Hot Rod world-beater Maxwell to Hed­nes­ford

Motor Sport News - - Sporting Scene -

Na­tional Hot Rod World Fi­nal win­ner Adam Maxwell is re­turn­ing to the English points se­ries at Hed­nes­ford this week­end.

The County Antrim racer took part in the last meet­ing in Eng­land at Fox­hall Heath and came from the back of the grid to fin­ish in sec­ond place in the fi­nal.

He will re­turn on Sun­day for the fi­nal race be­fore the mid-sea­son break in the 2016-2017 cal­en­dar.

“I al­ways said af­ter I won that I would try to travel to as many events as pos­si­ble,” said Maxwell, who won a prize drive in South Africa as a re­sult of win­ning the World Fi­nal at Ip­swich in July. “I feel it is a good thing for the world cham­pion to do. It is im­por­tant to be an am­bas­sador for Hot Rod rac­ing and to be seen out there.”

As well as rac­ing at Hed­nes­ford, Maxwell will also take part in the Scot­tish se­ries at Lochgelly this Satur­day.
