Flack Blasts Driffield Away!! RAW Enduro Rock Oil Enduro Champs Round 1 – Race Report and Results

by adminMarch 6, 2019

Riders came in their masses to Driffield to kick Start the RAW Enduro Rock Oil 2019 Championship last Sunday. With super dry weather on the east coast in recent weeks Driffield was absolutely prime for Enduro Hare & Hounds racing.

Wayne Braybrook designed and built a huge 6 mile track which had lots of new loops as well as the cool fully graded MX section close to the paddock.

The Largest ever Youth Line up saw no less than 38 Youth riders ready to do battle. A half size lap had a great loop for youth riders at around 10 minutes per lap. Billy Haigh was a class act on Sunday taking a well deserved Youth A win on his CarCredit365 KTM. His nearest Rival John Stanley was on good form until two small crashes stopped him getting right on Haigh’s heels. Runner up was a great start to Stanley’s Championship. Youth B honours went to an on fire Hayden Stansfield who finished one lap up on hard-charging Liam Turner. Liam just missed the time cut staying on the lead lap by 22 seconds. Charlie Page now getting used to his bigger bike took a good third place trophy home. Conner Gulbrandsen was the runaway winner in the Junior 65 class on 8 laps, with young Jack Houghton runner up and Theo Nicholson in third. Well done all kids and thanks to all parents and helpers for making this championship what it is.

Joe Townsend

Onto the packed Adult race, which started slightly later than scheduled, due to sheer volume of riders needing to sign in. RAW Track marshals linked in the second half of the Driffield track for the adults, and after the event safety briefing, all riders were flagged away onto the track without any first corner bunching.

Curt Moore

Luke Flack was lead rider around lap one and never looked back all race, using his MX skills Flacky ripped the Acklams Beta 200 around Driffield to take the overall win. New RAW Expert club member Rob Francombe got his season off to a flying start with a close runner up place, with last years Expert Champion Marc Vardy was happy with his points haul in a steady third at R1. Fresh from MX Curt Moore opened his Clubman championship campaign with a cool win despite learning fast on fuel stops mid-race. Richard Taylor upgraded to Clubman for 2019 and was happy enough with his second place and points to boot. Sam Chapman held a close third in a very competitive clubman class. Vince Harker ran out Elite Vets winner with Lee Stansfield back racing after a year out injured in runner up spot. With the course in really good shape and riders lapping at an average of around 14 minutes per lap the top spots were changing all race. James Cooke Thomas grabbed a great Sportsman Elite win, Kris Farrar Damian Lord and Andy Kirby were the top three Sportsman Vets, all completing 9 laps with only 4 seconds separating Lord and Kirby! Ben Fenton was really happy with his Sportsman class win, ahead of Carl Howes and Shaun Downing filling the other two top spots respectfully.

With a huge Novice line up this opening race of the season was always going to be a measure of the year to expect. Rees Leonard topped the class on his Gas Gas with Alan Waller in second place now getting really used to 2 stroke power for 2019. Dean Butler grabbed third in what promises to be a hard-fought championship this season. In the “Gentlemans” Over 50 class Colin Mills was winner ahead of Bill Hewitt in runner up place. Rob Swinbank loved every minute of this first race and was rewarded with third plate trophy for his efforts on the day. Finally, three Ladies class riders graced round one with Simone Wallis taking the win after early race battles with Olivia Knight, Olivia was more than happy with runner up as Leanne Field grabbed third place on 6 laps completed.

Driffield never disappoints, with unusually mild winter conditions could not have been better for the time of year.

A Fantastic start to the Rock Oil Championship was sadly smashed to pieces Sunday night when RAW were victims of organised crime and almost all our equipment, Quads, timing devices, stock, and tools were stolen from a vehicle and premises. This appears to be more than just petty crime, the Police force are now dealing with the enquiry along with CSI processing DNA gathered from the scene. We will not let these toxic individuals stop our business running, despite their best efforts and literally cleaning us out, Round 2 will go ahead at Ripon on March 30/31st where Ellington Banks MOD testing ground will play host. Thank you to everyone who has offered the loan of equipment to get us through this difficult time.

See you all at Round 2!!!

Gratitude as always to everyone who plays a part in the success of RAW Enduro as the club establishes its reputation for providing top end events, for all level of riders. Get well soon Joe Townsend who suffered a nasty fall whilst running a very strong race in the Expert class.
