Oli Meggitt and the Essex Winter Series team have announced that they will be taking their style of racing event to the next level, by holding an outdoor race meeting later this Summer. The Essex Summer Series will be a one-off meeting, to be held on the weekend of the 13th and 14th September 2014 at the Brooklands Raceway, near Ashford, Kent, in the South East of the UK. Classes for the event will be Open Modified, and the debut in the UK of a new Super Stock class – 13.5 “Blinky” zero timing – which is already extremely popular across Europe, Asia and the United States. Any BRCA approved 13.5 turn motor can be used, with any zero-timing “blinky” speed controller and a maximum gear ratio of 4.0. Controlled tyres for both classes will be the popular Sorex 32 RY. Entries will open shortly here. You can also check out the EWS Events Facebook page for regular updates and to ask any questions here. If there are any international drivers interested in competing, you can contact Oli Meggitt (email@example.com) for more information and help with travel plans.
