Two-litre Saloon Stock Cars stole the show on a packed programme of racing at King’s Lynn’s Adrian Flux Arena on Saturday night, with a very large entry serving up five spectacular races.

Local drivers tasted success at the event.

The 35-car final proved to be a thriller, with action all around the raceway. Wisbech driver Max Stott twice rode the fence in an apparent wall-of-death routine, while Dereham’s Craig Barnett tangled with Cambridgeshire driver Carl Waterfield in a big way, their cars rolling in unison.

The race boiled down to a battle between World Champion David Aldous (Diss) and Norwich racer Simon Welton. The pair passed and re-passed, with Welton eventually prevailing when Barnett’s crash led to an early chequered flag.

Earlier, heat wins went to Wes Starmer (Wisbech), Aaron Morris (Berkshire) and Billy Smith (Diss) on the debut of his new car.

Proceedings were completed with an all-comers race, won by Cambridgeshire driver Sid Madgwick.
