The Kids class has blooded plenty of new faces this year and has meant lots of new names making the podium spots, but it’s those riders you have kept it consistent that sit on top of the leader going into this weekends meeting. Ethan Georgiou holds the series lead and you can be assured he will keep within the points this weekend, but he is only two points ahead of Mason Flynn. These two title contenders could be joined by all manner of young talent this weekend so it will be interesting to see the outcome and who will be sitting proudly on top of the leader board at the end of play on Sunday.
Likewise, the Kids 65cc group has seen some fantastic new talent within its ranks with Round 2 winner Max Pridmore on top going into round 3, but the question is who will be there to challenge him??
Harry Lee has been blitzing the Youth Junior class and is unbeaten so far this year. His biggest challenge this weekend will come from Harris Goddard or Ben Johnstone who sit in second and third places in the series standings respectively.
The Youth Seniors is a whole different animal and is crammed with super fast talent. Harry Streeter has been solid so far this year and has taken both round wins but he has a whole bunch of racers looking to hunt him down including Leo Vowles, Jake Speller, Freddy Hills, Alex Dutton, Senna Ace Summers, Ethan Lochrie, Michael Scriven and the list goes on…
In the Masters Matt Chamberlain holds a slender 12 point lead from Jason Gardner, but watch out for reigning champion Lee Mitchell who sits in third spot, as he is not ready to relinquish his title just yet. Also if Round 2 winner Pat Crump or Round 1 winner Jody Burton make an appearance that will make this group very tasty indeed.
Christopher Rose has been an absolute sensation in the Vets this year and has been mixing it with the best in the business. Already he holds a phenomenal 106 point lead over second place Phil Thomas, with Jay Taylor a further 12 points behind him. Will anybody be able to stop Rose this weekend??
Oscar Stearn will be looking to keep his great run of form going in the Stock Mod class as will Simon Vowles in the Super Stock. They will be joined at this round by a new fun class, with the rules being simple. Anything goes up to a 110cc minibike. Could be interesting for sure!
Frenchman Kevin Llamas has been a dominant force in the Pro 160’s this year and is certainly making his mark on the series. Welsh racer Dom Foreman has shown he has the speed on the series leader but he needs to demonstrate this in the final when the big points are dished out. The ultra smooth Blaine Blackwell sits in third in the standings and is another who needs a big final to start to claw in the deficit on the championship leader Llamas. Other contenders this weekend are Ash Gorman, Dave Lamb, Ewan Goddard and Daniel Fisher.
