Dunlop Festival finale at Rockingham

THE Dunlop Great & British Motorsport Festival programme comes to a close at Rockingham next weekend (September 27/28) with the final event promising to be entertaining with all the championships going down to the wire.

There will be close sportscar racing from the Radical UK Cup and Radical Club Cup, while the British Touring Car stars of the future battle it out wheel-to-wheel in the Dunlop Sport Maxx Cup.

MINI lovers can enjoy a feast of racing from the UK’s longest running single make formula, the MINI Se7en Championship as well as the modified 1300 MINI Miglia Championship and the MINI challenge.

To round off the meeting there will be 150mph paint-swapping action from the 2008 Pickup Truck Championship series on Europe’s fastest racing circuit - the Rockingham oval.

There will be plenty of family entertainment off-track with face painting, children’s entertainers and the Fordpark Raceway. Fans will also have the opportunity to get close to the action as general admission includes access to an open paddock.

Fans can save up to 20 per cent on adult admission prices by booking in advance. Tickets for the main race day on Sunday (September 28) cost just £12 or weekend passes are priced at only £18.

Both race day and weekend passes can be purchased on the gate and cost £15 and £20 respectively. Tickets are also available for practice and qualifying sessions on the Saturday (September 27), and are priced at £8.

Advance bookings can be made at www.rockingham.co.uk or via the ticket hotline on 08700 134 044. Fans that came to the last meeting at Rockingham can get in for just £10 on the day with their BRSCC ticket stub.

Team Rockingham will also be in action at this meeting when the pickup truck championship returns to the oval for round nine of the ten-meeting racing series.

Antony Hawkins in his #98 special Rockingham liveried is in 11th place overall on 1928 points. Former double champion Gavin Seager currently leads the championship on 3210 points with Simon Carr (2913) and Steve Dance (2910) in second and third respectively
