Sunday 15th June 2014

An afternoon of full contact action took place at the Norfolk Arena, King’s Lynn on Sunday, 15 June. For the Bangers, it was the 11th annual Bandit Memorial, for both Unlimited Bangers and Two-Litre Bangers. The Two-Litres event saw a 1-2-3 for the Predators, led home by 176 Ady Gibbs, in a poignant tribute to their fellow former team member. The Unlimited version was claimed by 133 Karly Day, adding to the East Anglian Championship title he scored at the track a few years ago. The mighty Saloon Stock Cars were also in action, with 18 Jamie Clayton securing his second consecutive final win at the track.

Unlimited Bangers

There were over 40 of the big Unlimiteds in action, with the day’s first event being for white and yellow graded drivers only and mustering 26 cars. The action started with 768 Calvyn Girling (Mk2 Granada) blasting 821 Ryan Preston’s Lexus LS200 on the back straight only to blitzed by the Austin FX4 (London Taxi) mounted 149 Wayne Bailey, earning the Wild Boy the race entertainers award. With Preston sadly picking up an arm injury, the red flags flew, with 19 cars taking the restart. 268 Bradley French (Volvo 240 Saloon) led them away but it was fourth in the queue 326 Paul Picton (Mk2 Granada) who was the one to watch. He worked his way through the field, taking the lead with three laps to go, just before the heavily smoking French pulled off in retirement. Picton held on to win from 313 John Cullingford (Mk3 Granada) and 27 Will Longford (XJ).

The Bandit Memorial itself was next up, with an all-in format raising 33 cars. 133 Karly Day (Toyota Supra) immediately hit the front from 925 Aaron Preece (Volvo 240 Saloon) with multiple title winner in the Unlimiteds at Lynn, 247 Lee Clarke (Lexus Soarer) running third on the road but in actual fact a lap down. He had been one of the many early spinners, which also included Bailey who was then hit hard over the rear wheel by Longford, while 779 Luke Allen (Volvo 240 Estate) blasted 377 Zak Street (Scorpio Estate) on the back straight. Preece dropped back as Day began to pull away, even having enough time to dish out a superb follow-in on 601 Chris Medler (Volvo 240 Estate) without losing the lead. Medler rolled on impact to bring out red flags. Day led away the restart from 513 Sean Harvey, Picton, 673 Darren Fendley (Volvo 740 Estate) and 79 Ricky Twell, immediately pulling clear of the pursuing Picton and Fendley, before the latter spun. That allowed Twell to complete the top three and ensure Predators representation amongst the trophy winners.

Two allcomes races followed. The first, with 30 cars on track, saw 222 Matt High lead the early stages, as Day spun off before even taking the green flag and 579 Gary Beecham (XJS) spun and was done head-on by 514 Charlie Taylor. When High spun off it promoted 768 Danny McSweeney to the race lead from his Shunters team-mate Harvey. But Picton once again showed his pace, easily catching and passing both before McSweeney dropped back. Harvey held on to second from 22 Dave Vincent (Mk2 Granada) who had had a good scrap with the lapped 439 Danny Sutton (Mercedes) who was then hit hard over the rear wheel by 779 Munch after the flag. With no race entertainer, 880 Neil Naismith (Mk2 Granada Estate) was rewarded for his long-distance travel from Scotland by the Bailey family.

The second allcomers race was down to 20 cars but saw plenty of action. Once again, the early laps saw plenty of spinners, with the race led by High until he was passed by Harvey. Twell took the action up a gear by putting Bailey into the home straight wall, while 390 David Gibson (Toyota Supra) dished out a head-on to Preece. Picton again hit the front but then spun out, letting Harvey back through, before the biggest action of the day kicked off on the roadside turn. High followed in 830 Lee White, with Preece, Twell and 43 Nicky Bishop all piling in to form a wrecking train. Meantime, the flag fell on Harvey, with Taylor and Beecham then joining the back of the train. Harvey looked to be lining himself up to join in, only for Clarke to deliver a monster follow-in that prevented him from doing so. That scooped entertainers awards for most involved, while a check of the lap sheets revealed Vincent to the true winner.

Two-Litre Bangers

There were 31 of the smaller Bangers, dominated as-ever by Ford Mondeos. Top marks to 8 James Jackson, 338 Terry Garrod, 399 Jonny Atkin, Gibson, Vincent, Harvey and Taylor for fielding motors in both classes.

The all-in Bandit Memorial was first up, with 27 cars making it. 185 Dave Bonnet and 287 Dean Quincee immediately went in hard, while 170 Dan Garner, on a visit from Australia and in a very smart car, tried to take in Vincent (Honda Accord) but took most of the force himself. He was then blitzed by 479 Joel Allen and Jackson, with Harvey then blasting the latter. 841 Stu Carmen rolled on the roadside turn but landed on his wheels, allowing the race to continue with 176 Ady Gibbs, in a smartly turned out machine, leading from 47 Dan Allen and 897 Matt Battle (smart Vectra estate). 89 Joe Barratt worked his way into third, with the top three then remaining unchanged – although it was very close on the line – to secure a Predators 1-2-3. Gibbs said: “It was very close. Well pleased with that. I’m sure the [Bailey] family will be as well. I’m just surprised I’m in front, that’s all.”

