Spalding racers Robert Heanes and Dan Booth will contest the opening round of the 2-litre saloon stock car season at the Norfolk Arena,

King’s Lynn on Saturday night (6pm) with the Clive Grief Memorial Trophy up for grabs.

Heanes will be looking to continue the form he showed in the track’s last meeting of 2013, when he finished second in the final.

Booth, meanwhile, will aim to build on a promising debut year in the formula, which included a race win at King’s Lynn. He will be hoping for more in his sophomore season.

Booth stepped up from the smaller 1300cc stock cars, which will also be contesting their own version of the Clive Grief Memorial Trophy.

Derived from road-going hatchbacks, these cars have proved to be the ideal training ground for drivers looking to progress to the heavyweight two litre division.

Ben Yould is another Spalding driver racing in this class.

Action also comes from Europe’s largest stock car category, BriSCA Formula Two.

Around 80 drivers are expected to compete in super-fast specialist machinery, in the category’s first World Championship qualifying round of the season. Amongst them will be perennial entertainer Barry Clow.

Multiple race winner Carl Issitt makes his return to the category, while Justin Parker, Mark Sargeant (both Spalding) and Steve Wycherley (Holbeach) are in action.
