Small Car Special
Part 1 Legends
Old Hands and Young Guns
The last two years have seen the Legends go from strength to strength – Paul Huggett spent the evening with them at Ipswich recently and finds a lot of the classic mix that makes a short track class into a successful one.
Part 2 Midgets
For years the Grand Prix Midget club has struggled to get bigger grids. If club chairman Andy Collins and Hertfordshire’s Lowe brothers have anything to do with it, that will happen sooner rather than later – what’s more, there could be more cars out there running the front engine format.
Part 3 BabyGrands
A Grand Little Baby
In the third and final sector of our ‘Small Car’ racing special, Super Rod World Champion Malcolm Foskett gets downsized a bit and tells us about driving the NASCAR look-a-like BabyGrands. Parts 4 and 5 in the November issue.
Hornshaw Top at Lincoln
2003 Fastest Man on Grass meeting – 669 drivers, with around 600 cars between them signed on for this years big Autograss event at the Lincolnshire Showground, the two day meeting starting promptly – of necessity – on both days.
2003 Swaffham Spedeweekend
Spedeworth International held their second Swaffham Spedeweekend on August 30/31 which was a whole month earlier than last year’s highly successful inaugural event, one that was held in the most glorious weather in September.
There were two World Championships up for grabs for 1300 Stock Cars and Grand Prix Midgets and a host of other titles for the eight formulae, some 264 cars raced over the two days packing both the pits and the usual car park.
