26th September 1992 - Ringwood - Southern Championship

At what may well be the Midgets' last meeting at Ringwood for some time, last year's best newcomer John Calladine returned to the form that earned him the title, winning the Southern Championship for 1992, undefended in the rare absence of Harry Sayell. Supporting heat wins went to John Weston and up and coming star driver John Salter.

Calladine, having not qualified for the prestigious event which was sponsored by ICI Autocolour for the first time, started at the back of the field and having diced for most of the race with Salter managed to pass Retchless on the final bend after the latter had gained an early lead from the blue grade. Pooley finished fourth with Ron Elliott's immaculate Fireball fifth.

This event followed the formulae Inter Club Challenge event at Northampton two weeks earlier, also sponsored this time by Joseph Mason Paints. The event saw another newcomer in the results with Roy Taylor running the Hoosier Tyres Dastle narrowly missing a hat trick when spinning out in the final. Much to spectators' delight the event also saw ex-World Champion Basil Craske come out of retirement to race current World Champion Harry Sayell's VW Beetle. Basil spun whilst leading, finally finishing third, and was unable to catch John Salter in the front-engined Fireball.

Southern Championship: 1st John Calladine, 2nd Marcus Retchless, 3rd John Salter
