There is a throwback to yesteryear for National Bangers Racing at King's Lynn with the staging of an all Mk1/2 Granada meeting on Saturday (5pm).

Racing also takes place on Sunday (1pm) when the Mk3 Granadas, Micro Bangers and 1300 Stock Cars will compete.

The Mk1 & Mk2 Granada used to be the mainstay of National Banger Racing up and down the UK and Saturday's meeting will be a throwback to a much-missed era of racing in an event unlikely to be repeated.

There are still a large number of Norfolk-based names who love the older cars and this event will see them excel. Amongst those are Danny Sutton (Yarmouth) and Calvyn Girling (Norwich). Sutton drives a special Granada on Saturday and an equally impressive Mk3 version on the Sunday. Other locals booked for Saturday include Shayn and Ross Winsor (Wymondham), Ben Smith (Norwich), Jack Garrod (Swaffham) and Ricky Twell (Lynn).
