Wrighty Finally Reigns

With no reigning champion (Mark Cooper not racing) there would be a new champion. The winners before Cooper: 43 Paul Wright and 110 Jason Wilks were racing and so was the 1993-4 winner 65 Mark Willis. The winner of 1997 Malcolm Blackman was viewing from the stands. The last Irish winner was back in 1995, trying their luck this year was 964 Bradley Dynes and 50 Wayne Woolsey in his new Saxo.

Heat 1
Woolsey was bumped aside at the start, he got caught on the outside line and fell back a few places. Wilks took up the running but he collected a black cross for contact on 8 Damon Wellman. The first caution was needed when 31 Charlie Jowers hit the fence by the starters rostrum, he was clipped by 11 Alex Crane and 22 Dan Payne who slide into the centre and into the parked car of 188 Rob Naismith.

For the restart Wilks led 7 Collin Moss, 88 Dale Atkins, Woolsey, Wellman and 310 Sean O’Leary. After the green Wellman spun out while Atkins put the bumper in on Moss to nudge him aside at turn 1, the next bend he ran deep which allowed Woolsey inside for second place. Moss also got back inside Atkins and ran him out wide allowing O’Leary and 304 Danny Fiske to move up. The chequers fell to Wilks but he was docked for contact handing the win to Woolsey.
Res: 50, 7, 110 (x-2), 310, 304, 65, 88 (x-2), 197, 43

Heat 2
World Champion 306 Will Reed led off proceeding but his engine was spluttering around the track, he held a distance led over the chasing duo of Wright and Willis. 188 Rob Naismith almost put himself in the fence on turn 4 that caused Reed to take avoiding action, now Wright and Willis closed up. With Reed struggling to defend his lead he was simply out-powered on the home straight and Wright swept past. Even with Reed’s poor sounding car the front 3 were half a lap clear of the rest of field that bunched up behind 30 Martin Codling.

Naismith pushed a little harder and this time hit the fence on the exit of turn 2, the race continued with a stationary yellow and Naismith done a great job to extract the car and get it to the centre even with a wheel hanging off. The bigger bunch of cars battling for the midfield places eventually found the fence this time back-marking Dynes and Wellman touched the posts to bring out reds and chequers.
Res: 43, 306, 65, 197, 30, 304, 310, 565 (x-2), 88, 50

Woolsey made a better start than Willis off the front row and was leading entering turn 1. Willis made contact with the back of Woolsey to put him offline and put Willis into first with Wright also making up ground. Yet again the fence claimed a victim, this time 146 Scott Morgan going in with 390 Dean Hunt running into the side of him.

For the restart the running order was Willis, Wright, Woolsey, O’Leary, Fiske, Moss and Reed. Wright started to put the pressure on Willis and moved inside him much to the appreciation of the crowd however Willis (who must have thought he was racing a stock car) put the bumper next bend to take back first. Woolsey moved inside Wright in a separate incident, while Fiske moved up to fourth place as the front six raced together as one. Willis took the flag but was docked for contact and so was Woolsey this promoted Wright and Fiske to first and second. Willis was booed on his lap of honour and in played up to this time. The result could still change, although video evidence was used drivers have appealed this result. Only 11 cars finished.
Res: 43, 304, 65 (x-2), 50 (x-2), 7, 110, 310, 88, 197, 30

The race was once again stopped and Woolsey was out. The race ran to it's conclusion with Hylands first over the line, Heatrick second and Martin third, but all three had been black crossed earlier in the race and were docked 2 places, this promoted Shane Murray to first and Andrew Murray to second.
