternoons racing here
at Buxton. A special mention to Ryan who gave his trophy
to a young race fan who went away chuffed to bits. It
certainly made his day.
[4-6-18] 3rd June Review
BriSCA stock cars entertained us here at Buxton last
Sunday in another glorious day of sunshine and a very
good crowd had come to watch.
The BriSCA F1s had a turn out of close to 40 cars as it
was a WCQR and the VSCA Al Henderson memorial trophy.
Yellow grade drivers 183 Steve Whittle and 372 Colin
Goodswen respectively took the heats. 84 Tom Harris won
the consolation and kindly gave his trophy to a young
fan, which was a very kind gesture. In the final 2 Paul
Harrison led the rest home ahead of 217 Lee Fairhurst
and flying white top 219 Jacklyn Ellis. In the Grand
National it was 219 Jacklyn Ellis who lead from flag to
flag to take the win, surely her first in BriSCA F1.
The v8 Hotstox saw 1 Adam Joyce win the first heat from
160 Nick Blach. Onto Heat 2 and Nick headed the chasing
pack home for a well deserved win from 154 Sophie
Maynard. The British Championship was at stake next, a
starting line up based on points earned during the
Heats, 1 Adam Joyce from the front row was off like a
shot but chased all race long by 154 Sophie who never
gave Adam a second to ease up, in third place was 485
Steve Thompson and thats how they finished. In the
allcomers race 485 Steve was declared the winner after
Sophie was docked 2 places, after it was decided she had
jumped a restart, that's racing.
Lots of Mini stox racers were here today, lots of action
too and 1 Jack Witts took two victories 293 Elexie
Bartrum had a win in the white and yellow top race just
beating 68 Callum Thornton. Callum got his hands on the
chequered in heat 3 and the final to boot ahead of 246
Jenson Brickley and Jack.
The heritage Stockcars demo raced as the Golden oldies
and the Super cars. the wins in the oldies went to Rob
Bradsell, Richard Johnson and in the final Martin Makim.
In the supers it was Gary Tressler and Jon Barlett in
the heats and the final Ron Harney took top spot. racers
from the 60s, 70s and the 80s on display.
A couple of roll overs, a fire, some very hefty fence
testing during the course of the afternoon, to keep the
staff on their toes just the norm here at Buxton!
[4-6-18] 28th May Review
Another sunny day here at Buxton
and another bumper crowd witnessed some excellent racing
action throughout the afternoon.
The bus and coaches gave free rides around the raceway
prior to the racing, a treat that went down very well.
First on track to do battle was the Micro F2s, 7 to 11
year olds and 51 Joelan Maynard took a 2 heats with
other winners 306 Oliver Heron and 445 Lewis Taylor.
The slightly older racers in the Jascars 12 to 16 this
time in their miniature Nascars were next on track and
26 James Wallis took all 3 races. The Mascars, motor
bike engines provide the power in these American built
racers and it was 22 Steve Stanford who was quickest in
the heats. He was had to settle for second in the final
as 1 Ali Topley was in front when it mattered.
The Open Rods had a large entry of racers and it was
yellow grade driver 145 Paul Mottram who took a win, a
second and a third for his efforts. 39 Darren Bailey in
a Honda won a heat and the final, it was a superb day of
racing for the formula.
The Brisca F2s next and it good to see some fresh racers
on track, one of which being 527 James Riggall who won a
heat and the final the wins other went to 787 Ollie
Hertzog and 618 Ben Lockwood.
The Micro bangers though down on numbers were not short
on action, David and Ryan deserved the applause from the
crowd who appreciated their efforts.
Last the bash a bus, crush a coach brigade! in race one
290 Johnny Harrison pipped 555 Andy Carr. In heat two a
bit more contact and Andy won from 270 James Watson. On
to the final/ dd, the 270 coach in its past life was a
stock car transporter so a car was put in the back just
like the old days, in the DD the back fell open and out
rolled the car to be battered by all the bus/coaches on
track adding to the experience of a DD. it ended early
on health and safety grounds as fuel was pouring out of
2 of the buses, the win was awarded to 270 from 290 and
666. A great meeting with something for everyone.

