In Brief

With the star grades away getting ready for the World Finals in a week, the Rising Stars had Arena Essex all to themselves on September 8. Possibly the biggest success was by Howard Martin, who backed up his heat two runner-up position with a win in the final, Dave Brown also getting a measure of success by beating Martin in the heat and grabbing third in the final behind Keith Perren, while the first heat went to Clive Killick. The devastating 44 car final was followed by a slightly smaller field in the Rawlins qualifier, won by Paul Ruskin, before the wrecking started again with Perren and Paul Lawes going at it but unable to outlast Tony McNeil's well battered estate.

Mick Sworder swept the board in his capture of the Rose Cassidy Memorial title at Arena Essex, overcoming challenges from Peter Hobbs in one race before a leisurly stroll to the front in the final. Martin Coles had a good meeting, managing to get a second place in the final, while David Polley got third in the final after a slow start, followed by a win in the Grand National qualifier.

The Ministox suffered heavily from stoppages during the Arena Essex September 8 meeting, with increasing numbers leading to more than one crash but, once fairly started, they provided some good, close racing, especially Colin Thorndyke who paid three trips to the pace car by getting a heat and final win plus a second place in the Allcomers race. Paul Brown also took a win in the other heat and Danny Stevens won the consolation.

Thorndyke going fast

Silly aside
Marshalls at Arena Essex ended up having to push a broken down tractor from the circuit, one of two tractors to break down that day. The first one had to retire after failing to pull the destroyed Gringo Ashdown machine from the circuit after the destructive final. It was just one of those days!
