With the sun Rising and overlooking the valley circuit, the water was on standby before practise was ready to go down and as the first group of Experts hit the track it was clear that with the south west forecast being clear the circuit was going to need dampening through the day which was great for this time of the year following a damp day in Devon at the previous round.

The Expert’s had a good line up again with the championship still to be won or lost as things were getting tight at the top between Leigh Williams, Harry Day and Chester Blair jnr. Race 1

Memphis Enright

saw Ben Butler make a return to the series and took a commanding lead out front where he stayed to take the win by 27 seconds from Harry Day in 2nd, Gareth Northam 3rd, Stefan Little 4th and Ross Parkinson 5th.

In Race 2 was Butler again out front with a start to finish win in front of Kieron Yorke by 30 seconds. Gareth Northam had the company of Callum Priddle but managed to hold him off to the line to take 3rd and 4th.  Parkinson again was to finish 5th.

It was a hattrick of wins for Butler who went from the start of race 3 out front and guided everyone to the finish line by 14 seconds. Day was to take a solid 2nd place in front of Yorke in 3rd, Northam 4th and Priddle 5th.

Race 1 of the Seniors saw the return of Josh Francis who was looking to seal the deal on the championship in his first

Jon Jones – Junior Elite

year as a senior. Francis stormed to the front of the pack from the start and made himself firmly the leader of the pack to take the win in front of Joe Philips in 2nd, Paul Gaylard 3rd, Reagan West 4th and Jordan Veale 5th.

The second Race saw Philips lead the pack for the first few laps but was then caught by Francis who applied the pressure to make a move and took over at the front to secure the win in front of Philips in 2nd, Reagan West 3rd, Ruppert Potter 4th with Taylor Edan in 5th.

Race 3 had Philips again out front, but Francis was there by lap 3 and made a move to secure his third win of the day and more points to his championship campaign. Philips was having a solid day and secured another 2nd place just 4 seconds behind the leader.  Jordan Veale was to book himself another solid ride for 3rd but just behind him by 2 seconds was Brent Harris who finished 4th, with Rupert Potter in 5th

Joe Philips – Seniors

In the Junior Elite  Sean Harry took control race 1 from the start but then Lewis Smith was to get into a rhythm and pulled through to take the lead and the win from Harry in 2nd and Jon Gapper 3rd.  Chris Talbot switching from the Pheonix Tools Spanners for the day and having a go himself to show the riders how its done was 4th, with Jack Murray in 5th.

Race 2 was a good one for Talbot as he took the holeshot and lead on his Honda 250f where he stayed to the finish to secure his first win in a few years. Jordan Hembrow had a solid return ride with a 2nd place, Sean Harry was 3rd, Jack Murray 4th, and Gapper 5th.

The third race was to be a corker with James Davey getting out front early in the race, and it looked like he was going to secure the win, but Hembrow was clawing his way through the field and really tried everything to gain the lead to the point that there was less than a second between the 2 on the line, where Davey

Sam Veale – Youth 9 – 13

secured the win from Hembrow in 2nd.  Talbot had done enough in 3rd to secure the overall on the day, Gapper 4th and Jak Ford with a solid 5th.

The 9 – 13 races were again set to be a high fast pace as Joshua Pethrick wanted to keep his winning streak going in the class with a confident hat trick of wins in front of Jack Carpenter who had a score card of 2-2-2, Same Veale 3-3-3 then it was the battle of the brothers as Joe Corbett went 4-4-4 in front of leo Corbett 5-5-5 but there was some very fast paced action in this class which made it exciting for the 1500 strong spectators in attendance.

The 14 – 17 year class was all still up for grabs with Harry Matthews, back on the Matthews Racing Husqvarna, and Josh Day both raring to go, we were going to be in for a treat. As the gate dropped it was Jay Wells a former 9 – 13 SWOR champion who took to the front and let the field battle it out behind him where he secured the win. Matthews was all over Day and secured a 2nd place from Day in 3rd, Bradley Taylor 4th, and Local man Adam Treen 5th on the Treen Motors KTM.

Race 2 saw Wells again with a start to finish win but the action behind was incredible with Matthews and Day both pushing each others limits and abilities to there full potential with different line choices each lap, along with safe block passes, but it was Matthews who managed to dive the inside line at the finish line and make it work with Day being forced wide on the exit of the corner with Matthews finishing 2nd, with Day 3rd by .2 of a second. Treen was locked in a battle behind in fourth with Taylor 5th.   I

It was a hattrick of wins for the upcoming youth of Jay Wells as he stormed out front of Race 3 and demonstrated to the crowd what he was capable off doing on his Husqvrana 125. Matthews was to have another good ride and gain some good championship points in his title hunt with a 2nd place. Treen was all fired up and had a fantastic 3rd position in front of Day in 4th and Kai Ford in 5th.

The Junior Open Championship was all still there to play for with Domanic Stoneman on the Virgin airways SMS HRC Factory North Devon 250 Honda and John Trevelyan on his 450 What Happened Was Honda, but with no support group being run the gates were full. As the gate dropped it was Chester Blair snr who took a fantastic win in front of Morgan Limpus on the Gibbs Racing Ktm who had a fantastic 2nd place, Trevelyan was 3rd and Ethan Page 4th and Dave Kendall 5th.

Race 2 was another start to finish win for Blair snr in front of Josh Hudson in 2nd, Kendall with a 3rd and Brian Pugsley another title contender 4th with Alex Dovell in a close 5th.

Chester Blair took the hattrick of wins in the group with a fine Race 3 win with Hudson again 2nd, Pugsley was to secure some more series points for 3rd, with Limpus having another good ride for 4th. Stoneman was make some changes to the bike and with some fresh SHIFT kit customised in gold for the day took a solid 5th and some more points.

With the Championship wrapped up its all eyes on the final standings which will be released on the presentation night on the 18th of November at Newton Abbott Race Course.

The Club would like to thank all the marshals, Medics and Committee for there help this season.
