MOTOR SPORT: Racing returns to Oulton Park tomorrow with action from the British Racing and Sports Car Club, including the second round of the North West Formula Ford Championship.
The North West series is one of the most competitive in the country for 1600cc Formula Ford cars, and attracts drivers from across the region.
One of these, Chester-based Jamie Stanley, will be competing in only his seventh car race and his first at Oulton Park.
The 22-year-old has already shown his talent by winning a scholarship from Three Sisters circuit last year, and took his first victory at Anglesey last weekend.
He also knows Oulton intimately, thanks to his position as a race instructor there.
Stanley said: 'I've certainly done enough laps to know my way round!'
In the Dunlop Tuscan Challenge, Tattenhall's Iain Jones will enter his second year of racing with a new TVR Chimera.
In the Porsche 924 Championship, Frodsham's Matt Davies will be in action. He is new to the championship, and has spent the last few months finishing his car that he built from scratch.
Tickets for the meeting cost £12 per adult per day, with children aged 12 and under admitted free. Parking and paddock access are also free. nThere was an unfortunate false start to North Wales Autograss's season - but the Broughton club is otherwise in good health.
The racing action was due to start earlier this month, but the weather put paid to those plans.
'With all the snow and rain that we'd had the field was just too soft,' said safety officer Russ Stubbings.
But, that aside, the club has gone from strength to strength since it started holding its meetings at a track in Broughton.
'The club is better than it has been for a long time, and it's been since the move to the new place. It's made a big difference to us,' said Stubbings.
The club had moved from Llay to a site near Oswestry, but the travelling time meant fewer members could take part.
The next official meeting in the area is at Broad Oak Farm, Lesters Lane, Broughton on April 23. Racing starts at 11am.
