Introduction

Crash for Cancer III takes place at the Adrian Flux Arena, King’s Lynn, on Bank Holiday Monday afternoon (27 August, 1pm), with a terrific field of Van Bangers set to provide wall-to-wall entertainment, while raising money to fight cancer at the same time. Also in action are the Reliant Robins, contesting their biggest race of the year, and we have a first for King’s Lynn – a ramp rollover event!

 

There are currently 57 Big Van Bangers, 20 Reliant Robins and 16 Ramp Rollover competitors booked in to race

 

Please note that any driver who turns up unbooked will not receive any complimentary admissions that they may be entitled to and may also not be allowed to race if the event is fully booked.

Drivers please note that the pits open at 10am and your early arrival will be appreciated. Drivers turning up in the last hour could well find themselves missing their first race. 

 

Big Van Bangers

For the past two years, Crash for Cancer, the brainchild of veteran racer Mick Gedney, has made for a fantastic day’s racing, with record numbers of vans in action, all helping to raise money for the Cancer Care Unit at the local Queen Elizabeth Hospital. And this year is set to be no different, with another magnificent field of vans ready to meet their end.

The event will see fundraising taking place for "The Big C" - Norfolk's Cancer Charity

Over £20,000 has been raised over the past two years for the Cancer Unit at the QEH

Gedney (186) himself will once again be in action, and he is joined on track by a number of other veterans rarely seen on track nowadays. Chief among those is 55 Mick Ivatt, a multiple title-winner in his 1990s heyday, but more usually seen at meetings these days on the centre, either waving flags or recovering cars to the pits in his tractor.

There are also appearances from the likes of 734 Mark Saunders. 902 Tony Lowther and 293 Nick Houghton, who enjoyed an outing in his trademark Triumph at the weekend. Others who we see racing relatively often, but who still fit into the veteran category, include 273 Kevin McClagish and 372 Barry Overland, regular top performers in vans. There is also 349 Lee Saunders, who will travel up from Kent, alongside top National Banger man 188 John Reeves, who was a race winner in the vans earlier this year.

Present-day stars include Entertainers’ League dominator 178 Kieran Bowman, who raced a terrific doormobile bus in May’s van meeting, and 77 Lee Ivatt, who took a heat and final double in his very smart modern LDV that day.

Van specialists the Surrey Street Squad will be led into action by 403 George Ticker, while also venturing from down south are the Bears’ 321 Keiron Fry and 43 Luke Maynard, both fresh from putting on a great show at the track on Saturday night. Heading the local van specialists is 386 Sam Evans.

 Others likely to be in the thick of the action include local favourite 791 Nicky Young, fellow former Entertainers’ League champion 85 James Ellis, the Predators’ 479 Joel Allen and brother-and-sister pairing 71 James and 70 Sophie Unwin.

 

Reliant Robins

The three-wheelers will be contesting their prestigious World of Shale title, defended by 553 Daniel Douglas. But eclipsing even Douglas on the entry list for the Robins – who are bound to spend much of their time rolling and shedding their ‘plastic’ bodywork – is one very big name. The new two-litre Saloon Stock Car world champion, 157 Max Stott has confirmed he will be racing a Robin on Monday. Stott, who won that world title in dramatic fashion at King’s Lynn on Saturday night, has a background in National Banger racing and so will be well set for the rough and tumble of the Robins.

Former World of Shale champions 85 James Ellis and 385 Roy Gedge will be keen to claim back the title, while 576 Colin Aldred and 66 Steve Willis are also likely to be dangerous, although the latter is more of a Mildenhall specialist.

Don’t rule out a surprise result, with 03 Scott and 9 Dale Russell both capable of keeping up with the frontrunners and causing a shock.

Joining Stott as man with plenty of stock car racing experience is 124 Ollie Skeels, who’s won plenty of races in both BriSCA F2 and Saloon Stock Cars in his time.

Those likely to be here purely for a crash and to entertain the crowd are headed by 185 Ben ‘Killer’ Oliver, while the likes of 381 Billy Beckham, 383 Shane Harvey and 664 Ryan Sutcliffe should also provide plenty of entertainment.

Ramp rollover

Using the ramp to take off and see how many rolls you can perform is a traditional event at stock car racing, but not one that’s been seen at King’s Lynn. It should provide plenty of spectacular action. A number of drivers will be doubling-up from their racing duties in the other formulas, while there are also returns for veteran racers 142 Lee ‘Monster’ Farrell and 148 Trevor Lown. Drivers win the event by scoring points for the number of rolls they perform and the distance travelled.
