IT was an all-contact special at the Yarmouth Stadium last Sunday where three totally different formulas provided plenty of action, writes Graham Utting.

The Ministox were contesting round two of their Norfolk Gold Cup Series.

Daniel Parker (Newton St Faith) came close to winning the opening heat of the night but was passed during the closing stages by the more experienced James Meadows.

The next heat saw Jordan Aylward on his roof after clipping the curb whilst contesting the leading positions, the race being won by Oliver Skeels (Threehold).

The final featured the closest of finishes as Tyler's collision spun Meadows across the finishing line for his second win of the night.

Skeels took advantage of the situation shooting past the collision to claim second place.

The National Bangers made a rare visit to the circuit and provided some good racing during the meeting.

Deane Mayes (Roydon) won both heats.

Yarmouth's Michael Allard took the final which went straight into a destruction derby with the drivers putting on a great show of contact until ultimately only one car was left running - that of Norwich's Ben Smith who only just outlasted Caister's Daniel Sutton.

This Sunday at 6.30pm sees the first round of the Yarmouth Stadium Novelty Nights, sponsored by East Anglian Car Recycling (Rackheath).

The series for the bangers has attracted a lot of interest with drivers keen to race something a bit different to usual as this Sunday's All-Ford/Fiesta meeting is proving very popular and should see a good grid of cars.

Also in action are the 1,300cc stock cars which were very good here last time and the rookie rods.
