Sampson Walker and Ellis Clean up at TONG. Rock Oil Hare & Hounds Championship Rounds 8 & 9 – Race Report & Results

by adminOctober 11, 2017

Over 170 riders attended RAW Enduro’s latest weekend of enduro action at Tong last weekend. A Double Points championship round saw all RAW regulars flocking to Tong to try grab a haul of points on the day. Not surprisingly riders praised Clerk of the Course Wayne Braybrook for making Tong “Different” to the norm, Braybrook has 10 years experience of marking out quality Enduro courses, that coupled with 35 years as a rider means he knows his stuff.

Saturday got underway with a RAW Talent training school for a select group of Youth and Adult riders on two different sessions. Riders improved massively under the Guidance of Advanced National Coach Wayne Braybrook with assistance from RAW Academy co-ordinator Rob

Lee Sampson

Dawson.

A small Youth Entry saw Isle of Man resident William Cawte take the Youth B class win in fine style. Sam Boyd battled hard to place runner up despite being kept honest by Hayden Stansfield in third. Smile of the day goes to Archie Roberts for finishing this “real Enduro” event. Those who helped this lad please take a bow, no more to be said apart from the show of proper friendship during race weekends in the Youth Ranks. Jamie Williams fresh from his “holiday” in Turkey narrowly held off Bert Crayston in the Youth A class to take the win and championship lead. RAW Team rider Richie Moorhouse did a great job taking third place having only just had his plaster cast removed from his wrist days earlier.

Phil Dodsworth

Sunday morning saw a Jam packed start area fire into life at 10:30am. Phil Dodsworth was the Sportsman Vets man on a mission; he took a convincing win just grabbing the extra lap on his rivals. Mark Cockfield had a slow start but as always battled hard to take runner up spot in his class. Jonathan Ellis was involved in a three way battle to the flag with Martyn Thomas and Andy Kirby, all riders shook hands after an epic race. Ben Walker loves the tougher events; his win in the Sportsman Class guarantees his clubman upgrade for 2018. Ben got stuck in and avoided trouble to take the win from Nick Taylor in second, New RAW Team rider Isaac Archer brought his RAW KTM home in third to maintain his Championship lead in the class. Grant Cooper is enjoying his RAW championship season; he took the Novice class win from title contender Simon Tate in

second place. Danny Philips was delighted to take third place after just piping Lewis Moore at the flag. World-renowned spanner man Factory Kev Hipwell was at the top of the Over 50 class, he held a 4-minute advantage over second placed Andrew Dean. Andrew actually cut his Family Holiday short to land back in the UK on Saturday ready for RAW Sunday. Committed to the job or what!

After a short break for the morning event presentation and results, the RAW marshals tweaked the course to add a little hard enduro section on the Rock slabs for the afternoon race. Lee Sampson out on a 125cc Sherco was right at home from lap one. Buzzing along on the small capacity bike Sampson took a one-lap advantage at the flag. Trials ace now enduro fan Henry Moorhouse was runner up, with RAW Regular and now Expert championship leader Phil Hancock taking a well earned third place. Lewis Ellis set the books straight on Sunday by winning not only the Clubman Race but he also sealed the Championship for 2017. In only his first full Enduro season Ellis now heads to the expert class as Clubman Champion for 2017. Local lad James Hirst took second place less than 3 seconds ahead of Stephen Hind at the flag. In the Expert Vets class John Bradford was kept honest by Neil Croston at Tong, JB had to work hard to take the class win. Mark Raynor finished a close third place in class. Finally the Clubman Vets class win went to Lee Pallet with James Cooke Thomas continuing to Improve despite a trip into the pond on the final lap of the race, which cost him at least one minute. Andy Williams was the final Clubman vet trophy winner.

Once again RAW Enduro added a challenge to the Rock Oil Championship. Tong thank you for having us, you provided the platform for us to create another great RAW Enduro Event.

A Fast turn around to the final round of the championship, a fully graded Driffield waiting for October 21/22nd weekend to finalise the standings at what promises to be a real race to the flag for 2017. Thank you to all spectators, competitors, and marshals, for making this event an enjoyable one.
