Spalding driver Tom Yould claimed the Two-Litre Saloon Stock Car Bumper Trophy at King’s Lynn’s Adrian Flux Arena – the biggest success of his career to date.

The 24-year-old, who was fourth and seventh in his heats, relieved newcomer James Dexter of the lead on lap three then had to endure a caution period two laps 
later with the field queuing up behind him.

Two lapped drivers in quick cars initially provided a buffer to the chasing pack and allowed Yould to pull clear so that when they unlapped themselves he had plenty in hand, eventually winning by half a second from Cambridgeshire driver Jake Swann and King’s Lynn-based British champion Lee Sampson.

Next on Yould’s agenda will be when he looks at winning the White & Yellow Series Final for the formula which takes place at King’s Lynn on October 31.

There were also two classes of banger racing in action at King’s Lynn on Saturday.

The micro bangers were contesting their UK Championship while the King of the Fens title was on offer for Two-Litre (non-Mondeo) Bangers.

Spalding’s Ricky Ivatt was well involved in the action in the micro bangers but it was Ashley Garrod (Swaffham) who claimed the UK crown.

Wisbech racer Ryan Leeks was crowned King of the Fens in the larger cars, heading hometown driver Shaun Clarke in their big race.

Four-wheeled racing action at the Adrian Flux Arena returns on October 24 when the BriSCA Formula One Stock Cars will becontesting an end-of-season Shoot Out round, joined by BriSCA Formula Two Stock Cars for their Grand National Championship.
