After a few weeks off from racing at their nearest track, South Holland’s stock car and banger racing drivers will be back in action at the Adrian Flux Arena, King’s Lynn, on Saturday (5.30pm).
Headlining the event is the Bandit Memorial for both Unlimited and Two-Litre Bangers, held in memory of Wisbech driver Michael ‘Bandit’ Bailey.
But a stronger presence from the South Holland area comes in the BriSCA Formula Two Stock Cars which contest a World of Shale championship qualifying round.
Sutton St James driver Carl Issitt heads the local entry.
The 45-year-old is in fine form, currently joint-third in the King’s Lynn track championship.
He was also a race winner at Mildenhall in Suffolk last weekend, taking the flag in his heat before placing fourth in the final.
Another who went well in that meeting is Holbeach’s Steve Wycherley who was seventh in the final, having come home fourth in his heat.
Joining Wycherley and Issitt on track will be Barry Clow (Spalding), Justin Parker (Low Fulney) and James Waterfall (Gedney Hill).
The high-quality field also includes defending World of Shale champion Mark Simpson (Skegness) and Yorkshire-based superstar Billy Webster plus three Dutchmen.
As well as chasing World of Shale points, the meeting offers a final chance to perfect a car’s set-up ahead of the all-important World Champ-ionship semi-finals which take place at the formula’s next outing at King’s Lynn on August 13.
In the Unlimited Bangers, Lincolnshire is represented by the likes of former World Champions Jonny Atkin and David Gibson (both Bourne), plus Joe Geeves (Stamford) of the popular Mad Hatters team.
All three will have their hands full against star names such as Jack Overy (Ely) and Lee Clarke (Norwich). Atkin and Gibson also do double duty in the Two-Litre Bangers.
