Stockcars

June 2016 After the seaside setting for National round 1 down on the south coast at SOMCC in St Leonards on Sea the drivers contesting this year’s National Series moved to the Lakeside setting at RSCL, Stoney Stanton.

The racers were treated to dry and sunny conditions and the racing turned out hard and fast with bumpers being used effectively to gain places during the qualifying heats. National Points leader Ben Harding was the quickest after the first four rounds, guaranteeing his place in the final. The second automatic qualification place went to Sam Wearing, who set the fastest Round Four heat score to finish ahead of Notts & Derby member Roy Watson. After two frantic semi-finals to decide which other four drivers would make up the final, Ben Harding continued his blistering pace to take the win one lap ahead of Mark Whittaker in second. Dick Batty fought hard against Roy Watson for third place, eventually finishing comfortably in front by the end. Sam Wearing and Alex Wood finished in fifth and sixth, both suffering engine cuts during the race.


Leading the National points standings after the first two rounds is Amelia Batty and with the next round being at her home club at NORA in Keighley she is well placed to continue her lead into round 4 back down on the south coast at the Adur club oval. Overall points standing are as follows :-
