Under 25’s Championship Update

BriSCA F1 Stock Car drivers under 25 years of age have a golden opportunity to showcase their potential and talent at Coventry Stadium on Saturday 5th September, host track for the Under 25s 2009 Championship race.

The race carries sponsorship in cash and kind amounting to over £1,600, raised by stock car fanatic, painter and decorator Dave Leonard who has cajoled many fans and sponsors to donate sums ranging from £10 to over £500 from Coventry Stadium promotor Avtar Sandhu.

The winner’s purse is a cool £500, while a novel lap leader bonus is another incentive to make every lap of the 330-metre oval count. F1 Stock Car Racing is a contact formula, so plenty of front bumper should be brought into play.

Defending his title is Loughborough-based Lee Robinson who has already developed a hugely popular following among stock car fans, with his confident, dare-devil style of driving, taking on established names in the sport, such as National Points Champion Frankie Wainman Junior and World Champion Andrew Smith – and occasionally getting the better of them.

A grid of 20 drivers is eligible to race in the Under 25s Championship, including Lee Fairhurst from Bolton, who recently won the BriSCA F1 Stock Cars European Championship; last year’s European Champion from Nottingham Daniel Johnson; Silsden’s Daniel Wainman, son of the legendary Frank Wainman Snr; and World Final qualifier Matthew Newson, who regularly travels from Norfolk to race on the Brandon oval.

The growing number of competitors for this race proves how appealing the formula is to young men – and ladies. Let’s not forget Hayley Parkinson from Lancashire, who will be the only girl in the race. Hayley is fearless and exciting to watch. Winning is not beyond her and that would really cock a snoop at the young guns. Another of these young guns is Hayley’s own brother, Ike, who turned 17 on 15 August and will be the youngest driver on the grid.
