Last weekend Brierley Hill MCC ran their first meeting at Meatan Farm Kinlet. This new circuit used the natural lay of the land with lots of twists and turns for added excitement. The weather gods were kind again with a overcast but dry day which in turn created near perfect racing conditions, the stubble field caused a few problems early in practice with the expert class having to be stopped by a red flag incident after a nasty fall to one of the riders who needed hospital treatment.
Top honours went to Richard Cannings from the Burton club who endured mixed fortunes, Richard double entered in both the MX1 and MX2 expert classes on respective machines. In the MX1 class he led the first moto by some 40 seconds only to clip a stake on the last lap, the rope wrapped round his back wheel leaving second place man Simon White from the Stratford club through to take the moto win, Richard remounted and finished second and then followed up taking wins in moto two and three. Simon went on to take second overall with home rider Graham Nicklin finishing third.
In the MX2 class after some early battles Richard romped home with three moto wins only to see all his points deducted at the end of the day falling foul of the much publicized correct background and number rule enforced by the West Midlands Group. Kinvers James Shand who had a excellent days racing with three second places got promoted to first overall with Brierley Hills Rob Crowe taking second and Joe Wright from the Walsall club finishing third.
Only eleven points separated the top three riders in the MX1 senior class with all three riders taking a moto win each Dan Leaper from the Stourbridge club claimed top spot with Kinvers Paul Jones finishing second and Stratford Pyramid rider Steven Hill picking up third.
No rider dominated the MX2 senior class with only third placed Dan Hope from the Burntwood club managing to take a moto win out of the top three riders, first overall on the day went to Lewis Dolman also from the Burntwood club and second place went to Midland Social rider Dan Butlin.
Under 18 Juniors saw Burntwood’s Lewis Ward romp home with a 2-1-1 for top spot ahead of Brierley Hill’s Stephen Homes who comfortably took second place in front of Sedgley’s James Porter. In juniors over 18’s Mark Evans and Simon Hutchinson from the Teme Valley club took first and third overall with Jamie Parry from the Brierley Hill club slotting in in second place.
again In the MX1 seniors no rider dominated with all riders taking a moto win, with Colin Stone taking the overall, Warley’s Wayne Lees taking second and Brierley Hill’s William Booton picking up third.
In the inters class Teme Valley’s Mitch Gray is well on his way to the junior group taking the overall again with Liam Chilton from Brierley Hill picking up second just ahead of Sedgley’s Kye Marshall who took third overall.
The Brierley Hill club put on a another good first class meeting and completed the full three blocks of racing with al riders looking forward to a return visit in late September.
