    You left Mildenhall off that list. But as that investment was not long before F1's turned up I bet no one except me actually noticed !!hi steve in my eyes the fence is so low in places it needs investment now from the owners I agree with you, but you can't disagree that the lighting and pits surface has been improved since RDC days. hi steve the lights are spot on i cant say i like the haird water feature in the pits though unless they are planning on putting fish in it !

    Like in virtually every other form of motorsport??Only the big formulas get big spectator numbers on the circuits . Most circuits only make money off of those paying to use it You can not compare racing say a mini 7 at say brands hatch to battling 25 other cars round kings Lynn all of whom are allowed to put you in the wall ! The fact that F2 , saloons etc dont get start money is their problem , doesnt mean the F1 boys should volunteer to give theirs up in sympathy does it ! Dont fool yourself into thinking that the big banger boys dont get appearance money ! And finally , if the F1 boys would get their heads out of their arses and do something about the ridiculous cost of a top line F1 then maybe something could be done about the whole fans cost , drivers cost moaning that goes on , cheaper cars = more drivers = more action = more fans .................. hi saloon drivers get start money £10.00 per driver not had a increase for years
  5. Ipswich is not owned by the council
  6. hi as i understand it no saloons with f1s at kings lynn in 2020

    Belle Vue Memory

    Old belle vue memory for me was good friend john b mobbs 350 hiring a 212 senoir car and going through the fence and wiping out a lamp post . Gave us all something to talk about on our long trip home to gt yarmouth /lowesoft
  8. Is that Tick or Andy 'Doughnut' Steward Carl ? tick started in bangers can remember john lawn in a p5 puttimg tick s a60 banger in at yarmouth ripping the back axle off !
  9. Darren clarke father raced super rods
  10. Yet another great night at east anglians top track .all formulas were spot on . Saloons were on early as they back the shale up against the fence .lowering the height for f1s .lets hope the mildenhall fence is up to height before this weeks meeting as on turn 3 it is very low. 20 liam gilbank certainly is going places drove brilliantly . No rubbish formulas with trackstar they reep what they sow Rr 10 Dotd 20

    He was not being lapped he was in the lead got took by 2 scots got out of his car and then got back into to his car to take out the leader 151 bob jones . Then started the fight on track and more trouble in the pits . Great sportmanship !

    Took out the leader from a lap down and got a few words of wisdom in the centre. Think the commentator was a bit biased Biased ? Just a tad !! Love the line.. your all very very naughty boys !!! Definitely seen him cause a few upsets in the Saloon's, especially in 'Betsy'. what the video does not show was the wheel brace chucked at maxwell in the pits by his co owner jan wood !!!

    Ok he has raced a spedewoth train superstox and a spedeworth f1 both very much like f2 a v8 hot stox . I too have seen him race in many formulae and seen him cause trouble when ever we abroad and scotland . Did not like it when they took him out at buxton saloon world final . Big pay back fron maxwell etc .
