It's the turn of the 1300cc stock cars to headline Sunday's meeting at the Yarmouth Stadium, 6.30pm start, when they compete for their English championship, writes Graham Utting.

The formula has enjoyed some healthy grids this season and should attract plenty of visiting drivers from south of the River Thames. It was at the Yarmouth track where the formula was launched some

18 years ago and it has seen many local favourites take the title including two-time winner Mark Smith and Barry Radcliffe, who won it ahead of his brother James in 2008. Now, with two more years' experience, both drivers are strong contenders.

The ultra-fast legend cars pay their only visit of the year to the circuit for their East of England title. The cars are scaled down 1930s replicas and have incredible acceleration, producing very close racing.

The historic stock cars mainly classics from the Sixties and Seventies such as Ford Cortinas, Triumph 2000s and MG Magnettes are on their first visit to the stadium this season. Completing another busy night, the ladies' bangers go into battle for round two of their season-long track championship currently led by Yarmouth's Jane Allard.
