Before I begin this write-up, I must apologise to everyone who attended for the behaviour of 902 Drakey that eventually led to him being kicked from the meeting and his results annulled. Since his return to LFS Bangers, he has been the cause of numerous complaints from drivers about his behaviour, largely due to silly shots on oppo where it's not allowed. It has been a very long time since Drakey raced regularly, and I cannot recall him acting like he did tonight back then. Please do not behave in a daft manner as it ruins it for everyone.
Onto tonight's racing, and the summer lull continued with eight drivers in total attending the perilous post-and-wire of Yarmouth Stadium for the 2019 Unlimited Battle of Britain; 217 Tilson returned after a period away to join the defending champions WCW, with Looney and Brett aiming for back-to-back titles. Owing to the above removal of Drakey from the meeting, the seven drivers were split as follows:
673 Sam M.*
WORLD CLASS WRECKERS
Despite a late surge, the Unlimited Battle of Britain title switched hands...
Top 5 scored in heats and final. Allcomers were non-points. Drivers in italics finished but did not score points. 5 points went to the winning team in the DD.

In what eventually became a head-to-head battle between Riot Squad and World Class Wreckers, it was the challengers who emerged victorious by 7 points, with the title wrapped up in the final thanks to Sam M.'s heat and final double to be top performer on the night with 30 points as well as an Allcomers win. Jam also contributed with a heat and the other two Allcomers with Jon contributing a vital 11 points. Spook was the top man for WCW, claiming 3 heats running as well as second in the final to score 26 points, with Brett completing the winners' list with the first and last events of the night in Heat 1 and the DD respectively.
So, to remind you:
CONGRATULATIONS TO RIOT SQUAD - WINNERS OF THE 2019 UNLIMITED BATTLE OF BRITAIN!
* Sam M. was originally in Team Aftermath with Drakey but requested his results to be moved to Riot Squad immediately after Drakey was removed from the meeting
