4 Wheeling it. WOR Quad National Hare Scrambles Round 7 – Race Report and Results

by adminSeptember 11, 2017

The WOR Events National Hare Quad Scrambles series rocked up to a brand new event in Ludlow for Round 7 and the penultimate round of its series.   The weather gods shone down on WOR and only a few drop’s of rain fell on the racers as they all looked forward to doing battle on this fantastic 6 mile circuit.

Doing a slightly different course from the solos would be riding the next day,  the 4 wheeled racers simply loved the unique track and safe way it allowed riders to test their machines pace. Polaris mounted Jason Wildman was again the top man as he powered the 1000cc beast to the overall win with his usual smooth and effortless style. Wildman never seems to have problems and keeps the bike out of trouble as his consistency has shown throughout this series. Tom Jones took the Runners up spot on his Can- Am and had a real battle with the quad wrestler that is Martin Benbow. Benbow on a standard Suzuki farm quad is a revelation and how he quite makes it go so fast is a mystery but he certainly does. Martin was lacking in power on the front two 4×4 Expert riders but he was never far away from them and his 3rd place finish was well and truly deserved. All top 3 on 14 laps.Mark French and Tudor Roberts were the top 2 in the 2WD Experts, a class that has died off its seems.

Top 4×4 Clubman was Richard Harvey, Harvey making the long trip up from Devon worthwhile with very steady 14 laps and a comfortable win in class from Danny Gilligan and Andy Perkin in 2nd and 3rd placed respectively. The 2wd Clubman class had Bradley Price, Neil Sweeny and Alex Trowler in that order as winners to 3rd place with scores of 14 laps, and 13 laps.

WOR always send out a huge thankyou to the Landowners, the staff, medics, caterers, sponsors and most of all the riders that support the events in their numbers to make them happen. WOR now move next week to Firbank in the Lake District as the NHS series comes to an end at the final round.
