Danny Fiske was unable to follow in the footsteps of his father as he missed out on lifting the National Hot Rod Championship of the World title.

The Diss-based ace was aiming to emulate his father Derek who took the title in 1975 but he was denied the chance after an early crash in his Vauxhall dashed any hopes of success at the Foxhall Stadium in Ipswich at the weekend.

His fortunes did go on to improve, however, as he went on to take the third place prize in the Betfred Trophy Race and fifth in the Nick Thomas Memorial grand final.
