Tonights meeting was kindly sponsored by Mann Construction LTD
Monday night’s stockcar meeting was sponsored by Mann Construction LTD and it certainly was one of the wettest so far this year, but that didn’t stop the crowd coming along and supporting their favourite drivers.
Starting off proceedings was the 1st Choice Windows Ministox. In race 1 Ted Davis dominated the lead over championship leader Harry Watson until lap 5 when Watson saw the gap and left Davis to soak up the wet spray from his car. Close racing between the rest of the field saw the positions changing between Jack Dobson, Pemma Nissanka, and Josh Watson throughout the race. New comer Jake Hooper drove exceptionally well holding a good steady line around the very wet track. Top 3 from Race 1 results were Harry, Ted and Jack. In Race 2 Nissanka got a good start but with Harry Watson hot on his tail he couldn’t hold him off for long. Contact between Davis and Dobson pushed Dobson wide leaving the door open for Ted to sneak through but there was no catching Harry who led the rest of the race with a comfortable lead. Results for Race 2 were Harry, Ted and Pemma. By the time Race 3 got underway the track was proving difficult. Ted was determined to claim a victory after taking the early lead from Jack. But Harry wasn’t going to give him an easy win. On the final lap Ted aquaplaned but managed to regain control quickly to take the final chequered flag of the night. The Mann Construction trophies were awarded to Harry Watson 1st, Ted Davis 2nd, Jack Dobson 3rd with Pemma Nissanka taking the Whites & Yellows award. All these young drivers drove very well in very testing conditions and especially our newest and youngest driver of 10yrs old Jake Hooper.
The Mann Construction F2’s only saw 3 cars out on track. 2017 Pepsi Open Championship winner Dougie Kinrade dominated every single race from start to finish leaving Dave Sutcliffe and Kev Hooper to follow his spray around the very soggy track. Results for the F2 races and the Mann Construction Trophies was awarded to Dougie Kinrade, Dave Sutcliffe and Kev Hooper.
The A & J Quality Butchers Bangers saw 7 cars out on track for Race 1. The field soon spread out and no one could seem to catch each other. Ste Collister was drifting around the track in his newly built Honda until lap 4 when he spun putting himself on the grass and unable to get the car going again putting him out for the rest of the meeting. Ashley Harrison was also battling with the wet and a spin from him brought out the waving yellows. James Griffiths took control and managed to lead all 3 races making it a hatrick of wins for him followed by Jason Collister and Steven Guest. The Mann Construction trophies went to James Griffiths 1st, Jason Collister 2nd and Steven Guest 3rd.
Onchan Raceway Poduction Rods saw some fantastic battles between Leonie Marchbank and Nick Ford for the top two positions whilst other great battles between Sarah Wass, Robert Hooper, Mike Craine and Paul Craine saw positions for 3rd place continually changing. Tina Quayle, India Cowin and Marie Craine did well to hold their positions throughout in very challenging conditions. Race 1 saw Leonie take the win over Nick with a change of position in Race 2 where Nick lead from start to finish manging to hold off the rest of the pack but in Race 3 Leonie got a taste of victory once again and drove like she owned that track. Overall results and the Mann Construction trophies were awarded to 1st Leonie Marchbank, 2nd Nick Ford and 3rd Rob Hooper with the well-deserved Victory Lane award going to Leonie.
Racing resumes Monday 21st August starting at 7.30pm.
