… Grab Life by the Hall’s Stages, Kames, Sun 21 August …
The quaintly named ‘Grab Life by the .. Hall’s Stages’ will take to the track at Kames this Sunday 21st August and it promises to be a busy old day, with 16 stages and 30 cars and crews. The event counts towards both the Junior 1000 Ecosse Challenge for 14-17 year old drivers and East Ayrshire Car Club’s own Championship.
The Hall’s Stages actually marks the start of the second half of the 8 round Junior 1000 Championship. After four rounds Rian Walker currently leads the series by 3 points from Oliver Philips but they have scored on all four rounds so far and with competitors only able to count their best six from eight, the title chase is still wide open.
For instance, Sam Pattison (4th) has won three of the four rounds so far and dropped one score while Kalum Graffin (5th) has also dropped a score but won one event outright and finished second on the other two. In other words, these two are the current pace setters whereas Evan Findlay currently in third place in the points tables is proving that consistency is the key.
At the top end of the field, Chris McCallum leads the ‘seniors’ from Ross Auld and Allan McDowall, all in Mk2 Escorts, and if you see blue reek in Ross Auld’s wake, that’ll be tyre smoke!
It all gets underway at 09.10 Hrs on Sunday morning.
