History is made at Mildenhall Stadium

History was made at Mildenhall Stadium on Saturday night with a record-breaking entry of Unlimited Bangers and one of the most memorable evenings of action ever witnessed at the stadium.

A near-capacity crowd of fans from across the UK and beyond packed the stadium to watch over 160 drivers do battle in the annual Suffolk Open Championship.

This year’s meeting had added significance this season as it also played host to a memorial event for Iain ‘the Steamer’ House, a lifelong fan of the sport and contributor to many of the sport’s publications and websites who died in March.

More history was made at the start of the 12-race all-banger programme as the opening heats were only open to cars which were in production prior to 1970!

The next race meeting at Mildenhall Stadium is on Saturday, August 25 featuring 2Litre (no Mondeo) National Bangers, Saloon Stockcars and Ministox. The first race is at 6.30pm.
