MRF Legends Series - Rockingham Weekend Racing (30th September - 1st October 2017)
Legends Racing Rockingham - The second to last race in the championship!
Team First4Vans and the MRF Legends Cars National Championships.
We have to start with some bad news… Almost as soon as it began, the MRF Legends Cars National Championships is drawing to a close.
Our Se-Van (the only van in the legends series!) took part in the two days of racing over the weekend of the 30th September/1st October, with Nathan Anthony once again behind the wheel.
The now-famous #29 van was part of a wet and wild race at rainy Rockingham Super Speedway – try saying that five times fast!
Legends Racing Rockingham – story of the weekend
Before the 7th race of this 8-race series had started, the battle for the championship title was now a two-horse race between John Mickel (Horsham) and Ben Power (Guilsfield, Powys).
But the interest for First4Vans was around the middle of the table, where Nathan had been doing good work putting pressure on 6th placed rookie Miles Rudman (Sutton Coldfield), and was only 90 points behind at the start of racing.
The rain was back again, having blighted the last outing at Snetterton, and made life hard for our hero on the track.
Saturday Legends Racing Snetterton
Whilst Mickel and Power traded blows in the two heats, Saturday was not in our boy’s favour, as Nathan finished outside the top in both heats.
During the final race of the day, it was disappointment again for Nathan and Team First4Vans as we reached a best place of 9th in the wet – having had to make changes to the set up.
Sunday Legends Racing Rockingham
After the chaos of last month’s race interruption at Snetterton, Sunday’s racing was fairly straightforward, as the weather dried up for Heat Two.
Sean Smith (High Wycombe) won for the second time in his career in Heat One, while Steve Whitelegg completed a lights-to-flag victory in Heat Two, before capping the day off with another win in Sunday’s Final.
Nathan, meanwhile, was left to rue falling into 7th place in the Championship as the second Whitelegg brother Gary finished fifth in the Final to push above us in the standings.
On to next time…
Our next race is at Brands Hatch Indy Circuit in Kent for the FINAL event of the MRF Legends Cars National Championship season on the 4th/5th November.
Hopefully Team First4Vans can finish the season off with a bang on Bonfire Night!
