Strong South Holland contingent are ready to roll at banger racing opener

Following the great start to the stock car racing season at the Adrian Flux Arena it’s the turn of banger racing to take centre stage at the track on Saturday (5pm).

There are two classes of National Banger in action, with support from the Junior Bangers and a second outing of the season for 1300cc stock cars at the King’s Lynn venue.

More than 160 cars are expected to do battle across the night and lots of exciting action is guaranteed.

Around 100 of them are expected in the National Bangers, which means big crashes, pile ups and wrecked cars getting one last chance of glory in motorised mayhem.

In the 1300 Stock Cars, Spalding’s Dan Booth will be a man on a charge, after a low key first meeting in terms of results – and he will be full throttle to make up for that night.

The results didn’t go his way, but he showed a good turn of speed which will hopefully see him prominent this weekend.

The front bumper is there to be used to shove the opposition aside and he will make sure he does.

Meanwhile, Stephen Murphy – from Holbeach – had a great result in the opening race, bagging a second place.

He will be hoping to go one better on Saturday and take the chequered flag.

The Junior Bangers are also on the line up; this class is for 11 – 15 year olds and is a great place for learning track craft; very often these drivers move on to bigger formulas.

Crowland’s Kacey Crane, Ben Kaleta (Holbeach) and Spalding’s Jamie Wright will be the home drivers searching out the chequered flag. This trio are in the infancy of their racing careers, but showing great promise. Crane, in particular, was right in the middle of the action last time out.

The arena boasts great viewing all around, plenty of under cover viewing too, free on site and over flow parking, disabled viewing, licensed bars, ample food outlets and other great facilities.

Family tickets available and kids aged 11 years old and under go in for free. Visit for full details.
