Paul Bradby Wins at The Players-The Rematch
Following the success of inaugural ‘The Players’ race in March this 2009, the entrepreneurial Worksop club were keen to return with a bigger and better event for the start of the 2009/10 indoor season, thus was born The Players, The Rematch.
The event this time around is run to a slightly different format; racing is open to 144 drivers (72 drivers in each class), who all compete in three rounds of qualifying, after which the top 24 drivers in each class will move into a seperate ‘Elite’ division and the remaining 48 in each class to the ‘open players’ event. This ‘cut’ would be decided by 3 rounds of conventional qualifying on Saturday morning, with the best 2 rounds to count. 2wd and 4wd races will be held on both days.
The players races (reedy) style means that every run is a race for position and points – 1 point for a first and so on. Each driver will have 6 races in each class with the best 4 scores to count.
