Big grids, close
classes and a great paddock atmosphere there is no better championship to race
In class A
(road going) Dale Reet leads the fight for class honours followed by John Gill
and then Carl Robinson.
In class B

failure at Oulton means he is hungry for a win so we expect to see some hard
thought racing to separate the front runners this weekend.

Burchill and then Mike Williams.
