Last Updated: 11/06/2019 14:47
This Sunday 16th June very much is ‘Thunder in the Hill’s’ as the BriSCA power Show returns to the amphitheatre of oval racing, Hednesford Hills Raceway. Europes’ high Octane short oval race divisions on the ultimate stage that is Hednesford!
The first of two events at Hednesford for the BriSCA Formula One Stock Cars has been eagerly awaited since the 2019 calendar was published in the New Year and this event comes no bigger than a trio of British Championships on offer and the British in status comes only second to the World and one the drivers are very much up for with a generous prize purse combined with the accolade of being at the pinnacle of such a prestigious title and race.
At the time of writing, a healthy entry of the Big League are entered, with a unique qualification system delivering big grids and building up to a climax of the final race of the day, the 2019 BSCDA BRITISH DRIVERS CHAMPIONSHIP.
The ultra fast contours of the Hednesford Bowl are not for the feint hearted and this is a 4 hour thrills show of pulsating horsepower action.
Whilst last years winner at Belle Vue, Stuart Smith Junior is now sadly in retirement, 2019 is relatively wide open with all the top drivers entered, most of whom are well at home at the superfast oval.
On recent form, all eyes will be on Tom Harris who has quite literally been invincible through April and May albeit last weekends tarmac double saw him off the boil, However, Matt Newson has had an astonishing first quarter and this is a title he wants to win having come so close last year. However, with big grids and the likes of former Championship winners Nigel Green, Frankie and Danny Wainman, Dan Johnson, Paul Hines, Jamie Davidson and a man on huge form Will Hunter, it looks almost certain this will be fast and furious and wide open.
Joining the Big League, sharing this prestigious programme are the National Ministox, providing stars for the future since 1983!
Aged from just 11 to 16, the race division seems to get better every single year and 2019 has been the hottest yet. Whilst the formula continues to enjoy an insurgence of new talent, at the leading edge and likely to be chasing for the podium are a whole crop of drivers at their peak led by current World Champion Jack Witts but then add in names such as Rebecca Smith [ daughter of Andy ] and the Evans brothers as part of a mid thirties entry, expect the sparks to fly. Never before has the rivalry been so intense!
Our third BRITISH CHAMPIONSHIP of the day welcomes the V8 Stock Cars back to the Hills. It’s been a transitionary year for this class and the man of the moment seems to be hot shot Matt Barnard, currently fourth in the points table although this formula tends to throw up some explosive surprises!
Where better to host such a tremendous trio of Championships than Hednesford ? The scene of some of the biggest title fight’s since the 1960’s and dramatic finishes. A well appointed oval set on the beautiful Cannock Chase with all weather Raceview Grandstands and panoramic viewing from the high levels of the grass banking providing a spectacular view over the raceway.
With ample trackside parking where you can view in comfort, licensed bars and a wide range of fast food outlets, this really is a power max motorsport spectacular for all the family!
