I don't know why this meeting doesn't get the same attention from the hipsters as Texel does. I went in 2016 and I think there was about 95 F1s running something like 11 heats and a Final and it cost less than a tenner to get in!

Not to mention plenty of support races and a really good atmosphere as always.

I'm only gutted they took the ditch away!

If anyone wants to attend before it closes but doesn't fancy a banger-centric meeting, there is always the Rolling Thunder Show.  They run F2s and a various mix of rods and also the Sprint cars.


Fixtures can be found by searching for Rolling Thunder Show on Google and then clicking the fixtures link (for some reason it cannot be accessed from their homepage).


Hoping to get a couple of other ex-BriSCA drivers down to have a last wobble round the place.

In Topic: How often do you go to a F1 stock car meeting?

I've seen the F1s twice this year - an early Kings Lynn (April?) and the Mildenhall meeting. 


I've been to 11 meetings all year I think, mainly due to not doing any F2 meetings other than the 2 mentioned above with F1s and the 1st shale Brafield (but I won't repeat myself and start another rant on this).  The rest are Standlake with 1 x Swaffham.


Had Coventry still been open I'd have probably done most of them (F1) and seen a few other meetings with the F2.  As it is, I haven't really felt like I've missed any of the meetings I haven't been at.  I've enjoyed the more relaxed attitude at other tracks and doing a meeting every 3 weeks has been plenty.

From watching the live video it looked like Craig Finnikin was 4th.

Standlake - you bring whatever food and bring in you want.  There is also no bar there.  They are obviously viable without the overhanded approach.  Plenty of other tracks manage just fine.


I have no problem with tracks taking a 'Don't take the mick' approach to food and drink, but forcing people to buy a grotty burger and warm bottle of Diet Coke or go without, is not the way to do it.
