September is here which means so too is the final meeting of the 2014 season at Dover Raceway but it could be a case of saving the best for last as the National Bangers, Bangerstox and Super Rods all do battle in their biggest races of the season, the 2014 Masters Championship finals on Sunday, September 7.

Itís been another cracking season at the venue with several superbly supported meetings on both sides of the fence although one or two have fallen foul of the wet weather, none more so than our most recent meeting on August 25 where the final third of the meeting was cancelled with bottom bend near un-negotiable due to the flooding so we will all be hoping for more favourable racing conditions this time. 

Last year saw former World Champion 271 Dean Goodall win the National Bangers Masters Championship and with it also secure the Dover Track Championship but he has been noted by his absence in 2014 which means the only thing guaranteed here is that a new champion will be crowned. 

As far as the track championship goes it looks an almost certainty that 188 John Reeves will regain the title for the third time in four years as he heads into the meeting with a near unbeatable 86 point lead. The big question is can he finally add the Masters Championship to his collection after several attempts and a few near misses and there is no escaping how much winning this long running title would mean to 188 Victor.

While his advantage in the track championship is most comfortable, he will start with little advantage in the Masters Championship where the competition will be as fierce as ever.

His nearest rival in the track championship is former Dover and Masters champion 53 Dave Palmer who, with his hopes of regaining the track championship looking likely to be over for this season he will be even more determined to regain the Masters crown. 

And he will need a good score here with final winner last time out 267 James Steel moving up to third place, 13 points adrift of Palmer and with 898 Andy Battle, one of RDC and the sports finest in 2014, a similar amount of points behind the race for second in the Dover track championship is likely to be a close one. 

Also qualifying from the Masters qualifying points in 2014 are Kent team championship final winner 592 Mark Marchant, former Masters Champion 349 Lee Saunders, the ever entertaining 502 Kayligh Dighton, 571 George Goodall, 327 Mick Maskall, 442 Sean Crittenden, 449 Billy Crittenden and former Hot Shots Champion 402 Albie Jenner who all know how to win races at Dover and will all start the biggest race of the season at the Kent venue as contenders. 

Looking to add some spice to proceedings are likely to be some of the confirmed visiting drivers for the big race and leading that list will certainly be Aftermath quartet 32 Alan Wombwell, 100 Callum White, 132 Robert James and 708 Jamie Nottingham whose presence is likely to be most welcome. Likewise the addition of Gladiator quartet 363 Sam and 367 Tom Keep, 206 Phil Milner and 548 Jamie Avery is also likely to help spice things up. 

And donít bet against one of the last chance qualifiers being a contender with the likes of 288 Stacey Reeves, 741 Charlie Daniels, 346 Scott Saunders, 108 Lewis Jefcote, 101 Ian Norris, 123 Tony and 623 Ricky Hutton all hoping to qualify on the day.

The National Banger programme also includes the annual Trophy Winners Dash, a winner take all race only open to race winners, entertainer award winners and drivers who have finished in the top three in a final at Dover this season in what is typically a fast and furious scrap for the cash. 

Moving away from the National Banger action we have the limited contact Bangerstox whose final meeting of the season which plays host to both their points championship decider and the Masters Championship, both of which promise to be fine contests. 

Itís been another tremendous season for this formula with some record breaking car counts and average entries of around 50 cars, even the most recent meeting on August 25 saw 45 drivers turn out despite being faced with some of the wettest and worst conditions we have ever seen at the circuit and despite this they still produced some competitive racing.

Hopes will be high that the weather is less of a factor for their biggest race of the season and should the weather gods play ball this has the makings of being a very competitive affair. 

The race to top the qualifying points and secure pole position for the event has been a big battle in itself and it went all the way to the final race of the series where the determination of Suffolk Champion 16 Jamie Dunford to win the final heat on August 25, by which point the entire bottom bend of the circuit was almost completed flooded by the monsoon like conditions, was rewarded as those points proved enough to secure him pole position in the race. 

Joining him on the front row will be 19 Dan Rowson who has enjoyed a fine first full season in the formula, having won the first two finals of the year for the formula at Dover and he has remained a leading contender in the points championship ever since and he heads into this meeting with high hopes of winning both the Masters and the points championships. 

