BriSCA F1 Stock Cars ANGLO-DUTCH GOLDEN HELMET MEETING – RESTORE THE FAITH! It is business as usual at Coventry MCM Stadium, since England were unceremoniously dumped out of the Football World Cup competition in South Africa.
For BriSCA F1 Stock Car fans, all is not lost – The Anglo-Dutch Golden Helmet contest comes to Brandon on Saturday 3 July, starting at 7pm.
Both UK and Dutch drivers have raced season long to qualify for this one-off feature race and information received from Holland’s Emmen Promoter Minne Meyer really whets the appetite for an explosive start to the F1 proceedings.
Dutch H17 Bowe Arjen Hiddinga is described as driving like Bobby Burns, which for UK fans will be a treat of pedal to the metal; if he is half as good as the ex-F1 superstar, then the enormous trophy – currently held by Stuart Smith Jnr – could be winging it’s way back to Holland with the race winner’s share of the £2,000 prize fund.
Talking of Stuart Smith, suprisingly he has not qualified for this year’s race. As defending Golden Helmet trophy holder, however, he will be seeded onto the grid. Stuart’s luck needs to change – will this be his night? It would certainly be a popular result if the National Points Champion could pull it off.
Once the Golden Helmet race is run, it is back to the increasingly popular Whites and Yellows race, followed by two more heats, consolation, final and Grand National.
Thirty-five C (white) and B (yellow) grade drivers have booked in for their heat, which includes one Dutch driver: H62 Camiel De Dekker.
Every heat has an inter-continental flavour, with Dutch drivers across the grades competing in the remainder of the Golden Helmet meeting.
Full grids for seven BriSCA F1 stock car races are supported by the Rebel Racers. The July Golden Helmet meeting at Coventry’s mobilecashmate.com Stadium will – if nothing else – be a lively affair. Come on England! Scotland, Ireland, Wales and Holland; in fact, all nationalities are welcome. Restore the faith! Start time for F1s 7pm. Admission: Adult £17; Concession £12; Child 11-15 £5 Under 11 FREE. Oval Racing continues at Coventry on Sunday 4 July, with Street Bangers 4-a-Side Team Racing, National Mini Stox for drivers aged 10-16 years and the fast and furious UK Modifieds.
