PREVIEW: MAY BANK HOLIDAY 5 & 6th May 2024 - 1PM


Sunday 5th May


The nudge and spin legends of the Rookies, break their cover for Season 24, and an impressive amount of bookings are here for the day. Leading the way is points champion HArrison Staples (2), who swept to title last year. West of England Champion Chris Neville (109). The next generation of Ryan Brooks (210), Tom Gumbleton (198) and Ieuan Preston (149) continue their graduation from the juniors. They will be joined by a guest appearance from Ricky Beasley (67) and Big Mac (440). There are welcome returns for Chrissy Jeanes (113) and fresh from her suspension the artist Abbie Deeprose (962) is back!


The start of the year for the youngsters has been nothing short of brilliant, with the new broom turning up in good number. In his farewell appearance Taylor Mitchell (66) took a win. Freddie Moore (301) also took a win and Charlie Cocks (162) took the consolation. However, fresh from being injured at school - I tell you its dangerous kids, Tristan Heathcote (429) took top honours and finally had some good luck for a change.


The tin toppers are back from the busy Easter double header, and it is apparent that we are in for another year of wins spread far and wide.
Wins for Pete Jennings (68), Stuart Simpson (29) and Brad Hunt. Former track champion, Dan Latimer (720) took a double over the weekend.
Finals went the way of Harry Melville (226) and Rich James (112) who took full advantage of boring Jane James (35)'s car to banish the bad luck he had in the Saloon Stock Cars.

Monday 6th May


A busy but brutal opening meeting for Europe's Premier open wheeled motorsport, saw plenty of cars, plenty of action. It's also the first grading period of the season. Leading the changes was double winner last time and all round sensation Kasey Jones (286), who has won of all grades - will we see him acclimatize to superstar in a similar fashion?

Jake Ralfs (128)'s early season form has seen him upgraded to yellow.

Mendips regular Harry Neath-Rogers (141) is up to blue and going the other way, track champion Paul Moss (979) is down to blue. Regular visitors the Smith sisters Jess (390) and Rebecca (931) both drop to yellow, which could be fairly well populated, It's also the first round of the Mike Cocks sponsered "Mighty Whites"

Series for the lowest graders an opportunity to get a race win. Jamie Cocks (856) drops to white just in time. Prizes galore over the season for the white tops


A trip to the Old Skool, and our old skool doesn't have crumbling concrete problems! Wrecking wasn't the name of the game and gradually got bigger as the day goes on. Reigning World Champion RIckie Beasley (67) heads the entry for big bangers. WIth it being Old Skool we have lots of Devon based drivers, including the James' Lib (252), Buddy (262) and Johnnie (362) and ex F2 drivers Jamie Beere (954) and Jay Tomkins (290) Steve Hunt (282) has booked in - Steve will be probably the only driver on track who raced in the 1980's and has done the lot - so a knockabout session in the bangers will be rolling back the years


The nuttiest of nutters convene in a wobble as the world's favourite three wheelers take to the track. A Load of Loaders will finally take to the track, with Macca Pacca (14) and finally Immy (669) (if we can actually get her to our track for a change!) joining the regulars Aaron Loader (362) and Toby (36) who barbecued Charlie last time out. Last time out, there were wins for Sid Harrison(510), Matt Capel (518) and points champion Tom Weeks (100)

So what makes it crazy? Thats down to the powers that be! Wrong way round, slaloms, we just don't know until the day!

Stat facts Current Roll count - 19 - Roll leader - Jack McDade (87) with 6 rolls!
