A special thanks must go to the track promoters and owners and all involved in putting on these meetings and for the suport in 2013, Thanks to all Mascar & Driver 2013 sponsors again for your backing through the season and not forgetting our partners family and suporters / fans for turning out and suporting your drivers a great year with worthy winners,

Thanks All for a great season of action and we will be back bigger faster and better with true Nascar style racing here in the UK in 2014.
Birmingham Wheels Preview – 02/11/2013
Saturday night signals the end of the MASCAR season, unlike some forms of motorsport where the final race meeting of the year tends to be a ‘dead rubber’ with the championship winner(s) already settled, the MASCAR drivers find themselves with plenty to race for with championship honours and podium places still up for grabs. That coupled with the I-Factor Championship which will go to the winner of the final race on the night should lead to an exciting and action packed evening’s entertainment.
#96 Aaron Cooke will go into Saturday night as firm favourite to take the MASCAR overall championship and with it, the right to wear the #01 during the 2014 season. The crown in fact could be his by the end of the first race of the evening if things were to go his way, #65 Mark Carnwell will be going all-out to ensure this doesn’t happen though, he needs an incredible night of results and a large slice of luck, but as avid followers will know anything can happen in oval racing!
Two of the other major titles to be decided on the night will be the British Championship, which is determined by the points scored over the course of the season during the meeting ‘finals’ and the Birmingham Wheels 400 which falls to the highest points scorer of the Birmingham rounds throughout the year. Unsurprisingly the #96 of Cooke features strongly in both points charts with his lead in the ‘British’ appearing unassailable as his closest rival #25 Robin Bath isn’t booked in for the meeting and the gap back to 3rd is just a little too far for the chasing #46 of Stewart Simmonds, a late booking is still possible though so the Cooke team won’t be counting their chickens just yet!
#07 Nathan Nicholls leads the Birmingham Wheels 400 and has proven himself as a real track specialist, proof of which came during the last meeting where he managed to win heat 2 sensationally having started with a half lap handicap!
Both Anthony Rogers #08 and Stewart Simmonds #46 have already wrapped up championships going into the final round after impressive seasons with the Semi Pro and Rookie championships heading their way respectively. Both could feature at the sharp end of proceedings during the evening.
The I Factor Championship will be a fitting way to end the season with everybody keen to lay their hands on the title #96 Aaron Cooke will be defending. Plenty have shown good form and pace recently and the conditions could play a pivotal role, the forecast at this early stage is for rain which is unfamiliar territory for the MASCAR drivers who have competed in a completely dry 2013 campaign so far. A racing wet tyre specifically designed for the MASCARS will ensure that the pace or action doesn’t drop off at all - even if the weather does.
Finally the MASCAR series welcomes a new driver to the grid on Saturday evening in the shape of #42 Andy Williams who will be making his debut in the ex #49 of Dean Nixon. Andy joins the series with a wealth of racing experience and is bound to be an excellent addition to the sport. We wish both Andy and the other drivers competing the very best of luck on Saturday evening.

