See: Schumacher Racing

This past weekend was the sixth round of the Worksop Series, there was once again a great entry of 14 heats of drivers, this was across the 3 classes of 2wd, 4wd and a vintage buggy class. 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. Qualifying in 2wd was dominated by Craig Collinson who took TQ in three out of four rounds, so therefore he would line up on pole. In 4WD it was Steven Pierce who was on form taking three out of the four rounds of qualifying, so he would line up on pole. In the Vintage class it was Mitch Fiddling who would try his hand at using his Dads car in a couple of rounds of qualifying and would take pole, there were a couple of drivers that had a stand in driver throughout the day, so we allowed this as it was taken in great fun by all drivers.
