Saloons Turn On Action To Kick Off Tri Night Series

The threat of imminent rain and the gale force winds all contributed to the reduction of crowd numbers here at Max Motors Family Speedway this Saturday night; however there was still a small nucleus of Wellington stalwarts there who braved the elements to watch the featured class –The Coventry Cars Saloon Tri-Series.

14 cars took to the track for the first heat of the inaugural running of the Coventry Cars Saloon Tri-Series however; this was immediately reduced to 12 when both 4w Rodney Green and 34w Matt Eckersley retired to the infield before the off. 6w Dean Munn made a good start and took the lead for the first two laps until 9w Craig Burton, carrying on his good early season form, came from grid 6 to take over the front running which he held to the chequered flag. Martin Halcrow, driving daughter Ashleigh’s 242w came storming up from grid 9 making some good passes on his way to 3rd place behind 63w Dave Speirs. .. Read On...
 

Fireworks On & Off Track Draws Huge Crowd

The weather was uncertain with drizzle and the threat of rain but for once it didn’t deter the public and a huge crowd descended on Max Motors Family Speedway for the Rock FM Fireworks Supershow meeting on Saturday night, and if the crowd reaction was anything to go by the show was a great success. Of course the evening was not just a Fireworks show there was also Speedway racing on offer giving great value for money. Although the start of the racing was delayed by the late arrival of the ambulance due to mechanical breakdown the time waiting was well filled by the Before the Green pre-show with Alan Buxton, a Grand Parade and the Cycle Science Fat Bike Challenge where we saw the Wildcat mascot take on Max from Max Motors and actually beat him to the chequered flag.

The first class out on track when racing started was the Coventry Cars Saloons. The local field was joined by 17b Sam Croy and 27b Josh Smith. For those of you that noticed a random P in the mix and wonder why we are not including the 57p as a visitor, Calvin Honore is such a regular sight here that we consider him a local. The 242w of Ashleigh Halcrow was driven by her father Martin on the night due to Ashleigh’s absence. In their first heat 9w Craig Burton had a start to finish win but was put under immense pressure by 27b Josh Smith who finished 2nd.. Read On...