Row two starts with fellow points championship contender 8 Sean Cooper who had been a leading contender for pole position in the Masters but failed to score a single race point in the dire conditions last month. The wet weather seems to be a chink in his amour as he also lost out in the Southern Championship in May when the rain started to fall. 

On that day it was 92 Amy Harper who triumphed to win a thrilling Southern Championship and a decent score on August 25 saw her come out on top in the race for fourth to secure a row two start, finishing just one point ahead of both 72 Martin Lewis and former Suffolk Champion 88 Nick Dash. 

Lewis has been one of the breakout stars of the season and could be the surprise package of the year while Dash will be looking for a strong end to a somewhat disappointing season which has really seen him struggle over the last couple of seasons. 

Defending champion 15 Jay Powell starts behind and while he has had a decent, if unspectacular, season he is another leading contender here and is well overdue some luck.

It remains to be seen if reigning points champion 1 Chris Young will take his place on the grid as he has not been seen in action since July but he would certainly be another to watch while behind him come young guns 94 Dean Jarvis, 26 Robin Ash and 23 Dan Rudd who have all proved fine additions to the formula in 2014 and are strong contenders for the top 10 at least. 

Behind them comes former Super Rod champion 41 Pete Emson whose stunning form in August has seen him return to the top of the points championship battle but from the second half of the grid he will have plenty of work to do. 

The remainder of the top 18 to guarantee a starting place here are 58 Owen Charles, 38 Shane Harvey, 71 George Treeby, 21 Glyn Butcher, 48 Kane Sharpe and 4 Mat Jackson who are all capable of doing well here, Treeby being one to watch after leapfrogging his way into the championship after an excellent showing last time out. 

There is still the business of the last chance qualifier with at least two places up for grabs on the grid and some useful drivers here such as Richard Randall Memorial winner 18 Chelsie Craydon, 75 Neil Parker, 78 Matt Steel and Kent Champion 81 Darryl Garratt among the leading contenders to advance to the main event. 

The meeting again plays host to the conclusion of the 2014 points championship which looks likely to be just as competitive as the Masters Championship. 

Emsonís superb form in August, including a near perfect score on August 25 saw him return to the top of the points chart, albeit a mere point in front of Rowson while failing to score last time sees Cooper drop to third but just 14 points behind the leader and still in contention. Harper remains in the frame but with 22 points between here and Emson she is perhaps more of an outside bet but still capable of at least cracking the top three. Dunford and Young look course to finish in the top 10 but behind itís incredibly close with 11 points covering eight drivers fighting for the remaining top 10 spots where Darryl Garratt, 45 Edward Breaker, Charles, Powell, Harvey, Lewis and Dash are in the running. 

Completing the line up will be the non-contact Super Rods who also conclude their 2014 points championship as well as competing for the Masters Championship which will be defended by 3 James Donavan. 

Donavan managed a clean sweep of championship victories in the Super Rods in 2013 but has failed to win a single title so far this season and the Masters now looks set to be his final opportunity to make a successful title defense and one where he is a contender. 

He finished a very close fourth in the qualifying points and while the exact nature of the grid is yet to be known (the cars will be split into up to four groups with at least two cars per group based on their qualifying points) he is still close enough to the front to mount a challenge for the title as well as still in with a shout of finishing at least second in the points race.

Leading both the points championship and starting the Masters Championship on pole position is 85 Jack Miles who has already lifted the Kent Championship in 2014. Ultimately he won the race for pole in the Masters fairly comfortably, beating nephew 87 Bobby by 18 points and he enjoyed a 20 point advantage over him heading into the final round of the points championship but while this is a comfortable cushion the race is not done yet. With 20 points to the winner of the championship failure to finish for Jack Miles could easily blow the points race wide open for the remainder of the afternoon. 

While Jack Miles starts the day with a useful edge in the points race things are closer behind with Bobby Miles just six points ahead of Donavan while beyond that 29 Steve Donavan is also six points ahead of 10 Ben Palmer in the race for fourth. 

