Bangor Mail - - Sport - Mo­tor­sport Foot­ball

THE fi­nal rounds of many sprint cham­pi­onships in­clud­ing the SBD Mo­tor­sport UK British Sprint Cham­pi­onship will take place at An­gle­sey Cir­cuit this week­end.

Adding va­ri­ety for com­peti­tors and spec­ta­tors, the event will run on the Na­tional Cir­cuit on Satur­day and the In­ter­na­tional Cir­cuit on Sun­day.

The cli­max to the sea­son will take place back where it started, at the An­gle­sey venue on Satur­day and Sun­day.

This an­nual showdown is or­gan­ised by the Long­ton and District Mo­tor Club and as well as com­peti­tors from their own North­ern Speed Cham­pi­onship, and Sprint Se­ries, there are en­tries from the Liver­pool Mo­tor Club Speed Cham­pi­onship, the Lo­tus 7 Speed Se­ries, West­field Sports Car Club Speed Se­ries – many of whom are also tak­ing part in the As­so­ci­a­tion of North Western Car Clubs Sprint Cham­pi­onship and The Bert Hadley Me­mo­rial Cham­pi­onship (Sun­day only).

The Top Twelve Run-Offs for fi­nal points in the British Sprint Cham­pi­onship will run on both days and are sure to be hotly con­tested.

The cur­rent cham­pi­onship leader, John Gra­ham (Gould GR55B) only has a sin­gle-point lead over se­cond placed Pe­ter Gould­ing (My­gale FF200) so com­pe­ti­tion will be fierce with both push­ing their cars to the limit to se­cure those all-im­por­tant cham­pi­onship points.

Third placed Nick Al­gar (DJ Fire­hawk) will be look­ing to re­duce his points deficit, but faces a chase from Matt Hil­liam (SBD Dal­lara FR3RB01) who will be keen to take the fi­nal step on the podium.

As well as be­ing able to spec­tate from the ex­cel­lent van­tage points around the most scenic cir­cuit in the UK, the spec­ta­tors are en­cour­aged to get up close to the cars and to meet the com­peti­tors in the pad­dock.
