TWO brothers will battle it out in the Warton Stockcar Championships in Cumbria on Sunday.
Great Harwood's Glen and Jason Lord are out to beat each other in this "no rules" event and both stand a great chance of victory, starting on the second row of the grid.
"Jason thinks he will beat me and he says it is definitely his year," smiled Glen who, along with his brother, has gone through 11 rounds to qualify for Sunday's championships. He finished in fourth place with Jason just behind in fifth.
Glen, 48, does have the experience on his side as he was crowned Stockcar Champion in 1996 and he has enjoyed a good season with an overall victory in the Stars and Stripes event in Cumbria in July.
Engineer Jason, 35, has also had a couple of wins in the qualifying rounds and both are geared up for the event in their self-built cars.
"Basically it is anything goes," said lifeguard Glen, who has got a Formula Two car with a Ford 200 horsepower engine while Jason has a Buick, with a 300 horsepower engine.
"There are 30 cars and it is 15 laps and it is first to the finish and you just knock anyone out of your way. There are no rules!
"It is unlimited engine sizes so it is a real battle.
"It is going to be competitive for me and Jason as it is the first time both of us have been so far up the grid.
"The favourite, who has picked up most points so far in qualifying, is Dan Wrennall but it just depends on the day."
The winner, as well as receiving a big trophy, also gets the honour of having a silver roof on their car for next year - although it does mean they have to start the qualifying sessions from the back of the field.
"Jason and I have had a red roof this year which means we also have to start near the back and it is a case of knocking your way through but we have done okay.
"We haven't had any bad accidents - just one of our cars turned upside down this year and it wasn't me!"
There are more brothers in the competition, with leader Dan competing against Lee Wrennal and the Fawcett and Harris brothers also in action against each other.
The start is at 12 and look at www.Wartononline.com for more information.
