The championship class was away first and it was a finish for all of the riders that started! Jacob Young took the victory in this class with Rob Cross in 2nd and Dean Edwards in 3rd.

The expert class was away next and with 15 starters it was always going to be a great battle! Darren Kiff looked good in the first half of the race with the fastest lap of the race outright, however on lap 7 he dropped out of the race and left the rest fighting! Tom Smith came out triumphant with Alan Morrison and Moss Macriner rounding out the podium, 1 lap behind Smith.

The expert over 40 class was topped by Jack Twentyman, no doubt helped by his new Core Race shirt (less wind resistance than the old tattered yellow one), followed home by Gary McCoy who recently raced the final British Enduro Championship round. Adrian Francis finished in 3rd. With only one DNF, this class showed the caliber of rider who are over 40! An old school race which suited old school riders!

In the Clubman over 40’s it was a big entry of 17 riders and 12 managed to finish the tough day of riding! Ian Barnett topped the standings in this class with CORE regular Stumpy Rodriguez coming home in 2nd! Neil Ross was 3rd in this category.

The Clubman 2 stroke class was hotly contested with Freddie Box coming home victorious, followed by a stand out ride for Guy Krumins on his new KTM 125! Both were on 11 laps and George Bowerman came home in 3rd on 10 laps!

The Clubman 4 stroke class saw Michael Hayes taking the premiere award, a lap clear of Ed Mountjoy in 2nd, who in turn was 2 laps clear of Gary Jones in 3rd!

The final class away was the Sportsman/Beginner category. Charlie Sampson romped to victory in this class, one lap ahead of Carl Bennet and a further lap down, Luke Jenkin.

It was a very tough and muddy day, however everybody dug deep and for those who did their best and to those who finished, well done and CORE hope to see you at their next event! Keep your eyes peeled on the website and Facebook Page for future dates!
