Spencer on a high at Hawkstone. Acerbis Amateur Nationals Round 2 – Report & Results

by adminMay 10, 2018

Where better to spend your Bank Holiday weekend than playing in the hallowed dirt of the famous Hawkstone Park? That’s just what the team and racers of the Acerbis Amateur nationals did, and were blessed with a full entry and glorious weather for round 3 of their championships.

In the always competitive 125 2 Stroke class Dylan Spencer is really coming into his own and powered to 3 race wins on his way to the overall, and in turn has extended his lead at the top of the championship table.  Jasper Uphill had an up and down weekend with two race wins interspersed with some lower positions keeping him in second position, just one point ahead of young James Handscomb who rode consistently and impressively all weekend.  Stu Owen was only two points further back from Handscombe in 4th and did enough to keep hold of second in the championship standings.

With the so far unbeaten Ryan Mclean not on show in the 250 Stroke Open class the door was open for a new name to stamp their signature on the series. Wildcard Cory Nemeth wasn’t hanging about and showed his rivals the way round the infamous circuit with 5 clear wins and the overall.  Lewis Dowswell put in a good performance for second overall ahead of another wildcard John Robson. Cody Ling and Curtis Dixon were the main beneficiaries of Mclean’s absence and their thorough points scoring in all three rounds see them in first and second in the standings.

The MX1 class was as competitive as it comes with four different riders taking the chequered flag over the weekend. Adam Wells had the best of it with two race wins, and backed up by a second in Moto one he had racked up enough points for the overall victory ahead of series leader James Lassu who had another great points haul and victory in race four for good measure. Lewis Meadows started the weekend with a race win and barring a poor 4th race could have been standing on top of the podium but in the end had to settle for third. Edward Briscoe was the other Moto winner but a disastrous race two lowered his scoring power and he finished down the order in 6th.

Wildcard racer Jamie Wainwright rocked up to Hawkstone in a determined frame of mind and blasted home to five race wins and the overall. Scott Hamilton followed Wainwright home on each occasion but in the context of the Championship this was another 5 wins for Hamilton as he extends his lead at the head of the points table.  James Angel strung 5 good rides together for 3rd overall.

In the Ladies class Amie Goodlad put in a sublime performance with a clean sweep of race wins, with Neive Holmes second ahead of Enduro pro Jane Daniels in third. Tanisha Thomas was fourth and extended her lead in the championship with her closest rival Ellie Sleigholme in 5th.

Brian Wheeler continued on from where he left off at round 2 in the Vets class with two race wins but a blip in his scorechart blighted his hopes of a maximum but he still went home with the overall.  With it tight at the top of the standings Danny Blakely edging out Richard Collins for second could be pivotal come the end of the season and it means Blakely now leads the series by a slender two points over Collins.

Another rider to celebrate a five ride maximum was Andy Watkins in the Over 50 class who was followed home in each race by Chris Brown who had a good day at the office and clawed enough points back on his championship rivals to move into pole position in the race for the title. Rob Prosser couldn’t finish ahead of Brown in any of the 5 races so he succumbed his championship lead to him by 10 points setting the remainder of the season up to be an epic dual between the two.

A stacked Junior Open class made for great racing and it was Ross Neville who took the overall victory and in doing so has pulled out a massive 100 point lead in the championship standings. With the results up and down Ollie Rutter some 40 points down on Neville finished second with Jordan Toland who had won two races suffering with inconsistent results and came third.

The next round of the series is over the water at Doon in Ireland on the 9th and 10th June. For more information on the series or to find out how to get a wildcard ride visit https://www.facebook.com/AcerbisNationals/
