Tonight marks the final meeting of an action packed season at Wimbledon that has seen exciting and thrilling racing every week, and no little amount of controversy and incidents along the way.

Spedeworth Motorsports presents four different formulas across this evening’s entertainment, and headlining the card are the 1300cc stock cars competing for the English Championship.

When they last raced, more than 30 cars took to the track, and put on a stunning show of how the 1300cc stock cars can steal the spotlight if given the opportunity.

New Malden’s Brendon Herve and Andy Cullen from Leatherhead will both be looking to close out the season with a win on their home track.

The season finale at Wimbledon Raceway is also the grand final of the Refine Metals Banger League, that has seen a large amount of smashing and crashing among the full on racing.

Favourite: Title chaser Mark Pope in action in the Refine Metals Banger League

Sussex driver Mark Pope has topped the table from the first week, and is odds on favourite to finish the competition in pole position.

The capital’s Keith Conlon was in strong contention for long parts of the season, but has fallen away in recent weeks.

This leaves multi-champion Rob Haines as the only realistic challenger for the title at this late stage.

Hot on the heels of Pope, Haines is determined to snatch the championship under the lights.

The powerful Superstox return to Plough Lane in the knowledge that this meeting is the last chance for them to try and get the car set-up right before they return on October 5 for the 2014 World Championship - the biggest Superstox meeting of the year. 

Tonight, the Superstox race in round three of the Safari Land Rover Engineering Challenge Series.

Early pace setter Jason "Super" Cooper, will be keen to continue his great form, and enhance his position as the series leader.

While Cooper did not win the meeting final last time out, he did amass enough points across the evening’s racing to head the pack.

Rounding off the final fixture at Wimbledon this season are the rookie rods, a formula that has featured heavily in the capital this season.

The popular non-contact budget racers have had a host of well-supported meetings across the Stadium’s winter fixtures.

With so many drivers wishing to compete in this class, the entry list was fully booked up over two weeks ago.

Tonight's fFirst race starts at 5.30pm, and for more information, go to spedeworth.co.uk.
