Nine drivers attended the quick Hednesford Hills Raceway for the 2019 2 Litre Battle of Britain. It was great to see a number of Dutch racers return to the league after long absences recently, with 66 Colin, 629 Storm and 997 Rik all returning to the action, which was not just excellent racing wise but also crashing wise; the second Allcomers was so destructive it had to be restarted due to no drivers finishing! The nine drivers were split over 4 teams as follows:
WORLD CLASS WRECKERS
With Jon and Looney from 2018's winners "Admin Squad" in separate teams, it meant that only one and not both of them could retain the title. Once again, the title was won by the team who finished the most...
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 the event of a tie, 2 points were given to each surviving team.
RS = Riot Squad
WC = World Class Wreckers
TB = Team Bandicoot
SS = Sam/Storm

A comprehensive performance from Jon & Jam saw Riot Squad win the meeting by 10 points from the World Class Wreckers. 606 & 616 only failed to both finish a race once out of 7 attempts, and the ex-European champion's two race wins and two seconds on his way to a haul of 28 individual points were complimented by a stolen win by the league admin (with Colin having been taken out on the last bend in Heat 4) and the second Allcomers. Incredibly the star performer on the night was Brett, who claimed 29 points as well as a heat, the final and the first Allcomers to secure WCW's second place. Sam also had a great night, amassing 21 points alongside Storm and winning a heat in the process. Team Bandicoot finished fourth but this was mainly due to Rik deciding to go rear wheel drive for the night instead of rodding, wrecking everyone at one point! 997 was still able to claim a race win but somehow was unable to kill the 673 car in the DD despite bursting both of the XFG's front tyres!
So, to remind you:
CONGRATULATIONS TO RIOT SQUAD - WINNERS OF THE 2019 2 LITRE BATTLE OF BRITAIN!
