Donington’s Mark Sargent experienced mixed fortunes in his BriSCA Formula Two Stock Car at the Norfolk Arena, King’s Lynn, on Saturday.

He was involved in a battle for the lead in his heat, eventually finishing a strong fourth.

But after running second in the meeting final, which was punctuated by a number of caution periods, he slipped back down the order before retiring.

Sutton St James’ Carl Issitt had to rely on a second chance to make the final, qualifying via a fourth place in the consolation race, before his night also ended in retirement from the main event.

Holbeach Drove-based former British Touring Car racer Aaron Williamson endurd a difficult track debut, which included a hefty visit to the fence in the consolation race.

Bolton’s Barry Goldin won the feature final to extend his lead in the track championship standings, with Issitt slipping to seventh.

The Chevrolet V8-engined BriSCA Formula One Stock Cars event saw track specialist Mick Sworder of Stevenage won the meeting final, before world champion Tom Harris claimed the traditional closing race, the Grand National.

This weekend’s action comes on Bank Holiday Monday (1pm).

Spalding racer Suzanne Lambe will contest the Lady Bangers British Championship, while Simon Chapman will be in action in the 1500cc National Bangers race on the figure-of-eight layout which is sure to provide plenty of thrills and spills.
