Pinchbeck stock car driver Dan Booth made a dream return to racing as the season started at King’s Lynn’s Adrian Flux Arena on Saturday night.

The multiple former champion started two races in the 1300cc Stock Cars, winning one and placing second in the other.

There were 50 cars in action, competing for the Clive Grief Memorial Trophy, requiring the field to be split in half for the heats. In his race, Booth scythed through from the back of the grid on a wet track to take the win in his smart new car.

In the main event, Booth was closing in on the race leader but was delayed by a backmarker and ran out of laps to challenge, having to settle for second.

The Formula Two world championship qualifying round saw Sutton St James’ Carl Issitt make an excellent start on the road to gold. He came second in his heat and third in the final.

James Waterfall (Gedney Hill) recorded three top-six finishes while Steve Wycherley (Holbeach) came third in his heat.

In the Two-Litre Saloon Stock Cars, Tom Yould (Spalding) placed third in the consolation, while Simon Venni (Sutton St James) managed seventh in the main event.
