Following hot on the heels of its Halloween Carnival Night, stock car and banger racing continues at Lynn’s Norfolk Arena with the Fireworks Spectacular tomorrow, 6pm.

Two-Litre Saloon Stock Cars will offer a spectacle, backed up by the comical antics of three-wheeled Reliant Robins and the sideways action of rear-wheel drive Bangers, all complemented by the venue’s biggest-ever fireworks display.

Lynn’s Rob Aldridge will aim to provide the on-track fireworks in the Bangers, as he pilots a Mk3 Ford Granada, while classic cars like the Ford Capri and various Triumphs are also expected to appear.

The big Saloon Stock Cars have their final outing of the season at the Saddlebow Road venue. That makes it the track championship decider. World champion David Aldous looks set to secure his fifth consecutive crown but Heacham’s Willie Skoyles Jr will be aiming to clinch the runners-up position in what is the most competitive track championship in the country.

Lynn’s Lee Sampson, currently third in the points, will also be in action. Racing will commence with the track’s White & Yellow Grade Series.

The Reliant Robins are likely to spend almost as much time on their roofs as on all three wheels, with their disintegrating fibreglass bodywork only adding to the chaos.

Last weekend’s racing saw an enormous field of Unlimited Bangers in action, including five hearses which were in keeping with the Halloween theme. With drivers attracted from all over the country, the locals found it tough going, but 17-year-old Lynn racer Callum Gill managed a second place in the consolation race. Chris Brown took a win in the 1300cc Stock Cars.
