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!

Hoosier Grand Final Report

A total of 18 2 Litre Hot Rods made the trip to the Aldershot Raceway for the final round of their Hoosier tyre series. Sunday afternoon would see two drivers making debuts at the Rushmoor Arena including former outlaw hot rod racer Graham Jackson in 666, and continental racer Frank Nohring in car 116. The first race was started in the order of the series points with the new English champion and series winner George Turiccki 186 on pole position, alongside him the 310 car of Sean O'Leary. Damon Wellman lined up third in car number 8, with 35 Mitchell Souter of company. On the third row it was ex stock rod pilot Alan Thorndyke in 228 along with veteran 303 Gavin Botfield. At the start Turiccki made full use of his pole position to lead into the first corner as Wellman got the jump on O’Leary for second, and Botfield was able to leapfrog Thorndyke on the next bend for 5th. Turiccki may have already won the series but it was clear he was still going for it locking up the brakes as he came through the Aldershot turn on lap 3. Botfield’s car certainly looked well dialled into the raceway as he past Souter for 4th and then O’Leary for third. It soon became apparent all was not well with O’Leary’s car, and it wasn’t long before he started dropping down the order and retired later. In the closing stages Botfield had caught Wellman in the race for second place but couldn’t find a way past. After what has been a very consistent season for the English Champion, George Turiccki ran out the winner performing a massive drift off both the bends in celebration! Damon Wellman’s second place was enough to nick Sean O’Leary for second place in the overall standings. Botfield took third place.

For the last two races the cars were started in their usual graded order, with 69 James Forrest the sole white grader starting up front. Forrest lead from the start while behind in the yellow grade Scott Morgan 146 was off to a flying start leapfrogging both 328 Michael Mills and 228 Thorndyke for second. Morgan’s car was absolutely flying out there and it wasn’t long before he found himself in the lead as Thorndyke got past Mills and then Forrest for second. Further back though there was trouble for Luke Stonehouse in 280, as he rammed into O’Leary on the pits bend and then taking out 11 Alex Crane on the Aldershot bend in one lap! Meanwhile having had a spell in the national hot rods earlier this year, 29 Duane Peacock got past Mills for third place. Number 8 Damon Wellman was up to 4th place, but suddenly the car just died on him with a lap to go! 146 Scott Morgan took the win from Thorndyke in second place, proving once again that the old Nova still has the pace! 29 Peacock was third, and the German racer Frank Nohring in 116 drove well to finish in 10th place after all the mayhem.

After starting at the back for the last two races, 666 Graham Jackson had the luxury of starting up front along with James Forrest for the final. The two were locked in combat on the opening lap with Jackson muscling his way past at the end as Forrest suddenly lost power and retired on the following lap. Despite having a few minor niggles with the car Jackson was setting a good pace up front leading most of the way. He was soon caught however by the 146 car of Morgan. There was a great battle between them until what looked like a misjudged/timed blocking manoeuvre sent Jackson into a 180 on the Aldershot bend! But despite this little excursion Jackson would continue to finish in 10th spot. In the closing stages 303 Gavin Botfield was carving his way through the field moving up to second place, but by then he’d run out of laps to catch and pass Morgan before the chequered flag! Morgan took the win with Botfield second and Thorndyke in third. But the man of the day was 186 George Turiccki as he won the 2 Litre Hot Rods Hoosier tyre series for 2017!
Thanks to Tom for the report and Hoosier for sponsoring the series.

George Turiccki is the English Champion

George Turiccki won the English Championship in fine style at Northampton on 30/09/17.
Heat 1 took place in dry conditions, I got spun by someone pushing in the pack on lap 1 into the wall, then after a couple of laps Alan Thorndyke was spun causing a stoppage. Mitch Souter was leading at this stage, after the restart there was a good battle for the lead between Mitch, Alex Crane and Paul Wright, with Paul taking the win.
David Leech took Heat 2 (sorry I did not see this race as I was in the pits repairing damage. Thanks to Deane Wood for getting a marshall to weld my throttle pedal)
It was now raining as the Grid was formed for the English Championship. Paul wright was on pole with George Turiccki on his outside. The race started in greasy conditions with the track improving as the race continued. George took the lead and a convincing win in difficult conditions with Paul second and David Leech third.
