Well its been a great days racing here, everything running smoothly and we have thankfully been incident free today, racing finishing with plenty of time to spare before the curfew time. Probably the standout of today was Tim Blakemore who recorded a stunning 7.24 in the semi final of funnybike to advance to the final before losing out to Ken Cooper, Ken completing the second leg of what turned into a Team Cooperised treble as Tony Clark won Super Street Bike and the very next pair after Ken triumphed in Funny bike, Helen Curran took a very close win in Comp bike to complete the treble.

On four wheels the Custom Car field was somewhat reduced in size after the cruise with 5 cars failing to make it and thus being ruled out of eliminations. The final finished up as a repeat of Super Series 1 as John Sleath took the win over a red lighting Steve Pateman. Ian Hook and the Fat Boys look like they have managed to put all there recent problems behind them as they netted a 9.30 in an open practice session at the end of the day and its surely only a matter of time before they figure more prominently in Custom Car itself.


Good morning and welcome back to Shakespeare County Raceway for day 2 of Super Series 2. Hopefully yesterday's problems are well and truely behind us. Again a huge thank you to Stephen Talbot for all his assistance, Stephen passing up on going out for a meal to help out. Unfortunately once the laptop problem was resolved and the report written another problem presented itself in the form of a dead phone line. Apologies for the lack of any reporting yesterday but it was a bit out of our control. Yesterdays report is now available and results and a brief summary of todays action will be available at the close of play today. Due to the technical problems that have been experianced it is not going to bee possible to upload the pictures from Super Series 2 until later on Sunday evening but they will be posted as soon as possible.

Still enough of that, lets hope that we have a good days racing today without any more on track incidents. The sun is beating down here and there is certainly going to be plenty of heat in the track which should lead to lots of good racing. Steve Pateman reset the Custom Car speed record again yesterday with his 168mph blast and with the warm track there could well be more to come from the Custom Car competitors. One man who ran off his normal pace yesterday was reigning Super Street Bike Graham Dance. Graham ran a best of 8.90 yesterday which was only good for the no.6 qualifying spot, but thats an improvement on last time out when he only made it in as 1st alternate. "I've never been so happy to run so slow" said Graham. He also revealed that he has had to change motors after nipping spark plugs and smudging a piston in the motor in the bike so he has put his bigger 1425cc motor back in along with the "settings from the 8.60 pass at the Thunderball but with bigger nitrous jets Its either going to go or blow!"

Well thats about all theres time for at the moment due to trying to catch up with yesterdays report. Don't forget that Eurodragster is also reporting from the RWYB at Santa Pod where it is expected to see some of the cars from yesterdays Pro Test session on track again so join Tog throughout the day for reports from there and come back here for the highlights and results from Super Series 2 at the close of play.
