United Downs Raceway - Sunday 18th October 2009

The last outing in Cornwall this year for BriSCA F2 Stock Cars and National Bangers, produced some fine race action, ably supported by another encouraging display by the Ministox.

2-Litre National Bangers - Cornish Championship

Just under 20 cars contested the Cornish Championship, which turned into quite a battle between 66 Dave Spooner and 383 Andre McLellan, after 55 James Ogborn had led from the drop of the green. Whilst 66 Spoons did manage to edge clear in the last couple of laps, there was a terriffic scrap for second, with 383 Tricky holding on from 55 Oggy, as 111 Ray Rowe finished fourth.
In the first of two Allcomers races, 131 Stephen Cock spun aside 452 Anthony Sleeman, to take the win.
The second Allcomers race brought a first National Banger victory for 99 David Spooner, and how fitting that it should have been at his home venue.
Four cars made it out for the DD, in which 112 Mike Simmonds and 776 Terry Senford were seen off by Tricky and 452 Lurch, who then met head-on, with Lurch reversing off to seal the victory, and end what was a reasonable showing.
Simmondz scooped the Wreck of the Day trophy and Turbulence voted Overall Trier, whilst Best Presented awards went to 131 Cocksey, 47 Marcus A'Lee and 45 Antony Croshaw - the 45 Lips car looking particularly smart.

BriSCA F2 Stock Cars

The Rowe brothers enjoyed an afternoon to remember. 605 Liam Rowe won the White & Yellow grade final, when he pipped 891 Darren Wade on the final bend. The win was Liam Rowe's first of his career.
Heat two went to 76 Chris Rowe (no relation), whilst Liam's brother, 105 Ross Rowe, took heat three.
Ross Rowe then scored a commanding win in the Old Motor Cycle Club Trophy final, and having led 15 laps, he scooped £375 of extra prize money for his efforts. Ross Rowe thus took the All Saints series, booked a return to the star grade, and became the eighth different final winner in as many F2 meetings at St Day this season. 877 Eddie Darby was the runner-up and 315 Justin Fisher was third.
Fisher went one better in the GN, but although he hassled Liam Rowe over the closing stages, he could not unseat the youngster from first place, and Rowe duly collected his second win of the day.
As an additional bonus, Liam Rowe was also presented with the Plymouth Stock Car Association Driver of the Year award, as the region's most promising newcomer of 2009.

Ministox

Another impressive showing of youngsters made for some more fine racing from the Ministox in which 938 Ashley Rice and 979 Paul Moss were the heat winners.
Rice won again in the final, when he caught 953 Sam Matthews in the closing stages, and 961 Gary Sillifant completed the top three, as the race was halted early, after an electrical fire in the 991 Ryan Hoskin car.
