Sheffield – July 25th 2010 Meeting Report

The meeting opened with an 18 car heat, which included Andy Smith on Hoosier tyres. Tim Warwick (307), James Morris (463), and Mike Williamson (111) had a three way battle for the lead for several laps, which ended with Warwick being squeezed onto a turn three fence post that ripped the outside rear wheel off the car.

Also falling foul of the notorious fence was Chris Brocksopp (338), who managed to drive his car up a fence post and along the top of the home straight fence a short distance. The yellows came out to repair the fence, with Morris leading them away on the restart. Neil Shenton (35) and Mark Gilbank (21) were both past the flying 463 car within a few laps, with Gilbank inheriting the lead, and ultimately the win, when Shenton retired in a cloud of smoke.

Next race for the F1s was the BriSCA F1 2010 World Semi-final (#1), REPORT HERE

With quite a few drivers loading up after the Semi, just 12 cars lined up for the Consolation. It was an uneventful race, with Russell Cooper (415) taking the win after passing the ever-improving Mike Williamson (111).

So onto the Meeting Final which started with Ford climbing over Shenton and then doing a 360 degree spin down the back straight. Smith (1) hooked up with Chris Brocksopp (338), with Wainman (515) piling in and all three losing time. Up front, lone white top Williamson led the race past the halfway stage, with Paul Hines (259) leading the red tops through the field. Hines eased Nickolls wide to take second, and then reeled in Williamson. Hines gave the 111 car a tap going into turn one, and Williamson couldn’t keep it out of the fence. This put Hines in the lead, but Wainman (212) was now rapidly closing in.

As the lap boards came out, Wainman had caught Hines, and with three to go he nerfed the 259 car wide to take the lead. Hines then lost out when Finnikin planted him into the turn one fence on the last lap. After his early problems, Smith (1) came back up the field to finish third, although as he was testing tyres he was removed from the results. Danny Wainman took the win, his first ever Final victory.

The GN gridded 17 cars, with Wainman (515), Lund, and Woodhull getting caught up with each other and the home straight fence when the green dropped. Williamson again got off to a good start, but he was caught out entering turn one and ended up putting himself into the fence, with second placed Ford then crashing into him. This left Neil Shenton (35) leading, but Tom Harris (84) wasn’t far behind, and the front bumper soon came into play. Shenton appeared to be ready for it and braked early, but another shove from Harris put the 35 car wide. Finnikin then nerfed Shenton wide to take second, with the 35 car then dropping back. Smith (1) took third place from Johnson on the last bend with a firm hit, with Johnson doing well not to catch the fence.
