This Saturday sees the 2017 Motorsport News Thunder 500 meeting at Foxhall Heath Stadium, Ipswich and a very special action-packed race meeting in the Foxhall ‘bowl’.
Foxhall Stadium plays host to a feast of top class Stadium Motorsport.
The National Hot Rods are in town for their annual ‘shake down’ in preparation for their World Championship in a fortnight’s time, plus also the mighty, all action, and no-holds barred Brisca F1 Stock Cars and National Ministox are in action, to make for an evening of exciting motorsport.
The 24 National Hot Rods are fresh from their English World Championship Series Finale at Northampton a fortnight ago which saw the Series concluded with the title going to Kym Weaver, from Chris Haird and Jason Kew.
This week, there’s no World Qualifying points, it’s all about prestige and claiming that Motorsport News Trophy and testing the Foxhall tarmac in readiness for the World Championship and Spedeweekend which is not far away.

The mighty Brisca F1 Stock Cars are always a massive hit, literally, when they pay their annual visit to Foxhall on a track where they can unleash some of the immense power of their Chevrolet V8 Engines.
It’s a World Championship qualifier with 52 starters and F1 racing on Tarmac is always fast and frantic, Lee Fairhurst, Tom Harris, Dan Johnson, there’s so many quality star drivers in the Formula right now, chasing for that chequered flag.
