First Race Meeting of the Season Velocity Racing
23 April 2014

It's the first race meeting of the season, tensions are high and the excitement has been building. It’s been 3 months since the end of last season but the drivers are keen and raring to go.

The first race proved very eventful with last years Rookie Rod Champion Caroline Capel parking her car into a tyre wall with the race only half done. Jaz Lawrence already away and clear took the race closely followed by Paul Drewett. This pattern followed throughout the six races held this evening for the Rookies with Jaz showing some great style in holding off both Paul Drewett and Danny Harper throughout the evening and deservedly winning all six races. I fear she may suffer at the hands of the handicapper for this very impressive start. Nigel Burchill and Samantha York will surely improve and I’m sure there will be much more to come from reigning champion Caroline as the season progresses.
The Lightning Rods also proved very eventful with the first race having to be re-started due to a fairly serious three car pile up directly under the starter’s gantry. This meant Alex’s car was sadly finished for the evening, but with a change of underwear for the starter Paul Blake and some impromptu repairs carried out on the other two cars, the precision instrument of choice being the sledge hammer, they were re-started. With current Lightning Rod Champion Nick Kelly and Brent Savage competing fiercely throughout, sliding side by side around the turns and with some extreme driving skills being shown. Nick Kelly wins the first followed home by Brent Savage. This theme followed throughout the night with Nick Kelly carrying on from where he left off last year showing some great early season form and winning all of the races in his category. Although it looks as if he will have some serious competition from Brent Savage who returns this year after recovering from injury.
So with a new season now up and running and with Jaz Lawrence and Nick Kelly in dominant form the gauntlet has clearly been thrown down for all the drivers to show if they are up for the challenge. All in all a great and exciting evening of racing was enjoyed by a large crowd who I’m sure will be back for more of the same at the next meeting on 12th April .
