A CLUTCH of South Holland racers will be competing in the biggest unlimited banger team event of the year this weekend.

‘The Icebreaker‘ takes place at the King’s Lynn’s Norfolk Arena on Sunday (noon).

The event has been fully booked for months and sees the top teams in the UK coming to do battle, with more than 160 unlimited bangers will be in action.

Spalding’s Simon Goodale will once again be leading ‘Team Bad News’ into action, with a team which promises something special in the material department.

Will Longford is another in action.

Following several promising displays in the limited cc bangers, it will be something of a baptism of fire as he makes his unlimited debut.

Another team with local representation is the ‘Mill Green Mafia’, which comprises of Nick Houghton (Pinchbeck), Jamie Clayton (Spalding), Grant McGill and Tony Lowther.

They may only be occasional racers in bangers, but there is a wealth of both talent and experience in this team – with Houghton having been an accomplished performer in F1 and Saloon Stock Cars and Clayton being a top Saloon Stocker of the current era.

The team are always smartly presented and could deliver strong results if they get the right breaks.

Elsewhere, Dan Jackson makes his debut in this event and will be racing for ‘The Predators’ for the first time.
