Saloon Stock Cars

24maysalb

Two forms of Saloon Stock Cars appear at the Norfolk Arena - 2L Stock Cars and 1300 Stock Cars.

2L STOCK CARS

If you asked a member of the general public what a Stock Car is, and to draw a sketch, they would most likely come up with a Saloon Stock Car. It comes of near 50 years of evolution when the traditional Stock Cars of the 1960’s started to turn into open-wheeled based specials, and yet there was still a large market for would be drivers to race a modified, ironed up Saloon. Thus, in 1968 the formula began at the original Aldershot Stadium and spread its wings rapidly from there.

Today there are over 150 active drivers across tracks that encompass all four corners of the United Kingdom, with its traditional mainstay regions of East Anglia, Scotland and the South West of England, with links and affiliations in Northern Ireland and mainland Europe.

Saloon Stock Car racing could be described as gladiatorial and not for the feint hearted, these are fast cars that produce some of the most spectacular race action, as drivers push, shove and hit one another out of the way, in pursuit of glory. As many as 40 of these cars on a small 1/4 mile tarmac or shale tracks leads to very exciting racing, sometimes with incidents that are to be seen to be believed.

Saloon Stock Cars are based around the following cars: Ford Mondeo, Ford Sierra or Saphire or Vauxhall Vectra. Constructed around a steel space-frame chassis within the confines of the original chassis and body construction of the car. It is front-engined and rear wheel drive, powered by either a Ford 2 litre Pinto or Ford 2 litre Zetec engine and control Yokohama tyres.

Race it. Unlike circuit racing, Stock Car racing typically sees the stars of the sport start at the rear of the grid; to win they have to force themselves through the grids of cars with use of the front bumper being allowed and encouraged. Whilst it is an extreme contact sport, out and out wrecking tactics are not allowed.

 

570 mb



There are no entry fees for the race meetings. The licence fee for the year is £110. With a range of approximately 80 meetings per season, drivers can choose to race as little or as often as they wish; either locally, or further afield cross the UK mainland, Northern Ireland and Europe. Running costs are subject to damage but roughly £200 per event.

The drivers are some of the most fearless and talented on the ovals, circulating centimetres apart at full race speed with pushing and shoving front and back and thousands of a second in which to make a decision, go by or push on through! There is never a dull race in 1300 Stock Cars and you just never know the outcome of races!
