Daly does it again! British Minibike Championships Rounds 3 & 4 – Race Report and Results

FXR

The MBC crew worked minor miracles to get the Champs Parc circuit primed and prepped and in racing order at the weekend after biblical rainstorms on Friday threatened the running of rounds 3 and 4 of the 2020 British Minibike Championship.

After the rain the previous day the track was rotavated on Saturday morning creating a really tacky but excellent surface where the ruts turned into massive berms with the circuit being perfect come Sunday.

In the Kids 50cc class Riley-Ray Barrow was at his supreme best again on Saturday, piling in another three faultless wins to take the round 3 overall over Flynn Kennard who made a good impression on the series in second. Aaron Shepherd-Smith backed up his round one performance with third, ahead of Ethan Georgiou fourth, Freddie Darvill in fifth and Jenson Batner sixth.

On Sunday Barrow would step up to the 65cc class leaving Kennard to show his quality with two moto wins and the overall from Georgiou who rode a storming final moto to take the chequers and second overall. Zach White was consistent all day long with a trio of thirds and the number three spot on the box ahead of Shepherd-Smith, Harry Dearle and Batner.  Talking of Jenson Batner, the lad has made huge improvements this year after being a raw beginner in 2019 and now he is a real contender in this class. Well done Jenson!

With Barrow missing Sunday he now holds a slender 6 point lead over White in the series standings.

Robbie Daly once again turned in a masterclass performance going unbeaten on both days, taking the overall on each occasion giving him a 49 point advantage in the standings. Behind Daly, Jamie Thorpe and Marty Spires swapped second and third places on both days with Frankie Donoghue in fourth both times. On Saturday Riley Northcote was fifth with Kieran Bullock in sixth, while on Sunday Riley-Ray Barrow of 50cc fame brought his A game to the 65cc class and showed he has what it takes to mix it with the front runners with fifth. Bullock was again sixth.

Miley Hodgson was a new name in the Youth Junior class notching the overall on both days. Maddie Banks was second on Saturday over series leader Jamie Clarke who took two race wins and second position on Sunday with Lillie May Stokes third, Banks fourth and Harry Banks fifth.

In the Youth Senior class Ben Casey made his first 2020 appearance and showed his speed to fire in with two moto victories and the overall on Saturday over Series leader Leo Vowles and Championship contender Jake Speller. Jack Perry put in some good rides for fourth, Rocco Lanza was fifth and Ethan Lochrie was sixth.  On Sunday though Speller came back to the fore after winning moto one and keeping consistently in the top three during the day whereas Casey suffered a final moto DNF and Vowles had a low scoring first moto. Vowles would still finish Sunday in second with Lanza making a welcome visit to the podium in third.  Perry was fourth, Lochrie fifth, and Ben Moran sixth.

Word has spread about the Farm Bike class and a full entry lined up on both days giving great entertainment too with some top line Pro MX riders getting involved.  Chris Bayliss went 1-2-1 to win out over former MXGP racer Mel Pocock and series leader Matt Bayliss. On Sunday Matt returned to the top spot fending off his younger brother Chris for the victory with Pocock third.

Jason Edwards was in top form on Saturday taking max points in the Funbike class over Tyrone Tugwell and and Daniel Edwards with the top duo swapping places on Sunday with Edwards third again.

Daniel Foreman continued where he left off at round two in the Masters by taking the victory on Saturday from Scott Joyner and Spencer Howard however the roles were reversed on Sunday with Joyner upping his game and taking all three moto wins and the overall ahead of Foreman and Howard.

It was tight at the top in the Vets class on Saturday with Jay Taylor, Adam Burton and Phil Thomas all taking the chequers in a moto and being separated at the end of the day by just three points and finishing in the order mentioned.  On Sunday though Burton was a different class and he shared the wins with no one and took the overall from Paul Gell and Colin Blackwell with Taylor suffering a costly DNF in moto one which gives Burton a 34 points at the head of the standings.

The Stockmod class only took place on Sunday and it was Dan Lee who would finish as the number one over Joe Banks and John Pohlman.

Ash Gorman is the supreme being of the Superstocks once again going through the card meaning he has been unbeaten in 2020. On both days he was followed home by Lewis and Ben Rose in that order.

In the Pro Class 7-One Racing Bucci rider Blaine Blackwell is having the time of his life and rifled through six race victories over the weekend, taking both overalls and extending his championship lead to 65 points in the process.

Jody Burton and Harry Streeter are at both ends of the experience tree and battled it out for second on Saturday with Burton taking the advantage. On Sunday though Burton crashed out in the first moto while in second knocking himself out and sustaining a shoulder injury counting him out for the rest of the day. Streeter showed his potential and speed with second overall with Daniel Muddiman a solid third.

The final two rounds of the Championship take place on the 26th and 27th September again at Champs Parc. For more info on the series head to https://minibikechamps.com/
