Ace has nothing to show after putting up spirited and entertaining drive at Adrian Flux Arena


By Pete Woodhouse


Wisbech F2 Stock Car driver Bradley Blyth was disappointedly left with nothing to show after putting up a spirited and entertaining drive in the F2 Stock Car Final at the season opener which took place at King’s Lynn’s Adrian Flux Arena last Saturday (March 2).

Blyth showed how quick he was earlier in the meeting when he qualified for the meeting final with a fine third place in his heat.

In the final he looked like he was destined for even better things. He hit the front in the early stages and survived a couple of restarts which closed up the field to once again move away at the head of the pack.

Towards the latter part of the race he was caught by some of the higher graded drivers but he robustly defended his position and used the front bumper fantastically to send anyone who dared to go past him into the fence. Unfortunately with a few laps remaining he ended up tangling with some other cars and crashed out hard and failed to complete the distance.

Blyth was joined in the final by fellow Wisbech driver Ollie Skeels who placed in eighth place in the same heat as Blyth and then went on to produce a good drive in the final to complete the distance in sixth place. Sheffield’s Daniel Ford went home with maximum world qualifying points with a great heat and final double.

Tommy Parrin was in action in the 2L Stock Cars and he had a seventh place finish in the opening White and Yellows race to show for his efforts – Luke Grief won his father Clive Grief’s memorial for the second year running with a great drive in the 2L Stock Cars whilst Dean Moat was the best local performer in the 1300 Stock Cars with a fine third place in his heat whilst Scott Sparrow was also in the points with a sixth place finish in his heat.

Stock Car and Banger Racing returns to King’s Lynn on 16 March when the 1300 Stock Cars are back in action with racing also coming from the 2L Bangers, 1500cc Bangers and Junior Bangers in a meeting which is already fully booked with competitors.
