Due to the nature of the destination and the popularity of the venue a whole host of guest riders joined the party.

In the MX1 class series Leader Andrew Wilson continued his good form to take the overall win and extend his lead over his closest challenger Lewis Meadows who was third on the day, with the duo split by guest racer George Purchase.

The MX2 class saw George Fountaine in unbeatable form to take the overall with 5 straight wins with Ben Franklin following him home in each race for 2nd overall.  Brad Wheeler did his championship title aspirations no harm with 3rd overall on the day, and in terms of the championship standings reeling in series leader Scott Hamilton by 8 points setting up for a tasty title decider at Pontrilis.

The Super competitive 125 class saw Lewis Dowdeswell continue his fantastic form with the overall win although eventual runner up Jasper Uphill did take the first and final race wins.  Teenager Dylan Spencer again rode well for the final podium spot which has seen him move up to second in the standings.

It’s a tight contest at the top end of the 250 2 Stroke open class. A strong weekend from Paul Johnson saw him not only take the overall win but also take over the championship lead from Luke Gidney who left Farliegh with 2nd overall and knowing that it will be all to race for in the final round with just 6 points separating them both.  Ben Gillett was the racer who finished third overall.

The 250’s were joined by a host of EVO classes with Paul Edge taking the EVO 250 class with a maximum, Kirk Whittle did the same in the Super Evo’s, Phil Lewis going unbeaten in the 125 Evo’s and Sam Chapman taking the No1 spot in the EVO 500’s.

Jamie Mccarthy showed his liking for the famed old circuit with the Win in the Junior Open class ahead of series leader Ben Walsh with guest rider Marcus Feltham in third.

In the Ladies class it was pure class from Nadiya Jones as she continued her superb form with the win, Tanish Thomas was the closest challenger in 2nd and Ellie Sleighthome in third.  Stacey Fisher did however come to the party by winning the final two races of the weekend.

There was a fantastic line up in the Over 50’s with Andy Watkins putting in a tremendous performance with 5 race wins to take a clear overall win.  Warren Berthiaume kept up his series rostrum hopes with second on the day with guest racer Simon Bracey in third.

It was the Brian Wheeler show again in the Vet’s over 40’s with Maximum race wins on the day giving him a whopping championship lead going into the final round.  Shaun Sabine was the rider to take 2nd position with Danny Blakley in third.

The series now heads to Pontrilas for the Final round of the series on the 9th and 1oth of September.  Full information on the series can be found at http://www.acerbisnationals.co.uk/
