Higgins Takes Gold

Joe Higgins 229 Took the Victory in the Teng Tools 2018 Gold Top Final at Mildenhall Stadium. On what looked a fairly wet track Joe opted to set the Kart for dry and after a few hectic laps, one re-start and a Yellow flag caution he managed to work his way back to the front as the track dried a lot quicker than many predicted. 
Rob Key 528 took 2nd and Danny Nunn 295 3rd after being pushed half way down the field.

An excellent meeting for both the Juniors and seniors

Grindey Takes Gold

In only hisfirst season of Stoxkarts Racing 355 Aiden Grindey Took the Houghton JCB sponsored Junior Gold Top Final at a very wet Skegness Stadium. 

Despite the lack of wet meetings this year Aiden drove a master class of wet tarmac racing even pulling away from the more experianced drivers after a Yellow flag caution. It was a very exciting race with the favourites struggeling in the wet conditions.

The top 3 were 2 Finn Robinson. 21 Alex Butcher and 2018 Houghton JCB Gold Top Champion 355 Aiden Grindey.

Stoxkarts Racer Joe Higgins Wins V8 European Championship.

Stoxkarts Superstar 229 Joe higgins was offered a drive in a V8 Hotstox as a 21st Birthday gift from his Uncle Paul. When joe booked to race it was just a normal meeting but it then turned out they re-schedueld their Europen Championship for that day. 
Joe was hopeing he could get a couple of top 10 finnishes but what was to come was a dream. In heat 1 he manged to get a 3rd which was fantastic. Heat 2 he went one better with a second and heat 3 even better where he took the win. 

After that anything else would be a bonus! Joe was heighest points scorer and sat on pole for a closed grid European.

he lead from the off and was passed early by Steve Thompson but Joe had a go back the next bend, he hit Steve and Steves car died which put him back in the lead. With 5 to go Joe missed his braking point when lapping a back marker which let Michael Boswell through but Joe stuck with him even with a mirror full of flashing lights.
Going into theFinal turn Joe kept it on and did the perfect hit on michael moving him just enough to nip up the inside and take the win. 
To prove what an excellent feeder formula Stoxkarts is 3rd place man Jon Brown is also an ex Stoxkarts racer.

Congratulations to you both.

07-04-2018 Josh Rogers Memorial Meeting.

After a stressful hectic start to the day season 2018 kicked off in style at Birmingham Wheels. 
Lots of new faces in the pits and some nice looking paint jobs. A round of applause for Josh at the drivers meeting set the mood for the day.

Juniors Ht1 saw all the new drivers starting from the back. It was 257 Ben Limb who was first to show but he was being chased hard by 468 and 59. good clean racing from everyone saw 468 take the win from 257 and 59. First newcomer home was 355 Aiden Grindey with a fine drive up to 9th.
Heat 2 saw 355 going from the front and what a fine drive he put in, only being beaten by the Gold Top Champion 59. A superb drive too by 21 Alex Butcher taking 3rd.


Junior feature was a cracker, again Aiden 355 led the field but was then caught by 257. 468 lost several spots after attempting to shift 59 but getting it all wrong. there was a great battle between 59 and 21 which allowed 257 to just keep a gap and he went on to take the win!

Some great clean racing from the Juniors and very impressed with the new drivers who all did really well.

Again with the seniors a few new faces and again excellent racing all night. 
In heat 1 it was about 1 man. 4 Andrew Duddy was on a mission for team mate Josh. There was no one going to stop him. Andrew took the win with 71 second and 471 3rd. an excellent 4th for 810 Aimee Havercroft.

Heat 2 was a good battle with the Reds, the man who got the break though was 58 Dex Linden with Danny Nunn and Joe Higgins taking 2nd and 3rd.

The feature was hard fast racing, just as Josh would have liked it. Kelvin Limb made the break but was being chased hard by 58 and 4. A yellow flag stoppage for an 816 Marc Lawson roll saw a single file restart. Unfortunatly 4 Duddy slowed with mechanical issues and Kelvin opened up a useful lead. in 3rd it was 295 Danny Nunn, 2nd 58 Dex Linden and the winner of the Josh Rogers Memorial Trophy was 257 Kelvin Limb.

At the end of the race the drivers lined up on the infield as the drivers recieved their trophies from Joshs family and friends.

A massive thank you to Josh's Family and friends for coming to support us at this terrible time,I hope you feel we did Josh proud. A big thank you to Incarace as well for having their trophies engraved with Joshs name and for joining us on the centre in celebration of Joshs life. The lining up of the Karts was a fitting tribute and thank you Chev for suggesting it.
So although it was an emotive night, it was a great night and I am sure Josh would have loved it.

Race in Peace Josh.

04/04/2018 Season Opener Birmingham Wheels

Saturday is the season opener for both the Junior and Senior Stoxkarts. The seniors will be racing for the Josh Rogers Memorial Trophy which will certainly see the drivers putting in some extra effort in Josh's Memory. With lots of new drivers in both formulas it will be interesting to see who stands out at the first meeting.

21/03/2018.. #84 Josh Rogers.

It is with great sadness I have to report the passing of one of the Stoxkarts family.
Yesterday evening I was informed that Josh Rogers #84 had passed away at the age of 26.

Josh had a bone marrow transplant nearly 12 months ago and had a 12 month battle constantly in and out of hospital. 
Unfortunatly he succumbed to his illness yesterday.

I have passed on our condolences to his Dad Chris and the rest of the family on behalf of the Stoxkarts family.

It is almost impossible to think what they are going through right now, but his Dad did message to say at least he had the chance to live his dream and race.

Although Josh knew the battle he had to fight off the track he still managed to race the first meeting last year knowing it would be his last for a long time. He informed me at the end of the meeting about his illness. He went out and raced that day as if he did not have a care in the world.

Josh loved his racing, not just Stoxkarts, he was a massive F1 fan too. He hired a kart from us 5 years ago and went on to buy his own and become one of the H2O Team. He will most probably be remembered for his amazing roll at Northampton a couple of years ago. Only 3 weeks ago he offered to help out with the Stoxkarts website but a few days later he was admitted back into hospital where he finally lost his battle.

Following on from the fact that Josh was so determined to do the first meeting of the season last year I have decided that the first feature race every season will be dedicated to Josh and the winner of the race will recieve £84 prize money.

Josh was a lovely guy and a fighter to the end and he will be sorely missed.

Race in Peace Josh.

Winter Testing

Quite a few drivers have been out testing in the past couple of weeks. A new pedal set up is required for 2018 so quite a few have been seeing how the new modifications work for them. There have been test days at Birmingham, Northampton, Skegness, Buxton and Mendips which have all seen various drivers trying out their karts.


A great night was had by all at the annual presentation night held at Barston Lakes on Saturday 13th January. Firstly thank you to all the staff at Barston Lakes for their superb hospitality. Paul Higgins and Billy Higgins for getting the artwork and images designed and printed. Tina and Dennis for their organisation and Dave Goddard for comparing. The evening was a sell out and a great success. F1 Legend Paul Harrison was as expected a superb guest of honour and thankyou to him and wife Lindsey for attending. Paul certainly got into the party mood and as expected was one of the last to leave!
