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 Retains Best in Britain


Report by Paul WJS

The formula welcomed 2 former Best and World winners Jason Wilks and Kevin Randell. Wilks was racing a Corsa C, whilst Randell was out in a Saxo that seemed destined for his son Chris. There was also newcomer to the formula John Willis in the ex-McClure 205. Drier conditions than last year, but the track still seemed slippery. George Turiccki stepped off pole into the lead while in-form Richard Poulter clashed with Willis at the first turn and they both spun, Lewis Shelley ran out wide here and with his car stuck on the outside the race was halted to remove the car. At the green Turiccki pulled clear while further back Damon Wellman had a smokey blow-up on the back straight, as the cars behind tried to avoid Randell ended up taking a big t-bone from Luke Stonehouse, the pair scrambled to the centre. The next yellow came out when Michael Mills picked up a puncture, although initially parked up on turn 4 he crawled along the home straight and then started to reverse back, the yellows were out again but up front nothing was going to catch Turiccki. A much quieter heat two saw Paul Wright on pole and he pulled clear of Stonehouse, this would give Wright pole for the main race ahead of Chris Crane, Turiccki and Botfield. At the start Crane hung onto the outside for the first tour and then fell back into line. Wright edged ahead but that lead narrowed when the back-marking Willis cut across the front of him entering turn 3, Willis was hit sideways and straightened up allowing Wright to cut through on the inside with Crane and Turiccki now back on his bumper, Wright though eased clear to take his fourth Best in Britain title. After the flag Crane was disqualified for racing an unlogged tyre. Heat 1: 186, 11, 303, 75, 565, 745, 43, 110, 330, 30 Heat 2: 43, 280, 310, 110, 71, 745, 303, 330, 133 Final: 43, 186, 303, 11, 565, 745, 110, 71, 310, 280 Thanks to Paul - wjs

The End of Wimbledon

Statement from Spedeworth:

Spedeworth / Incarace would like to announce that following a letter of confirmation from GRA Limited it is now confirmed that the 2016/17 winter season at Wimbledon Stadium will be the final season of short oval racing at the Plough Lane venue before the site is closed for re-development.

The rumours have gone on for years about the demise of Wimbledon Stadium with everyone wondering at the end of every season if we will return for another year.

Thanks to many people behind the scenes, there have been petitions, negotiations and many forms of communication to keep stock car racing in the capital city. Thanks to all of the efforts from everyone Wimbledon Stadium has continued to run stock car racing over the past few years and we have witnessed some of the best moments in the stadiums history from fantastic Banger events to the domestic events which caught everyone by surprise with the quality of the racing on the night.

Unfortunately, the final decisions have been made by the local authorities and the vote was passed for the re-development of the site.

HOWEVER……

At this time of year fixture planning for the 2017 season is well underway and we are going to be organising some superb events not to be missed before the final meeting at Plough Lane which will take place on Sunday 26th March 2017 when we will bid farewell to Wimbledon Stadium.

The history of the sport at Wimbledon Stadium will never be forgotten and before the gates close for the final time we will be making even more memories that people will be talking about for generations to come.

Over the next few weeks the meetings will be announced via the Spedeworth / Incarace websites with some big surprises added to the mix so don’t forget to check the websites to make sure you don’t miss out on any of the upcoming news and dates for your diary.

Spedeworth / Incarace would like to thank everyone for their support over the years at Wimbledon Stadium from the drivers, officials, medical teams, stadium staff and of course all the race fans who have joined us come rain (and sometimes snow) or shine to add to the unique atmosphere that Wimbledon Stadium has always had.

Continuing with the 2016 half of the season at Wimbledon Stadium the next meeting is this Sunday (13th November) featuring the first half of the Best In Britain which includes the 1300cc Stock Cars, 2.0 Hot Rods, Lightning Rods and Superstox. First race starts at 5.30pm!
