Mickel Makes a Return to Superstox After Three Decades!

At 47 years old, Mickel has given in to years of temptation to return to this lively formula.

Between 1987 and 1992, Mickel made quite a name for himself as a front runner in the series but how will he get on 30 years later?

John Mickel said “I have always loved Superstox and it remains strong in my heart so its very nice to make a return into a formula with a lot of very talented young drivers. I am hoping they will be kind to me!”

Mickel takes young blood with him. Luke Simmons from Lingfield is age 16, and will be driving #251. Luke begins his Superstox journey after two years in Junior Rods.

Their first meeting will be May 5th at Ipswich and, although they don’t plan to attend the full calendar, they will be hopeful to drive in a number of rounds in 2018.

Mickel retains his famous #4 and will be honouring his UK National Legends partnership with K-Seal as his sponsor.
