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.

Aldershot Report 01/04/2018

Around 16 Hot Rods took to the Aldershot circuit on Easter Sunday. Despite the lack of numbers due to a clash with Birmingham on Saturday night, the racing really lived up to it's reputation. The first race started with returning drivers Mark Constable 38 and 184 Lee Munday duking it out for the lead with Munday eventually getting the upper hand on lap 2. Behind them 24 Stuart Sculthorpe was leading the yellow grades with number 9 Paul Woodbridge just behind. Having won the two heat races on gala night, 146 Scott Morgan was flying through the field passing cars hand over fist. He was up to 5th before a miss timed move on Woodbridge sent the number 9 car into the armco on the pits bend. Morgan carried on without loosing too much time. Sculthorpe then got past Constable to take second place with Morgan following through. Scott looked like a man on a mission out there! A slight mistake in Sculthorpe's defence allowed Morgan through into second. Behind them the race was heating up with 745 Dan Bennett in his new Peugeot overtaking 328 Michael Mills for 4th place with 303 Gavin Botfield also charging up from the back. In the closing stages Morgan had caught Munday and was challenging for the lead. It was a real close battle but Munday showed no signs of rustiness as he kept Morgan at bay to take the win. Morgan was second with Sculthorpe a good third place just ahead of Bennett and Botfield.

Munday struggled off the line at the start of race two allowing 38 Mark Constable to take an early lead. It would only last a handful of laps before the impressive looking Sculthorpe came through to take it up on lap 5. Morgan was also looking rapid as he came through to take second place on the following lap. Bennett was up to 4th being chased by his old car now in the hands of 228 Alan Thorndyke. 303 Gavin Botfield was also having another good race, charging through from the back up to 5th place as the lead pair were now running nose to tail! Despite coming under intense pressure from Morgan, Sculthorpe held his ground and was looking good, but with just a quarter of the race to go his right front suspension collapsed forcing him to drop out of the competition. A disappointing end to a promising track debut. 146 Scott Morgan thus inherited the lead and went on to win followed home by Dan Bennett, Gavin Botfield and Alan Thorndyke. Meanwhile last year's Hoosier tyre series winner 186 George Turiccki could only manage 6th this time round!

Morgan was on pole for the final having scored the most points during the heat races with Bennett alongside him. Botfield started third with Munday, Thorndyke and Turiccki behind. At the start Morgan got a blistering getaway as did Turiccki. Botfield tapped the rear of Bennett as they came through the pits bend causing some major congestion. There were three abreast down the back straight with Turiccki trying to go round the outside of both Botfield and Bennett but it didn't work as Botfield won out the battle for second place with Thorndyke moving through into third. Miraculously they all survived with Bennett being the biggest loser in all the congestion dropping back to 5th! This effectively gave Morgan ahead start but Botfield wasn't about to let him out of his sights for long! His car was setting a hot pace as he caught the 146 car at half distance. The two of them had a great ding dong battle with Botfield trying to get the undercut on a number of occasions. Eventually the pressure took it told on Morgan. A mistake just after lapping Constable and Botfield made his move to take the lead as they came through the pits bend. Morgan seemed to be in trouble with tyres as Thorndyke was now closing him down in 3rd, with Bennett back up to 4th after his earlier delay at the start. But by that point too much time had been lost. Botfield went on to win as Morgan duly held on to his second position with Thorndyke in third and Bennett in 4th. In all a great days racing with very few penalties. Well done to all the drivers who took part!
Thanks to Tom for the excellent report as always.

Aldershot Preview 01/04/2018

Round 2 of the 2 Litre Hot Rods Hoosier tyre series takes place at Aldershot on Easter Sunday 1st April. Last week up at Ipswich saw a really interesting start to the new campaign. We had at least six new drivers to the class this year, two if which were victorious in the heats, including number 9 Paul Woodbridge and 811 Graeme Parrot a former hot rod racer from Standlake. Number 2 Ryan Morgan was the winner of the final with regular front runners George Turiccki 186 and 43 Paul Wright in 2nd and 3rd. Two other new entries include two former Lightning Rod racers, 58 Ben Murry who's raced in the 2 litres once before, and Ben Furness in 339. Thus we also have some drivers returning to the class in the shape of Lee Munday 184, Mark Constable in car 38 and 24 Stuart Sculthorpe who once raced Lightning Rods in the past. So with some interesting new talent for this season it's going to be very interesting to see how the pecking order shapes up in 2018!
