Morgan Twice at Aldershot

Heat One
Sean O'Leary takes the first win of the day in the 2.0 Hot Rods after overhauling long-time leader Layton Millsom who drove well in his first race from the front of the grid.

Heat Two
A really good close race between the 2.0 Hot Rods as the lower graders are proving hard for the big names to catch around the Claycart Road tarmac. Once again 48 Millsom makes a great start but is eventually overhauled by 146 Scott Morgan who takes a fine win.

A fast and furious final saw 146 Scott Morgan take a double for the day and promotion to the yellow grade as the star drivers struggle to catch the flying lower graded drivers. A big incident saw a coming together between 7 Moss, 65 Willis and 565 Smith but fortunately little damage was done as we round off a cracking day's racing from the 2.0 Hot Rods!

Willis Wins Southern 100

Heat One (Drawn Grid)
A cracking race where pole sitter Charlie Jowers kept a tight line to take the win. A train of cars formed behind him but no-one was willing to take to the outside line. Mark Willis was docked for contact on Jowers as the 31 machine crossed the line on the infield side of the marker tyre!

Heat Two (Reverse Grid)
Martin Codling takes a fine win as several race stoppages put paid to the hopes of several drivers including 11 Alex Crane, 43 Paul Wright and 87 Jason Busby. A number of drivers fell foul of the steward for contact.

Southern Championship Final
The Southern Championship saw 65 Mark Willis on pole with 75 Chris Crane on his outside. Row 2 consists of World Champion 306 Will Reed and 72 Gary Goodswen. The two heat winners lined up on row 3 in the form of 30 Martin Codling and 31 Charlie Jowers.

A well earned win for Mark Willis who took full advantage of his pole position start as he maintained a safe gap back to Will Reed who just couldn't catch the 65 car. Reed came under a lot of pressure from Chris Crane but the 75 car broke down in the latter stages - allowing 304 Danny Fiske to take thid place. A great days hot rod racing.

GridArt Abstract Gallery

Clive Marchant has kindly put together a selection of abstract work of the 2Litre Hot Rod's for an exclusive gallery for the site.

In his own words...
"The 2litre Hot Rod formula offer's a avalanche of colour and car styles to keep my creative ideas flowing. These designs originate from photography but hopefully give an abstract artistic feel, very much a different approach from my usual Photoshop edits. I would like to personally thank Brian Lammey for allowing me the opportunity to create some exclusive images for 2litreHotRod.com and hope both supporters and drivers find them of interest."

I'm sure these will be gratefully received by the visitors of 2litrehotrod.com and I'd like to thank Clive for these works and his continued support for the site and the drivers within the formula.

Bennett wins at Ipswich

Report C/O Spedeworth.co.uk
Heat 1
Far from ideal conditions for the Hot Rods as they take to the Foxhall oval, they're here in good numbers again with 32 of them on track, 27 Joe Jackson and 475 Paul Kaynes take turns at leading, the wet track accounts for a few with 745 Daniel Bennett losing his rear bumper as a few cars spin out. 303 Gavin Botfield takes over but the waved yellows come out to check on a potentially injured driver, all OK though and they line up for the remaining 10 laps, and it's Botfield who races away to win though 96 Kevin Randell and 565 Dan Smith close up in the latter stages, 96 getting docked 2 places for contact.

Heat 2
11 Alex Crane is the early leader ahead of 745 Daniel Bennett, these two opening up a big lead ahead of the chasing pack led by 96 and 303. The conditions are again taking their toll as we lose a number of cars to spins and minor knocks, and it's Alex Crane who takes a win after a faultless drive, 96 Kevin Randell looks good for 3rd but clips a parked car late on and goes out.

The 2.0 Hot Rod final sees Daniel Bennett away and clear, again we lose a few to the conditions - although the rain has cleared there's a lot of wet shale on the track! Randell spins out near the end when 4th after a clash with 303.
