Spalding’s Will Longford is among the leading entries as one of the banger racing highlights of the local scene comes to the Norfolk Arena, King’s Lynn this weekend.

The 11th staging of the ‘Bandit Memorial’, in memory of former racer Michael ‘Bandit’ Bailey, is part of a full weekend of action.

Racing kicks off at 6pm on Saturday before the memorial meeting itself takes place on Sunday (1pm).

King of the Fens winner Longford will be joined by fellow Spalding driver Simon Chapman, a race winner at the track earlier this year.

Completing Sunday’s programme will be the all-action saloon stock cars where new European champion David Aldous heads the entry.

The field includes Moulton’s Jamie Clayton, who came seventh in the Suffolk-staged European title event last weekend.

Simon Venni of Sutton St James led that race at one stage before retiring. He will also be in action, alongside Tom Yould (Spalding) and Andi Newman (Gosberton).

A packed programme of racing on Saturday features three banger racing classes – micro bangers, lady bangers and junior bangers – complemented by 1300cc stock cars and the second appearance of the modstox formula.

Spalding racers Suzanne Lambe and Bridgett Woolley will be among those competing for honours.
