Superb Sizzling Saturday Stock Car Racing Semi @ Spectacular Stoke!

The BIG one everyone has been counting the days down 'all season' at Loomer Road, the BriSCA Formula One Stock Car World Championship Semi Final - and WHAT a grid! The firepower is awesome with BriSCA's finest in the top four rows!
How much bigger could it be with a front row boasting popular Chesterfield Superstar Dan Johnson in pole with Danny Wainman on the outside, not a favourite spot going into turn one as 'brother' and reigning World Champion Frankie Wainman Jnr lines up on row two inside and arch villain for many - and another former World Champion Tom Harris outside row 2. Row 3 sees a very useful Paul Hines from Leicestershire inside and alongside Mr Box Office Sworder having it all to do after a lengthy shale lay off due to engine issues. On four is Cheshire's Luke Davidson whose tarmac orientation has seen a burst of form of late however he had a familiarisation outing at King's Lynn a few weeks ago on shale and acquitted himself well. Rotherham's Mark Gilbank is a 'thoroughbred' of an F1 Stock Car drivers who is reknown for taking no prisoners and on five we have Lancashire's quietly consistent Warren Hunter joined by the ebullient Mancunian Scott David's who currently races as part of the Matt Newson team and has recently burst into form - and that's just the first 5 rows out of 12 highlighted!

Chesterton which has been around since 1973 is one of BriSCA's more basic venues and it's real charm really is it's 1970's 'proper' stock car feel where the track is quite literally the star and stage for the ultimate in action! 
Complimenting the programme are BriSCA F2 Stock Cars who are always popular at Stoke and such as interest, the bookings full sign was up almost a month before the event with a literal whose who of the sport on show as many clamber for some shale experience before the forthcoming World's and gives a nationwide feel to the entry. BriSCA F1 Stock Cars enjoy a full support programme and last but not least we have the ever popular action lacked national Ministox!

This really could prove to be 'the' stock car meeting of it's era at Stoke, let's pray for decent weather to ensure the very best but we run come rain or shine!
