FENLAND drivers were once again heavily involved in the action at the Norfolk Arena on Saturday, writes PAUL BUTLER.
Jamie Wyatt, from Stowbridge, was in fine form in the two-litre bangers as he stormed to a heat and final double.
Elm's Stuart Warby was the only local driver to place in the final finishing in 10th place.
Earlier in the day, Warby had also placed in the heats with fellow Elm driver, Nicky Young and Wisbech's Pippa Cable, Shaun McMillan and Justin Nicholls all recording top places.
The TSR bangers were also in action and Wisbech's Malcolm Atter recorded his best finish in a final for a long time as he came home in second place to Patrick Bryan, of Northampton.
With more than 70 cars in action, merely qualifying for the 32-car final was going to be a tough task but Wisbech drivers Lee Horwood, Matthew Roberts, Ian Groves, together with Littleport's Jamie and Darren Pinder and Rob Wheatley, of Ely, all qualified in style.
