Sunday 18 September, Buxton

The Midgets raced on the newly tarmaced surface with the fastest time of the day being set in practice by Steve Young (59), who unfortunately then had car problems and was unable to race. For the rest the racing was fast with overtaking a little tricky on the outside line. Mark Hodges (5) took a pole to flag victory in the first heat and ex ministox driver Camey Dorrell taking heat 2. The final was a very high speed race interrupted by a couple of yellow flags, the first for Dave Bonser (10) when he had suspension failure and the second when Camey had a spin in turn 1 and hit the marker tyres, leaving her stranded in the middle of the turn. Mark Hodges led on the restart, and went on to win ahead of the Pooley brothers Jonathan and Daniel. Five cars crossed the finish line as one with only a few tenths separating them all, with Leon Smith (3) taking 4th and Clifford Bunn (23) in 5th.

Heat 1:- 1st 5 Mark Hodges, 2nd 262 Camey Dorrell, 3rd 10 Dave Bonser, 4th 31 Jonathan Pooley, 5th 32 Daniel Pooley, 6th 37 Tony Smith, 7th 3 Leon Smith, 8th 23 Cliff Bunn, 9th 4 Michael Sutch, NOF.
