A four formula feast of the domestic Trackstar classes were in action at King's Lynn on Bank Holiday Monday afternoon. The glorious weather was in stark contrast to last year's equivalent meeting which endured heavy rain throughout. As the sun shone, the 1500 bangers ran the gauntlet of the crossroads in their annual outing on the figure of eight layout, while the Reliant Robins provided their usual brand of mayhem. Lady Bangers and 1300 stock cars offered more of a pure racing spectacle whilst still serving up plenty of action.

With the figure of eight layout making it tricky to have big fields of cars, the entry of over 30 1500 bangers were split for their heats. 122 Scott Piggin rolled immediately in the first heat, leading to red flags and a quiet restarted race, won by 549 Phil Smith of the Gladiators who were present with a six-strong entry from Essex.

Heat two was more lively after 224 Kevin Gumble stalled on the crossover and couldn't get restarted. He took a big hit from 888 Lloyd Stark which led to a pile-up. 886 Matthew Seggons was clipped on the crossover by 399 Jonny Atkin, which gave the former some airtime but he just prevented himself from rolling. Meanwhile Seggons' Gladiators team-mate 547 Adam Toms attempted a big follow-in but only succeeded in putting himself in hard on the pit gate, then being blitzed by 391 Ben Gibson. Stark took the victory from 305 Kieran Fryett, while the action was completed after the chequered flag by 390 David Gibson thundering in Fryett in an absolutely massive square-on follow-in.

The consolation saw several go into the fence hard in the first bend push. 11 Ryan Leeks did 545 Huffy on the roadside turn, with Piggin then going into the back of the latter, before Ben Gibson relinquished the race lead to blitz Piggin. 337 Ashley Garrod then put 90 Simon Chapman and 691 Ryan Bartram into the fence in one go before Gibson continued his path of destruction by burying himself in the latter. Having taken the lead, Garrod drove cautiously for the rest of the race to take the win. 601 Chris Medler put Seggons away on the last lap to take second spot.

The final's first bend push claimed 323 Leeder, while a pile-up on the transition claimed several. Stark and team-mate Medler spent much of the race lurking near the crossover but failed to pull off any mega hits, while Smith again looked fast as he pulled clear at the front of the field. David Gibson did 743 Kevan Bartram, while the Garrod brothers battled over second spot. 338 Terry looked the quicker of the two and took a less cautious approach as he caught and passed Ashley, but neither could catch the runaway leader Smith.

Terry Garrod would eventually prevail in the allcomers race to complete a good day which sees him move to the head of the national points standings. He passed 548 Jamie Avery with two laps to go, to take the win, with Smith also overtake his running-mate on his way to second spot. The race had begun with three big first bend follow-ins – 924 Mark Rook did 639 Paul Vines, Ryan Bartram put away 182 Ashley Watkinson while Toms did likewise to 376 Jason Farthing. The 1500s had served up a very lively session all afternoon.

Just shy of 20 lady bangers were in action, with the lower graded drivers dominating. 69 Hannah Thompson, on debut, took the first win after the 888 Vicky Hopkin and 85 Kate Calver had both been delayed by other cars whilst leading. 96 Amber Daniels, on her return from maternity, turned out an unusual sight in the lady bangers, a rear-wheel drive Lada Riva. She might have spun a couple of times but she had provided plenty of entertainment on opposite lock around the bends. New British Champion 319 Jodie Grief also suffered a spin on her way to fifth.

In the second heat 432 Cassie Smith put 762 Kerry Thurgill in, while Hopkin just held off the charging Thompson to win by barely a car's length. 74 Caroline Garner completed the top three as she repeated her earlier heat one result.

The final boiled down to another very close and hard battle between the same two drivers. Hopkin and Thompson passed and re-passed each other several times, with the former eventually prevailing to secure a heat and final double. 57 Hannah Godfrey completed the top three from Garner and 369 Jane Allard. 4 Stephanie Street rounded out the top six – her sister 444 Natasha had earlier claimed a trophy for taking second in the first heat. Meanwhile Grief was brought down to earth with a bump as she over-corrected a slide and took herself head-on into the fence very hard.

There was another very good turnout of 25 1300 saloon stox in the pits, despite the formula having had their East Anglian Championship the night before at Yarmouth Stadium. The number included two who had travelled all the way from Scotland – 67 Craig Haxton and 529 Jason Secker – as well as a handful of visitors from Spedeworth. Although regulars, the travelling efforts of Lancashire-based 143 Sam Begley and 409 Carlos Pears should not go unnoticed. On the car front, 450 Luke Jackson joined his father Rob in switching from rear-wheel driver Toyota Starlet to front-wheel drive Vauxhall Nova machinery, while 328 Daniel Lathan was racing in his father Mark's recently-acquired ex-Kevin Wales Toyota Corolla.

350 Rob Jackson continued his good form since switching cars by dominating the first heat from the white grade. He survived a late caution period, called for the stranded machine of 344 Ross Fisher which was facing the traffic on the racing line. On the restart, Pears slipped by Lathan for second, while 673 John Moat again made rapid progress from the back in his new car's second outing, rising to fourth by the flag.

Heat two was led by Rob Jackson again until he tangled with 653 Gemma Rainer. He still recovered for third, behind Lathan, who was looking very impressive in the modern Toyota, and 781 Scott Sparrow. Behind Jackson, a big gaggle of cars took the flag together, Pears just hanging on for fourth despite crossing the line sideways, ahead of 07 Ady Moden and Moat who had pulled off a last bend lunge on Luke Jackson.

The watered track led to tricky conditions for the first few laps of the final, with several spinners. European Champion 473 Dean Moat seemed on a mission to destroy Spedeworth top-dog 713 Ian Beaumont, as he dished out some big hits and left the latter's car looking a little skew-whiff. Dean's father John carved through the field in style, taking the lead with two laps to go as the front running duo of Rob Jackson and Lathan were both suffering smoky engines. Jackson survived for second, while 838 Ady Wales and 09 Buster Ketteringham made up good ground in the last few laps to take third and fourth. National points leader 344 Ross Fisher overcame a troubled day to come home fifth, his first points of the afternoon.

As usual, the Reliant Robins entertained the bank holiday crowd with their antics, each race featuring several rolls, some very big crashes and a lot of splintered fibreglass. Top marks to 155 Sam Coote whose creation of the rear half of one Robin grafted onto the front of another looked more like a bus or a train than a car! It didn't last long as perennial entertainer 385 Roy Gedge (in a 'Del Boy' special lookalike) blitzed it in the first race. That also saw two very spectacular rolls for 393 Lewis Godfrey as lady racer 51 Carley List took the win from World of Shale Champion 1 Allen Cooper and 664 Ryan Sutcliffe.

Sutcliffe dominated the second race from the front, winning from 704 Stuart Henderson and 576 Colin 'Porkey' Aldred. Cooper took his customary win in the final, which again witnessed all sorts of action, including massive crashes for 353 Darren Bewers (who managed to hit the fence windscreen first), Gedge and 851 Adam Storr. 85 James Ellis rolled out of the lead on the penultimate lap but recovered to third after Henderson had rolled Sutcliffe out of second just before the finish line.

The next action at the Norfolk Arena is on Sunday 12 May when the mighty 2-litre saloon stock cars are joined by micro bangers, lady bangers, junior bangers and street stox.
