BriSCA F1 STOCK CARS - BriSCA F2 STOCK CARS - 1300 STOCK CARS

This meeting marked the Millennium Season's end for both BriSCA formulas and for such a late season session very good fields were attracted in both classes, 35 F1s and 65 F2s.

The meeting was the final round of the Mission America Series for the F1s and also the eagerly awaited Golden Helmet Decider between holder Frankie Wainman Junior and World Champion John Lund. The latter even resulted in Mr Lund arriving at the track almost an hour before the meeting started!

In the meeting proper the two-thirds format was used with the wins going the way FWJ, Series Points leader going into the meeting #434 Ivan Pritchard and John Lund. The final was started in points oder and Pritchard started on pole but as the race got underway it was soon #247 Gary Castell who led the field and even though Messrs Wainman, Smith and Lund were charging hard they failed to reel-in the B-Warm car. Interestingly, Castell was one of a handful of F1s that arrived early for afternoon practice and the victory emphasised the importance of testing for a big event.

In the Golden Helmet Junior Wainman won the Flying Lap and chose the inside grid position for the three lap, clutch-start no-holds-barred decider. At the off Junior forced Lund wide towards the fence on turn one and then sped off with a substantial lead. It looked all over. But on the exit of turn two on lap two Lund stopped and waited for FWJ to reappear. There then followed a hugely entertaining session of 'cat-and-mouse' antics leading to a stationary stand-off on turn four of Wainman's third lap. A couple of stop-starts and Wainman squeezed past taking a popular victory.  Great stuff!

The F2s it was 'one of those meetings' where the racing was characterised by numerous stoppages. Best of all was the Consolation which was started no less than four times!

It was a good night's racing and there can't be many people in the large crowd who can't wait for the next season.
