Halloween Carnival Night provided a fantastic evening’s entertainment for a packed crowd at Lynn’s Adrian Flux Arena on Saturday night.
The massive fireworks display provided by Whitelightning of Emneth was enjoyed by all, while a huge number of children took to the track for the fancy dress parade, having kept themselves amused on the fairground rides as well as with the racing action on-track, of course.
Hometown rising star Callum Gill had a good night in the Unlimited Bangers which raised a huge 88-car field. The Lynn teenager came home second in the 25-and-under Championship of Great Britain (won by Worksop’s Jack Foster Jr) that opened proceedings and then repeated the result in the King of the Fens final later on in the meeting.
He was unfortunate to miss out on victory in that, leading on the final lap before getting caught up on the back straight, which allowed Norwich driver Calvyn Girling to take his second race win of the night.
Lynn’s Luke Allan was heavily involved in the entertainment stakes once again with several well timed shots which earned the popular driver an entertainer award whilst fellow Predator Keiran Bowman (Lynn) turned on the style with an impressive looking hearse which was decorated in Halloween livery and really looked the part . As has been the case all season since 16-year-old Kieran moved up from Junior Bangers, the young gun turned on the style and used the car very impressively.
Wisbech racer Ollie Skeels scored a heat-and-final double success in the Two-Litre Saloon Stock Cars, beating Lynn driver Lee Sampson into second in heat three. Daniel Parker (Norwich) and Jacob Downey (Wisbech) were the day’s other race winners, the latter in the annual White & Yellow Grade Series Final for lower graded drivers.
Three-wheeled Reliant Robins completed the bill, providing plenty of laughs with multiple rollovers in each race, and much shed bodywork. Through the carnage came James Ellis (Ely), Allen Cooper (Peterborough) and Danielle Hewitt (Ely) to take the wins.
Racing now takes a five-week break at the track, returning on December 6 for the Unlimited Bangers Nutcracker and 1500cc Bangers National Championship, also featuring Junior Bangers.
