A Grand Job! Enduroland Putoline Race XC round 5 and London Quad Grand National – Race Report and Results
After a blistering hot mega dry week the team had a shock when on Friday night rain hit the venue at just after 4pm and continued for a few hours. Wind also caused havoc on the Saturday morning with tape and posts and further heavy showers causing more worries as the weekend progressed. The only consolation was it kept the dust at bay.
Saturday morning saw the youth race kick off at 10am with the regular 30 plus entry headed by Jake Roper in the 125cc class leading from start to finish with a cracking ten laps and a 10 minute lap average to also take the overall win. Reilly Dennison came in 2nd on 9 laps, with Jadyn Giles in 3rd. Max Brown was 4th in the 125cc with Flynn Dennison in 5th and Olivia Knight in 6th.
Joe Cornelius bashed the BW class with the win and a credible 7th overall.William Belton was 2nd, Charlie Ricketts 3rd and Morgan Kent 4th.
The SW had Henry Life at the helm for the whole race with an even more impressive 4th overall. John Stanley was 2nd, Jayden Westcott was 3rd and Josh Knight 4th. In 5th was Jack Sandland and 6th & 7th was Oli Newland and Kian Busa respectively.
Eddie Belton headed the 65cc class with Ryan Stoneley in 2nd. Alicia Conduct was 3rd and Reece Giles 4th, Rhys Hill was 6th and Chris Meek 7th, whilst Riley Hill was 8th.
Billy Life took the Auto win with Kieran Maunder in 2nd and Fin Roper in 3rd. Daniel Rosborough moved back to 4th. Liam Wallis was 5th on his debut ride. Nice one Liam.
A big lap for kids with the fun obstacles proving popular.
Straight after the youth race the KADS event ran whilst track changes got made for the impending Quad scramble.
At 4.30pm the four wheel warriors hit their practice lap and although the word ‘practice’ was bantered about most went at full race pace!
This was a new taster event put on by the club to try and find a suitable way to have the quads involved in some weekends and a healthy 28 racers gave it a go.
Race One had Harry Miller bang out a 10.27 lap to to take the Pro/Elite first race win with Ben Richmond close behind.
In the Clubman Olly Martin took the win with Charlie Davis in 2nd, Josh Birch in 3rd and Zack Hull in 4th.

Dillon Stepney took race one in the sportsman class with Danny Gilligan jnr in 2nd, Jim Randall in 3rd, Maddie Martin 4th and Lee Duke in 5th.
The 4×4 quads saw some great racing with Jason Wildman taking first blood. Danny Head finished 2nd and the mad Irishman Danny Gilligan Snr was 3rd.
Last but not least the 250cc class had Dylan McKenna take the first win with Reece Swann 2nd, Chris Gyles 3rd and Brandon Saunders in 4th.
