Results 4WD - 2WD

This was the third year that the Juniors have been held at Marston, and what made it so different from the other two occasions was the weather. I understand that it absolutely scythed it down in Yorkshire, but Wolverhampton was bathed in glorious sunshine - yeehah.

The racing is run in two age groups, under thirteen and under sixteen, (as of 1 January 2000) for 2WD buggies on Saturday and 4WD buggies on Sunday.

There is also a prize for the region with the most points from their top three drivers in each class. 

There was a full turnout of 120 drivers for the 2WD event and 80 drivers for 4WD on Sunday, with great racing on both days.

This was the last meeting ever to be held at the Marston track, as the land is to be use for industrial development. It was certainly a memorable note on which to end.



1. Chilterns Mid-South
2. Midlands West
3. North East




North East driver Luke Sanders was the star of the show in the under sixteen age group, with TQ's and wins in both 2WD and 4WD. Well Done, Luke.

Peter Newbould (caught here in the gloom of Saturday evening, the racing didn't finish until 7:00pm!) had a great day in U13 2WD. He ran in the "A" all day, but got pipped in the last round. Still managed to win the "B" final, though!

Emily Shields U13 2WD "C" final
