Banks-Browne & Hammal fire in wins at Fatcats! Bridgestone British Masters Round 3 – Race Report and Results

by adminJune 25, 2019

Elliott Banks-Browne made a heroic racing comeback on Sunday as the Bridgestone British Masters rolled into the Fatcat Motoparc at the weekend for round 3 of their championship.

The Geartec Husqvarna rider has been out since early March, but looked like he had never been away by taking both the Pro MX1 moto wins to claim a fantastic overall victory.

Following the usual script, Jake Millward from the Chambers Racing Husqvarna made two lightening Holeshots and kept the lead for half of each Moto before succumbing to the advances of Banks-Browne and having to settle into second ahead of series leader Jake Shipton.  In fact, the top 7 would repeat their positions in both moto’s, so it was Banks-Browne, Millward and Shipton who filled the podium, with another Geartec racer James Dunn riding well for fourth. Robbie Dowson is coming of age on the 450s in fifth with another returnee Luke Burton sixth.

In Pro MX2 it’s super tight at the top with Taylor Hammal and Martin Barr going at it for the title. Barr took the advantage by winning Moto 1, but only by less than a second with Hammal coming from well down the order to be on his rivals rear wheel as they passed the chequers. In Moto2 Barr got caught up in some first bend carnage, leaving Hammal to work his way from another poor start into the lead. From there he cruised home to a great win and his first ever Pro overall, which now gives him the series lead, 8 points ahead of Barr.  Ashton Dickinson made good starts in each race and was solid with a 3-2 scorecard and second overall. Glenn McCormick got the better of Ben Franklin in the final moto to land fourth.

Racing over Saturday and Sunday the youth classes threw up a huge variety of results and race winners, with 4 different 65 racers taking the chequers over the weekend.  With results up and down throughout, the racer with the most consistent points haul would win out, and on this occasion it was Archie-Jay Girdham who didn’t finish out of the top 4 who took the top step of the podium.  Jamie Keith had his best finish of the season with second overall, notching up a race three win in the process, while series leader Freddie Gardiner started the weekend in style with the opening Moto win, but he couldn’t back it up and would finish in third overall. Brandon Buckley’s weekend went the opposite way to Gardiners rounding out the weekend with a race win in moto 4 for fourth overall with Charlie Richmond in fifth. As the series reaches it’s halfway point Gardiner is on top of the standings, just 1 point ahead of Richmond who is just 16 clear of Buckley, who in turn is a further 12 head of Girdham. This is a championship that is going to go down to the wire.

There was a similar theme in the Small Wheel 85’s with another 4 riders firing in with moto wins over the weekend. Billy Askew would take first blood and this win would set him up for the weekend and the overall. Keelan Hope with race 4 glory, would take the number 2 spot on the podium just edging out race three winner Josh Vail who was third. Tyla Hooley had a yoyo of a weekend with a race win and a second mixed in with some low scoring moto’s which means he loses his series lead to Mckenzie Marshall who was Fifth over the weekend and Warren Clarke who sits second in the standings with fourth at Fatcats.

Sam Atkinson was dominance personified in the Big Wheel 85’s and reeled off 4 straight wins for the overall, followed home on each occasion by Ollie Colmer with second. Charlie Palmer and Arai Elcock swapped positions in each moto but courtesy of beating his rival in the final race it would be Palmer with the third.

There was a turn up for the books in the MXY2 class with Wildcard rider Jack Grayshon putting three over series leader Ike Carter to take the overall, with Carter second and Kyle McNichol third.

Troy Willerton got his head down in the 125’s and armed with two moto wins fired in with the overall, and in doing so take over the series lead. Patrick Jackson rode supremely well for second overall with victory in the final moto rounding out a great weekend for him, while wildcard rider Bobby Bruce would finish third, relegating championship contenders Jordan Bachelor and Dylan Spencer to fourth and fifth respectively.

Another Wildcard rider sticking it to the masses was Brad Cavill in the Amateur MX1 class, blitzing the field with a 1-1-1-1 scorecard. Harry Bradley did his title aspirations no harm with second overall from series leader Adam Day in third.

Oliver Benton extended his Amateur MX2 series lead with a mighty fine four wins from four performance, ahead of his closest rival Jack Rowland and Ben Burridge.

It went to a last race decider in the Clubman, with championship front runner Greg Fisher forging ahead of Dean Hakes for the win courtesy of a final moto victory. Max Wood would round out the top three. Karl Jenkinson triumphed in race three, and if he can start to put a consistent run of results together will be a challenger for the top spot in future rounds.

Round 4 of the series takes place at Whitby on the 27th and 28th July.
