Coventry BriSCA F1 World Final Build-Up #4

Latest Press Release from Coventry HQ:

BriSCA F1 Stock Cars World Championship Final Saturday 4th September 2010

Coventry MCM Stadium

The Future’s Bright – The Future’s Orange?

An Orange invasion threatens to upset the status quo in the BriSCA F1 Stock Cars World Championship weekend at MCM Coventry Stadium on Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th September.

Not since 1955 when Polish immigrant Jerzey Wojtowicz VC lifted high the World Final trophy has anything like a European name appeared on the roll of honour. In fact the nearest the trophy has come to going out of the country was when Scot Jock Lloyd won in 1961 – at the time he lived in Middlesex!

The [previous] Coventry press release on www.coventrystox.com lists a whole host of Dutch drivers who will be racing throughout the weekend and no less than eight have qualified for the World Final.

In years gone by the Orange order have not posed as great a threat as they do on this prestigious occasion; with new venues like Emmen in Holland giving more drivers the chance to race on dirt tracks; and greatly improved car preparation by ACON drivers – these Dutch competitors have been honing their skills, in a determined effort to make their presence felt at World 2010 at Coventry.

Not only the Dutch, but also the New Zealand contingent is looking to be taking challenging for the top prize in BriSCA F1 Stock Car racing in the UK very seriously indeed. Kiwi Scott Joblin looks to be an outside bet.

Reigning NZ 240’s Champion, Scott has gone to the trouble (and great expense) of shipping over his own F1 stock car built to BriSCA specifications by no less a car builder than Clive Lintern who emigrated to New Zealand some years ago. Lintern was an innovate stock car design and build ace who championed 1980’s superstar Nigel Whorton – and it is the Whorton family who are giving Scott all the support he needs to be another force to be reckoned with in the 2010 World Championship Final.

Whilst every driver on the 36 car grid will be targeting the highest step on the presentation podium – “As seen on TV in Gears and Tears”, UK rivals and champions of the sport, Andrew Smith and Frankie Wainman Junior will not take these challenges lying down.

Defending Champion Andrew is going for three World Finals in a row, only the third driver to do so if he succeeds – and FWJ who has been National Points Champion on 13 occasions has a few scores to settle as far as winning the F1 World is concerned. He is trailing his rival by 2 to 4 with his name on the solid silver trophy – so maybe those overseas entrants won’t get a look in after all.

The only way to find out who does what to whom, who lifts the trophy, champagne and laurels on the biggest night of the year in the BriSCA F1 stock car calendar is to be there:

Coventry MCM Stadium, Rugby Road, Brandon, Coventry. (turnstiles open 3.00pm)
Advance discount tickets available until midnight on Saturday 21st August.

At the same event Coventry Stadium is celebrating 50 years since staging its first World Final with an historic exhibition, a veteran car rally with cars from the 60’s 70’s and 80’s on display and racing in their own World Final. A unique time for nostalgia, to mingle with the stars of a bygone era, all included in the admission price.