Palmer has been one of the leading new faces in the formula this year and has worked hard to finish third in the qualifying points race and is another leading contender for a new champion in the formula while former Masters Champion Steve Donavan has already won the Southern title this season and would love nothing more than to win the Masters Championship again but from a little further down the grid he has a lot of work ahead of him to reach that target. 

From further down the field 187 Robin Miles could be one to watch from near the back. One of the fastest around the circuit he is unlikely to stay there for long while 66 Edwin Walker has shown much promise after moving into the formula a couple of meetings ago and was a race winner last time out. Meanwhile 5 David Donavan and 72 Darren Worriner have both had their share of issues this season and would love to end 2014 on a high note.

Banger and stockcar racing offers excitement, action and fun for all the family at a great value for money price and this event is no different. Admission is just £10 for adults, OAPs are £6, under 14s are £5 and under 5s are free and you can take advantage of the family tickets which admits any two adults and up to three under 14s for just £25 so there is no excuse to not bring the whole family along as well. And at Dover Raceway there are no hidden costs in the admission prices with the race programme and track side car parking all included as well. 

The first race starts at 1pm.

Mildenhall Stadium
Saturday September 13 6.30pm
All Granada National Bangers
(Mildenhall Track Championship rd20 and RDC RWD Points Championship), Saloon Stockcars (Mildenhall Track Championship rd8) and Ministox (Mildenhall Track Championship rd12)

Admission Prices: Adults £14, OAPs £8, under 14s £6, under 5s free, family ticket (any two adults and up to three under 14s) £34. Prices include programme and car parking

Another evening of full contact motor racing is on the horizon at Mildenhall Stadium on Saturday, September 13 with a heavy slice of rear wheel drive racing as well as the National Bangers enjoy their annual all Ford Granada event and are joined by the all action Saloon Stockcars and young guns in the Ministox in the latest rounds of their track championship battles. 

The combination of these three contact formulas, is for many an ideal mix at the Suffolk shaleway and with the added attraction of the all Granada Banger meeting this occasion has added significance for being a fine evening of entertainment. 

This is in fact the fifth staging of the all Granada National Banger meeting at Mildenhall, a format which has become increasingly popular in the sport and this will in fact be the fifth all Granada event in the UK this year. While on the one hand it is a little disappointing that so many others have jumped on the band wagon which inevitably means numbers are not what they once were, and perhaps could still be (one Granada meeting this season failed to see the entry numbers make double figures) but if imitation is the sincerest form of flattery then maybe we should be flattered. 

The highlight of our all Granada event was in 2013 where we staged the sportís maiden all Mk1 and Mk2 Granada event to help celebrate our 20th season and the format ensured the anniversary was marked in style. Last yearís event remained an all Mk1 and Mk2 affair and while the number of cars racing was far more modest it was still a fine evening of racing and arguably one of the best meetings in the sport in 2013 with a field of under 40 cars. 

With Mk1 and Mk2 Granada meetings becoming all the rage in 2014 we elected this year to open the meeting up to Mk3 and Mk4 models this time (a format we had been saving for our 25th anniversary season until the Granada format caught on) and it appears to have been a successful move and initial bookings were very encouraging with instantly around the same amount of drivers as we saw 12 months ago booked in for this yearís meeting.

The Mk3 and Mk4 Granada was never a popular choice among drivers due to its weakness when compared to the Mk1 and Mk2 but it is hoped with the older Granadas becoming increasingly difficult to source that allowing the more modern models will help maintain numbers while the car is unlikely to be more competitive that the older models. 

What is especially encouraging about this yearís meeting is the amount of lively drivers among the initial bookings including several of the drivers who helped make last yearís event such a success. This includes Team Sowter trio 288 Carl and 388 Taylor Sowter and 884 Tom Filmer who were in excellent form last year and have continued to be on their visits to Mildenhall this season, 388 Lump winning the Steamer Memorial Trophy last month. Their ranks will expand this time with the addition of 401 Trevor and 883 Jack Filmer and dirt track legend 188 Mark Sowter whose presence will be especially noteworthy. 

