OUT NOW: F1Stockcars.com Season Review 2017

Today marks the official launch of the new F1Stockcars.com book. The Season Review 2017 contains the all the best bits from the website, as well as never-before-seen feature articles!

The following are excerpts from some of the new features to whet your appetites…

‘Yet despite the commonly accepted fact that most drivers prefer shale to tarmac, the average car attendance for tarmac during the 2017 season was 43.09 per meeting – actually better than the average car attendance for shale last season, which was 34.36 per meeting. That’s quite an interesting statistic considering that shale is supposed to be the preferred surface. Maybe it was down to the World Final being on tarmac, or is it the impact of the dreaded ‘Coventry effect’?’

Excerpt from The Return of Mildenhall, written by Jordan Hollands

‘Since the very beginning, the fans have been a fundamental part of stock car racing. After all, if nobody had turned up to watch at that very first meeting at New Cross Stadium in 1954, then the sport would have never got off the ground. But it wasn’t long before just going along to watch wasn’t enough for some fans, and they began to get more involved in the sport.’

Excerpt from When Fanpower Meets Horsepower, written by Carl Hesketh

‘The hire cars require a lot of maintenance, which can keep Newson busy during the week. Sometimes he doesn’t even get to work on his own cars until the morning of the day he will be racing them. The team, including Mat, his dad Robin and Chris Allen, works tirelessly on the fleet of hire cars. It’s hard work, but they do it for the love of the sport.’

Excerpt from Friends in Hire Places, written by Rhosanna Jenkins

It took ten years for a big name to move the other way, from F2 to F1, and keep winning after doing so. That driver was Dave Chisholm, 1970 F2 World Champion, who became the bane of master F1 racer Stuart Smith in the mid-seventies...’
