THE NO-COPS CRUISE @ THE WHEELS
After meeting at lakeside
Thurrock services at 5.45pm one of the many convoy points across the
country me and Ben met up with other people who were up for the
At 6.00pm we was ready to leave
but had one small problem…we had no convoy leader. This was a major
problem as the only people who knew the exact location of the cruise
were the convoy leaders. The only information we had was M6 –
Junction 6 and that was it.
Lucky one of the others who were
in our convoy was in contact with one of the people who were
organising the cruise. He explained that the convoy leader had not
turned up and it was 6.30pm. He then received a text message on his
phone; we now had the full location details we were off.
When we finally got into
Birmingham and the directions were not making any sense. As we were
turning round in the road on of the filth stopped us and we thought
“here we go” but surprisingly enough he knew what we were there for
and gave us the directions to where we were going. He gained my
respect not everyday the filth helps you out; they must be a
different breed up there.
At 8.30pm and after 2 hours of
solid driving we finally arrive at the wheels raceway.
When we arrived we found the
track full with cars so we parked up and decided to take a walk.
After we had walked round the track taking in what the night had to
offer we found ourselves in the centre and that was then we saw some
of our first action.
We saw our first donut of the
night by a front wheeled car as he was using trays under the back
wheel and putting the hand break on it looked impressive and spun
well. When he open the boot he made an even greater impression with
the I.C.E install it was very loud trust me.
He then decided to do the famous
burnout and with a female passenger he smoked them both out but this
idiot with the hat on had caught something he did not expect.
This Cosworth decided to try his
luck and as you can see from the first picture there was lots of
rubbish on the track including the trays from earlier. As he gave it
large with the donut debris was being flung everywhere by the rear
wheels of this monster. I managed to get a stone in the ankle but
remember that idiot with the hat....yep he copped it he came of
worse than me as he got a wheel nut right in the side of his head.
Lucky he was wearing that stupid hat.
This BMW gave a nice display and
some smoke but its not everyday that you see a perfect set of round
tyre marks left after a donut.
Me, Ben, Stephanie & Jodie
decided to grab a burger and returned to find cars parading around
the track with lots on show including some females showing all their
bits off. Due to Me & Ben not being at the ready we did not get any
snaps but Iam lead to believe that Steve has them on video. As we
looked on as cars passed us Me & Steph was standing talking to Steve
as Ben took Jo for a drive.
Cars started to leave the track
and there was only a few cars left and two BMW's decided to have a 1
on 1 round the track these guys did not hang about the cars we
sideways round the corners but the marshals soon wanted to put an
end to it so they sent two banged up cars?? well I don't even know
what they were out on the track to stop them but they carried on
until one of them pulled out in front of one of the BMW's, and it
looked like there was going to be a punch up but it all died down.
I wanted some fun so decided to
do some handbrake turns and Ben joined in by racing round the track
and we decided to race each other you are laughing at this point a
Clio & pulsar racing each other well we did and guess what yes he
did beat me not surprising really. We left the track and on the way
out there was some gravel Ben want some more fun 4wd pulsar + Gravel
= Playtime. Ben threw dust into the air as he done a donut I enjoyed
watching from a distance.
We had a long drive ahead of us
and we all know that you don't go to a cruise and have no problems
and this was no exception. As we were coming down the M1 Bens clutch
decided to go on him and we were stranded at the Newport Pagnell
services, We could not believe his luck first the MR2 now this. I
waited around until I knew a recovery vehicle was coming and Ben
sent me home. We arrived back at Gillingham at 5.15am after dropping
my sister at Maidstone. What a night.
I Spoke to Ben the following
day and he did not get back home until 8.30am and £500 lighter in
On behalf of Midnight-Racing I
would like to thank the people who made the NO-Cops cruise possible
as it was a well organised event and a good night out. Good Job.
