Kings Lynn, F1 Stock Cars
Just back from the BriSCA F1 stock car world final at Kings Lynn.
I follow the Smith brothers. 391 Andy Smith & 390 Stu Smith Jnr. Cars pictured here in the pits before the race.
Both race 8 Litre powered Chevys. These stock cars are the most powerful that race together on a track anywhere in the world. More powerful than anything Jenson Button races. A F1 stock car is nothing like as quick, as they are heavy, but are designed to hand out, and withstand, massive hits from their fellow drivers, as well as belt round an oval track at high speed.
Well Andy Smith won. So he has held onto the title of World Champion, and gets to keep his gold painted roof to show that he has won the world final.
