Jordan Cumming: ‘I always look forward to racing at Ipswich.’

The Unlimited National Bangers return to the Ipswich Spedeweekend tomorrow having spent the last few years away, but now they are back with an intriguing line-up that is sure to produce some action.

They will compete in an entertainers World Final wildcard, where the best entertainer over the course of the entire meeting will earn his or herself a spot on this year’s World Final grid in October, which was won last year by 124 ‘Oris’ Carl Korszewski.

New 2LTR National Banger World of Shale Champion, 570 Jordan Cumming is looking forward to having another go around the Foxhall Heath Stadium tomorrow.

“I always look forward to racing at Ipswich,” said Cumming. “Unfortunately, we don’t have as many fixtures there as we’d obviously hope to, but Unlimiteds round there is always a good meeting to do. We’ll see what the car goes like when we get there and get a feel of the racing, and then see who’s turning around or what the situation is during the day.”

Speaking about his recent World Final triumph at Kings Lynn, Cumming said: “I feel like there’s been quite a bit of pressure that’s been relieved off my shoulders, but that’s probably been put on by myself, it was a great feeling and a good day for it to happen.

“Now that I’ve got a gold roof, I’ll probably try and do a bit of travelling – we’re looking at trying to go abroad and do something in Holland, and try to do a few more things at Kings Lynn as well. I imagine we’ll get the World Final out the way and then have a sit down and think about what we’re going to do in the new year.”

As well as securing his first World Championship, Cumming has also been busy doing the Banger World Series rounds as well – which this year has the added bonus of its own entertainer’s league where the top three drivers will secure their spot on the 2019 World Final grid.

Cumming admits this has had a positive impact on the racing – he said: “Where they’ve introduced the entertainer’s league, I think it’s brought a few more people out for whatever reason that might be. The more numbers there are, the better the racing is, so it’s been good.

“People have got a different thing to look for now rather than just winning that one race that’s particular on the day. It gives people an incentive to do other things, whether that’s crashing or racing – whatever they want to do. It filters in for everyone.”
