After a five-week break, Spalding racers will be returning to action at King’s Lynn’s Adrian Flux Arena on Sunday for a packed afternoon of banger racing.

The popular annual Nutcracker event gets underway at 1pm when spectators are promised a big turnout of unlimited, 1500cc and junior bangers.

Amongst the 50-strong entry for the unlimited Nutcracker is experienced Spalding driver Simon Goodale and Paul Lambe who, judging by the action served up by the big cars at Halloween Carnival Night, should provide plenty of big crashes, thrills and spills.

Meanwhile, the 1500cc bangers contest their biggest title of the year, the National Championship, with nearly 70 cars expected to be in action.

Spalding’s Zane Gittins will be aiming to make the grid for the event through the last-chance qualifying race, as will Holbeach drivers Kevan Barton and Tommy Crawford.

Stars of the future will also be on show in the junior bangers, with Spalding pair Daniel Lambe (Paul’s son) and Lewis Ivatt seeking their first wins of the season.
