On 28th of April Leicester Autograss Club Ran their qualifying meeting at Nottingham. Both clubs pulled together to put on Fantastic Meeting, in Memory of Club Veteran Mick Wyld.
UK Autograss Championship Success
A fantastic show was put on by all of our Nottingham Members, especially: Joe Martin, who would’ve clinched the class 5 Win, if it wasn’t for the red flags. Simon Reeve, Garry Cheetham, Martyn Jaynes, Becky Smith and Rachel Sims, Sue Thom who all made the finals! Really showed what Nottingham’s made of, let’s roll on Round 2 on home turf!! ;)
Melton NQ – May 12th.
Melton held the 3rd nation qualifier for the east midlands league, and there were plenty of Nottingham drivers out in force to stack up their qualifying points!
Notts drivers really did put on a brilliant show, with close racing between Joe Martin, Brain Wright and Garry Cheetham in Class 5.
A fantastic class 8 final with a Nottingham One-Two for Dave Palmer & Simon Reeve, & storming win by Lloyd Elliot in class 1s rounding off the day.
LEE’s on a Charge…

Event ReportThe 28th April showed Nottingham’s second race meeting of the year – Leicester’s qualifier held on our track and also the Mick Wyld Memorial trophy due to a cancellation of the previous date. 120+ drivers attended and provided some fantastic racing, especially in the class 6’s with local drivers Smig and Janesy, swapping and changing constantly, having a fantastic battle all day. There was some great class 7 racing, Nottingham’s Jake Lee really coming along in his seven, providing two ‘photos of the day’.
The Mick Wyld trophies were won by Simon Reeve (Champion of Champions), Barry Wasley highest point scorer and Andrew Clarke (best turned out car).
We had several comments about the new outfield layout being brilliant and working efficiently, so all in all great feedback for our venue.
After a brilliant meeting, qualifying points are extremely close, and so should provide greater racing at Melton and the Nottingham rounds. A meeting I’m sure Mick would have been proud of. Well done everyone!
