Dan Bennett takes Hoosier R12 Aldershot

The 2 Litre Hot Rods put on a great show yesterday in round 12 of the Hoosier Tyre series where 745 Dan Bennett was the man of the moment. Backing up the success he had here 14 months ago scoring a heat and final double with 98 Richard Poulter winning the opening race. As promised 18 cars showed up including a visiting driver from Holland in car 24, and 999 Pat Casey from the Republic of Ireland. The first race started off with 69 James Forrest and 328 Michael Mills banging door panels with Mills taking the lead at the end of lap two. Forrest's car looked rather unbalanced as he spun round 360 degrees on the next lap dropping him to last. Car 98 Richard Poulter made his way past the 566 car of Marc Crome to take second place, before setting about closing down Mills. 745 Dan Bennett had moved up to 4th place ahead of Robert Gamble having a good run car 133. Further back 186 George Turiccki was trying to pass Brett Collison in 275, and as they ran wide 565 Dan Smith was able to move past both of them in a three abreast move on the pits bend. Car 66 the Ex National Hot Rod racer Martin Heath was having a good run in his gorgeous new Peugeot before losing out in the second half. Meanwhile Poulter had caught up with race leader Mills. Taking a wide line on the Aldershot turn in an attempt to get a good exit, he tried to get alongside as they came down the home straight. Mills just managed to cut him off before sliding out wide on the exit allowing Poulter to sweep past. In the closing stages Bennett and Gamble took second and third off Mills, as Poulter ran out the winner. However Bennett was docked two places for contact during the course of the race, dropping him to 4th.

The Start of the second heat saw Mills take an early lead as James Forrest's woes continued with mechanical issues putting him out after just one lap. Mills then proceeded to open out a substantial lead with 566 Marc Crome in second place, but 745 Dan Bennett was a man on a mission wasting no time in getting past on lap 9. 186 George Turiccki was making good progress from towards the back, as was Dan Smith in 565. 133 Robert Gamble was having another good run moving up to third place, but up front Bennett was rapidly closing in on Mills. In the closing stages he caught up with the 328 car and with 2 laps to go he made his move! It looked easy! Bennett thus ran out the winner with Mills second and Gamble third just ahead of the hard charging Turiccki.

The grid for the final saw the drivers start in the order of points they scored in the heat races. Bennett was on pole ahead of Gamble, Mills and Poulter were on the second row with the two star men Smith and Turiccki on row three. At the start Smith got a flyer but he couldn't quite capitalize on it as Bennett lead them through the pits bend for the first time. Gamble and Mills made contact on the Aldershot turn as Gamble slotted into second place. Smith and Turiccki were already making use of their grid positions, making their way through into second and third positions by lap six. At the front Bennett just seemed to be controlling the pace and was able to hold a gap over Smith who had the 186 car breathing down his neck. Turiccki seemed to have the faster car, but the experienced Dan Smith would keep him at bay all the way to the chequered flag. But it was victory for 745 Dan Bennett backing up the success he had here 14 mouths ago. It may not have been a hatrick this time, but still a brilliant performance. 565 Dan Smith and 186 George Turiccki were second and third to round off a great day's racing

Hoosier R12 Booking List Aldershot 11/09

This weekend the 2 Litre Hot Rods make their return to Aldershot for round 12 of the Hoosier Tyre series. Number 30 Martin Codling is currently leading the series after a heat and final victory at Eastbourne last time out. His closest rivals 118 Lewis Shelley and 330 Tyler Wilkin will be snapping at his heels, though it won’t be easy as Aldershot is a circuit which tends to favour more of the novice drivers! 16 cars are currently booked in, which is encouraging to see. One of which includes 999 Pat Casey visiting from the republic of Ireland. Others include the new English Champion Paul Wright in car 43, the return of Marc Crome in 566, the world champion Dan Smith in 565, and the winner of the Dutch open last weekend Chris Crane in car 75.

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
