The sun came out just as the flag dropped for the championship class. Ricky Wiggins didn't have the best start but fought his way through the pack to take the lead by the end of the first lap. Wiggins kept it consistent and ended up taking the overall win at the end of the 3 hours. Brad King lost his early lead but held on for a solid second, setting the fastest lap of the day at the same time. Brad Rowland advanced up to third place but was caught by Josh Player who managed not to run out of fuel this time! Well done, Josh!

Tyson Maytom-Jones got the holeshot in the expert class and led for the rest of the race taking the win for the class. In close second was Harry Neal who set the fastest lap for the group and kept Tyson in his sights for most of the race. In third place was young Alfie Heard who fought back from a steady start, cheered on by his Dad, who didn't let a broken collar bone get in the way of his son's result.

Mr Mark Cornick had an awesome day, pushing hard to finish first in the Expert Vets class. Those gym sessions are paying off! Gary McCoy led the pack for a few laps but finished the day in close second. Dan Groom finished in third, mega result considering it was his first trip back from recent injury.

In Clubman A, Cameron Games took the top spot, mixing it up with the expert class and narrowly missing out on 12 laps. In second place was Curtis Hunt and William Wilson was third, all placing respectably in the top 30.

For the top three in the clubman B class, Charlie Langston took the top spot, setting the fastest lap of the group as well. Alex Lamble put in some consistent lap times to finish second, with James Yates in third.

Neil Deakin won the Clubman Vets class consistently smashing out some good lap times in the process. In second was Lee Boulden who had the fastest lap time of the group. In close Third was Dennis Harrison.

Richard Bland took the early lead in the sportsman vets class but finished up in third. In the end it was Seb Picard clinching the win setting the fastest lap of the group by over a minute in the process, well done! In Second was Carl Robinson, all of the top three were the only riders of the group to finish on 10laps.

In the sportsman class Jamie Cass got off to a great start and maintained some good speed to take the win. Charlies Green finished in second, also claiming the fastest lap of the group. Ryan Dunning took third place, fantastic progress throughout the series well done!
