See: Schumacher Racing

This past weekend was the first round of the very popular Worksop Series, there was a huge entry of 167 drivers across the 3 classes of 2wd, 4wd and a vintage buggy class. All competitors in both 2wd and 4wd buggies must now use a brand new pair of Schumacher Honeycomb rear tyres at each event, these are marked as drivers book in first thing and then it makes it a much more level playing field for all racers. Entered for this event were some World class drivers, Michal Orlowski, Neil Cragg and Lee Martin, so the racing was going to be brilliant to see. As always it was round by round qualifying as the racing format, with the best 2 results from 4 rounds of qualifying counting towards the final position.
