In a night of lower grade wins, Paul-Jay Lemons (444) drove a blinder in Heat One to take the flag, only to fall foul of post race inspection, handing the victory to Danny Wainman (212). Danny sportingly insisted Paul-Jay keep the trophy. Here we see the “lightened” car, minus the aerofoil, on its way to an excellent second place finish in the consolation.

Hmmm…It looks like Danny Wainman was the instigator of this little trip into the fence for Sworder and Harrison (197) but video evidence suggests he was just in the neighbourhood. It didn’t end there!

Matt Newson (16) holds a slender advantage over new World Champion Craig Finnikin (55) in the Final. Finnikin would eventually finish third, Frankie Wainman Junior (515) fifth and Newson sixth in another hotly contested Coventry feature race.
