Great Yarmouth Stadium hosts a meeting with a mix of discplines tonight.

The programme includes ‘wreck or win’ Bangers, the ‘stars of the future’ that are the Junior Rods and the ‘open-wheeled action’ of the Mini Super Twos, with a Banger–Caravan Demolition Derby thrown in for good measure.

The Bangers racers will compete in a ‘back to basics’ specification, with no Honda-powered cars, Focuses or Mondeos. Norfolk drivers include Michael Kent, whilst Suffolk is represented by Craig Thurlow.

The Junior Rods will be competing in round four of the Dolphin Travel Super Series. Top local drivers Perry Cooke series leader Ellis Skoyles will appear with Caine Silk, George Baker and Reece Legrice.

Completing the classes of racing for the night are the Mini Super Twos Formula while the Banger-Caravan Demolition concludes the meeting.

Racing starts at 7.30pm with the turnstiles opening at 6.30pm.
