European Championship Report by Tom

An immense 40 car field featuring drivers from across four nations showed up to contest the European Championship at Ipswich Spedeweekend 2018. The first race started off with two drivers who we so often see up at the sharp end of the grid with Irishman Adam Best in 959 and Englishman Paul Wright in car 43 battling it out for the lead with Best just holding on for the win. Wright was a close second with Jamie Bowring finishing a solid third in car 313. Coming in 4th place was Dan Bennett in car 745 for England and despite his lack of knowledge with the track, continental racer Gerton Boes 333 drove well to finish 5th for Holland. Northern Irishmen 54 Adam Hylands and number 9 Glenn Bell had a good race long battle finishing 6th and 7th, with the National champion from Scotland Wully Hardie 72 joining in towards the end in 8th. German driver Marcus Strob in 226 was 9th despite a spin, with Dutch driver Martin Vowinkel in 22 rounding out the top 10.

The second race was a bit more lively as Gavin Botfield 303 lead them away from pole whilst number 30 Martin Codling was an early casualty after a clash between Billy Bonnor 844 and number 8 Damon Wellman. In all the congestion Bennett hit the stationery Codling car putting him into retirement as well. At the front Botfield was still leading with Wellman, Bonnor and 186 George Turiccki giving chase. Bonnor was pushing Wellman very hard but the top three were slowed up up by a backmarker and Turiccki ran into the back of Bonnor’s car causing him to spin out onto the speedway. At this point the Scottsman Gordon Alexander in car 71 and number 11 Alex Crane were moving into the equation with 72 Hardie and 54 Hylands not far behind either. Botfield was still holding onto his lead with Wellmon hot on his heals but with hit by Turiccki sending him out wide giving Turiccki a run up the inside! Wellman just held him off before George dive-bombed him on the back-straight 2 laps later costing them time and places. Alexander there for inherited second place with Crane and Hardie up into 3rd and 4th. And that’s how they remained to the flag with 303 Gavin Botfield running out the winner. Turiccki was excluded from the results for his rash tactics promoting Hylands to 5th and Irishman Ryan McClure to 6th in 941. 35 Mitchell Souter was 7th, Lee Carlin was in 8th racing under the number 36 for this weekend, with Dutchman Rik vad Linden 18 and 280 Luke Stonehouse rounding out the top 10.

For the European championship it was 54 Adam Hylands on pole thanks to his consistency during the heats, with 72 Wully Hardie alongside him on the front row. 43 Paul Wright was third ahead of the earlier winner 959 Adam Best, with 71 Gordon Alexander and 941 Ryan McClure 5th and 6th. However, it took three attempts to get the big race underway. The first start was stopped due to an accident on the homestretch and the second due to a massive roll over for 959 Adam Best thanks to a collision with Alexander. The Scott was also involved in an incident with Hardie on the back-straight which would result in a disqualification after the race. The race was restarted in lap sheet order with Hylands leading the way from Wright and McClure in an excellent third. Alexander was 4th with Bell in 5th, despite having to cope with a loose engine bonnet on his car! McClure was do a great job up front racing against the best but couldn’t hold off the world champion for long as Alexander soon got past him to take third place a few laps later. McClure now started to come under pressure from Bell and after getting caught up in traffic Bell made his move on the back-straight. They were side by side for a lap, but McClure just managed to claw it back round the outside before he was then hit from behind and sent spinning in front of Morgan and Botfield allowing Carlin to take advantage and move through into 5th place! Up front meanwhile the race was on for the lead as Hylands had been caught by Paul Wright who was really starting to apply the pressure! As they raced into the closing stages Wright tried everything he could, but Hylands held on to win the European Championship after a brilliantly driven race. Wright had to be content with second place this time round, and with the exclusions of Alexander and Bell, it was Lee Carlin who took third in 36 with 303 Gavin Botfield in 4th. Number 11 Alex Crane was 5th with Irishman Stuart Cochrane setting the fastest lap on his way to 6th place. 133 Robert Gamble was 7th with the unfortunate McClure in 8th. Bonnor battled his way up from the back to finish 9th with 280 Luke Stonehouse in tenth.

Despite not having any luck on Saturday Bonnor made amends in the all comers race on Sunday as he went on the win with 228 Alan Thorndyke in second place and 29 Duane Peacock in third. In all a great weekends racing from the 2 Litres. Well done to all the drivers and their respective teams who took part. Congratulations to the new European Champion for 2018, it is 54 Adam Hylands!

