Entertainment galore as Fenland drivers triumph
James Licquorice and Kieran Bowman both piled on the National Banger Entertainer points at King’s Lynn on Saturday with savage displays.
Both are currently battling at the top of the entertainer charts and the pair put on fantastic shows as they displayed incredible efforts to compete in all three National Banger formulas on the night.
With both intent on causing the maximum amount of damage, and being in the hunt for entertainer trophies, they both kept their hard working pit crews at full stretch.
Bowman picked up an entertainer award in all three classes, while Licquorice was close to picking up an entertainer award in the Micro Bangers and the 2L Bangers.
Kieran’s brother Brad also took home an entertainer award for a crushing head on shot with Licquorice in the Micro Bangers while Ryan Bartam’s willingness to get involved in the on-track action saw him rewarded in the 1500cc Bangers.
Sixteen-year-old Lennie Murkin competed in what will be his last meeting as a white top as he took another victory in the 1500cc Bangers, just coming out on top in a race-long duel with Dan Clarke in the opening heat.
Licquorice also came home in eighth place in that race.
Following that, Murkin was second in his second heat whilst Brad Bartram’s 10th was the best local finish in the final, won by Callum Gill.
The Junior Bangers completed the action with a special meeting for white and yellow grade drivers.
Katelyn Parrin was the star of the show as she took her debut win in the opening heat after battling throughout the race with brother Rhys, who came home in second place.
Rhys claimed he let his sister win in the post race interview - but soon changed his mind!
Jade Ellis had a good fifth place in the opening race before crashing out while battling for the lead in the final with Diss driver Mikey Whitehall.
Sophie Clarke also had some good placings including sixth in the second heat.
Kiera Downey also placed in the top ten in both her heats before spectacularly crashing out in the final in an incident which saw her end up in her roof!
Racing returns to King’s Lynn on Sunday, July 4 where the National Bangers return to a golden era of racing with Pre-75 Banger racing. The Junior Bangers will also be back in action.
