Two famous cars of the 1980s locked horns for Swaffham race


By Lynn News Reporter


Swaffham Raceway was set to turn the clocks back as it prepared to host a race between the fictional cars of DeLorean from Back to the Future and KITT from Knight Rider.

A five-lap race was readied to bring these cars back to life on Monday morning.

David Hasselhoff, who was awarded the Guinness Book of Records distinction of being the most-watched man on television of all time in 2011, first came to public attention as Michael Knight in Knight Rider.

This popular American series brought KITT to life, and the vehicle was ready to give its wheels one more spin at Swaffham this week.

Despite a spokesman from Swaffham Raceway saying this would be 'just another event at the track', television cameras were booked for a new series called 'Cars are the Stars'.

What's more the race would see two of the most iconic cars of US TV and film match up for the ultimate test of motoring superiority.

Unfortunately, the race was cancelled due to a wet track...
