Saturday 25th October 2014

Essex driver Zak Street and Northamptonshire’s Adrian Court took the honours on offer in a very well subscribed session of Unlimited Banger racing at the Norfolk Arena, King’s Lynn on Saturday night, 25 October. Street took the 25-and-under Championship of Great Britain, while Court claimed the King of the Fens meeting final. Also in action were the 1300cc Stock Cars – for the second week running – and Junior Bangers, with Cambridgeshire pair Scott Sparrow and Breeze Atkin winning their respective White & Yellow Grade Series titles.

Unlimited Bangers

There were an excellent 71 cars in the pits, including five hearses in the hands of 52 Steven Dean, 222 Matt High, 282 Bobby Daniels, 571 Mark Quinsey and 597 Andy Ashman. All were very smartly presented, with the Mk3 Granada’s of Quinsey and Daniels done up like the Ghostbusters Ecto-1, and complete with coffin inside and a church built on top, respectively.

Heat one doubled up as the under-25 championship race and included two former winners – 830 Lee White (2009 and 2011) and 382 Jack Foster Jr (2012). Defending champion 247 Lee Clarke was also present but now too old to compete in the race. The 35-car field was lined up in graded order, allowing 377 Zak Street to dominate from the front. He had a good scrap in the closing stages with 549 Phil Smith, but the latter was a lap down and so only placed seventh. Coming home a close second and third were 287 Dean Quincee and 136 Adrian Court. On the action front, 266 Callum Hall followed in 325 Craig Preece and 100 Callum White , while the Rover P5-mounted 411 Daniel Pegg and 779 Luke Allen earned entertainers awards for getting stuck in to each other, and 611 Joe Geeves also put his big Yank head on into Pegg. Allen had obviously enjoyed himself, saying: “The Gypsy Crew keep giving it big, saying they want war – let’s have one!”

Just over 30 cars took part in heat two, including four of the hearses. After Ashman’s was delayed on turn four, it was blown up by 421 Nigel Riley. He then backed off, allowing Daniels to go in, hearse on hearse. 521 Ash Riley snapped Daniels’ machine, while race leader 579 Gary Beecham dumped 185 Polly Reade into ‘Ace Ash’. High made it three hearse in the pile-up and was then done by Nigel Riley before Beecham blasted Ash Riley. Clarke raced to yet another win at the track – he rarely visits without taking the chequered flag – from 22 Dave Vincent and 601 Chris Medler.

A 36-car grid took the flag in the consolation where 169 Jason Thompson put in Unlimited debutant 141 Nathan Pursglove, with the hearses of Quinsey and Dean joining in.  Several of the Bears then laid waste to the already struggling limo of Geeves, before 27 Will Longford was put away by Callum White with the latter eventually being blasted by 888 Shaun Stark. Out front, 160 Shayn Winsor raced to the win – like Clarke, he rarely fails to take at least one trophy home from what he described as “the best track in the country” – from 757 Callum Gill and 128 Andrew Shipp. The action was not complete however, as Quinsey lined his hearse up invitingly for someone to blow up, with 517 Sid Cooper duly obliging.

The qualifiers-only final for the King of the Fens title saw 27 return to the track, in what proved to be a race of relatively limited action. Court dominated from flag to flag, taking the win from Shipp and 148 Ian Redden – the World of Shale Champion did well to climb from the back of the field in a fast-paced race.

Nearly 30 returned for the allcomers race which featured a wrecking train of High, 404 Luke Brinton, 321 Kieran Fry and Allen. Dean’s hearse had also survived to take part but was duly wrecked after he put it in the back of Shipp’s car. Court again led much of the way but got himself involved in a bit of a a tit for tat with 733 Kyle Picton, allowing 791 Nicky Young to take a relatively rare win from Clarke and 328 Daniel Lathan.

1300 Stock Cars

A very respectable 27 car field was in attendance, seven days after a bruising British Championship at the same venue and the day before the rescheduled World of Shale. It included a quick return for Kent-based 44 Leigh-Anne Sedgwick, who must have enjoyed the previous week, and debuts for 140 Ryley Freestone (in 340 Wes’s car) and 333 Daniel Weavers (in 960 Ross Winsor’s car).

The first race was the 2014 White & Yellow Grade Series Final, open to those who had scored qualifying points and were currently graded no higher than blue. Although he led away from pole position, former red grader 316 Danny McCluskey quickly slipped down the order, 400 Kevin Shinn, 412 Jordan Gay and 794 Chris Brown moving ahead. Local man 794 Chris Brown worked his way into second and nosed inside Shinn for the lead, only to take both wide and allow 781 Scott Sparrow through. Sparrow didn’t look back from there, while Gay spun out Shinn, allowing Brown and 747 Liam Hard to complete the top three.

444 Natasha Street spun and was heavily collected near the start of heat one proper, with yellow flags required to assist her. Upon the resumption, Brown pulled clear by charging around the fence. Gay gradually reeled him in thereafter but was spun out by 838 Ady Wales, allowing Brown to take the win from 704 Stuart Henderson and 447 Richard Hampshire.

Shinn and Brown then had another good battle in heat two. Shinn led most of the way but Brown found a way through, only to choose the wrong side to pass the spun 702 Allen Cooper, allowing Shinn back through to take the win, while Sparrow also came past for second. Neither Shinn nor Brown will stay at white grade for much longer on this evidence.

Sparrow’s brother 780 Simon finally secured the first win for a blue or red top in the final, after the grades were lined up slightly closer than usual. Brown again ran round the fence to open an early lead , but a loose wheel required a caution period which closed things back up. Second placed Simon Sparrow moved ahead before Brown spun, allowing Hard into second. Behind him, an excellent battle for third developed between Sedgwick, 653 Gemma Rainer, Henderson and Scott Sparrow. The four passed and repassed before Rainer eventually spun and Henderson broke clear. Scott Sparrow was delayed in a tangle with Sedgwick who then recovered, charged around the fence and turned 451 Jordan Spavins into the wall, to keep hold of an all-action fourth place.

Junior Bangers

Another excellent field of 27 under-16s were present, with their White & Yellow Grade Series Final first up. A bruising encounter saw 72 Breeze Atkin dominate, winning by a whole lap from 78 Kieran Bowman and 407 Sean O’Neill, with only six finishers.

O’Neill went on to win heat one proper from the fast-closing 997 Wayne Cottrill who had charged through the field but was unable to catch the leader. Cottrill then went on to take heat two, moving into the lead when 409 Charlie Murrell tangled with the lap-down Atkin. 608 Lenny Murkin had a nasty roll after the flag, denting his roof on a marker tyre, but the car righted itself and the youngster was able to drive away unharmed.

The meeting final was dominated by the latest youngster from the Mad Hatters production line in Bourne, 308 Adam Richardson. He took the flag from Murrell and Cottrill who prevailed in a good scrap with World Champion 364 Bradley Lee.
