My other half thought it was dragged out a bit, with several delays waiting for a single driver to come out on track, & said he rated it as an 8. However, I had been in the Pits, & given the lousy weather all day, which undoubtedly made repairing damage between races extremely hard on every team (even those with huge gazebos), & maybe having to wait for a push or drag to get off the back pits to even get to the track, I think that alone deserves a vote of full marks!

Part of me says that every driver deserves the DoD accolade, but eventually I narrowed it down to 55 & 166, with Bobby G getting it for his consistent performances through out the whole weekend.

Back to the laundry!!!!!

What a night!!! Nothing but action & hard hits all the way, from every formula out on track, right from the get go. Even the weather behaved itself!!

 

Russell Cooper drove well in his heat, & thoroughly deserved that 1st ever Tarmac victory in the Consolation. He deserves more wins on both surfaces, but after 21 years, this one was very special. Well earned my friend.

Sorry Mr World Champion, but watching you at this meeting, with nobody to really challenge you, was boring beyond belief. That`s why I`ve opted for Simon Binder, in a Daz Kitson car, out there having a bit of that "Living the dream" thing & scoring a couple of points in the process.

Had a certain other World Champion not been present, this meeting, which was somewhat dragged out, (NOT talking about track clearances, more about having the Pit Gate closed & everyone sitting waiting for the Green flag for unnecessarily long periods) would have been a bit of a disaster, since the F2s were the only formula really making a go of Stock Car Racing.

Much as we like the track, our next visit will be for another major F1 Championship.

415, 55, 515 .... all on it all afternoon, BUT 212 had a cracker of a meeting to take the Masters title

 

Deane, now you`ve got the track sorted out, please do something about the spectating areas. The days of grass banking went out with The Ark & are frankly unsafe.

How on earth can anyone find a stand out driver from this meeting? Every one of them, male & female, Dutch, New Zealander, whatever, gave us an absolutely amazing night of proper Stock car Racing. Thank you all, for reminding us what the sport is really all about.
