The faster the better for Hales! Indian Motorcycle UK Flat Track National Championship Round 5 – Race Report and Results

by adminAugust 13, 2018

Round five of 2018 Indian Motorcycle UK Flat Track National Championship presented by the DTRA (Dirt Track Riders Association) took place on August 11 on the beautifully groomed deep cushion half-mile circuit at Amman Valley Trotting Club. With poor weather preventing the finals from running podium places were awarded using points accumulated throughout heats. Sunday’s planned round six was cancelled because of heavy overnight rain.

In the Pro class heats Toby Hales was in a class of his own winning all three heats regardless of where he started on the grid. Maximum points gave him the overall win for the day. Maikel Dijkstra rode well with a third and second before winning his final heat to claim second. Greenfield Racing’s Gerard Bailo from Spain was once again on the podium after winning his first heat, then taking a third and second for third place overall.

The Intermediate class continues to see huge improvements and beach racer George Sturgess was having a good day on the long fast track. He took a win in his first heat followed by two second place finishes to take the overall in the class. Westley Agius was also on top form taking a third, first and second to claim the runner up position, while Sean Kelly came second, third and first in his heats to round out the podium.

In the Vintage class both two and four-strokes bikes were racing together but would receive separate podium awards. In the two-strokes Mike Fisher continued his solid season with a win ahead of Darren Legg and Nick Ashley, who finished second and third. In the four-strokes it was local rider Guto Llewelyn who showed them how it should be done winning all three heats on his lovely JAP to take the win. John Harrison had a consistent day for second with Norm Joss continuing to improve as he nabbed third.

The ever competitive Thunderbike class saw Westley Agius continue his good form as he took three straight wins in the heats. Anthony Brown’s second, third and first gave him enough points for second, with Dan Ridge having two third place finishes and a win for third overall.

In the Minibike Stock class there was no arguing with Paul Young’s three first place finishes as he took the top step on the podium. Two wins and a second saw Sean Kelly take second with Geoff Cain taking third overall following three second place finishes. In the Minibike Modified class Scott Faulkner’s two wins and a second were enough to secure him the overall for the day. Three third place finishes were enough for second for Freddy Trott, while three fourth places saw Jeremy Skipp take third.

The Rookie class continues to show improvement and it was Andrew Horner-Glister who was untouchable with three heat wins for the overall. Douglas Read took two wins and a third to take second for the day and Terry Pyewell’s third, first and second were enough to see him grab third.

In the Youth Senior’s it was Jack Bell who took the win with Archie May second and Max Inman third. In the Youth Intermediates, which is a fiercely competitive class now, Fergus Bluff took the win ahead of Ted Wilkinson in second with Luke Gardner third. Wyatt Hopkins continued his great form for the win in the Youth Juniors while Wilbur Skipp and Maddie Banks took second and third respectively.
