Welcome

 

 


We find ourselves 7 days away from the MASCAR's first visit to Skegness in 2014. The drivers will feature in a double header at the Lincolnshire venue racing on both the Thursday and Sunday night. The grid for this one will once again see a good blend of new talent together with the more experienced drivers which should lead to some good, fast, ultra competitive action!

Kids go free and the Adults will certainly get good value for money with an excellent assortment of supporting forumula's.

Dan Peters has joined the MASCAR series having purchased the ex #05 of Howard Hardy. Dan is based in Kent and is a Pirtek Franchise owner who has taken part in track days on 2 wheels as well as 4 and will race under the number #76.

Due to commitments away from the racetrack Dan won't be at the first couple of meetings but we look forward to welcoming his team, family and sponsors to a meeting in the very near future.

A JASCAR has also been purchased so that his son (another Daniel) can compete in the junior series during 2014. 

We wish both drivers the very best of luck in their rookie season.

 

 


The MASCAR series is proud to announce a new partnership with Kustom Racewear for the 2014 season. All 12 of the Team Owner's Challenge driver's will be kitted out in brand new fully embroided race suits, gloves and boots. This will help to enhance the image of our series and replicate the look of the NASCAR series over in the United States.

 Chris Pye from Kustom Racewear has also agreed to put his name to a team for the campaign, and will also sponsor the prestigious British Championship which will take place at Birmingham Wheels on the 1st November. The winner of this will receive a brand new race suit, race boots and gloves as well as two new tyres.

We thank Chris and Kustom Racewear for their support, the merchandise that they can offer is to the very highest quality and we thoroughly recommend that you visit his Facebook page where more photos and recent work can be found.

 


 

Ex GP Midget Star Jason Carnwell has joined the MASCAR series today having purchased the ex Nathan Nicholls machine. We wish Jason the very best of luck for the upcoming season and welcome his team and family to the series.

Jason will team up with fellow Rookie Dave Watkiss to take part in the 'Team Owner's Challenge' running under the Team OvalPix.co.uk banner for the forthcoming season.

A profile will appear on the Drivers page shortly.

 


Saturday saw the running of the final MASCAR/JASCAR test day before the start of the 2014 season. 

The day itself was hugely successful and new drivers were aqquired in both forumula's. We welcome Pete and Dan Ashton who have purchased the championship winning #22 MASCAR, they will share the car throughout the 2014 season and compete for the various championships on offer. Both have previous racing experience and their details will appear on the drivers profile section of the website over the coming days.

This takes the 'rookie' count up to 7 for the beginning of the season and should see the MASCAR's break a record this year - the biggest field of cars to appear at a meeting currently stands at 21 and we are confident that this will be surpassed early in the new campaign.

Saturday also saw competition winner Rich Masterson given the opportunity to test in the #22 car (as pictured below). Rich, a current Brisca F1 star seemed to adapt to our 'pocket rocket's' very well and was soon turning in some very quick laps, commenting after on how much he had enjoyed the experience.

Thank you to everybody who attended and helped make the day the success it was. Series drivers are now making their final preparations in readiness for the first round in 5 weeks time but it's  not too late to join the grid - see the FOR SALE page for our latest offers and join a formula ready to make a massive impression on the world of oval racing in 2014.

        Cooke Confirms Championship

  Congratulations to #96 Aaron Cooke who takes the Mascar 2013      Championship in style, Aaron also confirmed himself as the British Champion  and Birmingham Wheels 400 champion all in one meeting, With the #65 of Carnwell runner up and also bagging The Scottish, Southern and Midlands  Championships, With our 2013 semi pro title going to #08 Anthony Rogers, The  now confirmed rookie points title goes to #46 of Stuart Simmons and the track title of I Factor Champion goes to #27 of Dean Stimson in only his 4th meeting,

Weldone to all drivers and officials (track and Mascar) for a great year of Nascar Style racing! 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,

We look forward to our next meeting which will be held on Saturday 30th November in form of our presentation evening when all the drivers will be competing to drink the bar dry in true end of season fashion,

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.

Rogers return

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.

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.


SUPERB SCOTLAND!

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.
