King’s Lynn race circuit hosts special meeting to celebrate 40-year career of Fenland driver





There will be plenty of Fenland race fans at King’s Lynn on Saturday as Trackstar celebrates the 40-year career of Wisbech 1300 stock car driver John Moat.

Moat has been a stalwart in Oval Racing for more than four decades – a truly amazing achievement – and is still at the top of his game.

In the 1300 Stock Car British Championship back in May, Moat was battling for the win for several laps, eventually coming home in fifth place.

The meeting will contain a special race titled Moat’s Old Skool Throwback, which is open to drivers using cars like Starlets and Novas which used to dominate the formula.

These drivers can then use the cars in the main meeting or swap back to their more modern steeds.

As well as the 1300 stock cars, racing also comes from the 2L stock cars with the meeting including the ladies' race which has raced thousands of pounds for charity over the years.

Drivers will be raising money for Cancer Research this year.

The 2L Bangers will compete in their annual “War of the Worlds” team competition, open to teams of up to six cars and double up as the final 2L Banger World qualifier.
