A trip to Buxton 2nd August was next on the cards; the Buxton Cup trophy on the line and another WQ round drew 23 cars into the hills, another meeting with fantastic action. Terry Hawkins (275) took the win in the opening heat, the second race was simply fantastic, another chaotic first half of the action come thick and fast where the second half of the race saw Bryan Andrew (355) battling it out with Kevin Stuchbury (1), Andrew matching for speed, made a few attempts to move Stuchbury, eventually getting by after the halfway distance to take the win, further down the field the last bend hits also made for interesting watching, Jon Brown (288) unable to move over James Cobley (309) for third, but George Shone made sure he got by Phoebe Wainman (211) and Olly Spencer (498) with a perfect hit to snatch fifth with a three way drag race to the line for good measure. The Buxton Cup Final went the way of Kevin Stuchbury (1) but not before the World Champ and Simon Sykes (64) engaged in a battle, trading paint for much of the race. The Grand National then saw Jon Brown (288) take victory to round off another great day of action.
