Wisbech driver James Licquorice has eyes on 2L Banger Entertainer League with King's Lynn Adrian Flux Arena success
Wisbech drivers put on a terrific display in their respective formulas at the Adrian Flux Arena on Saturday.
Bringing the biggest cheer was James Licquorice who was in sensational form in the 2L Bangers.
Licquorice has his eyes on the Entertainer League crown for this year and soon got some points on the board when he performed a high speed textbook follow in on Northampton’s James Cushion who rolled on impact.
Licquorice in the meeting final left the rest of the field standing as he roared to the chequered flag and could not resist celebrating his rated victory with a big hit.
Running mate Jack Maryon was also in the 2L Bangers as was Stu Carman and daring to be different with his BMW was Nathan Young. All three put in some great displays.
Success was also tasted in the 1500cc Bangers when Aston Gibbons took advantage of chaos in the final lap of the third heat which ended up with a big fire for one of his rivals. Gibbons had been battling at the head of affairs with Norwich’s James Blything who crashed out in the final lap chaos, so Gibbons took the chequered flag.
Gibbons backed up his fine victory with a fifth place finish in the final which also saw Kieran Gray finish in fourth and James Ellis come home in sixth. Ellis also had top ten places in his two heats.
Dan Wright and Lee Barnes in the 1500cc Bangers were rewarded with an entertainer award for their superb efforts.
Lennie Murkin took the flag in the second heat of the Junior Bangers – just finishing ahead of fellow Wisbech flyer Louie Cottrill who was the best local finisher in the final which was won by Leicester’s Harvey Latkowski coming home in seventh place.
Karl Morris was the best local performer in the 1300 Stock Cars with a sixth place finish in his heat and the final. Other local drivers Lee Green, Barty Ketteringham and John Klyn did not get the rub of the green.
Racing is scheduled to take place at King’s Lynn on Saturday with the national debut of the F1 Stock Cars but the fixture will be dependent upon Government advice so stay tuned to the Trackstar website and social media.
