Weekend Warmer! Wor Events Wulfsport Winter Quad Enduro Round 2 – Race Report & Results

by adminJanuary 8, 2018

It was a blue sky day for Saturday’s round 2 of  Wor Event’s Wulfsport Quad Winter Enduro, which although the sun shone, it was a freezing Bala forest which was presented to the racers who had to battle the 7.5 mile course.

At 1 pm a very healthy line up of quads took to the start line for a 2-hr battle of the same tricky, winter Enduro track and as always they attacked the event with determination an d speed coupled with the skill of keeping them very fast and heavy machines floating over the Enduro terrain that was thrown at them. Martin Benbow and John Robson are old quad fighting mates and rivals from the past and this race was so close between them from start to finish. Both completed 7 laps each and only 3 second separated them at the end of the bitterly cold battle. Dean Foster shows he is worthy of his Expert class ranking now as he completed 7 laps and took 3rd spot in this 4×4 Expert Class. Bradley Price was the only 2wd Expert out and duly completed 6 laps to take the gold.

4×4 Clubman where on top form and it was great to see Stuart Marley back and topping the group with a 3-minute advantage over the ever-improving Sean Wealleans with both riders on 7 laps each. Danny Gilligan was on 6 laps to take the Bronze podium placing in that class. All riders in the group coping well with the trying conditions.

The 4×4 Lites is a growing group of riders and it was Derek Burns with a 2-minute advantage over Runner Up, Kev Jones with Lathan Pritchard in 3rd place that organised their podium. 6 laps being the score for the race for them.

Andy Homer was top man in the 2wd Clubman and he was the only rider in class to complete 6 laps. Runner Up was Neil Sweeny with Lee Carpenter in a solid 3rd place.

Top marks to all the quad Guys and Girls for a solid ride in the winter conditions. WOR Events next round of the Winter series is on February 18th and the 4th and final round will be on March 4th.

WOR wish to as always thank the land owners, staff, medics, caterers, sponsors but most of all the Riders for supporting the events and making them happen. Happy new year and here is to a cracking season ahead.
