Wisbech aces head for Summer Carnival Night
A packed month of stock car and banger racing action at King’s Lynn’s Adrian Flux Arena begins with two days of racing this weekend (Saturday, 5pm; Sunday, 1pm).
There is a massive entry of cars for Saturday’s Summer Carnival Night, headlined by the Unlimited Bangers Pre-1985 ‘Big Reunion’ and also featuring qualifying for the Two-Litre Saloon Stock Car National Championship, plus three-wheeled racing in the shape of Reliant Robins.
Then on Sunday, the Saloon Stock Cars contest their National Championship Final and Steve Newman Memorial, and are joined by 1300cc Stock Cars and Two-Litre (non-Mondeo) Bangers.
Saturday night’s banger racing sees nearly 100 pre-1985 classic cars booked to race. Leading drivers will travel from across the country to take on the likes of Wisbech trio Rob Taylor, the returning Julian Watson and Nicky Young.
Young will return on Sunday, when he will be joined in the bangers by Wisbech drivers Dave Bonnett, Shaun Hill and Jake Smith. Roy Gedge and Peter Graham will be racing Reliant Robins, while Wisbech drivers in the 1300cc stock cars include Kevin McClagish and brothers Simon and Scott Sparrow.
Banger racing superstar Wayne Cottrill Jr will make his Two-Litre Saloon Stock Car debut this weekend, while Three Holes-based brothers Ollie and Marcus Skeels could be outside bets to spring a surprise in the National Championship itself.
