Short oval racing drivers from the Spalding area will be in action at King’s Lynn’s Adrian Flux Arena on Saturday (6pm) when three stock car and banger racing championship titles will be on the line.
The crowd-pleasing micro bangers contest their UK Championship final while the title of King of the Fens is up for grabs in the two-litre (non-Mondeo) bangers and two-litre saloon stock cars compete for the Bumper Trophy.
Holbeach racers Kevan and Liam Barton are always in the thick of the action in micro bangers and the same can be said for Long Sutton’s Nathan Lake and Spalding-based Ricky Ivatt.
Perhaps more likely to pick up entertainers awards than race wins, nonetheless they will be looking to play a big part in the destiny of the UK Championship title – even if that means securing a place on the grid via the last-chance qualifier.
The hard-hitting action served up by the two-litre saloon stock cars is second to none with large turnouts and excellent racing at each meeting.
With additional prize money funded by generous sponsorship, the Bumper Trophy has attracted an excellent field including a few newcomers.
Super-fast Jamie Clayton (Moulton) will be among the favourites for success on his return after a quiet season.
Simon Venni (Sutton St James) should also challenge for the title, having been in excellent form in recent weeks, including placing second in the driver of the year championship race.
Robert Heanes (Holbeach) and Tom Yould (Spalding) will also be in action.
