Golden Opportunity


Coventry, September 1, 2010: "Gears & Tears" is a BBC One series featuring Formula 1 stock car racing and the feuding between the legendary Smith and Wainman teams. Episode 4 on Monday 22 August perfectly captured the magic that is the World Championship finale.

On Saturday 4 September at MCM Stadium Coventry, the story continues, as the sport's two top drivers sit side-by-side at the front of the 2010 World Final grid, each determined to lift high the solid silver World Cup. On this occasion, winning means more to the drivers than the prize money.

This is a modern jousting tournament, where the white knight from Lancashire and the red knight from Yorkshire will spare no-one's feelings in their quest to be The Best.

Watching the race on television does not compare with being there. Nothing can do justice to the excitement which dawns with the sun and builds to magnificent crescendo, when the immortal words "Drivers, Start Your Engines" boom out from the PA. The roar of 34 Chevies firing up in unison is music to the ears of stock car fans.

If you want your spine to tingle; if you want to experience a thrill which is second to none (not even sex comes close!), you must be at Coventry Stadium on Saturday 4 September.

Don't wait for the official DVD to be released and then spend the next 12 months wishing you had been there and saying "If Only". . .

27 on the day buys a ticket to the covered; turnstiles open at 3.00pm. Wander round the pits, meet the drivers, visit the historic World Final Expo; relive past decades, as the BriSCA Heritage cars race once again around the Brandon Oval.

This your golden opportunity to see the best BriSCA F1 Stock Cars have to offer - don't miss it!
