Acerbis Amateur Nationals Round 2 – Race Report and Results

by adminMay 9, 2019

After a brutal start to the series at Fatcats it was onto the legendary Hawkstone Park for the second round of the 2019 Acerbis Nationals and with the track crew doing a mega job the racing we were all provided with was top notch action.

In the Vets Over 40 class Brian Wheeler’s experience around the sandy Shropshire circuit paid off as he took four wins out of the five starts to claim his second overall victory of the year, but he didn’t have things all his own way this time around. Ryan Voase took the other moto win in the rough final race on Saturday which helped him upto third overall. Factory Phil Mercer was also in the mix and he was rewarded runner up step of the podium after all was said and done just edging out Voase by a few points. Danny Blakeley took home fourth on his 500 Kawasaki and Adrian Bradley finished fifth.

It was Andy Watkins and Chris Brown that dominated the Vets Over 50 category sharing the wins and runner up places between them and they both went into the final race of the weekend all tied and winner would take all. Watkins was the man to take his Kawasaki to finish line first and with it the overall verdict with Brown having to settle for second this time around. Dave Dunn finished the weekend with 4-4-3-3-3 results to bag third overall while championship contender Morton Hannah took home the fourth place overall.

Amie Goodlad

Ladies championship leader Jane Daniels took three third place finishes on day one but because of competing in the Scottish six day trial in Monday she was unable to race on day two blowing the door wide open for a new series leader by the end of the weekend. Amie Goodlad was the overall winner with four wins and a second to take the victory by six points but was pushed all the way by race four winner Neive Holmes. Charlotte Hall will have taken the series lead into Dean Moor as she took home third on the podium.

Charlotte Hall

Ben Stanley carried on his form from Fatcats as he took home a maximum haul of points in the Junior Open class and extended his already 38 point lead to a much larger gap as he took the overall by 34 points, but will things change when we go from the deep sand of rounds 1 and 2 to the much faster and smoother Dean Moor in a months time? Only time will tell. Sam Hamer looked set for runner up overall but a last jump crash in the final race cost him a few spots and put him tied on points with eventual runner up Aiden Carney. Ollie Rutter and Richard Evans rounded off the top five respectively.

Gregor Campbell

In the 125 2 Stroke category even a bad start couldn’t keep Dylan Spencer from racking up five wins from five starts as he took a maximum haul of points home and the biggest pay packet. Jimmy Margetson and James Hanscombe both had their bikes out front at some point over the weekend but the CPS Husky of Spencer was too fast when it got rough so the pair had to settle for second and third places respectively. Stu Owen tagged onto and mixed it up with the leading trio in a couple of the motos and eventually finished fourth and Richard Collins had another solid weekend for fifth.

James Hanscombe

The 250 2 stroke category provided some of the best racing as in race four championship regulars Denny Rapson, James Lassu, Adam Harris and Kane Rumble were joined by Hitachi KTM rider Oliver Benton in a five way dual for the lead. With Benton out of the overall classification due to only riding Monday it was once again between Rapson and Lassu for the honours and they both went into the final race tied on points. Rapson got the upper hand in the final race however and managed to hold off Lassu to claim the overall honours. Brad Wheeler stayed consistent over the weekend and took third on the box with Ryan Butler finishing fourth.

Steven Riley

It was the defending 2 time MX2 champ Scott Hamilton on his KTM that took maximum points to head back over the water to Ireland with along with the series lead after his DNF at Fatcats. Marshall Smith was solid all weekend and ended with 2-2-6-2-2 results to stand on the runner up step of the podium. The second Irishman on the rostrum was Jordan Martin, who started the weekend tied on points for the championship lead, took home another solid points score with third overall. Sammy Bereford and Ashley Beniston took home fourth and fifth places.

Olly Jones

A second, three wins and a sixth was just enough to secure the reigning MX1 champion Edward Briscoe the overall victory at Hawkstone as he fought off the attentions all weekend of opening race winner Lewis Trickett. Trickett could have had a couple of results gone his way in a couple of races but backmarkers came into play and cost him a couple of points that could be vital in the title fight come September. 2017 champ Andy Wilson took third overall ahead of Brad Cavill who, if a race four tenth had been upto his usual top three placing, could have had a higher overall positioning.

Matt Readman

The series now moves on up north and to Cumbria at the always scenic and perfectly prepared Dean Moor circuit at the beginning of June for Round 3.
