The calm before the storm , this years National championship is not far off starters orders ; with 17 cars booked in it will be a close fast paced two heats ; the points accumulated will give grid positions for the big race .
There is no great favourite for this one and the field of drivers are all quite capable of taking victory at Ipswich.
555 Gavin Taber would like to take victory and add to his success in the formula , as would 121 Charlie Schembri and the other 15 drivers who will take part . Graham Boyd will push the A40 to its limits and if he gets in front will drive a hard tight line.
Anthony Morgan 19 our Irish entry and current Irish points champion has made many changes to his Mk2 Escort and could do with a better run of look than he had last year. Hopes were that 976 Clive Richardson would join him but a late cancellation means he won’t make it this year .
Craig Boyd won’t be here to add to his title collection for this year as he is away with work and would have been hot favourite .
Scottish hopes went out when 12 Trevor Harris received a hand injury earlier in the week , we wish him a fast recovery ; defending champion Kenny Purdie will be racing his National hot rod instead on home turf.
Who ever takes this years crown will have deserved to have taken victory , may the best man win !