Conformation of New Driver
Just like to welcome Steve Tooley to the series on a full time basis Steve who has used our hire car several times this year has just purchased the Old number #3 car and will be now running under the #03 for his 2014 title challenge we welcome Steve and Family to the series and wish him all the best in his future venture,
On a sad note we see the #49 of Dean Nixon who has recently sold his car and will be taking time out with his family we also wish Dean all the best after several years racing with us we hope to see Dean again in the future and wish him the best.
After 10 years out of racing in various formulas the #08 Rogers has his first top podium and win and does it in style winning the final and meeting overall. He has also confirmed himself as the the Semi- Pro champion for 2013 (777 points clear of closest rival) congratulations to Ant who has worked his way up to be a future top championship contender - further details to be published shortly on the Meeting with some in car action.
Carnwell Takes Southern Title
After a long wait and an independant enquiry surrounding an on track incident, we can now confirm #65 Mark Carnwell as our new 2013 Southern Champion. Carnwell who has taken 3 out of 6 Championships is still within reach of the Prestigious title which will be decided at Birmingham Wheels in November. Congratulations to Mark who has battled all year to win these prestigious titles more details to follow shortly via Race reports.
Simmonds Secures Rookie Title
Congratulations to Stewart Simmons #46 who has now secured the 2013 rookie title in his first year of racing and still has the chance to take the third place step in the main championship. Stuart who brought the ex#17 car has seen his consistancy pay off and with more up for grabs yet he could still be in the running for more silver ware in the final round.
More to Play for
With the final round coming up in November we still have the Birmingham Wheels championship up for grabs with a four way fight between #07 Nicholls, Championship leader #96 Cooke, #52 of first year Lamb and our lady racer #11 Juli Stanford with less than 200 points covering 4 drivers this should be interesting and not forgetting the Incarace Title of I Factor Champion which is confirmed from the final winner at this meeting with defending champion Cooke still in the running to defend his 2012 title this is one not to be missed and this round will also see our Mascar 2013 overall Champion crowned along with the track championship title of Birmingham Wheels 400 winner.
Finally our British Championship title which is taken from the results of finals only through the year at selected meetings with only 60 points between the top 2 and 110 up for grabs but with the second place contender missing from the last round due to family commitments it looks as though Cooke has secured this prestigious title for 2013.This again will be confirmed at the last round of the season in November see you all track side.
Details on where to find information on MASCAR's newest recruit can now be found on the NEWS page.
Birmingham Wheels Preview – 05/10/2013
Saturday see’s a return to the second city for the MASCAR driver’s penultimate round of the 2013 Championship.
At one point the championship appeared a certainty for young Croxley Green based driver Aaron Cooke #96 however thanks to a sensational run during the past 4 or 5 meetings, Liverpool’s Mark Carnwell #65 has slashed Cooke’s sizeable lead and finds himself in prime position for championship honours should Cooke slip up during the next two meetings.
Slightly further down the fight for 3rd place is equally as fierce, Wickwar’s Robin Bath #25 is currently in the box-seat in this battle and is only a handful of points behind second placed Carnwell, a family function will keep Bath away from the last meeting of the year so realistically the final place on the championship rostrum has to be his overall aim. Stewart Simmonds #46 Karl Baker #21 and Juli Stanford #11 are all in with a chance of snatching 3rd place honours still, and will undoubtedly be charging hard to narrow the deficit to Bath on Saturday night.
Nathan Nicholls #07 currently leads the Birmingham Wheels 400 Championship after a number of wins at the midlands based venue this year, this particular championship is also finely balanced with Cooke #96 and Martin Lamb #52 proving to be Nicholls closest rivals.
Points from the final race of the night count towards the British Championship - Cooke, Bath, Ian Kerry, and Simmonds have all scored consistently over the season to be in with a shout of wearing the black and white chequered roof next year.
With so much at stake this really is a meeting not to miss.
Make sure you arrive early at the venue and visit the pits to size up the MASCAR’s, car’s are still available ready for the 2014 season and all of the drivers will be more than happy to chat and talk you through some of the finer details within this fantastic series.
The two day excursion north of the border proved to be another absolute success and everybody associated with MASCAR racing would like to extend their thanks to the team up at GMP who hosted such a fantastic weekend. The drivers and their crew’s couldn’t have been made to feel more welcome and the talk amongst the drivers well before the weekend had even ended, centred around plans for a repeat trip next year.
Feedback received from fans via twitter and facebook suggest that the racing provided by the MASCAR drivers went down a storm and interest in the cars and the series out in the pits suggested we had certainly captured the local’s attention!
Special thanks must go to Keith at GMP who provided the MASCAR series and their teams the opportunity to race at the same event as the prestigious Stock Rod World Championship, Keith is a massive supporter of the MASCAR series and we hope the entertainment provided over the 2 day event repaid the faith shown in the series.

Carnwell Does the Double
The #65 of Mark Carnwell takes his second confirmed Mascar Championship title! The international title and also the tracks Scottish title which will entitle him to run the Scottish flag over his roof for 2014, after consecutive top place finishes at both Cowdenbeath and Knock hill, the#65 confirmed his second Mascar Championship title and by winning the final at Knockhill confirmed him as the first Scottish tracks Champion, and he will now move on to chase down the top points honours which is currently led by the #96 youngster Aaron Cooke with only 200 points dividing the top two and over 600 point still up for grabs there is still everything to fight for over the last two rounds. With Rogers in his #08 Monte Carlo more or less securing the Semi Pro Title and just needing to finish the last two rounds to take the secondary Championship title and his first major title within the Mascar series. The British Championship is now a three horse race with #96 of Cooke and #25 of Bath the main contenders but the #48 of Kerry with an ouside chance if the others were to faulter, The Southern Championship is outstanding an ORCi enquiry , the result will be confirmed shortly and could still effect the top three of the 2013 Championship and confirm our Southern Championship winner, further race reports and details of the last two meetings along with video will be published on race reports shortly with all winners and full details on how the Titles were confirmed.

