OVAL RACING: Super Stock Car Saturday did not disappoint last weekend at the Adrian Flux Arena.
BriSCA F1 stock cars, two-litre saloons and National Ministox were in the line-up for a top-quality night of action, with some big crashes and a night packed full of incidents.
West Norfolk racers Willie Skoyles (541) and Lewis Galer (78) were in action, with Skoyles coming close to his first win since moving into the big and brutal world of F1. He was just a few laps away from the chequered flag when his machine’s front axle fell apart after a rogue backmarker came across him, ripping out the front end. You could sense his disappointment.
Skoyles will need to pick himself up and be full of confidence for the next outing for the class at King’s Lynn on July 2.
Galer had his best meeting since his debut, taking home second place in the opening heat, with a second in the allcomers event at the end of the night too; meaning he was named best driver in his grade, topping off a solid night for the former karting man.
Looking ahead to this tomorrow, the two-litre bangers are back, this time in teams action for War of the Worlds. They are savage and were in brutal form at the May Day Bank Holiday meeting.
There will be two points charts and two awards on offer – the traditional points title, where points will be awarded to the top three to finish each race, and the Entertainers League – with points awarded for crashing.
Also racing are the entertaining junior bangers, with a big grid of cars anticipated.
All together there are 13 races coming up, plus a Destruction Derby event – last car running wins. It all gets underway at 5pm.
