--- In Gears And Tears EPISODE 4 (BBC1),[ check out the whole episode on
the i player ] . which ventured into the secret world of stock-car racing,
the bitter rivalry that stirred the blood is between the Wainmans and the
Smiths, a Yorkshire v Lancashire battle of the bangers passed down through
the generations. Could Frankie Wainman Jr wrestle back the crown from the
steering wheel of Andy Smith?
Now about that, I could care not a jot. There's something a bit bogus about
a 'world title' where everyone's British and it happens in Skegness. But
Gears And Tears was a diverting exploration of how obsessions can dominate
and motivate our lives. To a non-petrolhead, the appeal of stock cars,
which look a bit like pimped-up dodgems, was mystifying. Yet here were
people who lived and breathed it, spending every spare bit of cash on a
fresh bit of kit.
And the rivalry was Shakespearean in its construct, the women behind the
scenes stirring the pots and colluding in gossip, the menfolk sent out to
do battle. All it needs is for a daughter of the Wainman house to take a
shine to a scion of the Smith clan -- there's something about a lad in
greasy overalls with his head stuck under a bonnet -- and Gears And Tears
will have its own version of Romeo And Juliet's Montagues and Capulets
purring away in the pits. Rev it up.

of our on-board camera to Mr Rob Speaks #318 machine. Rob starts towards

to the front.

Brisca F1 Stock Car World Final 21-9-13 Harris Finnikin Harrison Wainman Speak Sworder Fairhurst
Brisca F1 Stock Car World Final 21-9-13.. 1/217 Lee Fairhurst starting on
Pole Position as he defends his title, leads the pack round on the rolling
lap, with one of the race favourites, 197 Ryan Harrison along side.. Row 2
saw 259 Paul Hines, and 84 Tom Harris.. Any of these 4 were to be
considered as the next World Champion.. Harrison powers away from the
outside, getting the drop as the green flag is thrown, 84 Tom Harris also
finding plenty of grip on the outside, storms straight onto Fairhurst in
his quest for glory.. Harris quickly moves into 2nd, going into turn3
Fairhurst moves in on Harris, but coming out of turn4, finds himself out of
shape, spinning out of contention.. 150 Mick Sworder was another one to
depart early after being jammed in a tangle on the home straight with USA12
Josh Pelkey.. Meanwhile, up front, Harrison is starting to open up a small
gap, with Harris appearing to throw himself into armaco, as he is carrying
so much speed in an attempt to catch Harrison.. Hines makes a move on
Harris, putting him wide, brushing the armaco yet again, just as the yellow
flags are shown.. Race order on the re-start sees Harrison leading the
field away, with Harris sat poised and perfectly placed in second, with
Hines third.. Harrison powers away as the green flag is shown once again,
with Harris following close behind.. 2 laps in, with Harrison going wide,
Harris sees his chance, ducks under Harrison in turn1/2, and powers into
the lead.. 55 Craig Finnikin slowly reels in Harrison, moving himself into
second.. A luckless Hines was to retire with damage after suffering brake
failure, something that blighted the Hines shale shifter early season..
Upfront, Tom Harris opened up a huge gap to the second place man, and
seemingly put on a masterclass drive when it mattered most.. 84 Tom Harris
was to take the win, becoming the Brisca F1 World Champion 2013, with 55
Craig Finnikin second, 197 Ryan Harrison taking third, 515 Frankie Wainman
Jnr from his row 11 start, taking fourth and 2 Paul Harrison rounding out
the top five..
Quote from Tom in the post-race interview.. 'A lot of people took the piss
when I built and debuted my new car earlier this year.. I only built it for
one reason, to win the World Final.. And tonight, i've just done that..'
Congratulations to 84 Tom Harris.. Brisca F1 World Champion 2013.. Enjoy
your Golden Year..
Brisca F1 Stock Car World Final Kings Lynn 2009 Smith Wainman Harrison Gentlemen Start Your Engines
Brisca F1 Stock Car World Championship 2009. Frankie Wainman Jnr leads the
pack from Pole Position, with defending World Champion Andy Smith starting
alongside. After briefly keeping Smith high and wide, Wainman Jnr gets abit
out of shape, giving Smith a chance to break free. Wainman Jnr then starts
to loose ground and slips down the order. Stu Smith Jnr came through into
second, and looked like he was going to take the challenge to elder brother
Andy. However, Smith Jnr's charge was brought to a swift halt after
tangling with backmarker 502 Ricky Wilson, which saw both spin onto the
infield... Smith having a clear track went on to claim his 4th World Title,
with Wainman Jnr fighting back to take the runner-up spot. Paul Harrison
looked to have a fairly incident free race to claim third, Mark Gilbank an
excellent 4th from his Row8 start, and Craig Finnikin rounding out the top
5. Smith celebrates his win a with a few doughnuts, and to prove World
Champions do makes mistakes now and again, promptly punts himself into the

Brisca F1 Stock Car Racing 2012 World Final Fairhurst Johnson Wainman Harris Smith Sworder Finnikin
Skegness 15-9-12. The 2012 World Championship from Skegness Stadium. Many
Congratulations to the 2012 World Champion 217 Lee Fairhurst. Having
qualified only for the big race an hour or so before, Fairhurst started at
the back of the grid Starting at the rear of the grid wasn't a disadvantge
this time, as second placed man 4 Dan Johnson also started from the rear of
the pack. Only 515 Frankie Wainman Jnr survived from the front, and
generally more favoured place to be. Pre-race favourites such as 84 Tom
Harris, 150 Mick Sworder and defending World Champion all went out in the
destructive event. 318 Rob Speak's race was to end when rolling in turns 1
and 2, where all the action appeared to take place.
