Dave Tokarz is an old school WOR rider that has been absent from the scene for a while and he made a welcome return with a stunning ride to take the overall win and a the 4×4 Experts class with a super strong and smooth performance. Tokarz on his Can Am 1000cc finished 1 and a half minutes ahead of Scotland’s Craig McCormick and a further 2 and half minutes ahead of The Hard Charging Dean Foster in 3rd place. All on 10 laps each and making it a 1/2/3 for Can Am.
Bradley Price was the only 2wd Expert to finish and in doing so he topped the group with 9 laps to his credit.
Sean Wealleans was in good form in the 4X4 Clubman and took the win, but it might have been a bit different if Danny Lloyd had not gotten a puncture on his Suzuki and had to stop to borrow a new wheel. Wealleans and Lloyd being the only riders in class to complete 9 laps. 3rd placed Clubman 4×4 went to Neil Martin on 8 laps with a determined, muddy ride.
As always, the biggest class is the 2wd Clubman and a good turn out had Neil Sweeny out in front of that group by being the only rider in class to complete 9 circuits. Runner up to him was David Hull with Lee Carpenter in 3rd place. All the quad riders looked absolutely knackered as they crossed the line to get their congratulations from the event Boss, Steve Ireland, and all fully deserving of it too.
