Buxton Raceway is set to host an exciting afternoon of racing on Sunday, 3rd September, starting at 1pm.

The Hot Fords will contest the annual Gold Roof Championship.

Drivers have raced at qualifying rounds during the racing season to gain their places on the grid, and spectators are sure to see fast, close racing, in the championship.

Micro F2 Stockcars will also be battling it out at the track.

Scaled down replicas of full-sized cars, youngsters aged 7 to 10 will get behind the wheels for the races.

A spokesman for the Raceway said: “The cars are really fast.

“You will be amazed at the ability and the racing spectacle they put on.”

The full-sized BriSCA F2 Stockcars are among the line-up of classes.

Drivers from far and wide will descend on Buxton for the section.

The racing is always really fast and furious, with great skill involved to win.

The Street Bangers will feature the annual Peggy Marson Memorial race for old or unwanted cars.

They will be raced for one last time before going off to the scrapyard.

The spokesman said: “Spins and rollovers are common and there will be lots of action throughout in this class.”

The Super Bangers section will also stage a memorial race — the Rob Jenkins Memorial.

Supers are armoured-up cars with huge engines and massive power outputs. They provide an amazing sight as they power round the fast Tarmac track.

The National Ministox are racing, armoured up classic Minis for drivers ages 11 to 16.

The spokesman added: “Lots of drivers will take part and the racing is top notch from the guys and girls.

“There will be something for everyone, so please come along and take a look if you have not been before.

“It’s a great, action-packed day of racing to suit all ages.

“Please check the website www.buxtonraceway.com for prices and driver bookings and track location.

“The track has trackside parking, covered terracing if the weather is poor, and hot food outlets and refreshments throughout the day.”