Throw in the likes of 67 Ricky and 77 Patxi Beasley, 90 Adrian Harboard, 311 Lee Bradbury, 327 Mick Maskall Jnr and 913 Brett Osborne, almost always involved in the action somehow and someway and certainly well involved last year and now coupled with additions to the line up like 76 Terry Mansfield, 95 Anton Marin, 209 Ben Heyward, 257 Jaimie Neve, Management trio 346 Scott and 349 Lee Saunders and 380 Trevor Wright and 508 Harry Bradbury and you have the makings of a very lively night indeed.

The meeting also has the potential to be a competitive night as well especially the various points races heading towards their conclusion. This meeting will mark the return to Mildenhall of reigning track and Supreme Champion 328 Dan Lathan from suspension. He has watched 313 Craig Osborne erode his once commanding lead in the Mildenhall points and pass him and now the battle is well and truly on with former Mildenhall champion 673 Darren Fendley and 898 Andy Battle not too far behind and this will meeting will also settle the RDC seeds for the forthcoming Spedeworth World Final at Ipswich with these three set to be battling for two of the final four places on the grid. 

This meeting is also the penultimate round of the RDC RWD points which is now headed by Battle who has been not only one of RDCís most dedicated and finest in 2014 but also one of the sports most dedicated and finest and a silver roof in 2015 would be a worthy reward. His nearest rival is 188 John Reeves who is currently not booked in for this meeting with 349 Finbarr the only other driver in current contention

Moving over to the stockcar elements of the evening and we start with Saloon Stockcars who return to the West Row shaleway for round eighth of their track championship. 

Itís been a slightly unusual lay out for our Saloon fixtures at Mildenhall in 2014 and this latest outing comes after another unusually long absence of Saloon action here with our last taste of the formula coming during the course of One Wild Weekend on July 26 and 27 where the drivers more than added to the wild tag of the two days with some fantastic racing and by the end of it former World Champion 360 Carl Waterfield not only raised the EA Championship but also re-established himself as a contender for the track championship. 

His track title hopes were boosted by European Champion 499 Dave Aldous being one of several drivers who was unable to compete during the second day of the weekend which was another brutal affair of some of the hardest stockcar racing you are likely to see anywhere, the 25 car opening heat in particularly being a quite superb affair and very reminiscent of the spell binding racing we saw on the first night of the European Championship weekend. 

By winning both Grand Finals during the course of One Wild Weekend Waterfield has managed to close the gap between him and points leader Aldous to 39 points with three meetings left in the season and this round could prove make or break for Waterfieldís hopes as should he fail to make any more ground on the European champion here it could prove a very difficult task with only two more meetings after this September fixture. 

It wasnít just Waterfield who enjoyed much success during the course of One Wild Weekend, he was in fact a hat trick race winner over the two days, but also 164 Neil Kent had a hugely successful time with three wins as well over the two days to mark an immensely successful first meeting of the season and he will be keen to build on that here especially as this is the final qualifying round for the white and yellow grade series final in October. This points race is currently headed by 442 Simon Berry, 12 points ahead of 214 Tom Yould with 610 Trent Arthurton 13 points behind him in the race for pole with 220 Casey Englestone and 270 Matt Fuller close behind. 

The weekendís other race winner was 349 Michael Allard, his first Saloon Stockcar victory at the Suffolk shaleway which more than underlined his greatly improved form in the division this season. 

While the gap between first and second in the Mildenhall points remains a fairly substantial one the race for second is much closer with Waterfield just 15 points ahead of former British and English Champion with reigning Mildenhall Champion 306 Daniel Parker, who was back to his brilliant best during One Wild Weekend, a further seven points behind in what looks likely to be a close fought battle for the podium spots in the track championship over the remainder of the season. 

Beyond that Englestone is a somewhat comfortable fifth in the standings, 18 points behind Parker and 19 points ahead of a great battle for the remaining top 10 points with just 17 points between March 29 final winner 570 Simon Venni, Berry, former British Champion 428 Lee Sampson, Allard, 218 Jacob Downey, third place finisher in the European Champion 730 Dean Mayes, 131 Timmy Barnes, 698 Danny Colliver (who was a real live wire during One Wild Weekend), 6 Simon Welton, 304 Martyn Parker and former Mildenhall Champion 641 Willie Skoyles.

