FLEET MOTOR CLUB - SUNDAY 25 APRIL 2004

Thunder Cars and Hot Hatches shine in Fleet Opener

The third Rolling Thunder Show of 2004 was held at Fleet Motor Club last Sunday. With the help of ace navigator, Mrs Smiffyman, and team Foskett in tow, we managed to get to the track in time for the start of practice. The venue nestles in the heart of a section of MOD land known as Rushmoor arena, which lies just outside over Aldershot. The newly refurbished track consists of three quarters of tarmac surface and the final quarter being of well settled concrete. The wide sweeping bends and wide straights give ample room for overtaking, and from a photographers perspective the outside area gives plenty of scope to capture that elusive shot.

All of the formulas represented made a good effort to put on a show for the spectators, however first mention should go to the Thunder cars. Fleet regular driver, Andy Tedder gave a good account of himself in his rapid front wheel drive Nova. But once again Dickie Burtenshaw in his Toyota starlet won heat & final, with a dazzling display of outside line driving.

New driver to the Hot Hatch brigade, Mark Southam, in his immaculate Corsa, showed he has lost none of his old racing flair, even after a two year layoff. Mark managing to hold off the hard charging pack of Fiesta’s and Nova’s. Unfortunately the pressure taking its toll as Mark relinquished his lead on the final lap, spinning harmlessly into the infield.

The UK Modified’s fielded the most number of cars, with drivers from Ringwood and from the old Alwalton track near Peterborough. The racing was fast, clean and kept the spectators on the edge of their seats. Owen Brown once again proving to be ahead of the pack by taking heat and final wins.

The Rolling Thunder Show moves back to its usual venue at Arena Essex on Saturday 8th May, racing starts at 6.30pm.
