Wisbech drivers Stott and Skeels look to shine at BriSCA opener
This weekend’s racing action at the Adrian Flux Arena, King’s Lynn (Saturday, 5.30pm) is headlined by the country’s first BriSCA Formula One Stock Car meeting of 2016.
The V8-engined beasts with unlimited power will be bursting into life to make the earth shake at the venue voted to have staged the best race of 2015. Completing the action are the ever-popular Two-Litre Saloon Stock Cars and Ministox.
Heading the Formula One entry of around 40 cars is Norwich driver Mat Newson, track champion for the last two years. The line-up also includes Yorkshire-based former world champions Paul Harrison and the hugely popular Frankie Wainman Jr. Mick Sworder (Cambridgeshire) is sure to thrill the crowds, while Mark Sargent (Spalding) is another known for his entertainment value.
Wisbech-based drivers Max Stott and Marcus Skeels will look to bring the strong form they showed at Mildenhall last weekend into the Two-Litre Saloon Stock Car races. Each scored a top-three finish in their heats. The pair, along with Marcus’s older brother Ollie, Thomas Parrin and Jake Swann (March) will all be eligible for the British Under-25 Championship being staged at Lynn the following weekend, and so will be looking for some good form to take into that. Wayne Cottrill Jr and Richard Smith are further Wisbech racers who will be in action in the class.
The under 16s in Ministox regularly serve up racing as close and exciting as their senior counterparts. Catherine Harris (Oxfordshire), Charlie Sworder (Cambs) and Finn Sargent (Spalding) are among the frontrunners.
