A BANGER racer was airlifted to hospital after suffering severe head and arm injuries in a smash at the Norfolk Arena.
A police helicopter flew two Magpas Helimedix emergency medics from Cambridge, landing in the middle of the Arena, in King’s Lynn.
The Helimedix team provided intensive care, anaesthetising the 28-year-old man and putting him on a life support machine.
The Helimedix team then escorted the patient, who was flown by the police helicopter to Addenbrookes Hospital.
A Magpas spokeswoman said: “His condition is described as critical but stable. We have no other details at this time.”
