Excellent entertainment for huge crowd at the Adrian Flux Arena
West Norfolk drivers delivered some excellent performances as the national bangers took centre stage at the Adrian Flux Arena on Saturday night.
Another fully-booked meeting thrilled another good crowd with local drivers to the fore for much of the evening.
The Predators pairing of Kieran Bowman and Robert Betts both put in a fantastic display in the first running of the Mk 1 Almera/All sunny bangers.
This formula proved to be a real throwback to racing a decade ago and was a huge success.
Bowman picked up an entertainer award for his efforts as he continues to look at putting in a successful defence of his entertainer league title.
Betts was unlucky not to join him in the entertainer stakes following an impressive full contact display of national banger action.
Lynn father-and-son duo Russell and Callum Gill both had a good night with the pair picking up some top-ten finishes in the heats.
This included a runner-up spot for Russell before Callum came home in second place in an action-packed final, which was led for a long way by father Russell, who eventually came home in fourth place.
Darren Fendley, Davey Cox and Ashley Garrod all also picked up top-ten finishes throughout the night with Garrod also getting third place in the final.
The meeting also saw the return of Alex Smith who had been out of racing for more than a year after recuperating from serious injuries from a road accident.
Judging by the big smile Smith had following his action-packed performance, he felt no ill-effects from the on-track action.
Clenchwarton’s Ryley Freestone put in an outstanding display in the micro bangers, where he won an entertainer award after delivering some big hits in his opening heat before securing a resounding win in his second outing.
Shaun Clarke and Terrington St John brothers Ben and Josh Green were heavily in the middle of the action with Josh also getting a top-ten finish.
Callum Gill raced in the micros as well as the sunny bangers and also had several top-ten finishes in this formula as well. including a runner-up finish to Ryley Freestone in his heat.
Harry Cobb had another exceptional night in the junior bangers with a trio of top-three finishes with Colchester’s Bradley Green winning the final, which Cobb was unlucky in to finish third after getting tangled up.
Stock car and banger racing returns to the Adrian Flux Arena over Easter.
Two events will be taking place with meetings on Saturday, April 20 (5.30pm) and Monday, April 22 (1pm).
