Battle of the Ditch proves Speedway popularity yet again

Image result for Ditch proves SpeedwayIt never gets boring at the races. If you want to believe that, ask Oxford residents who are always streaming into the track on every race day whether it is an amateur or pro meet.

The recent Battle of the Ditch proved yet again how even mini-stock races can be a great attraction. The May 31 event had drivers from all over the town- a group of competitive youths who appeared to enjoy every minute of the action-packed weekend.

The same radiance was evident on the stands where the fans came out in large numbers and once again gave some wild cheers. They all looked every bit the part with wearables matching the colours of their favourite drivers on the track.

Also in attendance were some past mini-stock winners and participants from both within the town and beyond who brought their now full Stock rides to add some colour to the event. It was nothing short of a colourful event, with Anthony Hocking emerging the winner at the end of it all.

Anthony took home race prices courtesy of event sponsors Suck It up, Brownlees Contracting, Dave & Gerry, G J Gardner Homes, and Dave Corson who came in massively to make the event a success. All these companies have been involved with the Oxford Speedway for a while now, almost becoming part of its every day running.

Another notable winner from the weekend- without having to race- was a chap named Keith who gained Honorary membership at the Oxford Speedway for his continued personal support for different events.

As usual, Canterbury Waterblast was there to get the rides cleaned up after the muddy affair. Ever wondered ‘how the hell will all this dirt get cleaned up’ as you watched the races? Well, Waterblast takes up the unenviable task with a smile.

Overall, the 2018 Battle of the Ditch has proven once again that Speedway is here to stay.
