Richard in Euro defence

Emneth 1300 Stock Car star Richard Hampshire had the perfect preparation for the 1300 Stock Car European Championship which takes place at the Norfolk Arena on Saturday (6pm) with his best performance of the season at Coventry last weekend where he stormed to a heat and final double.

Other local drivers include John Moat and his sons Dean and Shane (all Wisbech) together with Ady Wales (Emneth), Stephen Stovin (March) and Jonny Pearce.

Also in action are the annual 25 & Under Championship of Great Britain, where Nathan Young (Elm) and the impressive Ryan Leeks (Wisbech) will feature. Racing in the other events are Nathan’s brother Nicky Young; and in The 2L Banger Non Mondeo a rare outing by Andrew Lack plus Jamie Johns (both Wisbech).
