The decision to run a meeting at Sheffield on a non Bank Holiday Monday night had raised a few eyebrows when it was first announced, but it turned out to be probably the best meeting to have been staged at the track for quite a few years.
The second tar meeting of season 2010 was staged at Northampton on a dry sunny evening in front of a larger than usual crowd who witnessed history being made as (191) Joshua Smith took his maiden BriSCA F1 final win with room to spare, in only his sixth career meeting in the formula.
Easter Monday saw James Morris take a career first Final win, in what emerged as an absolutely epic stock car race. On a cold but dry night, the track was in superb condition, and with enough cars present for decent grids in all five races, this was a prime example of why Belle Vue is such a great venue.
A bumper crowd was present for the first WCQR of 2010 (round 5) but they were not treated to the stockcar spectacular they deserved, the much anticipated meeting was a bit of a wash out due to the terrible weather conditions that besieged the track.
Meeting number two of the 2010 BriSCA F1 season was staged at the Norfolk Arena, Kings Lynn on a dry sunny and mild evening. Racefans entering the arena were able to view first hand yet more improvements to spectator facilities.
The 2010 season got under way at Manchester’s, Belle Vue Stadium. Good track conditions and enough cars made the first meeting of the season into a decent affair, with long distance traveller Mat Newson putting in a storming drive to take the first Final of the year.