Weekend Preview 07/09/2013-08/09/2013
The 2013 MASCAR Championships on offer are all beginning to gather momentum as we approach the season’s conclusion. The MASCAR teams make the long trek north to Scotland next weekend to compete in a two day oval racing spectacular at the Cowdenbeath and Knockhill venue’s, driver’s can score points towards as many as FIVE (International, Pro, British, Semi-Pro, Rookie) separate championships over the weekend, meaning that the racing on offer will be fast, competitive and pivotal to those all important championship standings.
The MASCAR drivers haven’t failed to impress this season and have earnt rave reviews by both fans and officials alike. The MASCAR Series is looking forward to showcasing some of their finest drivers and cars in front of the Scottish fans who are so dyed-in-the-wool when it comes to oval racing.
First up for the teams is a trip to the Cowdenbeath Racewall venue on Saturday 07/09/2013 Start Time 6pm where a huge crowd is likely to gather for the Stock Rod World Championship... the MASCAR’s will be in support together with National Saloon Stock Cars for this one. This track is quite unique in the fact that it runs around the outside of the Cowdenbeath FC Football Pitch, the fans and teams alike experience football ground type facilities with excellent vantage points and first class facilities.
Three Drivers (#99, #20, #10) who featured heavily in the results when the MASCAR’s last visited Cowdenbeath have either moved onto pastures new or are taking a break from the sport, leaving the door wide open for a new crop of stars to take centre stage – Those closest to the formula would struggle to predict likely candidates such is the competitive and unpredictable nature of the racing at the moment. Check out the Driver’s profile page to pick a favourite for the weekend, or study ‘form’ on the Race Reports page to find a possible winner.
On the Sunday 08/09/2013 Start Time 2pm the teams will make the short trip up the road to the Knockhill Circuit where the drivers will compete on the Tri-Oval for a different challenge to the one posed by the previous nights racing at the heavily banked Cowdenbeath Venue. The Knockhill oval will incorporate the famous hairpin turn which has been the scene of many great battles over the years in all forms of motorsport , this as well as the rise and fall of terrain together with two quicker but equally as complex corners to negotiate should be the ultimate test of man, women and machine! The person to beat during the MASCAR’s last visit to the venue was the #25 of Robin Bath on what turned out to be a very wet day, will the Wickwar based driver’s pace and talent come to the fore again, or will a change of conditions on the back of a very dry and warm summer lead to another winner??
Don’t miss out on what promises to be a fantastic weekend of oval racing north of the border, further details can be found http://www.racewall.co.uk/

Sunday’s meeting at the Primo International Arena (click here for track details) see’s the MASCAR drivers competing for the final time at the Northamptonshire based venue in the 2013 season, it also signals the end to a particularly busy period where championship battles have really started to gather pace, leaving a whole host of drivers in with a genuine shot of silverware and championship accolade.
The 'Primo' hosted arguably the best race of the 2013 season last time out on July 13th, with every MASCAR driver playing their part in a spectacular display of side by side racing where a fag paper or less separated the front of the field from the back. The MASCAR drivers will be keen to put on a similar display this Sunday (11/08 13:30 Start Time) on the back of an action packed weekend on the South East coast. Aaron Cooke (#96) currently leads the way in the overall championship and extended his lead over his closest rivals with a solid weekends racing down at Ipswich and Yarmouth (footage can be found here with thanks to Jim Cooke) , the highlight of which was a win in the final on Saturday night and he will be keen for a repeat performance this weekend. That’s not to say that the rest of the field should be discounted though- Steve Stanford (MASCAR Champion 2011 and Promoter) found himself back in a car for the first time in 18months this weekend and was quick to acknowledge just how much the pace and competitiveness of the formula has improved, this is a true testament to the hard work and commitment of each team who have undoubtedly put in long hours in order to raise the bar and status of the series.
Local hopes come in the form of the #48 and #49 TopServe Auto’s cars of Ian Kerry and Dean Nixon, both drivers feature at the sharp end of all major championship battles, and have shown good form and strong finishes in most meetings this year, both drivers epitomise what’s been written above in terms of commitment and support towards the series, if you find yourself with a spare 5 minutes before the meeting be sure to check out their race transport.... they certainly bring a little bit of the BTCC (touring cars) to the oval racing paddock.
There is still plenty of time to get yourself out on grid in a MASCAR and there are car’s and packages to fit all types of budgets. Sunday is the perfect opportunity to learn the ropes in one of these pocket rockets in preparation for a full weekends racing in Scotland at the beginning of September, be sure to give Steve Stanford a call on 07540934998 to discuss further details and opportunities available.
(Photo's courtesy of Andy Hankin at ovalpix.com)Weekend Preview - August 3rd & 4th
The MASCAR series heads to the South East this weekend for a two day oval racing spectacular.
The MASCAR drivers and their teams will visit two separate venues to contest rounds 10 and 11 of the Championship. First up is Foxhall Stadium Ipswich on Saturday evening - 18:45 first race (click here for directions and further details) a huge sum of money has been spent on upgrading the venue and the facilities in the last 6 months, and the stadium offers some spectactular vantage points. The atmosphere and buzz that both the drivers and the fans experience would be sure to leave some of our American oval racing counterparts jealous, and keen for the same opportunity to turn a wheel around this fast paced ¼ mile oval!
The MASCAR teams will then re-group and move onto Great Yarmouth 17:30 start time (click here for directions and further details), the track is located within 5 minutes of the beach so a day out beside the seaside (weather permitting!) is a must before another evening of fast paced racing. In terms of size and the challenge presented, the track at Great Yarmouth couldn't be much different to Ipswich, short straights and tight corners mean that the racing is bound close and hard fought- make no mistake the large run off areas and soft tyre barriers seen on tv for our pampered F1 or touring car drivers aren't to be found at this 'proper' stock car venue!
Both evenings also have a full card of support car racing from both the banger and stock car forumlas so 'bang for your buck' is guaranteed.
