This weekend’s racing action at Lynn’s Adrian Flux Arena features the mighty BriSCA Formula One Stock Cars, V8 Hot Stox and 1300cc Stock Cars tomorrow night (Saturday, 5pm).

The sport’s biggest names will be in action in the unlimited-power, Chevrolet V8-engined BriSCA F1s.

They include the new European Champion Dan Johnson (Nottinghamshire) and Yorkshire-based British Champion Frankie Wainman Jr who, in his 30th year of racing, is still the man to beat.

Wainman has won the final at two of the three meetings held at the track this year, and will be joined by brother Danny and son Frankie Jr Jr. Norfolk’s superstar Mat Newson (Norwich) will be looking to gain ground in the track championship standings which he won last year, and will be joined by Richard Dickerson (Dereham) and Mark Sargent (Spalding).

The V8 Hot Stox formula is for slightly lower-powered Rover V8-engined cars and makes its only visit of the year to Lynn. Up for grabs will be the European Championship crown, defended by Warwickshire-based Michael Boswell.

A star-studded line-up also includes World Champion Kevin Stuchbury (Buckinghamshire), British Champion Phoebe Wainman (Yorkshire) and Guy Jolly (Huntingdon).

A huge entry of 1300cc Stock Cars is expected in their last outing at the track before it stages the World Championship final next month.

They include Suffolk-based defending World Champion Will Morphey, as well as a whole host of more local drivers.

Lynn ace Chris Brown was in fine form in last weekend’s meeting when he scorched to double success in the heats before coming home second in the final. Wes Freestone and his younger brothers Austen and Ryley provide further hometown hopes.

Racing veteran Stephen Walden completes the Lynn entry.
