Successful end of year Road Race Bonanza

 

The Auto 66 end of year meeting at Cadwell Park on 25th-26th October 2014 proved an overwhelming success.

The other big championship was the Lee Vernon’s Super Lightweight Championship which was won convincingly by James Cowton with 104 points from James Neesom with 57 points and Jamie Hamilton with 37 points. All the results for the Northern Clubman’s Championship and the Road and Track Championship can be found on the club’s webpage at www.auto66.com .

The meeting also included the hugely anticipated Sidecar Bonanza which proved to be a great success with full grids and very close, edge of your seat racing.

There were classes to cater for all with Vintage, Classic, Formula II and Formula I. During the weekend competitors were anxious to have the club’s confirmation on next year’s event which will definitely take place with another Sidecar Bonanza, building on this year’s success, at Cadwell Park on 24th-25th October 2015, which will also include the final rounds of the solo championships.

All the championship awards will be presented at the club’s annual dinner and awards evening on Saturday 17th January 2015 which is always a fantastic social and celebratory way to end the season and will take place at the Holiday Inn at York; again….further information on this can be found on the club website.

Cadwell Park’s 80th Anniversary

This event although being very late organised proved to be a tremendous success with queues of spectators waiting to get in when the gates opened, queues at the cafe and burger bar from 9am til 4pm and the paddock bursting at the seams which provided a tremendous atmosphere. Cadwell Park with the help of Peter Boast put together a tremendous display of classic machinery in the Paddock ,the Parade of Stars produced names from the past including Mark Phillips, Derek Chatterton, Roger Burnett, David Hailwood, Malc Wheeler, Danny McCloud, Guy Martin and his father Ian, Ian Simpson and John Cooper. Also joining the parade were John Reynolds, Steve Plater, Paul Cott, Lloyd Dickinson, Graham Rohdes, Alan Duffus, Tony Myers, Rex Butcher just to name a few. All in all a day to remember.

We must take the opportunity to apologise to the marshals who missed their lunch break due to the action packed program, this will be rectified at the October meeting (see marshals section).
