Big van bangers steal the show at Lynn

More news, no ads


A huge crowd was wowed with some fantastic banger racing action at the Adrian Flux Arena last weekend.

The big van bangers proved to be the star of the show and are the current leaders of the entertainer league.

Lynn’s Kieran Bowman delivered a great performance in his unusual CVE Omni Bus.

Bowman picked up an entertainer award in the first heat as he went to war with the Mad Hatters and he ended up with a wrecked van by the end of the night after continuing the trend throughout the meeting.

Russell Gill was also in exceptional form throughout the afternoon.

Gill won an entertainer award in the first heat with a barnstorming performance which saw him pull off some great hits.

He produced some more crowd-pleasing performances before finishing of the opposition to win the Destruction Derby.

Terrington’s Ben Green also put in a good performance in the big vans while Ryley Freestone was one of the stars in the micro bangers.

Freestone won his heat in style and looked odds on for a final win only to tangle with a back marker in the closing stages of the race which allowed Jamie Blything to move through for the chequered flag.

The same driver was also unlucky in the Destruction Derby where he looked set for victory until the action was stopped so the injured Jon Cullen could receive treatment.

Paul Bowen made a rare home track appearance in the two-litre non-Mondeo bangers.

Bowen turned in a typically entertaining display and also recorded a couple of top-ten finishes.

Downham’s Shaun Clarke had a solid meeting with a runner-up spot in one of his heats before going on to pick up an entertainer award.

Karl Corsby won the meeting final to continue his recent good run of form.

Scotland’s Barry Russell made the long trip worthwhile with a final win in the two-lite stock cars.

Jamie Sampson was the top West Norfolk finisher in the final with a fifth place finish with his brother Lee coming home in eighth. Both drivers also got top ten places in the heats.

More great action comes to Lynn this coming weekend with the two-litre banger world final, sponsored by the Tyre Bay and King’s Abbey Taxis, heading the bill.

An amazing 105 cars are booked in to race and Kieran Bowman, Robert Betts, Bradley Bowman, Robert Betts and Joel Allen all having aspirations of winning the gold roof final.

Looking to book their place in the final through one of the last-chance races will be former double World Champion Davey Cox and his son Ben Cox together with Luke Allen.

Jake Burgess will be in action in the 1300 stock cars and while the junior banger entry includes both Harry Cobb and Robbie Dillon.
