Sunday 28th December 2014

The Mad Hatters crowned a fantastic season for captain 390 David Gibson with victory in the Christmas team championship for Micro Bangers at the Norfolk Arena, King’s Lynn on Sunday afternoon, 28 December. Also celebrating was Team Jackpot’s 338 Terry Garrod, with the team taking the runners-up position on the day and Garrod’s points enough for him to retain the National Points Championship. Victory in the BriSCA Formula Two White & Yellow Grade Series Final went to Lincoln’s 145 Graham Mole as Spalding’s 597 Barry Clow claimed the meeting final, while 85 James Ellis took the main event in the Reliant Robins, clinching the National Points crown in the process.

Micro Bangers

While slightly down on the expected entry, a still excellent 89 Micro Bangers took to the track in teams of three-a-side, which were split into three in the first round of heats, then halved for the second round of heats, before an all-in final.

The heats therefore fielded grids in the mid-20s and were relatively quiet. 549 Phil Smith (Gladiators ‘B’) raced clear to take the first, celebrating by burying 511 Jack Licquorice (Allsorts) on the run-down lap. Team Bash ‘A’ took an early lead in the points as their pairing of 675 Ian Fendley and 674 Luke Childerhouse sandwiched 338 Terry Garrod in third.

The second heat went to 14 Gary Lusher (Team Bash ‘B’), overtaking 886 Lewis Stark (Team Starky) for the lead with three laps to go. The latter then clinched a race entertainer award when he gave up second by going after 548 Jamie Avery (Gladiators ‘C’) on the final bend after Starky and the Glads had had a little tit for tat throughout the race.

The leading 309 Liam Gibson (Mad Hatters) went into a pile-up on the road bend in heat three, allowing 830 Lee White (Team Mates ‘A’) to take the win. The Mad Hatters got their challenge off to a good start with third for 399 Jonny Atkin and fifth for 390 David Gibson.

The second round of heats saw the grids upped to high-30s and allowed the action to get a bit more lively. The highlight was a wrecking train featuring 16 Dan Fisher (Legions of Doom ‘B’), 721 Dan Clarke (Bad Boys), 886 Lewis Stark, 551 Brett Jackson (Team Jackpot ‘B’), 307 Jon-Joe Cunningham (Team Starky) and a monstrous shot from the late-arriving 340 Wes Freestone (FRT). That earned each an entertainers award, save for the initial victim Fisher. 349 Lewis Price (Gladiators ‘C’) raced to the win from 601 Chris Medler (Team Starky) and 317 Nick Wakeham (Allsorts). The Gladiators provided some lively action in heat five as 338 Terry Garrod raced to the win from 673 Darren Fendley (Team Bash ‘A’) and Liam Gibson. That left Team Mates ‘A’ with a one point lead over Team Bash ‘B’ going into the final, with the Mad Hatters and Team Bash ‘A’ well in touch, just one and two points further behind respectively.

The 54-car final provided predictable carnage with a pile-up on the road bend leading to red flags. On the restart, most of those left running joined the same incident even before the green flag waved. That let Smith pull clear to take his second win of the day, but it wasn’t quite enough for his team as Atkin in fourth and Liam Gibson in fifth did enough to clinch the title for the Mad Hatters. With team captain 390 Gibbo already World and UK champion individually, it capped off a fantastic year for the squad. Garrod’s second place claimed the runners-up spot for Team Jackpot and clinched his points championship, repeating his fantastic December of 2013.

Formula Two

In the first off-season meeting for several years, there was a pleasing turnout of 37 stock cars, allowing a full format meeting. The first heat doubled-up as the track’s White & Yellow Series Final, with 16 cars on the grid. 283 Gary Allen led away until he ran wide and several slipped past, headed by 555 Dave Bale. His lead didn’t last long as 994 Paul Hopkins moved ahead on lap two, while one of the yellow-graded danger-men, 145 Graham Mole, was already third. Hopkin pulled off and Mole took up the running as blue top 362 Dave Harley and sole red-grader 225 Tony Blackburn moved into fourth and fifth behind Bale and 260 Anthony Winters. The latter then demoted Bale, with Blackburn following through into third at half-distance as out front, Mole was pulling away. Blackburn pushed inside Winters for second with two-and-a-half laps to go but could make no impression on the leader, Mole going on to win by half a lap. “I wouldn’t say it was easy,” Mole reported, “Two laps from the end, the car started cutting out altogether – I had to dip the clutch a couple of times.”

The remaining 21 cars took their place in heat two which was therefore top-heavy with blue- and red-graded drivers. When 977 Dave Massey blew up on lap two, he parked on the exit of bend two but would prove to be a magnet for others – 768 Tom Adcroft in particular – getting clobbered several times before yellow flags were called to rescue his battered machine. By that stage 380 Steve Cayzer had relieved 423 Neil Darby of the lead and lined up ahead of H218 Sjeng Smidt and Darby in the queue. The leading two pulled clear as 606 Andrew Palmer – in a new car – moved into third. He couldn’t catch the leaders though, as Smidt kept Cayzer honest throughout without ever managing to mount a challenge for the lead. Cayzer – the Mildenhall track championship runner-up – said of his return to form at the Norfolk Arena: “I’m very happy with it. The car always seems to go better in the slick conditions rather than dusty. I’ve had a poor couple of seasons here at King’s Lynn; this is the first one I’ve won for a long time – very happy.”

With only the top eight from each heat qualifying for the final, 15 cars contested the consolation, with 12 more places up for grabs. 589 Colin Eardley dominated from start to finish, explaining afterwards: “It [the car] was going really well that race. I made a couple of changes and it made all the difference.” 26 Gary Ford and 417 Allen Weston followed him home after earlier challenger 630 Justin Parker slowed, although he still managed to qualify with only 10 cars taking the chequered flag.

Not quite the full complement of 22 cars lined up for the final, with Eardley again setting the early pace as two of the top red graders fell by the wayside – 103 Carl Issitt spun (from which he recovered) by 124 Ollie Skeels, and Palmer retiring with a broken halfshaft. 597 Barry Clow, sixth in the W&Y final, moved into second before taking up the running and pulling out a gap as those behind squabbled and Mole slowed to retirement. Sjeng and 823 Sam Wagner moved ahead of Eardley into second and third but were unable to catch Clow who held on to win, suggesting afterwards that perhaps he shouldn’t be seeking to sell his car after all! Wagner took advantage of Sjeng running wide to get in a nudge with his bumper but it wasn’t enough to dislodge the Dutchman who held onto second.

The closing all comers race fielded 19 cars and begun with the two white graders tangling, allowing Weston to hit the front. But Issitt was flying and quickly took up the running before pulling away to win by a big margin from H124 Wim Peeters who passed third finisher Mole with a couple of laps to go.

Reliant Robins

A fairly thin field of three-wheelers led to some uncharacteristically docile races. 664 Ryan Sutcliffe won the first after 473 Dean Moat had built a big lead, only for the huge amount of loose bodywork he was pulling around to snag the fence and pull him in, delaying him in the process. The second went to Robin debutant 196  Joey Palmer, who held off a fast catching Moat and 85 James Ellis, who had only managed fourth in heat one after tangling with 385 Roy Gedge.

The eight-car final saw the grades closed up which provided some close racing. Ellis took the lead with two laps to go and held on to win, clinching his second consecutive points championship, while Sutcliffe and Palmer completed the top three in the race.
