Ross Coleman once again put in a superb performance in the Pre 75 Bangers at King’s Lynn.

He stole the show with one of the cars of the meeting with his veteran Morris 6.

After a couple of great races in his heats, Coleman went on a crowd-wrecking spree in the final with the best of his shots being a rated blitz of Laura Quadling’s equally impressive 1949 Riley RME which saw the Spalding ace rewarded with an entertainer award.

Several local drivers were in action in the Junior Bangers where Ben Kaleta was in great form, taking his first race victory in the consolation after four years of trying.

Sophie Allen was heavily involved in the action throughout the afternoon and was unlucky not to have some better results to show for her efforts, while Jamie Wright was in the wars and was lucky not to be injured when he received a heavy accidental drivers door hit.

The race was stopped to allow 15-year-old Wright to receive some medical attention, and after a short period it was good to see him emerge from his car unaided.

Elsewhere, there was success for local F1 star Finn Sargent, who made the long trip to Buxton and notched up a fantastic final win after coming within a couple of hundred yards of winning the feature race at Northampton a week earlier.

Sargent made no mistake on the Buxton tarmac to take a convincing victory.

Racing returns to King’s Lynn on Saturday (5pm) when the Unlimited Bangers and 1300 Stock Cars are in action.

Local interest will be centred on the 1300 Stock Cars, where Caine Parnell will be looking to take advantage of a downgrading to yellow to get back into the winner’s circle.

He will be joined on track by father Jamie and the duo will be accompanied by Billy Newman and Reece Crane.
