Action at Angmering racetrack

A day of torrential rain and high winds could not curb the drivers at Angmering raceway (www.ovalraceclub.co.uk) on Sunday November 22nd as the drivers took to a track that had more in common with a pond than a racing circuit.

All of the formulas struggled in the harsh conditions, with the front wheel drive saloon rods being the best placed to deal with the rain lashed track. Dean Archer had a fantastic day's racing in the formula, narrowly missing a clean sweep of both heats and the final with two first places and one second.

Among the junior drivers 158, Lewy Richardson steered through the deluge to win the junior production class, with 180 Kieron Chappell, taking the top spot in the junior rods.

Despite all the rain one of the hot rods still managed to catch fire leading to the race being re-run with 306 Jack Morgan taking the final.

The rear wheel drive saloon rods and street stocks struggled dreadfully with the conditions but 724 Stephen Wright came through to win in the saloon rods with 587, Jim Stewart doing the same in the street stocks.

The production stocks saw wins for 212, Lee Potter in the senior and 595
