16th August 2011: Ministox at Skegness

16th August 2011: Ministox at Skegness

The week has flown by. Once again we make our 3½ hour journey to Skegness. All is going well until 15 miles away from the track we have a blow out. After a quick inspection I decide just to take it steady and carry on to our destination as it will be much easier to […]


13th August 2011: Ministox at Coventry

13th August 2011: Ministox at Coventry

Only Frankie JJ racing this evening. After Phoebe’s racing antics at Skegness last Tuesday she received a 6 meeting ban (3 suspended) so she will not be back out until 27th August at Birmingham. We arrive at Coventry at 5.00pm. There are a few different formulae on this evening and the crowd is poor. I […]


9th August 2011: Ministox at Skegness

9th August 2011: Ministox at Skegness

We decide to take Phoebe & Frankie to Skegness. Sam Jacklin (137) is in need of a lift too so we tow him behind on the trailer. We leave home at 3.30pm and arrive at Skegness for 6.50pm. The sun is shining and the crowd is very impressive! Big Foot is there too ready to […]


7th August 2011: Ministox at Barford

7th August 2011: Ministox at Barford

A mixture of sunshine and showers on the way to Barford. Frankie JJ, like me loves wet tarmac and mentions that he’s going to put his shale tyres on when we get there. As it turns out Frankie JJ didn’t need to put shale tyres on as it remained fine. Approx 30 Minis turn up, […]


30th July 2011: MiniStox in the Isle Of Man & F1 Semi at Skegness

30th July 2011: MiniStox in the Isle Of Man & F1 Semi at Skegness

On Wednesday night, we spent all night loading up the Mini Truck ready for the Isle Of Man, taking four minis in total: Phoebe’s, Frankie’s , Sam Jacklin’s, and Cammy Dorrell’s. Three of them fit into the truck and we tow the other one. Thursday morning and everything’s going well until we get a blow […]


16th July 2011: Ministox at Stoke, F1 Euro at Northampton

16th July 2011: Ministox at Stoke, F1 Euro at Northampton

Such chaos in the week leading up to the European! Took on more work than I should have, earliest night this week was 11.30! At 4.30pm on Friday, me and Frankie JJ go to Long Eaton to collect our mini transporter. It has been at Steve Reedman’s having a new paint job. As usual he […]


2nd July 2011: F1 and Ministox at Coventry

2nd July 2011: F1 and Ministox at Coventry

Early start for all on Saturday morning, F1s to load plus the Ministox. All racing at the same meeting, which makes life a bit easier. It’s Phoebe’s turn to clean out the truck and she now wishes she had done earlier in the week! Frankie JJ has to clean out the back of the truck, […]


26th June 2011: F1 at Belle Vue

26th June 2011: F1 at Belle Vue

With no Minis racing this weekend the week was a little less busy. Thornie came up on Thursday night to work on my shale car which was still loaded up from Kings Lynn. I really appreciated this as that night I had to drive to Derby for a ‘Stock Car associated meeting’, not getting back […]


18th June 2011: MiniStox Open weekend at Skegness

18th June 2011: MiniStox Open weekend at Skegness

During the week I decided to take an F1 weekend off from Ipswich and Northampton, as Phoebe and Frankie JJ have a double header at Skegness. Besides, the mini truck is a lot cheaper to run than our blue one and Samantha can drive this one too. Thankfully there wasn’t too much damage from Stoke, […]


11th June 2011: F1 British Championship at King's Lynn & Minis at Stoke

11th June 2011: F1 British Championship at King’s Lynn & Minis at Stoke

On Saturday morning I drove the mini truck over to Manchester as Phoebe and Frankie JJ were racing at Stoke. Thankfully former F1 driver Steve Jacklin (136) has agreed to take them along with his son Sam. Get back to the farm at 11am, managed to get most of the loading up done the night […]
