MALLORY DELIVERS THE GOODS - AGAIN!

Report by Dave Carter

This meeting attracted no less than 185 cars in a quick-fire programme of 24 races with just one race coming under caution.  The quality of the racing could not be faulted and in my view this meeting is without doubt one of the best of the year and a must-see event.

The meeting was promoted solely by INCARACE this time but it was still good to see many Spedeworth officials on duty as well as a team of Mallory Park regulars. 

The National Hot Rods were there in force this year now that their races were for World Qualifying points and for the first time a handful of BriSCA F1s in a series of demonstration events but credit must surely go to each and every driver that raced.  The action was fast, tight and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves judging by the smiles on everyone's faces!

A superb event!

See below for all the facts and figures on the day's racing.

SIMPSON WINS THE LEGENDS LONG TRACK CROWN

Report by Peggyann Lilley

Matt Simpson won the highly coveted title of Oval Track Legends British Long Track Champion at Mallory Park on the 18th May.

The rising star and son of former Hot Rod star Jeff Simpson staked claim to the honours after seeing leader Nik Grindrod suffer an engine blow out right in front of him on the start of lap four in the feature event. From then on, he only had to fend off Derek Hales along the Stebbe Straight midway of the race to reign supreme and collect his first major title in only his first season of racing Legends. It was terrible bad luck for Grindrod after he had raced so successsfully to win the two heats earlier during the meeting.

On previous performances it seemed Ian Hales would be favourite to win the major event having won it back in 2001, finishing third last year and winning a hat trick in Round 4 at Hednesford earlier this May but he only just pipped Pete Jenkins to the finishing post into second place thus leaving the last year runner-up Jenkins to finish third. Richard Grindrod, younger brother of Nik, finished a meritable fourth.

 

For the record 185 drivers raced at the meeting.  Here is the full drivers listings:
