MESSAGE FROM RACE DIRECTOR - PAUL GERRARD
With just one meeting left in the 2014 Oval Track Legends season, it's that time when we need to look forward to 2015.
We have already been able to plan a really good set of dates for 2015, albeit these are only in DRAFT form at the moment. Take a look below at the proposed dates, but please understand that these are PROVISIONAL amd not set in stone.
We are also planning a 'review' meeting to discuss the positives and negatives of the 2014 season and also to look at any proposals that may be forthcoming for 2015.
We clearly cannot invite all drivers and any interested parties - it doesn't work with too many people involved - we are really looking for 8 - 10 people, so we would like to ask for people to be proposed to attend the meeting. Hopefully we will get around the required number, but, if we do have too many people nominated, then we will ask drivers to take part in a vote on the nominees.
Ideally we would like a cross sectio of drivers, all of which need to be able to represent the formula and be part of taking Oval Track Legends forward in 2015.
The meeting will take place during week commencing 10th November in the evening at PR1MO International Raceway Northampton, as this is the more central place for most people. We will confirm the exact date and time nearer the date.
So, we would like you to send your proposed attendees to Paul@incarace.co.uk, but we also need you to confirm that they are happy to attend - there is no point is proposing someone that is not prepared to come to the meeting.
In addition, if you have any items for the meeting agenda, then please send these too, with details of the item.
See below to download the DRAFT 2015 Fixture List...
If you have any comments regarding the proposed fixtres, then please let us know.
Thank you for your help - I look forward to receiving the nominations.
Paul Gerrard
RACE DIRECTOR

SPECIAL THANKS!

Sean Smith #21 would like to extend his gratitude, via the website, to Steve Jay of Southern Tile & Ceramics for the generous £200 prize money given after winning the South of England Championship Shield, a fantastic award sponsored by Steve since 2010 which was held over three rounds this year (Aldershot x 2 meetings and Eastbourne x 1).
It was only later that Sean was aware of the amount and was very pleased!  At that point he was unable to find Steve and asked that he be thanked publically.
Once again, many thanks to Steve Jay from OVAL TRACK LEGENDS #21 Sean Smith

NEWS FROM BIRMINGHAM WHEELS
SATURDAY 8th NOVEMBER
THE FINAL COUNTDOWN!
The 2014 season finally came to a close on
Saturday night.  It was the end of what has
been a fantastic season!  There were TWO
Championship deciders on the night which
both went down to the wire.
Martin Heath #66 remained supreme and
retained the National Points Championship.
Miles Rudman #19 probably needed to finish
at least 4 places above Martin in the Feature
Final to take the title.  He chewed away at
keeping tabs with Martin and stayed ahead of
him in the two heats but made one mistake in
the final.  He spun out while finally getting the inside line on Martin.  His hopes were dashed but it was a valiant effort.
CONGRATULATIONS TO MARTIN HEATH ON WINNING THE 2014 NATIONAL POINTS CHAMPIONSHIP FOR THE SECOND SUCCESSIVE YEAR!

It was already decided for Sean Smith #21 as he headed off for The Final Countdown last night at Birmingham Wheels that he had clinched the 2014 Rookie Championship title. None the less, he has had a remarkable first year in Legends. When the final National Points are added he will also feature high in the final points chart, he won the Open Scottish Championship in August and also the South of England Championship Shield which took place over 3 meetings this year
CONGRATULATIONS TO SEAN SMITH ON WINNING THE 2014 ROOKIE CHAMPIONSHIP!

With all the above going on during the meeting at Birmingham Wheels, with many a title to be decided there was still a space to see who would win the Golden Helmet Award.
A 30 lap thriller unfolded and Richard Poulter #98 stole the show from a 14th place start to win the highly sought after award.
Many of the opposition spun on the greasy track conditions and Richie kept his cool to win the feature final and take home The Golden Helmet Award for 2014.
CONGRATULATIONS RICHARD POULTER ON WINNING THE 2014 GOLDEN HELMET AWARD!

Last night at Birmingham Wheels, while the National Points Championship was going down to the wire, so was the Top 1200cc Championsip.  It was a two horse race between Aaron Lee #272 defender of the title and Trevor Sloggett #73. They went into the meeting just 6 points apart, Aaron being slightly ahead. After heat one Aaron went 46 points ahead but took a downturn in heat two when he retired for his top oiler nut coming undone and a DNF. Trevor finished for 30 points (20 over Aaron). The gap as they went into the final was still only 26 points, so Aaron had edged ahead. He finished one place in front of Trevor to retain the title for a successive second year!
CONGRATULATIONS TO AARON LEE ON WINNING THE 2014 1200cc CHAMPIONSHIP FOR THE SECOND SUCCESSIVE YEAR!