On another hot sunny day here at
Buxton Raceway the Rebels were first on track to do
battle and 515 Dan Hastings took top honours in the
first heat with fellow yellow grade driver 834 Paul
Towers taking the second heat. The other 3 races had
star grade driver 469 Ian Chalkley win the lot. 134 Mark
Davies performed a hefty rollover making a real mess of
The Junior Micra rods had a good field of racers with 17
Will Cooley dominating the racing winning all 3 races
only to be docked 2 places in the first race for
excessive contact in what is a non contact formula.
Runner up each time out was 509 Leyland Allcock. 113
Sidnie Mercer flipped over in the final.
Onto the Hot Fords and 77 Lee Etches took the first heat
continuing his good form from the last meeting, 1 Dave
Carter won the other races fairly comfortably. 321 Tony
Tattersall having replaced his engine since last time
and bringing a new car ended up on his roof in the first
The Super Bangers had 420 Ryan Shaw put the bumper to
good use spinning leader 111 Dave Billing in the closing
stages of heat one going on to take the win. Mr Billing
went on to take the other wins in the formula. Good to
see 110 Grant Heath back on track with a very well
prepared motor - a Lexus IS200. He recorded a couple of
runners up spots and it clear to see that the car has
great potential, incidentally Grant was previously 200,
he is now 110 which is his Dads number [Nigel Heath].
99 James Sellors in the street bangers held off 181 Paul
Beale in the first heat, the positions were reversed in
heat 2 and then in the figure of 8 final it was Paul who
was declared the winner after an action packed race. So
ended another very entertaining afternoons racing here
[4-6-18] 7th May Review
On Bank holiday Monday at Buxton
Raceway on 7th May the sun shone all day it was HOT but
the action on track was even HOTTER.
It all began with the MONSTER TRUCKS doing parade laps,
The racing began with the 1300 Stockcars and it was good
to see a different winner it was 110 Sam Lawie, he
followed that up with 3rd and 4th places in his other
races and 278 Marcus Brookes matched Sam with the exact
same results. Young lady racer 555 Amy Carr in her first
race meeting this season notched up a 3rd place in the
PEAKS final with an amazing last lap move putting two
cars out in one shot.
On to the Modstox and 667 Superstar Liam Sankey won the
Neil Clayton Memorial trophy which was a 9 lap dash,
Neils Racing number with the Modstox number 9. Pete Wood
55 was on top form and won the other races.
The Hot Fords had an additional driver Lee Etches 77 who
took the honours in the first heat and to prove it was
no fluke the final as well. 14 Luke Pepper and 76
Richard Pearce were well placed in their races gaining
loads of points as this was a points round for their
Gold roof championship.
A rare visit to Buxton for the UK Modifieds and they are
rapid around our oval, 65 and 53 taking the wins, namely
65 Mark Carnwell and 53 Dan Bunyard. I have got to
mention 70 Brent Russell who recorded 3 top tree
Street Bangers next and 178 Andy Walsh was gifted the
first race when the leaders tangled in the closing
stages. Heat 2 and the Final had 290 Johnny Harrison up
front at the end. 181 Paul Beale had 3 runners up
finishes bagging a pile of points.
Back to the AWESOME BEASTS that are the Monster Trucks,
huge tyres, massive engines in fact everything about
them is BIG including their entertainment value. Firstly
they pulled apart a stretch limo, no problem. Later on
four little hatchbacks were reduced to almost metal
pancakes as the trucks rode over them again no problem.
The last visit to the track and it was Monster trucks
against 2 caravans a chance for all caravan haters to
see one way of getting rid of them QUICKLY and very
EFFECTIVELY, in a matter of seconds they were reduced to
flat scrap!. Each time the trucks were on track the
crowd loved them and gave them a very noisy reception.
To end the crash fest we had a caravan race which ended
with 666 TAZ aka Dan Lucas taking the prize, it was
great see to most of the spectators stay to watch to
carnage, so ended an action packed afternoons
entertainment for everyone.

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

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 -

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
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
The 1300 Stock cars were down on numbers but 515 and 466
