With two legs completed in every class apart from the 100occ Right Hand sidecars the results were taken from the 2 point scoring rides.

In the 250cc solo’s the victory went to Adam Hawker ahead of Kevin Bull in 2nd and Local rider Ben Ilsley in third.

It’s been a great comeback season for Wayne Broadhurst who went home with the winners trophies in both the 350cc and 500cc solo classes, which was no mean feat as he had to beat the in form Barry Powell in the 350 class who came 2nd, with Stevie Anderson third. In the 500cc class the super busy Ryan Ashcroft was the Runner Up with Chris Watts 3rd.

Chris Mackett put in a good performance to take the win in the Pre 75 solo class ahead of veteran Ian Gutteridge and Stephen Cox.

In the Upright class Tim Curnock enjoyed another great meeting to take the win from 2nd place racer Luke Cox with

Sebastian Steffen third.

Onto the Sidecars.. former Speedway Ace Mark Courtney & Leon Torres kept up their form in the New & Old class with the win followed by Thomas Newton & Dillon Newton in 2nd and Lew Wharton & Lewis Wharton third.

Multiple British Champions Will Penfold & Ricky Pay reigned supreme in the Left hand 1000cc Sidecars ahead of Jim Penfold & Chris Hawkins in 2nd and Alex Balman & Dale Fish 3rd.

With just one leg completed in the Right Hand 1000cc Sidecars the three Heat winners had to share the win who
