Our Storeman Dan Latimer is an excellent Stock Car driver and we sponsor him. Dan had an excellent race on 25th August.
All Ford Sierra 'Special Rods'
1.6 engines with limited modifications.
Dan won his first heat from starting mid pack, he managed to cut his way through the field of cars to take the lead with a few laps still to go and then went on to win the race convincingly.
The second heat was also a fast race and because Dan won the first heat he then had to start at the back of his grade. He did well but got blocked behind some slower cars which on a tight tract made it difficult to pass them, he went on to finish 8th.
In the Grand National Final which is 5 laps longer than the heat races, Dan had to start at the back again. He managed to start making his way through the field of cars and make it into 2nd place with the leader a little under half a lap ahead, he pushed hard and started to reel him in and with two laps to go took the lead and went on to win the race.
This was the 2nd round from three of the summer series and the points Dan won helped push him to the top of the leaderboard.
He raced again on the Monday and had two 3rd places which was enough to secure the Summer Series Championship win.
Next race Sunday 5th October, 1pm Onwards......
