Panton shines in UK Sprint Cars

The UK Sprint Cars have been one of the features formulas at the Rolling Thunder Shows and recently they have attracted some new talent. Duncan Panton, who was a star of the Ringwood Superstox, bought one of the new Bandit Sprint Car chassis and has been slowly developing the car. All his hard work and patience paid off on Saturday when he won Heat and final, keeping at bay the hard charging and vastly experienced Vince O’Connor. Newcomer Mark White (#2), who previously raced on grass tracks continues to impress and looks to be a good bet for championship honours this year. Next weekend sees the Sprint Cars travelling across the channel to Warneton in Belgium, where they are likely to stretch their legs on this superb banked oval.

Newcomers to the Thunder car formula also showed their skills with Billy Groom in an immaculate Mk 1 Escort taking a well deserved and popular heat, and Terry Spooner in his extremely rapid Peugeot also taking a fine win. However there was no stopping the wily campaigner Dick Burtenshaw who took a fine win in the Final.

Guest driver in the Baby Grand’s was short circuit official test driver Malcolm Foskett who showed he was no slouch, by taking a heat and final win, with regular pace man Andy Brown chasing him hard all the way.

The Mini Sprints are beginning to establish themselves as a fun formula for young aspiring racing drivers. These kart based machines are proving to be a good budget formula and looks like a good way to learn racecraft. The broad smiles on the youngster’s faces are testimony to the fact they really enjoy the racing. Don’t forget Coulthard and Schumacher started out racing Karts, look how well they turned out!

Finally, following last months mishap with the RTS pace car, Malcolm Foskett was taking no chances this Saturday, turning up in full race gear complete with crash helmet!

Make a date in your diaries for the next shows at Fleet raceway on 27th June and 10th July at Arena Essex.
