Big Van Bangers take centre stage at Lynn’s Adrian Flux Arena on Bank Holiday Monday afternoon (1pm), in their Vandemonium.

On the support card are 1500cc Bangers and 1300cc Stock Cars. The meeting completes a packed weekend of action, with BriSCA Formula One Stock Cars on the Saturday night bill (5.30pm), joined by Two-Litre Saloon Stock Cars and Junior Bangers.

East Anglian champion Callum Gill and his father Russell head a strong Lynn contingent in the hugely popular Vandemonium.

Brothers Ben and Josh Green will also be in action, with Ben set to entertain the crowd in his minibus. Swaffham’s Jack Garrod will be piloting a Talbot campervan, joined on track by his brothers Terry and Ashley.

All three Garrod brothers should be competing in the 1500cc Bangers too, while Lynn’s Gavin Oakes is also doubling-up between the two classes. Hometown driver Wes Freestone heads the 1300cc Stock Car entry, with his younger brothers Austen and Ryley also set to be in the thick of the action.

Saturday’s entry for the mighty V8-engined BriSCA Formula One Stock Cars is packed with the sport’s biggest names including Yorkshireman Frankie Wainman Jr who is bidding to become the first man ever to win three consecutive finals on the super-smooth shaleway at Saddlebow Road.

Local interest among another large entry of hard-hitting Two-Litre Saloon Stock Cars is provided by Heacham-based frontrunner Willie Skoyles Jr.

Last weekend’s meeting was headlined by the Bandit Memorial for Unlimited and Two-Litre Bangers.

Wisbech driver Nicky Young and Bourne’s David Gibson took the main silverware.

The programme also featured thrills from BriSCA Formula Two Stock Cars.

Peterborough’s Andrew Palmer made light of the tricky conditions as he drove to a heat and final double.
