Spalding’s Jamie Clayton was in top form in the mighty saloon stock cars at King’s Lynn on Saturday, winning the final in style.

With rain forecasted, Clayton had been unsure whether to travel and then decided to sit out the first heat after a downpour just before it started.

“I don’t like the wet stuff,” he admitted. “I didn’t do the first race and I was going to load up and go home but then the rain stopped,” he added, clearly relieved that he had stayed.

This weekend, it is the turn of the BriSCA Formula Two Stock Cars. The entry includes Holbeach Drove-based former British Touring Car racer Aaron Williamson, as well as Holbeach’s Steve Wycherley, a winner at the track already this year.

The actions starts at 5.30pm on Saturday, but it is Banger racing, team-style, that takes centre stage.

Both 1500cc Bangers and Lady Bangers will be contesting their East Anglian Team Championship titles.

Teams of four (three for the ladies) line up but while most teams will comprise drivers looking to win races, others will be attempting to remove the opposition.

Spalding duo Harvey Devall Jnr and Kevan Barton compete for the Disastra team alongside Holbeach’s Tom Lee. Meanwhile, Paul Lambe is in the Bad Intentions squad.

Spalding pair Bridgett Woolley and Suzanne Lambe race for Bog Standard and Bad News respectively.