The two allcomers races each fielded just over 20 cars. The first saw Battle put in on the road bend, with Gibbs, 90 Simon Chapman and Barratt then piling in. Out front, 770 Darren Teal led from Quincee and 930 Steve Baker. Atkin caught and passed both the latter two but could not reel in Teal who held on for the win.

The second allcomers saw Joel Allen follow in Harvey and 604 Ross Cooper do likewise to Dan Allen, who was then blasted by Harvey, with 219 Robert Betts joining in for good measure. Out front, 32 Alan Wombwell, Quincee and 396 Callum Roberts were having a good battle before Wombwell dropped back and Atkin showed his pace once more, this time passing the lot to take the win from Roberts and Quincee.

Saloon Stock Cars

Just a week after a bruising European Championship at Mildenhall there was still a more than decent turnout of 33 cars. Fourteen of them took part in the opening white and yellow grade race which was led initially by 610 Trent Arthurton before 232 Gavin Anderson took over on the second lap. Man on the move was 349 Michael Allard, who from the penultimate row of the yellows, quickly dispatched all the other members of his grade, before taking the lead early on and then reeling off the laps for a comfortable win from 538 Jake Swann and 312 Neil Payne.

The first heat proper fielded 29 cars, with Arthurton again leading the early stages and Allard again making swift progress. When Arthurton spun that let Swann lead from Allard and 6 Simon Welton. Allard moved in front before crashing into the spun 156 Darren Goudy and spinning out. That let Welton into a decisive lead from 220 Casey Englestone and 511 Craig Barnett. Barnett took second with just over two laps to go, but was unable to catch the leader, while Englestone spun away his third position, handing it to 730 Deane Mayes. Further back, European Championship first and second placemen, 499 David Aldous and 428 Lee Sampson both suffered spins, with Aldous taking a head-on hit for his troubles.

The same number returned for heat two, as the late-arriving 442 Simon Berry made his first appearance of the afternoon. Arthurton again hit the front but was delayed by 22 Karl Petters who was recovering from a massive meeting with a marker tyre. That allowed 161 Billy Smith into the lead, driving the car of father Diggy, who is facing a spell on the sidelines. He had a ding-dong with 420 Ivan Steet before resuming the lead until red flags came out to check on Arthurton who had rolled into the fence and then been clobbered, picking up some big damage. The front three of Smith, Street and 214 Tom Yould built a gap on the restart as the rest did a wall of death routine. The leaders were having a good scrap amongst themselves, with each having a spell in front, but with the rapid Barnett moving into fourth, things looked ominous for them. The former track champion easily caught and passed all three, as brother 512 Darren Barnett and Aldous also broke free of the chasing pack and began to catch the leaders. Smith retired, while Aldous worked his way into second, passing Yould with two laps to go.

Twenty-six returned for the final, with World No. 1 641 Willie Skoyles Jr an early spinner. 317 Dwayne Powell turned around 351 Lewis Byron to take up the running but was soon caught and passed by Smith, with 26 Tommy Barnes and Yould moving into second and third. Yould retiring allowed Allard into the top three, before Barnes got caught up and Smith blew up. By this stage, Aldous had caught the leaders, but was delayed in the commotion, which allowed 18 Jamie Clayton, pointless from the heats, into the lead. Craig Barnett spun Barnes from second and was then passed by Aldous with four laps to go. Neither could catch Clayton for the win, but Aldous still had Barnett on his tale for second on the final lap. The lunge went in from Barnett on the final bend, successfully turning Aldous around. The latter failed to get going again, and while Barnett did, he was delayed enough for 570 Simon Venni to nip by into second. Street was fourth, continuing an impressive day for the veteran, while Skoyles recovered from his spin to come home fifth for the third time in three races. Allard completed the top six.

The meeting closed with an allcomers race, with 25 taking the green flag. Powell led, but Sampson, who had missed the final, made the most of starting from the front of the blue grade to very quickly move into second place and then take the lead, followed through by 131 Timmy Barnes and Allard. The contest might have been all over then, but for yellow flags coming out to assist Byron who was parked broadside across the back straight. 306 Daniel Parker had just clobbered a marker tyre while taking avoiding action, bring it onto the racing line, where Aldous gave it an almighty wallop, bouncing himself high into the air in the process and retiring under the yellows that followed. Sampson led away the restart but Allard used the wall of death technique to absolutely fly round the bend and close in on the leader before successfully challenging for the lead. But he then got caught up with the backmarking Englestone and 391 Jake Banwell, which allowed Sampson back through. The 2013 British Champion proceeded to pull out a big lead and ease to the win from Venni and Clayton, who passed Timmy Barnes for third late on.
