Introduction

After a winter blighted by poor weather, the racing season finally kicks into gear at the Adrian Flux Arena this weekend, with an all-Banger affair. The pits – and track – will be packed, with the postponed 2017 1500cc National Championship topping the bill, and Two-Litre and Junior Bangers also in action.

 

There are currently 82 1500cc Bangers, 41 2L Bangers and 30 Junior Bangers booked in to race

Please note that this event is close to being fully booked - any driver who would like to race who is not booked in must contact 07939 580652 immediately. Any drivers who turn up not listed may not be allowed to race or will have a £25 fine.

Drivers please note that the pits open at 2pm and your early arrival will be appreciated. Drivers turning up in the last hour could well find themselves missing their first race. Junior Bangers in the White & Yellow Final should ensure they have turned up in time to be scrutineered and ready to be grdded at 5.15pm 

 

1500cc Bangers

Postponed from December, the biggest individual title on offer for the smaller front-wheel-drive cars is up for grabs, their National Championship. It is an event that has now been going – under various guises – for 25 years, making it a prestigious title to win.

Defending the crown is 566 Tony Pallett who will seek to emulate his late father Geoff by becoming a two-time champion, no doubt at the wheel of his trademark Vauxhall machinery.

 

566 dw

566 Tony Pallett defends the 1500cc Banger National Title on Saturday

National points champion 830 Lee White will fancy his chances of adding even more shades to his multi-coloured roof, while speed merchant 757 Callum Gill and 2016 World of Shale champion 88 Lyndon Stark will also be in the hunt, depending on where the luck of the draw places them on the grid.

 

88 dw

2016 National Points Champion 88 Lyndon Stark has been in great form in the 1500cc Bangers recently

 

Other likely contenders include 337 Ashley Garrod, brother of three-time champion Terry, 322 Tom Fox, 888 Lloyd Stark and 2012 champion 601 Chris Medler.

322

Expect a strong challenge for the title from 322 Tom Fox

 

419 Laura Quadling is the first lady qualifier for a major Banger championship at the track for some years, with 70 Sophie Unwin hoping to join her on the grid via the last-chance qualifier. But let’s not forget, Tracey Goodall won this title back in 2000, its last year before moving to King’s Lynn.

419

Top lady driver 419 Laura Quadling is the first female driver to qualify for a Banger Championship at King's Lynn for several years

 

Many drivers who would usually fancy their chances of scooping the title will have to do it the hard way, via the last-chance qualifier. Mad Hatters pairing 390 David Gibson and 399 Jonny Atkin are in that category and could be ones to watch, as will 1500 specialist 315 Nathan Webb and the superfast 921 Jack Aldridge.

315 hn

Even though he has to go through the last chance do not be surprised to see 1500 Banger specialist 315 Nathan Webb perform well in the National

Much of the rest of the field won’t be too concerned about the championship that’s on the line, they’ll be more interested in just having a good crash. 

 

601 

Expect there to be plenty of crashing, action and big wrecks in the 1500cc Bangers on Saturday!

 

2L Bangers Wild Card WQR

An impressively large field of two-litre Bangers will be on track for what looks set to be the formula’s best-supported meeting (aside from the annual World Final) for some time. Many leading drivers will double-up in both formulas in action, including 830 Lee White, young gun 178 Kieran Bowman, front-wheel drive specialist 337 Ashley Garrod and the Mad Hatters 399 Jonny Atkin.

178

178 Kieran Bowman will be one of several drivers having a busy night as they are in action in both the 1500cc and 2L Bangers

Trackstar converts 188 John Reeves and 898 Andy Battle will be certain frontrunners, while 128 Andrew Shipp should also be at the sharp end, quite possibly in machinery that’s a little different from the norm.

188 mb

188 John "Victor" Reeves will be looking for a good start to the year as a new Trackstar driver

 

The Gladiators’ 201 Phil Milner will be worth watching, along with 306 Nicky Bell and 405 Shane Tilley, and there is also an appearance from the Bears’ 321 Kieran Fry.

201 dw

Expect the Gladiator's 201 Phil Milner to be involved in the middle of the action

 

841 Stuart Carman was a man on a mission in the 2L Bangers last year and is one of a host of locals who will be mixing it with the formula’s big names.

841

841 Stuart Carman has put ina  great display in the 2L Bangers   

 

Junior Bangers

The under-16s will also be present in big numbers. World champion 131 Harley McCarthy will be joined by elder sister 13 Morgan McCarthy, with the pair facing off against Trackstar top dogs 90 Joey Holmes Jr (the national points and English champion) and 328 Ben Nichols. Sheffield visitor 450 Blake Platts is also likely to mix it with those big names.

328

328 Ben Nicholls is always a big player in the Junior Bangers

 

Attleborough’s 114 Luke Spinks will be hoping to join the formula’s elite this year, while 77 Lewis Ivatt, 229 Harry Cobb and 715 Josh Prince will aim to push on after plateauing a little last season. 608 Lenny Murkin will also be looking to make up for lost time.

229 dw

229 Harry Cobb always puts on a great display at King's Lynn

 

As well as Morgan McCarthy, the young ladies are represented by rising star 188 Codie Reeves, the indefatigable 70 Tiff Unwin and the relatively inexperienced 145 Liz Dicken and 159 Eron Denney. 

The very healthy white grade is packed with stars of the future, with the likes of 340 Sam Bennett looking set to make rapid progress though the grades this year, and 591 Jack Giddings also tipped for the top.
