KYM Weaver looks set for the world Hotrod finals after a thrilling day of racing at Hednesford Hill Raceway.

The £25,000 machines provided a bumper crowd with some great racing and also some high speed spins and crashes.

Hailsham’s Kym Weaver was out in the first heat of the day and with rain falling it was wet tyres for the Vauxhall Tigra. Weaver once again showed how well the “Green Machine” handles in the wet by driving to an excellent second place.

Heat two with no rain and the track drying saw the drivers switch to slicks.

A good start saw Weaver make his way up to third right behind the leading cars, and looking good for more points, only to be hit from behind and sent spinning out by 39 Terry Hunn who was docked two places for contact.

The final was a very hard fought race with most of the 30 cars trying to get as many points as they can so as to be in the top 20 points chart.

Weaver made his way up to a seventh finish and picked up 37 points.

Kym is eighth in the Championship and on course for a group two and a fourth row grid place in the world final.

But with two rounds left Weaver will be trying to improve on that position.
