A top night. From the very start there was an air of eager anticipation of what was in store. Big queues to get in showed the effect of King John's return. A big crowd around the 53 pit all evening, and everyone welcoming him back with a handshake and a few words. John was in Ht.1 and as he entered the track to do a couple of pre race laps the place erupted as we knew it would. Brilliant!
Heat 1 saw a great fightback from 515 after spinning out and Phoebe unavoidably running into him. He caught 16 up and disposed of him with a good hit and then put a last bender on 244 to claim the victory.
Heat 2 had a super battle between 137, 268 and 345 all swapping places numerous times. 390 got the better of 84 in this one. 152 carried on his shale form to win.
The Consi victory looked as though it would come down to a fight between 197 & 326. On a restart with a couple of laps to go Sarge was lined up behind Ryan. Was payback imminent from Northampton? Not this time as 326 pulled off as the green waved with a dead motor.
The Final saw battle continue between 84 and 390. Both traded blows and Stuart ended up with a damaged right rear corner but still managed to use 21 as a snooker ball to take 84 to the fence. A few laps later 21 put a hit in again on 84 to finish the Final one place ahead.
The GN had a continuation of the 84/390 fight which saw them locked together and 84 being introduced to a big old marker tyre. 268 rounded off a great night with the victory.
With a 40 car GN in the F.2's it was more like a Saloon race with cars scattered all over and one with his back wheels hooked over the top of the plating. Tremendous!
