Bailo goes great guns at Greenfield! Indian Motorcycle UK Flat Track Nationals Round 6 – Race Report and Results

by adminSeptember 18, 2018

The sixth and final round of the 2018 Indian Motorcycle UK Flat Track Nationals delivered by the DTRA (Dirt Track Riders Association) took place on September 15/16 on the wonderfully groomed and fast riding Greenfield Dirt Track near Alford.

Saturday afternoon saw the Pro and Intermediate classes deliver some of the best racing witnessed all season. Track builder and Greenfield owner George Pickering got a flying start to take the lead in the 15-lap final with Gary Birtwistle, Toby Hales and Gerard Bailo from Spain in hot pursuit. Pickering started to open a gap while the other three battled for position. Bailo moved through into third and along with Birtwistle the pair began to close in on the leader.

Birtwistle continued to fight his way to the front and found a gap to move into the lead. Bailo continued to push his way through as he passed Pickering to move into second. The Spaniard never gave up and his persistence paid off as he made the pass on Birtwistle to move into the lead and take the win. Birtwistle held strong for second with Pickering third.

In amongst all of this action the best Intermediate class racers were fighting hard in their own race while gaining vital experience racing with the Pro class. Max Hunt took the win ahead of Sean Kelly in second with Martin Mills third.

As always the Hooligan class didn’t fail to deliver fast and furious action on the big bikes. Max Hunt got a flying start and moved into the lead with Leah Tokelove second and Gary Inman third. Hunt was on fire and soon opened a gap. He stayed out of trouble at the front for the win. Tokelove rode a smooth race for second with Inman holding off his competition for third.

The Vintage class saw both two and four strokes racing together. Mike Fisher continued to ride well in the two-strokes and took the win on his Bultaco with Darren Legg second. In the four-strokes Paul Harrison rode a classy final to take the victory with David Webb second and Rick Bearcroft third.

In the ever competitive Thunderbike class Steve Newsham grabbed the holeshot with Westley Agius second and Mike Hill close behind. Agius saw a gap and shot through into the lead while Jon Bell started to chase hard from behind first passing Mike Hill and then Newsham to move into second. Bell started to close the gap on Agius but ran out of real estate. Agius took the win with Bell second and Newsham third.

In the Minibike stock class Max Hunt continued his winning ways as he grabbed the lead and rode to another victory. Behind Tim Aucott, Geoff Cain and Sam Neville battled it out for the final two podium places. Aucott managed rode a smart race for second with Cain third.

In the Minibike Modified class Scott Faulkner got a speedy start with Joe Banks close behind in second and Freddie Trott third. Faulkner and Banks started to open a gap as they duked it out for the win. Unfortunately, Banks couldn’t find the gap and slid out of control in the final lap leaving Faulkner to cruise to the win. Trott raced through into second with Jeremy Skipp nabbing third.

The Rookie class continues to improve and saw some truly competitive racing. Andrew Horner-Glister took the early lead but Gareth Williamson soon went to work and moved to the front of the race. Behind, Terry Pyewell and Andrew Horner-Glister were battling for second and third. Williamson stayed out of trouble to take the win with Pyewell riding well for second and Horner-Glister third.

In the Youth Senior class Jack Bell rode a classy race for the win with Max Inman second and Archie May third. The Youth Intermediates saw some hard fought racing as Leon Collier took a classy win with Luke Gardner second and Aaron Scott third.
