Popular Big Van Meeting
Popular big van meeting....
Crashes on a large scale come to the Norfolk Arena at Lynn this Bank Holiday
Monday (1pm) with the Vandemonium X - the annual Big Van and Caravan
The van meeting is normally the most popular of the Bank Holiday events as
the regular stars swap their cars for large vans, and patrons are advised to
get there as early as possible.
This year looks like seeing the biggest entry of van bangers seen at Lynn
since the event's inception a decade ago, with around 50 expected.
Tom Reynolds (Heacham) has a rated classic EA Van which is more than 30
years old! Other local drivers who will be in action include Paul Heynes and
Shaun Cooper (both Lynn) in a Transit, Mark Cook (Lynn) in a Sherpa and Rob
Aldridge in an LDV 400 Minibus.
Ady Groome (Lynn) will also be in action in a Mk 1 Transit Camper, and
Groome is also booked to appear in the caravans - the last time Ady appeared
in a caravan race, he jumped through one of the caravans and over the car in
We will also be trying to answer the ultimate question - "are men or women
the better drivers?" - a question which has provoked massive debate since Mr
and Mrs Ford both drove the world's first Ford Pop!
The "Battle of the Sexes" will feature 20 men v 20 women over a three-race
tournament which will ultimately resemble a 70mph traffic jam!
Among the local drivers in the men's team are Martin Broomfield
(Hunstanton) - the captain; plus Nicholas Moore, Billy Fiander, Ian
Richmond, Jamie Childerhouse, Mark Cook (all Lynn), Douglas Jeffrey
(Grimston), Darren Fentley (Clenchwarton) and Roy Hinds (Dersingham).
Locally we are well known for the ability of female racing stars, and there
is no surprise to see a large number selected.
Captaining the ladies team is Helen Licquorice (Leverington), and also
taking part a Pippa Cable, Tracey Goodall (both Outwell), Cheryl Green
(Terrington St John) and Amy Brown (Fakenham).
An extra member of the male team is KL.FM breakfast DJ Roy Allaway and KL.FM
promo girl Sarah Hordley is on the female team.
Completing Monday's action is the 1300 Stock Car British Championship. Lee
Green (Wisbech) is denied a possible hat-trick of victories, currently
serving a ban.
John Moat (Wisbech) will be looking to add the British to the English that
the in-form ace won at Skegness a fortnight ago.
Lynn father and son duo of Tony and Scott Aldridge will be looking to
maintain the good form they showed at their last Lynn outing.
Tomorrow (6.30pm) the F1 Stock Cars and 2L Stock Cars are in action. Karl
Gilbert (Stow Bridge) will be hoping that his new F1 performs as well as it
looks with results so far having proven tough to come by.
Jamie Sampson (Rougham) will be hoping to repeat his final win he recorded
last time out in the 2L Stock Cars while brother Lee Sampson, Fred and
Dwayne Powell and Trevor Gray (all Lynn) are all also among the entries.
