Wisbech 2L Stock Car aces Tommy Parrin and Max Stott tackle Euro Championships at King’s Lynn
Local drivers were once again heavily involved in a big weekend of action at King’s Lynn when over 20 local stars were involved in two busy days of racing.
The highlight of the weekend was the 2L Stock Car European Championship which saw Tommy Parrin and Max Stott in action.
It was a nightmare night on Saturday for both drivers with neither getting any top places in the heats and, come the European Championship, both drivers had to start at the rear of the grid with the fancied runners having qualified well at the front.
In the end it was one of those fancied runners who took the title, with Dan Parker surviving a last bend attack from Diggy Smith to take the title. Highlight of the race for local fans was the barnstorming drive from Storr, who was last car on the 37 car grid and stormed through the pack to come home fourth.
Parrin had a better day on the Sunday with a fine fifth and sixth place finish in his heats, with Stott coming home in tenth place in the final.
The major event for the Bangers over the weekend was the 2L Banger World Final which saw James Licquorice, Jack Maryon, Stu Carman and Lee Barnes all on the grid as qualifiers following excellent 2019 campaigns in the formula.
Canterbury’s Jordan Cumming won the race with Licquorice the first local man home with a fantastic seventh place finish and James backed this up with a sixth place finish later in the day.
Several local stars were in action in the Old Skool FWD Bangers the previous night, when Licquorice was once again amongst the top ten in the heats, although Brad Wright was the best local finisher with a fourth place finish in his heat and James Ellis was the best local placeman in the final, which was won by Bletchingley’s Kieran Fry, by coming home in eighth place.
The 1300 Stock Cars were also in action on both days.
Both Scott and Simon Sparrow were in the places on Saturday night when London’s Lee Pearce won the final and Scott Sparrow was also in the places on Sunday as well.
Luke Leedell won the meeting final which was a race which saw Barty Ketteringham end up on his roof.
Stock car and banger racing return to King’s Lynn on June 22 when it is the all-Destruction Derby night for the National Bangers, with the 2L Stock Cars also back in action. The racing will also include the annual Veterans’ Race.
