In-form Wisbech 2L Stock Car drivers Jacob Downey and Max Stott continued their winning streak at King’s Lynn on Saturday night with another selection of great performances which saw both drivers take the chequered flag once again.

Stott took the honours in the opening White & Yellows race and looked on course for a win in the second heat of the meeting proper until he was overhauled by Downey in the later stages – Stott still held on for second place.

The performances of Max and Jacob are guaranteed to see an elevation up the grades but, with the new grades not set to come into play until May, expect to see both drivers scoring heavily until then.

As well as his heat win Jacob also recorded a third place finish in the meeting final which was won by World Champion Simon Welton with Stott coming home in the final just behind Jacob in fourth.

Aston Gibbons (Wisbech) put in a great drive in the 1500cc Banger White Top race when he was battling for the lead and eventually had to finish in second to Ashlun Woods (Fakenham).

Helen Licquorice (Wisbech) put in some very aggressive drives in the Lady Bangers and was rewarded with two top three finishes in her heats. Caroline Garner (Wisbech) also had a second place in one of the heats whilst Kerry Ann Cunningham (Wisbech) was the best local finisher in the final, coming home in fourth. Laura Bulldeath (Wisbech) had some great performances.

The formula they know as “The Big League” returns to the Adrian Flux Arena on Saturday night with the first performance of the season of the F1 Stock Cars. All of the top drivers are set to be in action including world champion Frankie Wainman and Daz Kitson (March).

A massive entry of over 70 cars is booked in for the F2 Stock Cars with world champ Wim Petters (Netherlands), part of a Dutch invasion, making his first appearance on UK soil this year. Local hopes will be pinned on David Polley (Manea), Henry King and Bradley Blyth (both Wisbech).
