Stuart had an amazing meeting at Birmingham starting off with a win in his first heat! Holding off the likes of Lee Fairhurst and Danny Wainman to take the win. Final time, with a few changes made, Stuart again was lightning fast coming through the star graders and working his way up into the lead. Eventually winning the race. The team was especially made up with this as winning any race is good but winning a “final” is even better. Grand National time Stuart had a big task ahead as he started from the front of the grid a lap […]

Not a bad first meeting back, Stuart won heat 1, didn’t go out in next one as a problem with the battery. looking good for the win in the final but got a flat and that cost him the win!

Wether was awful but that didn’t stop little Stu having fun in the puddles! Stuarts next meeting will be the Birmingham/ Hednesford weekender.
