Kings Lynn – 29/10/22 – Unlimited Bangers Halloween Carnival Night – Meeting Report

It was a sold out crowd in what was a surprisingly warm Autumn evening for the annual Halloween Carnival night at the Adrian Flux Arena. 85 cars assembled to the Norfolk shaleway, in what is now an unheard of feat, as only 1 driver from the advertised booking list failed to appear and we had one bonus driver. Another impressive factor was that 20 of those cars were eligible for the All Limo/Hearse (+ Westy) race. 267 Martin French’s Volvo 9 Series Ambulance being the highlight of them all.

The Supernatural Championship was up first with all eligible cars making it out on to the grid. 29 David Mawdsley was the first to show as he spat 790 Nathan Young fence-wards at the end of the home straight. 342 Ryley Freestone spun 174 David Osborne a side. 100 Callum White spun 790 Nafe, the latter then being jacked by 437 Connor Burbridge. 790 Nafe’s bad luck continued, with 40 Lester Freestone following 107 Taylor Pratchett into the back of his Omega Hearse in impressive fashion, killing it off in less than a lap! 555 Harry Gelsthorp ran 160 Perry Willings into 790 Nafe just to make matters worse for him. It was equally as painful of an experience for 437 Burbridge, who came under fire from 551 Brett Jackson which sent the forming veering along the home straight. 214 Connor Osborne weighed in on 551 Jacko Jnr, before 160 Pez drove through 437 Burbridge. 925 Aaron Preece spun 101 Cieran Harmer, before 555 Dirty Harry leathered 437 Burbridge which saw off the latter’s Vauxhall Carlton Limo. After that impressive couple of opening laps, the action did even out slightly. 267 Martin French cruelly expired whilst running high in the positions. 342 Freestone weighed in on 29 Mawdsley, with 107 Pratchett going in on the former. Mawdsley copped more abuse from the Freestone’s, with 40 Lester going in on oppo. 174 Whipper homed in on 342 Freestone. 224 James Burrows jacked 40 Lester on oppo. 925 Preece weighed in on 107 Pratchett. 100 Cock spun 830 Jay Sharpe. 174 Whipper drove through 925 Preece, as 224 Bugsy Jnr buried himself inside 107 Pratchett’s Lincoln Town Car Limo with a tbone on oppo. 791 ‘Spud’ Nicky Young raced to the win from 830 Jay Sharpe and 101 Cieran Harmer; 174 ‘Whipper’ David Osborne taking the entertainer award.

9 Ben Cox set the early running in the 25 & Under GB Championship. 57 Mark Gilbert buried 704 Connor Siddalls, which sent 224 Lewis Canham spinning. 555 Dirty Harry ran in 712 Alex Hatcliffe which claimed 51 James Licquorice. Defending champion 466 Dalton Steele spun 7 Cade Bond as he looked to work his way up the order. 555 Dirty Harry stayed latched onto 712 Stig Jnr, following him in under the scoreboard. 214 Osborne attacked 343 Conor Farley before the red flags came out to aid 51 Licquorice whose belts had come undone. The restart saw 178 Kieran Bowman spin 182 Reece Tingle. 9 Cox bounced 873 Kyle Roberts off the armco. 466 Dalto set about 662 Dalton Smith which slowed 178 Slim’s momentum. 555 Dirty Harry spun 873 Roberts. 182 Tingle stopped the leading 271 Ashlun Woods on oppo. 224 Canham ran into 182 Tingle. 634 Ben Green spun 379 Shaun Turner, the latter making his Unlimited debut – 99 Shaydy Gough welcoming him to the class with a solid jacking. 165 Ben Randell spun 873 Roberts before 459 Blake Platts took the chequers from running-mate 374 Sam Markham and 178 Kieran Bowman.

After what had been a superb night of on track action and racing, the DD left fans feeling a bit shortchanged. It’s unusual for a Trackstar DD to be disappointing, but at least that was the only thing that was all evening. 349 ‘Noddy’ Lewis Price eventually outlasting 180 ‘Sparky’ Mark Foster for the win after the pair played a glorified game of cat and mouse for several minutes. Early action saw the Silver Boys see off 69 Brado, with 129 Cling On and 57 Gilbert also getting involved.
