LEEWOOD SEASON REVIEW
After a delayed start to our season here at LEEWOOD due to the weather i.e. the flooded track , canoes would have been needed to get around the track, then the beast from the east , we managed through a lot of hard work to run 5 race days, including our war of the roses 2 day event.
.The sun did shine on all our meetings including our season finale on the 2nd September.
A huge well done to all our class points champs and to our new Ladies and Mens champion of champions Suzanne and Jack Gibbons.
Quite a few new drivers racing with LM prefix this season, always a good thing.
A BIG thanks to all our visiting drivers from as far away as Scotland and mid Wales especially, come back again next year.
Hopefully we will attend charity cars shows again next year to promote the club .
We are also looking for sponsors for 2019, contact a committee member if you can help.
So that's it at LEEWOOD for 2018.
Vinny Gibbons Heywood based garage owner has been a LEEWOOD member since the 1970s..He raced a Ford v6 in class 10 that engine was mated to a VW transmission and generally worked well ,making one of the quickest cars in the class nationally .he has won many trophies ...
Vinny decided he wanted more power under his right foot so with a fresh chassis this time with a Chevrolet v8 for power he has developed a racer to compete with the nations best.
Vinnys other cars include a mark 9 1950s Jaguar and a Chev Corvette.
Back in the 80s Vinny ventured out in a formula one stock car at the old Belle Vue, just the once and decided to stick with Autograss.
Thanks for your time Vinny.
