MOTA WORLD DELIVERY DRIVERS GRAND PRIX.
A non contact race over the ramp allowed the drivers to dial in their Vans prior to the main event, the Mota World sponsored Demolition Derby. The first ramp race was won by #18 Grant Crellin. #7 Kevin Hooper in the Pat a Cake Bakery van dealt the first hit of the Demolition Derby. #66 Dan Moore driving a Transit decided to turn around and drive in the opposite direction, Grant Crellin hit Moore’s Transit head on destroying the front of each van. The event was stopped so that the drivers could be removed to safety. The Hogg Rescue Ambulance received a large applause when it too drove over the ramp on its way off the track. On the restart #188 Ashley Harrison struggled over the ramp his LDV Van was nose heavy, he then became stuck on the safety fence. #26 Jason Collister and Kevin Hooper rammed one another until Kevin’s van ground to a halt. That left Jason Collister the only van mobile, but sportingly he pushed Harrison off the fence so that the event could continue. These two drivers put on a good show, each inflicting blows to one another. Ashley Harrisons ex Post Office van gradually disintegrated much to the crowd’s amusement. Finally Ashley’s LDV stopped and Jason Collister was awarded the Mota World Delivery Drivers Grand Prix trophy and prize money.
