As usual there was a packed line up in the auto group with some thrilling racing going on throughout the pack. Jason Edwards started the day off well with a superb win closely followed by Tom White in second place and Benjamin Parry in third place. In race two it was Tom who had the edge this time taking the chequers in front of Jason with Benjamin once again in third. With a winner takes all scenario in the last race it was Tom who held his nerve and took the final win and overall honours from Jason, but this time it was Pacey Forsdike in third place.
In the Junior 65’s Bailey Clifton was in awesome form taking three superb wins and maximum points for the day. Lewis Taylor was also riding really well with a second in race one and third in race two, however a mistake in the last race dropped him down to fourth overall. Bradley Fairbrother had a superb day taking a third place in race one and second place in both other races for a well earned second place overall. Daniel Edwards hard work and consistency paid off nailing the last place on the podium.
There was some fast and furious racing in the small wheel 85’s. Joel Hart took the first race holeshot but was hounded by a flying Ashley Rudd for the first part of the race. Ashley eventually found a way past and made it stick taking the first win of the day. Joel came home second with an impressive Kyle Jenkins in third place. Ashley continued the day as he started off with two more confident wins and maximum points. Joel and Kyle both took a second and third place each in the last two races and second and third respectively in the overall standings.
In the Big Wheel 85’s an impressive Ryan Rudd nailed the first holeshot with Max Hind close behind. Max found a way past and pulled away until the last lap when a broken spark plug meant he was limping home. Miraculously the bike still made it to the finish a few feet in front of Ryan with Joe Wright in third place. In race two it was a similar story with Ryan holeshotting and Max slipping past for his second win and Joe coming in third again. In the final race Max holeshot and held it to the finish for maximum points but Ryan was on a mission and never gave up shadowing Max all the way to the end.
Some of the closest racing of the day came from the youth 125 group. In race one Rob Nicoll took the holeshot with Jordan Hind, John Hall and Aaron Edwards in hot pursuit. Jordan found his way into the lead on lap one and eased away for the win ahead of Rob and John. In race two John holeshot with Jordan in hot pursuit, but a clash on the first lap left Jordan on the floor and John being pursued by Rob and Aaron. Rob tried everything possible but couldn’t find a way past John who came home for his first win inches in front of Rob with Aaron in third whilst Jordan fought his way back to fourth. This set it up for winner takes all in the last race which Rob hole shot followed by John and Jordan. Jordan found his way past John on the third lap and homed in on Rob who had pulled a small gap. With one lap to go Jordan was on Rob’s back mudguard but just couldn’t find a way past leaving Rob to take a well earned overall.
In a fast adult group there was only going to be one winner! Matt white was in his usual stunning form and controlled each of the races from the front to take maximum points. Billy King was in awesome form too and showed Matt a wheel on a couple of occasions but has to settle for three second places in this fast adult group. Charlie Janes rode exceptionally well taking 2 x second places and a third for the last spot on the podium. The only other rider to finish in the top three during the day was Mark Rudd.
In the Over 35 Adults Darren Murfitt was firing on all cylinders and cruised to the first two wins of the day. Anthony Hilton followed him home in second place but really had to work hard to get there after a couple of poor starts. In the final race of the day Darren took his customary place at the front but eased off at the end letting Anthony through for a win allowing him to finish his year off in style. Michael Leech and Simon Steadman had a real fight for the last podium spot only finishing with a point between them.
