As always the Youth racers were super keen, and in the Auto Cadets it was Oliver Bovingdon who reigned supreme.  Cooper Rushen pulled off the Cadet class win, while Kenzie Cossey pinned it, to win the Juniors, and Micky Simpson took the number one spot in the inters.

In the super competitive 250 class young Luke Harris did it for the kids ahead of veterans of David Knowles in second and Graham Thomas in third.

The Vets won out in the 350’s though with Wayne Broadhurst claiming the win ahead of Steve Tideswell and 2018 Formula Grasstrack champ Martin Adams.

Daniel Winterton has had a great season and signed off with the 500cc win from Aaran Butcher who did what he needed to take the Grading list title. Ryan Ashcroft put in a good 500cc performance for third.

Graeme Brown put a stop to Broadhurst’s chance of a double by pushing him into second in the Upright Solo group with Tom Meakins in third.

The entertaining Quad class was won by Paul Munnery over Nick Wright and Vicki Strudwick.

Some of the closest racing was in the GT140 class which is growing in popularity. Karl Rushen rode his socks on to defeat at star studded class including Adam Shipp who finished second and Mitch Godden who was making a rare solo appearance.

Godden on his now more familiar 500cc Sidecar put him and his passenger Paul Smith on the top spot in this class, ahead of Barrie Bennett and Eifion Hughes in second, and the Natasha Bartlett/Curtis McAlinney crew in third.

Colin Blackbourn and Carl Pugh powered their 1000cc sidecar for the top spot on the podoim from the ever improving Tom Cossar and Gareth Williams outfit in second and Gareth Tregilas and Stuart Mears third.
