The 1st Round of the British Youth Enduro was held at Long Compton on Sunday 13th June & both the Weather & Track were fantastic. There were six class all lined up and ready to race. We had the 250cc 4stroke, 125cc, Over 13 & Under 13 85cc + 65cc & Auto 50cc all fighting for Trophies. Although the Number of Riders was lower than expected the atmosphere was alive and the distance peopled had travelled was amazing.
At 10.30 Mr Pete Carter Dropped the Flag and the 250cc 4*stroke, 125cc, Over 13 & Under 13 85cc were all cleanly away. Charlie Sclater led the 125cc Class from start to finish with a faultless Ride and took a well deserved victory. Ben Gwyther & Brett Moore spent the whole race swapping places in the 250 4* Stroke Class with Ben the eventual winner but he was made to work hard.
Katie Walker again impressed with another fantastic start in the Over 13’s 85cc Class and a healthy lead as she crossed the line in 1st Place. Katie also battled her way around the 250 & 125 class to tale 2nd overall. This young lady is a future Ladies British Champion & certainly one to Watch. In the Under 13’s 85cc Class Luke Arnall shot off the line to get the 1st place which he held the entire race, Bradley Sullivan had a tumble and lost a lot of time but rode like a demon to claim an Excellent 2nd Place.
In the 65cc Class young Harry Vaughan grabbed the lead and never looked back and finished in 1st Place just two minutes ahead of his nearest rival young Ben Murray who put in an impressive performance. The Auto 50cc was a complete Master Class from Dom Lancett who lead from start to Finish & managed to pass all of the 65cc Class and finished just 45 seconds behind Harry Vaughan to claim a fantastic 2nd overall.
The feedback we have received from the Riders & Parents has been overwhelming & we are very grateful for there support. Our Next Round is at Ashby De La Zouch , LE65 1SD on 17th July, we look forward to welcoming you all again.
