1/8th Stock Cars season kicks off at Notts and Derby


The 4th of March is the 2018 season opener for the 1/8th Stock cars and is to include a special trophy for the most sporting driver as a fitting tribute to Keith Whittaker who sadly passed away last Sunday.


The race meeting will be the Keith Whittaker Memorial and will feature trophies for the all the top six who make it through to the final and a special award for the most sporting driver. Keith father to multi Stock Cars World champion Mark and his brother Andrew was an extremely popular character in and around the Stock Car ovals both here in the UK and over in Holland and an integral part of very successful Team Whittaker. He was always keen to impart his vast knowledge and experience to rival drivers whether they were novice or experienced and took great pleasure to see the resultant improvement in their cars performance. He will be sadly missed.

The Notts and Derby club racing facility can be found at Birnams Sports &Social Club, Newthorpe, Nottinghamshire NG16 2DE.  Just off the A610 from junction 26 of the M1

Racing is from approx 11.00am to 4.30pm and is open to any registered 1/8th Stock Car driver. Spectators are very welcome.
