What a fantastic weekend's racing we have just had!

Polley and Lee, or is it Lee and Polley?

The Oval race meeting at the NEC was quite simply excellent. It ran like clockwork and while all of the racing was top quality I thought the historic section stole the show. The interview with Fred Parsons was fascinating and didn't the old stockcars look - and sound - the business?! Then I know the Barry Lee vs George Polley races brought back many memories of days gone by for many. I took some video at the meeting and Dave Smith has started to send through a few pictures so hopefully we should have a good gallery to enjoy. Here's a taster of Dave's pictures and as he points out conditions for good photography in that arena were not at all easy. If anyone reading this has any good pictures from the meeting please send them over!

The moral of this bonnet ... Don't count your chickens ...!!

Then on Sunday it was across to Hednesford for Civil War 5 and they finally did it, the South won! For the first half of the meeting it was nip and tuck with both teams getting their nose in front but come final time the South really showed excellent teamwork and strategy and saw off the North in superb style! And then what happens? Another streaker! Pictures to follow.

So two superb events so congratulations are due to all concerned for making both so enjoyable.
