It’s Robson’s Mountain – WOR EVENTS QUAD NATIONAL HARE SCRAMBLES Round 5 – Race Report and Results

by adminJuly 10, 2017

The fast and furious pace of the 5-mile open mountain Hare Scrambles course at Robs Mount 2 that WOR Events laid on for the Quads last weekend was received with open arms and big smiles as the National Hare Scrambles series for the ATV’s hit round 5. A very sunny, windy and dusty track was on offer although with so much wind around powering the huge wind turbines at the venue, the dust was not a problem.

John Robson was in scintillating form on his 450 Suzuki as he seemed to float effortlessly around the physically challenging course, soaking all the bumps and natural jumps up with ease. Robson took the overall lead from the leading 4×4 pack of riders around lap 4 and never looked back. Taking the Overall and 2wd Expert class win, Robson on 17 laps placed ahead of Ryan Davies and Tudor Roberts in 2nd and 3rd place respectively on 16 and 15 laps a piece.

Martin Benbow ensured it was Suzuki sitting aloft in the two Expert classes by powering the 750 King quad to a 17-lap score card and a comfortable win in the 4X4 Expert group, Benbow’s rivals in class suffering some technical gremlins throughout the duration of the race as the demanding terrain was taking its toll. Early race leader Jason Wildman and his Polaris team mate, Endaf Owen did themselves proud by dealing with their mechanicals and grafting hard to get the bikes sorted and back out on course to finish and earn those valuable championship points.

Can – Am mounted Graham Guy again was in top shape in the 4×4 Clubman group as he pushed hard from the start to take a 5-minute win time over Runner Up, Dean Foster and third placed Richard Harvey. Foster and Harvey ran very close with only 12 seconds separating them at the end of the 2.5hr race. All the top 3 finished on 16 laps each as did 4th placed Laura Linton making it a Can-Am 1,2,3 in the clubman 4×4’s.

Luke Billington continued his domination this year in the 2wd Clubman class. Billington blasting to a full lap advantage over his closest rival, Alex Trowler. Leon Dean turned his hand from 2-wheel solo endures to the 4-wheeled gang and put himself in third spot on the podium. Billington completed 16 laps with Trowler on 15 and Dean on 14 come the end of the 2 and half hours.

The event ran like clockwork with superb, solid and super safe marshalling along with neat and quick results and presentation awards making a perfect end to this event and another well un round of this growing series, The National Hare Scrambles.

WOR Events would like to as always thank all the staff, land owners, caterers, medics, sponsors, supporters and most importantly the riders for supporting the events.

The next NHS Quad action is the all-important WILDCARD round of the series that runs back to back from this weekend’s event just gone. The WILDCARD is at WOR’s always popular MAESHAFN circuit near Chester this Saturday the 15th July.
