STOCK CARS: Change of plan for Finn
The biggest meeting of the season takes place at King’s Lynn on Saturday (5.30pm) with the BriSCA F1 Stock Car World Final.
This is a race which Donington father and son duo Mark and Finn Sargent will have to sit out as, despite valiant efforts, both failed to qualify for the big race.
However, they will still be taking part in the meeting which will feature an amazing total of 115 F1 Stock Cars.
Drivers will be travelling from all over the UK, Europe and even as far away as New Zealand to compete.
As well as the World Final on Saturday, there is also an unusual Friday meeting (6.30pm) when more than 70 overseas F1 Stock Car drivers will be going through their paces with racing also coming from the 2L Stock Cars.
Finn Sargent will be having a change by going out in a Sampson hire car in the 2L Stock Cars with Wes Starmer, Tom Yould and Simon Venni also all in action.
Starmer will be hoping for a little more luck than he had last Saturday at King’s Lynn when he was involved in a big incident which saw him roll his car over and suffer extensive damage which will certainly keep his team busy this week.
Starmer’s crash came after a battling performance in an earlier heat in the night which saw him come home in eighth.
Yould’s sixth place finish in the second heat – the race which was punctuated by Starmer’s roll – was the pick of the places for local drivers.
Ryan Leeks was involved in the action in the Unlimited Bangers last Saturday but failed to get in the places.
