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.

Paul Wright is 2016 English Champion

A field of 21 2 Litre Hot Rods turned up to contest the 2016 English Championship at Northampton on 14th August. The first race saw Paul Wright in car 43 starting from a very strong pole position, and he lead from the start ahead of 29 Duane Peacock with 146 Scott Morgan and 186 George Turiccki side by side for 3rd. At the start of lap 3 Turiccki took 3rd from Morgan round the outside and then almost immediately cut to the inside to past Peacock for second. Further back there was trouble on the final corner as 151 Robert Ashman was spun round taking out number 5 Marc Gould and number 2 Ryan Morgan in the process. Wright proceeded to pull out a substantial lead with Turiccki giving chase. In the battle for third place 303 Gavin Botfield was able to get past the 146 car of Scott Morgan, but no one could stop Paul Wright who came through to take the chequered flag ahead of Turiccki and Botfield.

The reverse grid for race two saw 330 Tyler Wilkin lead the pack away ahead of 310 Sean O'Leary and 280 Luke Stonehouse. At the end of lap one 35 Mitchell Souter was taken out by 75 Chris Crane, fortunately no damage was done and both were able to continue. With Wilkin pulling clear at the front, the race was really heating up for second place with O'Leary coming under intense pressure from Stonehouse, with the Crane boys and 133 Robert Gamble in hot pursuit. From towards the back Wright was making steady progress through the field. Back at the front Stonehouse found a gap on the back straight and after a lap of running door handle to door handle, he made his way past O'Leary to take second place.

For most of the second half, the Cranes had a great battle with O'Leary in the race for third. Chris eventually got through with two laps to go. O'Leary then tried to cut across the front of Alex who was already up his inside, the cars touched sending O'Leary into a 360 degree spin on the home straight! Miraculously everyone missed him, and in all the confusion Wright took advantage gaining about three places moving up to 7th! On the last lap Luke Stonehouse was right with Tyler Wilkin and challenging for the lead! Wilkin looked to have it covered but coming off the final bend Stonehouse got a great exit and they crossed the line together in what was a virtual dead heat finish, the first time I've ever witnessed a tie in my history of watching hot rod racing! If those photo finishes from the Olympics were anything to go by I'll tell you, you can't get any closer than that, and what a great race it was too!

During the English Championship nothing much happened with the exception of a clash between 35 Souter and 29 Peacock on the first corner. At the front though it was very much a straight forward race for Paul Wright in car 43 as he started from pole and lead flag to flag! A perfect way to put the disappointments of Spedeweekend behind him! The out going champion George Turiccki finished second in 186 with 280 Luke Stonehouse in third, and 75 Chris Crane in fourth.

Dan Smith is the 2016 World Champion

The World Championship took place at the Ipswich Spedeweekend on 03/07/2016. There were 2 Heats to determine the grid for the World Championship.
Heat 1 was won by Shane Murray from Paul Wright after a race long battle that ended in a big crash. As the leaders were side by side in the closing stages of the race they came up to to lap 2 back markers who were also side by side and did not let the leaders through. This resulted in one of the back markers spinning and the unfortunate Daniel Bennett hit them head on.
Result:70,43,959,914,35,330,351,30,745,979
Heat 2 was less frantic with Dan Smith taking the win from George Turiccki.
Result:565,186,71,976,950,2,146,75,280,933
The World Championship took place in the evening, Joel Richardson was on Pole with Paul Wright on the outside with Shane Murray and Wayne Woolsey on row 2. Dan Smith and George Turricki were on row 3.
After 3 restarts the race got going, Joel Richardson took the lead with a visibly quicker Paul wright trying for 30 laps to get past him. The race got more frantic in the last 5 laps, Paul eventually squeezed down the inside of Joel and pulled clear, then disaster struck, Paul's car ground to a halt on the Kent Cams bend within the last 2 laps! Dan Smith did not need a second invite and dived into the lead to take the World Championship. Wayne Woolsey had got up to second in the last few laps but was docked to 4th for contact. Joel Richardson took second after a good drive with Gordon Alexander taking third.
Result:565,976,71,950,75,745,330,928,2,8
The Joan Purdie Memorial Race took place on the Sunday and was the reverse grid of the World Championship. Jock Campbell took the win from Alex Crane and Gavin Botfield.
