Introduction

The stock car racing season begins in time-honoured fashion at the Adrian Flux Arena, King’s Lynn, on Saturday (2 March, 5:30pm) with a capacity entry of iron-clad machines ready to put on a first-class show of bumper bashing. The BriSCA Formula Two road to gold begins with their first world qualifying round, while the two-litre and 1300cc stock cars both contest their prestigious Clive Grief Memorial meetings.

The arena boasts great viewing all around (plenty of under cover viewing too!), FREE on site and overflow parking, disabled viewing, licensed bars, ample food outlets and other great facilities. 

Please note that all bags will be searched on entry and coolboxes, glass and alcohol are not allowed to be bought into the venue.

 

There are currently 59 F2 Stock Cars, 39 2L Stock Cars and 43 1300 Stock Cars booked in to race. 

 

Any driver who turns up unbooked will not receive any complimentary admissions / start monies which they may be entitled to. If you are not listed below and would like to race please contact 07939 580652  if F2 or 1300 Stock Car driver, or Marion if you are a 2L Stock Car Driver.

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. Please note you will not be able to save space in the pits and if you want to park with someone please make sure you turn up with them. Only race transporters will be allowed in the pits. 

 

BriSCA Formula Two

Heading the entry for the purpose-built specials is shale supremo #226 Billy Webster. The Yorkshireman swept all before him on shale last year, including reclaiming the King’s Lynn track championship. He will be gunning for more glory this time.

 226 905

226 Billy Webster is a high flyer on shale! 

 

After a season spent largely on the sidelines, four-time World of Shale champion #606 Andrew Palmer returns to action at the track where he won seven races in six meetings across the 2016 and ’17 seasons.

 

The third King’s Lynn track champion in action will be 2017 winner #995 Michael Lund who will be debuting his newly-built car. One of the strongest performers at the track over the past few seasons, Lund should be a frontrunner.

995 Michael Lund is a strong performer around King's Lynn

 

Among the other stars of shale on the booking list are European champion #788 Stephen Mallinson and fellow northern stars #298 Jake Walker, who won the meeting final at King’s Lynn last August, and #905 Rob Mitchell, who scooped the World of Shale title at King’s Lynn in 2012. Now established as one of the formula’s leading lights, #560 Luke Wrench has made significant strides on shale over the past couple of years and is likely to be one to watch, while #26 Gary Ford ended last season in the form of his life and will be aiming to continue that hot streak this year.

 560

F2 action from their last meeting 

 

Other strong contenders include #124 Ollie Skeels and #55 Courtney Finnikin, both past final winners at the track, while #78 Henry King could be considered under-graded from yellow.

As is often the case, we also welcome visitors from the east. Crossing the North Sea for some early-season shale shifting are star Dutchmen H186 Ricardo Smidt, winner of the Friday night final in last year’s Easter holidays, and H229 Tjalle Greidanus, the youngster with a big future. They will be joined by H191 Fransie Burhenne and H799 Ad Kamps.

h186

Dutch visitor H186 Riccardo Smidt was a Final winner here in 2018 and will be hoping to steer clear of trouble again!

 

West Country racer #111 Lewis Geach loves his outings on the loose, and this weekend will be accompanied by fellow Exeter man #828 Julian Coombes, while former superstar #542 Steven Gilbert travels all the way from Cornwall.

 

Ministox graduates #130 Emma Ford and #202 Will Knight will be joining the fray, and there is also a debut for #69 Ben Chalkley.

New to the F2's; 69 Ben Chalkey will be one to keep an eye on!

 

 

2 Litre Saloon Stock Cars

The Clive Grief Memorial is always a special occasion to open the season for the Heavy Metal Brigade as we remember one of the formula’s most popular drivers from times gone by. Last year’s event was particularly poignant as Clive’s son Luke (#219) managed to win the race held in honour of his father.

 LukeGrief

219 Luke Grief made sure he took the trophy in his Dads memorial race last year

 

Another past winner who confirmed his booking in good time was #391 Jake Banwell, the local youngster who took the trophy in 2014 but has since faced a long road to recovery from a nasty back injury. Having run a hire car last season, and had some outings in 1300cc stock cars, Banwell – along with his super-smart car – is now back.

 391 450

It's good to have 391 Jake Banwell back in a 2 Litre Saloon 

Continuing the theme of rising stars, youngsters #172 Jack Rust and #120 Luke Dorling had breakthrough seasons last year and are certain to be ones to watch this season, while #399 Cole Atkins has been the nation’s most committed driver for the past two seasons despite being just 18 years old.

172

172 Jack Rust is an ever improving performer

 

As always at King’s Lynn, the formula’s champions will be out in force. European champion and National Series runner-up #116 Diggy Smith leads the way; one of the formula’s greatest ever drivers – he was voted third in a comprehensive poll conducted last year – no-one has more experience than Diggy. British champion #730 Deane Mayes is consistently one of the strongest performers at King’s Lynn, while UK champion #349 Michael Allard is making his full return from injury, having had an off-season outing at Eastbourne over the Christmas period.

116 218 kw

116 Diggy Smith is usually involved in the action!

 

We also welcome back veteran #420 Ivan Street after he was kept on the sidelines last year, while there is a return to the formula for #450 Luke Jackson, the 1300cc star who made a handful of outings in the two-litres a few years ago. Local stars #428 Lee Sampson and #26 Tommy Barnes should be in the thick of the action, while shale expert #148 Ian Redden will enjoy getting a slide on.

26 219 670

A common sight in 2 Litre Saloon Stock Cars 

 

Travelling all the way from Scotland for some fun on the loose will be Lynn regular #600 Barry Russell and young gun #125 Euan Mathieson. Completing a quintet of Scotsmen are #620 Aaryn Triggs, #671 Ross Graham and #777 Alan Ainslie.

1300cc Stock Cars

The smaller stock cars also contest their version of the Clive Grief Memorial, won last year by #400 Kevin Shinn. Only one other past winner is set to be in action this weekend and that is the driver who won the inaugural edition in 2010, the formula’s star man #216 Dan Booth. The Spalding driver’s car will be sporting a silver roof with twin gold stripes signifying his status as national points and World of Shale champion, each of which he has won on multiple occasions.

400

 400 Kevin Shinn will be doing all he can to retain the Clive Grief Memorial

 

If Booth is the yardstick everyone else has to measure up to, the form driver over the second half of last season was newcomer #303 Jacob Bromley, who made a stellar start to his senior racing career in a family-built car.Other likely frontrunners include #149 Todd Payne and #422 Martin Taylor, while Startrax national points winner #367 Tom Keep will be out to prove he can live with the top Trackstar men too.

149 317

Spedeworth’s #104 Paul Brown Jr has plenty of experience at King’s Lynn, even if more of it is in Bangers than stock cars, while #191 Luke Leedell and #535 Connor Sheldrake have established themselves well in the formula.

 

The yellow grade is packed with drivers who are probably too good for it and so will be looking to make hay from their advantageous starts before being upgraded. They include #55 Ricky Ivatt, who made rapid progress at the end of last season, young gun #730 Brandon Mayes and experienced campaigners #731 Barry Wade and #781 Scott Sparrow.

 

55 781

As usual, a packed white grade will make it hard work for those starting behind. One to watch could be Ministox graduate #504 Danny Elbourn, after a very successful career in the junior ranks, while the experienced #76 Jonathan Upchurch is on the comeback trail and could be dangerous from the front of the grid.