Southern Championship Report 27/05/18

A good field of 19 hot rods turned up for the Southern Championship around the tight and torturous Aldershot circuit on Sunday afternoon. Fortunately the early morning thunderstorms had blown over leaving us with some nice sunshine, and a clear dry track ready for racing. For the first race a random Incarace draw was made with 58 former Lightning Rod racer Ben Murray in pole position. Along side him was the 184 car of Lee Munday. 146 Scott Morgan was up there again with third on the grid. 666 Graham Jackson, Damon Wellman number 8, and the defending champion 186 George Turiccki completing the top six starters. As the green flag dropped it was Murray who lead them away from Munday as Morgan went wide on the Aldershot turn allowing Wellman and a fast starting Turiccki through in into 3rd and 4th. George racing a new car for this weekend was absolutely flying out there as he then past Wellman for 3rd a couple of laps later. The local man 303 Gavin Botfield was up to six place and also flying, as Turiccki pulled a dummy move on the back-straight to pass Munday for second. In just a lap he was right on the tail of race leader Murray and tried to pull off the same manoeuvre, but was too far back as Murray held his ground. But Turiccki dug deep and made his move on the following lap to take the lead as Wellman retired on the pits bend. Behind the lead battle Botfield was able to find a way past Munday for third before setting about Murray. In the closing stages he was right on Ben’s tail and with just a lap and a half to go he made his move down on the Aldershot turn to take second place. So the defending champion 186 George Turiccki ran out the winner from Botfield and Murray, with Munday a good 4th and Morgan 5th.

With the reversed grid in place for race it was former Classic Hot Rod star Jamie Bowring on pole position in 313 with the world champion Gordon Alexander 71 all the way from Scotland in second, 228 Alan Thorndyke in third and 35 Mitchell Souter in forth. As the green flag flew the top 4 duly held positions with number 30 Martin Codling in 5th from 339 Ben Furness and 303 Gavin Botfield. After a slow start getting to grips with the track in race one, Alexander seemed to be in his groove and was really hounding Bowring for the lead as Souter made his move on Thorndyke for third. Further back 275 Brett Collison was taken out in an incident with 222 Ayrton Mills on the pits bend. Brett’s race was over where Mills was able to continue despite some heavy front end damage. Meanwhile Alexander was lining up his assault for the lead as Bowring went wide down on the pits bend. Gordon ceased the opportunity and took the lead. 186 George Turiccki's championship defence was dealt a blow as he was taken out down in an incident down on the Aldershot turn moments later. At this point 35 Mitchell Souter was also coming up close in third, and was now hounding Bowring for second as Codling got past Thorndyk for 4th with Botfield closing them down in 6th. Codling and Thorndyke were held up slightly by a back-marker allowing Botfield to close right up on the battle. A mistake from Thorndyke on the Aldershot turn and Botfield was through and into 5th straight away. Bowring’s car seemed a bit tail happy coming off the bends, and with 3 laps to go Souter tried his move on the back straight but didn’t quite make it. Botfield was closing on them all the time setting a blistering pace. On the next lap Bowing slipped wide again and this time Souter got along side. They were door handle to door handle through the Aldershot turn but Souter was through. Botfield snatched the opportunity and followed him through into third as they started the last lap. So after his warm-up in race one, Gordon Alexander went on to win with Souter second and Botfield in third.

Gavin’s consistency gave him pole position for the Southern Championship with Alexander alongside him. On row two Ben Murray was third in 58 with 35 Souter 4th, with the defending champion George Turiccki back in 11th after his earlier problems in race 2. An equal start from the front two runners saw Botfield & Alexander racing door handle to door handle through the pits bend and down the back-straight putting Gordon in an awkward position. They banged wheels on the Aldershot turn, knocking Alexander out wide and allowing Murray through into second as they started lap two. Alexander tried to come back but Murray was in no mood to give way. Codling had moved up to 4th place with Souter 5th and Furness 6th. Despite his lack of experience as a 2 Litre Hot Rod driver Murray was setting a very strong in the 58 car, and was really giving Botfield a hard time. But all the time Gavin stayed cool, as the top three begun to pull clear of the rest of the field. Number 30 Martin Codling was having an intense battle with Souter, Furness and Bowring with Turiccki moving up the order to 8th at this stage. At the back of the field 222 Mills had a coming together with Mark Constable in car 38 taking them both out into the fence and eliminating both from the race. At the front Botfield was still leading with Murray still shadowing his every move in second place. Alexander was still in touch but not really able to make an impression on the front runners. Then 313 Jamie Bowring had a massive spin down on the Aldershot turn clipping Jackson in the process, fortunately he was able to continue. In the closing stages Murray was right on Botfield’s bumper and challenging for the lead. But Botfield was not about to be moved and duly held on to win the Southern Championship with Murray finishing in an excellent second place with the world champion Alexander in third. 339 Ben Furness another lightning Rod racer was 4th with the out going champion George Turiccki moving up to 5th after Codling and Souter were each docked two places for contact during the race. So overall another great days racing, well done to Gavin Botfield the new Southern champion! 58 Ben Murray though was the real stand-out in second place after a cracking drive and setting the fastest lap of the race! Definitely one to watch for the future!
Thanks to Tom for the report.
