In Topic: DRIVER OF THE DAY - HEDNESFORD - 22/09/19

24 September 2019 - 09:18 AM

After the success of the KL/Northampton weekend it really was down to earth with a whimper at this one. Had I known it was "Give a gold top a win day" I might not have bothered. 

 

The two saloon heats were good but with Diggy Smith on the front row of the ORCi Championship Final the result was never in doubt.

 

Heat, final and GN for Gordon Moodie  tells you all you need to know about the F2 racing. So many cars moved aside for him I thought the starter was waving the blue flag.

 

As for the F1s, 17 cars is not enough for a heat around Hednesford never mind a whole meeting. As has been noted elsewhere Tom Harris would never have caught Drew Lammas in the final had 464 not brought out a caution.

 

I know we are not supposed to be negative on here but no matter what shade of rose-tinted glasses I wear  I come to the same conclusion - this one is best forgotten.

 

DOD: Daz Kitson 532

A vlog on breeding Nige? I know this is a family sport but steady on!

Jake has got this DOTD nailed and rightly so after such a composed drive in the final.

 

My vote goes to Phoebe Wainman 211. I have never seen her drive with such determination as she did in her heat to get second place and the points needed to clinch the One Car Series since the V8 British at Skeggy a couple of years ago.

 

RR: 7

In Topic: trying out with a view to purchase

I doubt you can get 12 months warranty and servicing on a used stock car! I actually wrote apparently with a view to purchase based on information I was given in the pits. 

 

Mark and his team may have already bought the car - seems there has been a spate of UK car buying recently - Jelle Tesselaar (H410) had an ex-Colin Goodswen car in his trailer at Stoke and Bouwe Arjan Hiddinge (H17) was using the de-numbered James Neachell car at Belle Vue.

 

Anyone know of any other cars heading over the North Sea?

Linky - the meeting was very well attended (approx 300 -  local residents, drivers and speedway riders). I am putting together a report for the f1stockcars.com website which will be on-line soon I hope (unless Nige gets on Stoxnet first!).
