Team Mates added another success to their growing list of honours by lifting the 1500cc Bangers East Anglian Team Championship in dominant fashion at King’s Lynn on Saturday night (16 June). Also in action were two-litre Saloon Stock Cars, where 360 Carl Waterfield won the main event and 217 Lauren Overy scooped the ladies’ charity race, and 1300cc Stock Cars in which 129 Will Morphey showed his class in an impressive display.

1500cc Bangers East Anglian Team Championship

In its return to the fixture list after a year off, there were 31 cars in action across 10 teams, although neither the 2016 winners Team Jackpot or runners-up the Mad Hatters were present, increasing the chances of new champions.

All but one raced in the first heat, where the action begun with 315 Nathan Webb (Team Jeff) following in 10 Chris Wick (STB ‘B’), earning himself an entertainers’ award. STB retaliation from 799 Tim Rees earned him another, while 178 Kieran Bowman (Predators) was similarly rewarded after he blasted 319 Shaun Clarke (Team Mates), who had blown up Bowman’s younger brother Brad (279) after the latter had struggled to get his car running.

A fire on board the elder Bowman’s car brought an early halt to the race with 566 Tony Pallett (Team Mates) leading from 425 Paul Sweet (Beacon Bandits) and 800 Liam Halls (Team Jeff). Pallett had earlier combined with team-mate 175 Karl Corsby to dump the leading 556 Matt Tillow (Black’s All Stars ‘A’) into parked cars and take up the running.

That gave Team Mates a narrow early lead from the Crunchers, who had father-and-son duo Davey (119) and Ben (9) both in the points. Team Mates extended their advantage in heat two as team captain 830 Lee White won a quieter race, while Davey Cox just held off Pallett for second. Corsby had again been on the pace, running with White until his race ended in the back straight fence with an engine fire, while 219 Robert Betts provided the action by putting away Ben Cox on the road bend, boosting the Predators’ chances in the day’s Entertainers’ League. 

The Preds were again in the thick of the action in the final, held on a much wetter track after a rain shower, with Brad Bowman turning around to take out Corsby head-on in the early laps. But Shaun Clarke was determined that Team Mates would challenge for both sets of honours as he followed in 721 Dan Clarke (Black’s All Stars ‘A’), and Pallett also put away 416 Jon Cullen (Smurfs) later on.

Despite the efforts of the likes of Bowman and 123 Kieran Gray (Black’s All Stars ‘A’), no-one could stop Team Mates as White and Pallett romped home first and second to clinch the title. 271 Ashlun Woods’ third position, allied to fifth for 621 Jamie Barred, was enough for the Smurfs to leap-frog the Crunchers and clinch the runner up spot overall.

In the day’s Entertainers’ League, the Predators did enough to prevent a double success for Team Mates, with Team Jeff in third.

Two-Litre Saloon Stock Cars

There were 32 Saloons in the pits, one of which was due to race in the ladies’ charity race only, and another that sadly picked up too much damage in that to get on track in the main meeting.

After finishing third in the last running of the ladies’ charity race, Lauren Overy (in 217 Sid Madgwick’s car) took the honours on this occasion. Starting from a nominal ‘red grade’, and after recovering from a sluggish start when she struggled to find drive, Overy relieved Samantha Ross (in 529 Jason Secker’s car) of the lead with two laps to go. Long-distance traveller Ross had been very lively, rebuffing challenges from Laura Bulldeath (in 360 Carl Waterfield’s machine) and Laura Quadling (in the 149-machine of Jamie Sampson), spinning both out. Banger regular Quadling recovered to take third at the flag.

In the main meeting, British under-25 champion 888 Shane Emerson took the opener for white and yellow graded drivers. He made rapid progress into second from his yellow grade start, then gradually reeled in and passed 573 Marty Lake for the lead, with 140 Andrew Mean following through. Lake held third as all of the top five, completed by 570 Simon Venni and 172 Jack Rust, crossed the line in a pack.

On a dry and dusty track, hometown driver 641 Willie Skoyles Jr set a searing pace in heat one proper. He and fellow Lynn local 428 Lee Sampson carved through the field, with Sampson rising to second behind the impressive Rust early on, before slipping back. Skoyles took over and romped to a comfortable win at the venue that will be hosting the World Championship in a couple of months’ time. “I’m looking forward to that,” he said. “Hopefully there’ll be a bit less pressure than last time when I was on pole position.” Rust also drove a fine race in second, while Sampson held off the rest of the charging star-graders in third.

Skoyles hit trouble in heat two as he was shoved hard into a marker tyre after a pile-up on bend two meant that a huge pack of cars charged down the back straight together. But Sampson and Rust continued where they had left off in the previous race, Sampson taking the win after passing Rust with five laps to go. Lake spun himself out of third, allowing 217 Sid Madgwick to claim the position.

Sampson nearly doubled-up in the final. Driving his previous tarmac car on both surfaces this year, the multiple title-winner felt that winter changes to strengthen it for shale racing had affected the car’s set-up. But recent improvements have shown through in strong results on the sealed surface at Cowdenbeath a couple of weeks earlier and this meeting on the loose. He caught and passed 360 Carl Waterfield for the lead in the final, after the Ely man had been delayed in back-marking traffic. But, after building a lead, Sampson’s car seemed to lose its edge as the track dried and Waterfield reeled him back in with a series of fastest laps. Over the final three laps the pair ran bumper to bumper, before Waterfield nosed inside down the back straight of the final lap. Sampson braked early to attempt a cut-back, but couldn’t quite pull it off, as Waterfield took the win and world champion 306 Daniel Parker completed the trophy places. Madgwick, Skoyles and Rust completed the top six on a good day for all three, with Scottish track debutant 529 Jason Secker a strong seventh.

1300cc Stock Cars

Pick of the 1300 races, which had 36 cars in action over the meeting, was their second heat. 682 Paul Sparrow was the eventual victor but he was made to work for it. Sparrow relieved 31 Callum Anderson of the lead, with 473 Dean Moat following through. Moat and Sparrow then traded the lead until Moat was delayed by 218 Jack Storey losing a wheel, which led to yellow flags with three laps to go. On the resumption, Sparrow pulled clear of a monumental scrap for second, with 731 Barry Wade prevailing from 769 Ben Englestone and Moat after 129 Will Morphey clipped a marker tyre on the final bend which sent him thundering into the fence almost head-on. Morphey had earlier finished third in heat one, showing prodigious pace to carve through from the back of the field as the lower graded drivers proved hard to catch, 42 Carl Morgan winning from 760 Robert Spinks. This after 690 Jack Wilkins had taken the opener for white and yellow graded drivers.

In the final, 149 Todd Payne finally took full advantage of his yellow grade start. He chased down Morgan for the lead, but all the while Morphey was slicing through from the back once more. The teenager eventually caught Payne and swatted him aside with three laps to go to take the win. Payne was a comfortable second, with Morgan holding on to third from 400 Kevin Shinn, 422 Martin Taylor and 390 Karl Morris.
