King's Lynn racing action is fast and furious as Freestone family turn out in force for banger meeting
The Freestone Family turned out in force for the Unlimited Bangers at Lynn on Saturday for the Freestone Racing team.
The quartet of Lester, Kevin, Wesley and Riley were joined by Ben Green and turned out some stunning cars for the meeting which they put to fine use throughout the night with some very entertaining displays.
Among the highlights was Wes throwing away a comfortable lead in the meeting final, where he couldn’t resist weighing in with a crowd-pleasing shot to earn himself an entertainer award.
Other West Norfolk drivers who enjoyed success throughout the evening included Darren Fendley who raced for the Dover Boys which came second in the entertainer points in the competition.
Callum Gill who was in action for Team Extreme who were runners-up in the main competition to Team Black who took the title for the fourth consecutive year.
The Predators were looking to repeat the success they enjoyed in the 2L banger version of the competition but that was not to be with unfixable damage seeing previous winner Chris Horton having to retire early.
Although Kieran Bowman put on a great show in his smart Yank they just failed to reach the podium in the entertainer points by five points to finish fourth overall.
Also putting on a great display for Tex’s Tornadoes was Fakenham’s Ashlun Woods.
Swaffham’s Rhys Mills had his best result in the junior bangers when he took his first piece of silverware home following a heat third place.
Perry Williamson picked up a great sixth place finish in his heat and Colney Rayner found himself in the middle of the action and he failed to make the top ten.
More great action takes place at the Adrian Flux Arena tomorrow when the 2L Stock Car and 1300 Stock Cars both contest their British Championship.
Lee Sampson comes full of confidence after a fantastic win in the English Championship last Sunday at Aldershot.
Sampson will be looking to take the title for the third time having won it when it was staged at Lynn in 2013 before claiming the title again in 2015 at Somerset’s Taunton venue.
He will be joined by brother Jamie and son Keegan together with Austen Freestone in what promises to be another action-packed evening.
The best hopes for a local win in the massive 79-car 1300 Stock Car entry rest with Jake Banwell.
