World hot rod champ to do battle at Yarmouth

PUBLISHED: 14:57 25 May 2012

The two-litre hot rods contest one of their biggest titles of the year this Sunday at the Yarmouth Stadium (5.30pm) when around 25 of them will be taking to the grid for the national championship.

The line-up will include current title-holder Shane Murray who is one of five drivers coming across from Northern Ireland.

Reigning world champion William Reed always goes well at the track as do local racers Gary Goodswen and Tommy Miller from Potter Heigham.

There is more top-class race action from the superstox where Shaun Brooker could once again be the man to watch. The grand prix midgets make a welcome return and with good grids this season this could well be one of their best showings for many years. The bangers are also in action with local stars Barry Beevor and Brad Hudson no doubt in the thick of it.
