Coventry – May 7th 2011

Back to Coventry. The Golden Helmet championship appears to have been canceled, but that won’t stop a large contingent of drivers descending on the premier stock car stadium.

Racing starts: 7:00pm
Also on the bill: f2s

Coventry Press Release.

Joining the Big League F1 Stock Cars at MCM Stadium Coventry on Saturday night 7th May are the BriSCA F2 Stock Cars, fresh from a successful meeting at the stadium on 30th April.

BriSCA F1 are slightly outnumbered by their little brothers – to date 58 F1’s and 79 F2’s have booked in to race at the Brandon Oval.

It’s an emotional roller coaster for two lower grade drivers local to Coventry, F1 45 Nigel Haarhy (Solihull) is looking to add to his recent point scoring success at Belle Vue, whilst F2 driver Andrew Brewin (Warwick), who won his first race in eleven years of racing on Saturday 30th April at Coventry, is looking to make a winning double at his home track.

The F1 World of Shale Series sponsored by Teng Tools is headed by Andrew Smith, with Frankie Wainman Junior second in the table and Craig Finnikin third. The Series Finale is at Coventry in November and a lot can happen between now and then

The Whites and Yellows Championship gains momentum every month – 27 hopefuls take to the shale on Saturdary night and there is a bundle of talent amongst them including Barry Heath (Walsall) who rolled his F1 on the back straight last time, better luck this time for our Barry!.

Joining the superstars at the back of the grid for the first time is Ed Neachell (321) (Sutton Coldfield). Ed has been a revelation at the start of this season and has come close to winning a World Final in the past. Definitely one to watch for local fans.

F1’s bookings boast ten star grade drivers, and seven superstars whilst the Twos yield nine stars and four superstars.

F1 World and National Points Champion Andrew Smith is back from his holiday with a vengeance looking to repeat the success he enjoyed at Sheffield on Bank Holiday Monday.

It could be a local derby there is plenty of competition in all grades for the May meeting trophies … but who can discount the Smiths and the Wainmans who are so dominant in the Heart of England … be there to see all the action for yourself.

MCM Coventry Stadium, Rugby Road, Brandon, Coventry, start time 7.00pm
