Fast, wheel-to-wheel racing action at an affordable cost – that’s what makes 2 Litre hot Rod racing so popular on the ovals of England and Northern Ireland. These space-framed cars run on control Hoosier tyres, and are confined to the Ford 2L Pinto engine, making them a cost effective way of getting the thrills that hot rod racing brings. Around £15,000 can put one of these machines on track, with close racing guaranteed at every meeting. The “2 Litres” have been around Spedeworth Raceways for some time, racing across the southern English raceways and in East Anglia, whilst 2009 has also seen the formula spread its’ wings to the Incarace promotion in the Midlands. The formula has also had a strong base in Northern Ireland for many years, with the best each country has to offer battling it out in the major championships each season.

Wimbledon 18/01/15 Meeting Cancelled

Due to the low number of drivers booked in to race, Spedeworth have cancelled the meeting at Wimbledon 18/01/2015 which included 2 litre hot Rods. There were just 13 Hot Rods booked in to race.
I have made the decision not to race at Wimbledon due to drivers not giving each other room and not wanting to risk an expensive trip into the fence.

Murray rounds out 2014 in style

The final Irish meeting for 2014 at Tullyroan, lower numbers but still great racing

Jack Boal took first blood in the first 2.0 Hot Rods race, as the powerful hatchbacks struggled to adapt to the tricky underfoot conditions. Behind Jack in that first heat came World Champion Shane Murray and Stuart Cochrane, before Gareth Thompson took the second heat in some style and by some distance too. Boal and Cochrane filled the places in this one.

Veteran Davy Potter led the opening laps of the final, and fought off advances from Thompson and Boal early on. Murray soon worked his way through to second, and showed just why he wears the gold roof of World Champion by sweeping right around the outside and into the lead. Allen Cherry also impressed on his run to second, with debutant Derek McMillan a fine third in his immaculate Tigra.

Report with thanks to Darren Black

Results

Heat One: 993 Jack Boal, 70, 979, 984, 914, 975, 929, 927, 999.
Heat Two: 929 Gareth Thompson, 993, 979, 70, 944, 914, 984, 975, 927.
Final: 70 Shane Murray, 914 Allen Cherry, 944 Derek McMillan, 993, 975, 927.
