Saturday 24th October – King’s Lynn – 5:30pm Round 9 of The Chase 2020
The next BriSCA F1 meeting takes place on Saturday 24th October as we return to the Adrian Flux Arena, King’s Lynn hosted by Trackstar.
After Rounds 7 and 8 of The Chase at Skegness Raceway Mark “ECL” Sargent (326) continues to lead the way but with Lee Fairhurst (217) playing his joker during Round 7, Sargent’s lead has been cut to only 4 points.
Jake Harrhy (345) continues to score consistently well nets him 3rd in the table so far, 45 points behind the leader but only 1 point in front of World Champion Tom Harris (1). Harris gave sister Catherine (8) an opportunity to race the tarmac car for the weekend at Skegness meaning Tom was making do with his shale car, putting in some good results in the process. Catherine put in some great drives in over the two days of racing, taking her to 36th place in The Chase.
The next two drivers are yet to play their jokers and could secure a front row start for the Finale if they decide to go for double points. Frankie Wainman Jnr (515) is 51 points adrift of the leader whilst Craig Finnikin (55) is 97 points behind.
Other drivers who continued to score well over the weekend was Joe Nickolls (242) and Phoebe Wainman (211) in 12th and 13th respectfully, Charlie Sworder (5), now in joint 15th with Finn Sargent (526) and Ant Lee (339) and Micky Randell who moves up to 22nd place.

History was also made on the Sunday of Skegness, not once but twice!
Firstly, it was the first time ever that three female drivers finished in the top 10 of a Grand Final. This is a fantastic achievement and shows the diversity of our sport in that our female drivers not only compete with the male drivers, but can also beat them in a race too. There’s not many sports where you will find men and women competing on an equal footing.
Those drivers were Phoebe Wainman (211), Catherine Harris (8) and Ashleigh Wareham (492).
Luke Davidson (464) was the other driver to make history that day. He becomes a member of an exclusive club of drivers who took Heat, Grand Final and Grand National victories within the same meeting and puts his name amongst the greats of our sport.

The Chase 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic brought the whole country to a standstill the week before our season was due to start back in March and with five months having passed, the decision was taken to postpone all major championships until 2021.
Once our sport was given the green light to finally get the season underway, albeit with a redueced capacity crowd, the fixture list was finally agreed and we now have eleven meetings until the end of the season on Sunday 8th November.
The eleven meetings are now officially known as “The Chase 2020 – BriSCA F1 Celebrate Our Frontline Workers”. The winner of this mini series will go down in history as the only person to win the title and will be allowed to display a Rainbow Roof for the 2021 season.
Fundraising has begun for The Chase 2020 and more information can be find via the GoFundMe page below:
