Round 4 of the South West Quad Enduro Championships took to the sun baked Coombe Farm in the stunning countryside of Devon.

Report and Pictures by Neil Martin

There was a magnificent turn out of quads for this very popular quad club with around 60 athletes taking to the 6 mile track with woods, muddy ditches, open going, which was going to be a really challenging in the 2.5 hour race in the heat and a little dust, but that did not deter the riders in anyway …where each class had a good turn out

The Expert class was off the line in a blistering fashion and they were covering the course in under 8 minutes! The ever ready and super nice Stourport racer Luke Davies took the class and overall win with Chris Keitch in runner up spot with 3rd place going to Ben Harvey.

4×4 heavys class the mighty quads roared off the line with Mr fabulous himself Graham Illing taking the win with real style, with Richard Harvey taking the runner up spot and 3rd place going to Tyrone Guy.

The 4×4 lights class had a brilliant turn out in the summer sun with the cheeky Lawrence Dascombe taking a much deserved win after the trouble he had at RD3, with 2nd place going to Mark Williams and 3rd place to Dave Owen.

Wow what a class the Clubman is!!!! This class is always a favourite with me and the brilliant 1st place going to Grace Keitch, with 2nd going to Amy Keitch and 3rd place going to Ami Price Draper well done the girls

The over 40s class. the old men of the sport did not disappoint with some very competitive racing with 1st place going to Martin Evison and 2nd place Richard Keitch.  3rd place went to the brilliant rider Michael Yelland he’s one to watch !!!!

The Novice class guys are brilliant. As soon as the flag drops their off like scalded cats!

It was good to see Ami Price-Draper back out on the track after taking 2 years off.

Also a little note Graham Illing lost one of his quads off his trailer which put pay to his son’s racing that day !!!!!!
