Stock car and banger racing action returns to Lynn’s Adrian Flux Arena tomorrow (6pm) with three championship titles 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. Two-Litre Saloon Stock Cars compete for the Bumper Trophy.

Hometown driver Darren Fendley, who has already claimed the Two-Litre Banger World Championship this year, will gun for more glory in the Micro Banger UK Championship for which he topped the qualifying points standings. He was a double race winner when the class last raced at the track in August.

Swaffham’s Ashley Garrod is a former UK champion and will be a major threat once more, alongside brothers Terry and Jack. They and Fendley will have a busy day as all are planning to race in the Two-Litre category too.

Plenty more locals will be taking to the track in the Bangers, including popular Dersingham-based entertainer Sam Coote, Lynn veterans Kevin Freestone and Paul Bowen, hometown brothers Ben and Josh Green, and livewires Gavin Oakes, Bobby Pooley, Jason Farthing and Simon Eglen.

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 and every meeting. With additional prize money funded by generous sponsorship, the Bumper Trophy has attracted an excellent field including a few newcomers.

They will have their work cut out to compete with local experts Willie Skoyles Jr (Heacham), who recently won the Driver of the Year title, British champion Lee Sampson and his brother Jamie (both Lynn), both of whom are former winners of the Bumper Trophy.
