The red flags came out for TM521 Dace who was understandably shaken – teammate 517 Cooper leading the way at this stage. The race resumed with P25 Black Magic going against the flow to catch third place GD711 Macca sending him fence-wards.

We had a small break in action before AM515 Flats put the bumper in on P279 Bradderz. AM400 Shinny delivered one of his textbook follow ins in true 00s nostalgia with P227 Horton being the victim; Shinny completing a full roll and landing on all fours as the race continued. NM273 Mad Mouse had a pop at P279 Bradderz before being removed by DB647 Webb. G669 Heli Boy then took his spot at setting about P279 Bradderz. TMT449 Critt laid into GB69 and was turned fence-wards himself by TM352 Mynott. SS299 Knocka spun aside GD112 Daz. NM273 Mad Mouse again made a beeline for P279 Bradderz, dumping him at the end of the home straight onto the grass bank.

178, 519, 107, 188, 830, 785, 174, NOF

The Gladiators and GFC delivered solid warfare, with 107 Taylor Pratchett ending with this wreck

AM400 Shinny was the first to show in Heat 5 rattling in GB69. P595 Drew Boy and DB647 Webb tangling. NM340 Wes stormed in to blitz P595 Drew Boy and was jacked himself by GD112 Daz.

TMT259 Big Dan came under fire from NM340 Wes, so decided to put his anchors on to hold him there. P87 Damo duly obliged to weigh in, which in turn catapulted TMT592 Marchant airborne. The Gravediggers decided to go on oppo, with 112 Daz stopping AM400 Shinny and 29 Mawdsley taking out GFC326 Ratty. P279 Braderz homed in on AM400 Shinny, and stayed latched onto him to thunder him into TM123 Hairline, who had been done on oppo by GD112 Daz; Daz also dishing it to TM707 Lilley.

Poor 279 Braderz didn’t get off lightly on the exit of the track however, getting run into the pit gate by the tractor.

248, 517, 707, 279, 132, 87, 340, NOF

The all-in Final saw everyone eager to get going. DB24 Hughes was turned fence-wards by the pack but was swiftly back in play. DB647 Webb spun TMT157 Domie into turn 2, but found himself going square into the armco courtesy of the pushing TM123 Hairline. DB51 Licquorice picked up TM707 Lilley, with P378 Jacko latching on for extra measures. TM707 Lilley went in square with DB51 Licquorice rolling bringing an early stoppage.

P87 Damo clipped the pit gate and catapulted into the path of AM57 Stotty; the pair both veering to the infield.

TM352 Mynott came under fire from TMT259 Big Dan, but tactically leant his attacker into the pile of dead cars along the home straight. TMT157 Domie also dumping AM57 Stotty into the melee of dead cars. TMT623 Tricky connected with a shot on oppo to TM352 Mynott, with TMT592 Marchant tboning the latter. Mynott backed Marchant into the lame P279 Braderz. P378 Jacko, GFC333 Cuddles and DB24 Hughes all fell foul along the home straight. P178 Slim jacked brother P279 Braderz for sheer giggles as DB188 Victor took the double chequered flags from TMT449 Green and P519 Knuckles. TMT270 Hutton delivered a stiff head on to TM352 Mynott; TMT592 Marchant jacking the latter. TM707 Lilley jacked TMT270 Hutton on oppo in swift team revenge before the red flags came out.

With several drivers from the TMT factions finishing in the top 10, TMT ‘B’ were victorious in the team standings taking the 2l Mildenhall Team Championship.

With the results being declared, this meant that the Alcomers was essentially a free for all. 18 the Elf set about 270 Hutton, as 40 Lester, 248 Blything and 214 Sparky crashed out along the home straight. 66 Shiny rattled in 178 Slim, who continued the momentum to drive through 112 Daz. Down on the road bend, 29 Mawdsley set about 252 Nemo. 342 Freestone dumped 51 Licquorice and 66 Shiny out down the home straight whilst 201 Turk found himself lodged on the infield banking on the back straight. 29 Mawdsley set about 214 Sparky and 299 Knocka put away 515 Flats. 259 Big Dan ran head on into the spun 595 Drew Boy. 214 Sparky homed in on 259 Big Dan, with 273 Mad Mouse going in on the Scrapyard Screamer. 340 Wes drove through 623 Tricky, whilst 214 Sparky got bounced about by the passing traffic. 178 Slim went in on 340 Wes, with both quickly continuing on. 252 Nemo went against the flow to meet 326 Ratty in a head on. 378 Jacko weighed in on 12 Coby. 340 Wes and 623 Tricky met in a head on. 107 Seexy jacked 340 Wes and copped one in turn from 342 Freestone. 449 Green jacked 342 Freestone and was done in turn by 227 Horton. 623 Tricky did 18 the Elf on oppo. TMT and No Mates shared several hits down on turns 3 and 4, whilst on turn 1, 114 Adz struck 174 Azza on oppo. 157 Domie and 375 Hensby shared a head on as the pits bend began to get very congested. 515 Flats weighed in on 378 Jacko on oppo as it really had become a free for all down on turns 3 and 4. 326 Ratty drove through 93 Dilly Dilly. 114 Adz attacked 51 Licquorice on oppo as the red flags came out for what I think was a fire. As the green flag resumed play, 623 Tricky and 157 Domie were already poised on oppo. 40 Lester jacked 623 Tricky on oppo. 51 Licquorice was the leader and weaved his way through the wreckage. The pits bend had certainly become more of a DD with shots going in galore. 521 Dace homed in for a head on to 214 Sparky whilst 326 Ratty dumped 201 Turk on the banking once again. 313 Oz Cut drove through 201 Turk. 299 Knocka weighed in on 114 Adz. 328 Lathan jacked 299 Knocka. 326 Ratty jacked 449 Critt and set alight bringing another stoppage. Only a handful of cars remained for the restart, with 57 Stotty being deemed the leader at this stage. 174 Azza had a pop at the ex-Saloon Stock Car World Champion but didn’t strike a hard enough blow. 623 Tricky stopped 57 Stotty head on, with 174 Azza going in on the leader. 333 Cuddles homed in for a large shot to 201 Turk. 157 Domie had a go at 273 Mad Mouse on the back straight. 57 Stotty and 51 Licquorice crossed the line together to take the last lap board. 51 Licquorice spun aside 57 Stotty and remained unchallenged for the last half a lap to take the win. 623 Tricky completed a lap on oppo before letting 174 Azza absolutely have it. 299 Knocka jacked 12 Coby. 57 Stotty homed in on 299 Knocka with 248 Blything doing him head on from the other direction.

Straight into the DD with 333 Cuddles blitzing 201 Turk. 51 Licquorice weighed in on 178 Slim. 51 Licquorice drove through 378 Jacko and then shared a stiff head on with 157 Domie. A huge blaze broke out under the bonnet of 299 Knocka’s Mondeo bringing a stoppage. 57 Stotty and 157 Domie shared a head on upon resumption of the DD. 157 Domie went in again on 57 Stotty and was then driven into by 51 Licquorice. Another red had to be called for a fire on 157 Domie this time. On the green, 378 Jacko bizarrely drove through 375 Hensby who had been sat out since half way through the Alcomers. 592 Marchant jacked 378 Jacko. 51 Licquorice weighed in on the front of 378 Jacko’s cougar. 592 Marchant rammed 378 Jacko. 51 Licquorice went in on the nose of 592 Marchant. 521 Dace went in on 51 Licquorice, but was deemed as being out of contention for too long, although Licquorice happily obliged to the hits and took an Alcomers and DD double.
