0025

On the 29th October 2017 Marjorie Whitehead died peacfully in her sleep.

Pictured above is Marje (or as several knew her as “Madge) and her husband Jack (who sadly passed away in 2015), along with their niece Linda and son John. Both Jack and Marje always had a smile on their faces and were always found laughing about something. The pair lived life to the full. Both Jack and Marje were a huge part of Onchan Raceway for many years. Marje will be sadly missed by all.

Eventually finishing a creditable 15th at the end of the 25 lap race. Back at Onchan. #545 Paul Fearn was presented with the Roy Ogilby shield which was contested earlier in the season, and ex racer Rick Sutcliffe received the Ronnie Caulfield shield which his son David #503 had won being the top point scorer over the first 6 meetings of the season.

#12 Sam Reeded, #52 James Griffiths and ultimately #9 Spud Collister each led Bangers race 1, Spud Collister winning ahead of James Griffiths and #146 Scott Farthing.

EXIT STRATEGY DEMOLITION DERBY.

 

21622020_10159211951100368_948035313_n

The large crowd had been entertained throughout the afternoon by the various classes, but were all there to watch the motorised mayhem of the EXIT STRATEGY  END OF SEASON DEMOLITION DERBY. 12 cars started, featuring cars of all shapes and sizes, with #334 Jamie Dale trying her luck in a Ford Ka ! As soon as the green flag fell the chaos began, large hits were felt all around the raceway, the race had to be stopped to attend to Jamie Dale, once she was safely out of her car the chaos resumed, #20 Jack Sayle in a Jaguar S type had a heavy impact ripping of the front wheel. Action continued, as cars traded blows, a head on between James Griffiths and Paul Fearn, ended James Griffiths hopes. The cars were gradually eliminated with the last two runners being Steven Guest and Paul Fearn, Steven’s BMW was only just moving, so Fearn continually rammed the BMW to claim the victory and Exit Strategy prize money.

 

 

During the afternoon lots of trophies were presented by the various sponsors a list of which are shown below.

Lastly a big thankyou goes out to all Drivers, Mechanics, Staff, Medics and Sponsors for another enjoyable seasons racing.

The 2018 season will begin Sunday 29th April 2pm.
