Tokarz takes quad victory! WOR Events Putoline Quad National Hare Scrambles Series Round 5 – Race Report & Results

by adminJuly 24, 2018

The fifth round of the Putoline Quad National Hare Scrambles series took its place among a packed WOR Events weekend of Enduro at their hugely popular Baden Hall venue in Staffordshire.

The course was a mixture of woodlands, open grasslands, concrete roads and gravel trails giving the Quad racers a huge variety of terrain to get their four wheels into!

Returning to it’s old (and much more popular) Saturday Afternoon slot, at 3pm, the 2.5hr race saw David Tokarz carry on his run of superb form in the 4×4 Expert Class as easily cruised to the class and overall win on his big Can-Am with a smooth and fast 12 lap ride. Runner Up in the 4×4 Experts was Endaf Owen as he matched Tokarz for number of laps but finished a good 8 minutes adrift of the winner. Endaf still doing enough to be 2nd in the overall as well as class results. 3rd place going to Dean Foster on 10 laps after having had power steering problems on lap one, Foster shot back to the van to do running repairs and get back out there for some valuable championship points.

4×4 Clubman was topped by Nick Key after a bar to bar race for the entire race with Eventual Runner Up by only 19 seconds, Neil Martin. Martino and Nick where both on 12 laps and the only riders in class to do so as 3rd place on 11 laps went to Shaun Welleans whom is always there or thereabouts on the podium.

The 2WD Enduro class was won by Laurence Stopps as he powered the machine to a fine 12 laps. The big lad being the Only rider in class to complete 12 laps as forced Shaun Murphy and David Hull into second and third place respectively with both on 11 laps and Murphy taking 7 minutes out of Hull. Hull finishing the race though with a very poorly sounding Honda 450.

A special mention must go to Sheldon Seal, What a quad rider!! He started at the back and by lap 3 was way out in front overall and riding the unforgiving Baden Bumps and woods like he was on a magic carpet. Unfortunately, though a big crash on lap 5 ended his race 55 minutes in as the quad landed on him and hurt his knee, not what he needed as he was using the event as practice for a big upcoming quad race, but fairs fair the lad can fly on 4 wheels.

The Quad rd 5 went off very well received indeed and like state earlier, the Saturday afternoon race slot seemed welcome and my now make a full time return to the calendar. Well done to all the riders that took part and especially to the podium riders in all classes.

WOR as always send a massive thank to all involved in running the events, from staff through to caterers and medics, Sponsors, cameramen and media but most importantly the riders for supporting the events in the masses.