Throw in the likes of 391 Jake Banwell, Artherton, 386 Daniel Petters and 800 Scott Greenslade who have all won races at Mildenhall as well this season and you can see why this conclusion of the season has so much potential. 

Completing are the 11 to 16 year old young guns in the Ministox in round 12 of the Mildenhall Championship which kicks off a busy period for the drivers at Mildenhall as this is the first of three consecutive Saturday night meetings for the formula culminating in the ORC Championship at the end of the month. 

But for now this meeting will be largely about the Mildenhall and RDC Drivers Points Championship which continue to rumble away nicely with the formula continuing to produce some quite majestic racing this season and this was again the case at their most recent outing on August 10. Sadly the awful weather meant the classic car show was a non-starter but the determination of the Ministox drivers meant their programme went ahead as scheduled and even the most intense of storms (so great it brought down three trees at the stadium) which resulted in heat two being delayed could deter the drivers and their efforts were rewarded a little with the sun breaking through by the end of the day. 

Each of the four races produced a different winner with 368 Dan Santry and 394 Liam Aspin making the most of the difficult conditions to triumph in the heat races before 356 Harry Overy, who retained the Dover Track Championship in August, came through to win a hard fought and action packed final ahead of 301 Josh Simpson and Santry with 304 Tony Elbourn claiming the Allcomers.

Victory in the last race for Elbourn sees him move to the red grade for the first time in his career and heíll be working harder than ever from that starting point at these meetings while Overyís recent purple patch, which also includes an excellent fourth in the National Championship at Taunton in August, sees him return to the red grade for the first time since May. 

Another driver to move up to the grades for the September 13 meeting will be 390 Nina Leigh who enjoyed some excellent form at the August 10 meeting and while she narrowly missed out on taking a race win on more than one occasion she still enjoyed her best score of the season and combined with a decent score at the Suffolk Open on July 19 she moves to the yellow grade for the first time. 

The aforementioned Suffolk Open was a race which was sadly blighted by controversy but ultimately 375 Alex Hensby was named the winner ahead of impressive newcomer 315 Charlie Santry and Elbourn, the latter winning the previous heat as the only driver to win races at both of our last two meetings with 310 Harry Wellham the other race winner on July 19. 

Six different winners from our last seven Ministox races at Mildehall is a great example of how competitive the formula has been in 2014, Wellham becoming the 17th different winner of the year on July 19 and when you consider reigning RDC Drivers Champion 399 Cole Atkins, ORC and National Champion 329 Will Morphey and former Winter Series Champion 321 Marcus Skeels are still looking for their maiden wins of the season it really does hammer home how hard it is to predict a winner in this formula. 

Aspin continues to enjoy a useful advantage in the Mildenhall championship of over 60 points with hat truck winner in April Simpson his nearest rival but these meetings remain important to Aspin as any slip in his form could allow any of the chasing pack to close in on him. 

The race for second could not be much closer with just two points between Simpson, Overy and Elbourn with Santry just behind and Atkins and 317 Lauren Overy clicking at their heels.

The battle at the top of the RDC Drivers Championship is much closer as following his superb run of form in August Harry Overy heads into September just eight points behind Aspin and this is likely to be a critical month in that battle while Atkinsí recent form has moved him to third ahead of Elbourn and Santry with Morphey, Lauren Overy, Skeels, Hensby and Leigh completing the top 10. 

Banger and stockcar racing offers excitement, action and fun for all the family at a great value for money price and this event is no different. Admission is just £14 for adults, £8 for OAPS, £6 for under 14s and free for under 5s and you can take advantage of the family tickets which admits any two adults and any three under 14s for just £34 (additional under 14s cost £4 with a family ticket) so there is no excuse to not bring the whole family to enjoy the evening. And at Mildenhall Stadium there are no hidden costs in the admission prices with the race programme and car parking all included as well. 

The first race is at 6.30pm.
