Spalding driver Nick Houghton aims to provide plenty of on-track fireworks at King’s Lynn’s Norfolk Arena on Saturday.

The meeting, which gets under way at 6pm, will be followed by the biggest fireworks display ever seen at the venue but Houghton is also determined to produce an explosive display.

He competes in the Bangers, piloting one of his favourite Triumphs, while Simon Goodale will be at the wheel of a BMW.

The big Saloon Stock Cars have their final outing of the season at the Saddlebow Road venue and will be contesting the track’s White & Yellow Grade Series Final for the rising stars and lesser lights of the sport.

The leading qualifier is Spalding’s Tom Yould, who recently secured the equivalent title at Mildenhall in Suffolk, having only started in the formula just over two years ago.

Yould said: “I’m really looking forward to it.

“Mildenhall was a really good meeting for me and if I could do the same at Lynn, especially with it being my local track, it would make it even better.

“I’ve had a better year than last year and if I win the whites and yellows final it will be perfect.”

Moulton’s Jamie Clayton will be aiming to secure a top-three finish in the country’s most competitive track championship standings.

Last weekend’s racing saw an enormous field of Unlimited Bangers in action and Spalding’s Will Longford found it tough going, not making the finish in the 25-and-under Championship of Great Britain.
