Bewdley Bog Fest – Bewdley Grasstrack Race Report & Results

by adminOctober 6, 2017

A good line up of Racers assembled for the Bewdley Grasstrack Meeting at Lowe Farm but they had to contend with some pretty horrendous weather and tough conditions.

The lower cc classes were fully welcomed at this event and Marcus Crutchington took home the 125cc solo win whilst Darren Rolph headed home all challengers to gain the top spot in the GT140 group.

Veteran Graham Thomas showed he still has it in the 250cc solos, with Barry Powell continued his tremendous season in the 350’s with victory over Wayne Broadhurst.  Ryan Ashcroft finished off a superb weekend for him with a win in the 500c solos after winning the Formula grasstrack meeting the day before.

Neil Copestake was the victor in the Upright solo class, whilst Richey Guest prevailed over Lester Denham in the Pitbike class to take the win.  In the Pre 75 class Ian Gutteridge took the honours on the day.

In the 1000cc Right Hand sidecars it was Jeff Measor & Gareth Tregilgas who stood on top of the podium and in the  500cc new/old Sidecar class Thomas Newton & Dillon Newton won out.

A good entry of Youth races battled hard in the sticky conditions with one eye on the British Youth Grasstrack Championships this weekend.  Ollie Binn’s won the Auto class over George Colvin, whilst in the Cadet class it was Thomas Vining who took the win.  Another rider having a great season is Aidan Arthur, and he backed this up with a win in the Youth Junior class.  There were also MX 85cc classes with Luke Garnder winning in the Small Wheels and Stephanie Tovey in the Big Wheels.
