The BriSCA F2 Stock Cars will make their second Smeatharpe appearance of the new season, with drivers eager to lay their hands on the iconic Remembering Rog Trophy - a steering wheel mounted on a wooden plinth in deference to the much-missed former racer, Roger Willcock.
315 Justin Fisher was the winner of the trophy in 2016, and had it re-presented to him at the F2 Ben Fund Awards Night in Coventry, in January 2017.
Local racer 398 Ian England is set to make his BriSCA F2 debut.
Superstar graded 38 Dave Polley plans another westcountry visit; which will be his last in the region before he defends the English Open Championship at Stoke on Easter Saturday 15 April; the first major title event of the BriSCA F2 season.

Saloon Stock Cars

The Saloon Stock Cars will make their second Smeatharpe appearance of 2017.
English Champion 217 Sid Madgwick tops the entry.  The young racer scooped the English title at Kings Lynn in dramatic fashion in April 2016, and will defend the cross of St George at the same venue on 29 April.
28 Ian Govier, 276 Ben King and the father and son pairing of 199 Phil Powell and 799 Joe Powell will head the local entry.
619 Ross Thomas will make his first westcountry appearance of the season.
The latest driver to take up the option of the Saloon Stock Car Hire Car is Bangers young gun 760 Joey Reynolds.
Following his sensational hat-trick of victories at Smeatharpe on 12 March, it is little surprise that 157 Max Stott plans a return visit from East Anglia.
Third home in that final, was 591 Aaron Morris, and he is due back at Smeatharpe again, whilst 221 Shaun Blakemore from the west Midlands aims to race a Saloon Stock Car at Smeatharpe for the first time.
Further visiting interest will see UK Champion 158 Shane Davies make the long trek west from his south east base.
