Micro Bangers UK Championship – Meeting Preview

The Micro Bangers UK Championship has now become one of the must do fixtures among the smaller car calendar.

Micro cars but not micro hits!

Among the qualifiers are four previous champions, including 99 Ricky Garrod who defends the title tonight. Ricky has had some top results over the course of the year and will be hoping he can successfully defend the title tonight. One of his main challengers comes from his own family. 337 Ashley Garrod is a two time winner of the event and will be looking to set the record of title wins becoming the only driver to win three times. 757 Callum Gill is rarely seen here at the Adrian Flux Arena these days, with his new venture in the BRISCA F1 Stock Cars, but the Micro Bangers have still appealed to him where he has had a lot of success. He’ll be looking to take the title this evening. 511 Jack Licquorice has had a top season in the Micro Bangers so far, and sees him climb to the red grade. Jack will looking to continue that momentum. 621 Ryan Hawes, 707 Jack Lilley and 595 Drew Burdett are all final winners in the Micro Bangers this year, and could easily take victory here tonight. 830 Lee White will be looking to add a title back to his roof after recently losing the 2L shale world final.

37 Dave Lewis will be one to watch in the last chance race; having previously taken the runner up spot on two occasions, Dave will be hoping he can book his spot on the grid and finally go one better. 322 Tom Fox is a previous event winner, and it’s great to see him back in a banger recently having also competed at the Pre 80 event last week. Tom certainly has the capabilities to book his spot on the main grid. 312 Brad White is another top pilot to look out for, whilst 9 Ben and 119 Davey Cox will be looking to make their way on to the grid to do battle with their rivals. 

178 Kieran Bowman has got to come through the last chance race. 248 Jamie Blything will be hoping he doesn’t though, or at least isn’t sitting up!

107 Taylor Pratchett still heads the entertainer points chart and will be looking to ruffle the feathers of those among the front runners. 51 James Licquorice has featured among the top three of the entertainer points back to back for the past four seasons. He currently sits fourth and will be getting stuck in to try and gain some more valuable points whilst potentially helping brother 511 Jack and running mate 212 Jack Maryon. 115 Joe Bull was on top form last time out and will be a great watch. 71 James Unwin will be looking to upset some people. 265 Karl Gant is more known for his crashing exploits than his racing. He was a DD winner last time out and will be getting stuck in to the action.

A top looking line up throughout, with currently 76 cars booked in. It should be a top night of Micro Banger mayhem.

It will be great to see TYB back in action here.
