The hour-long dry and overcast event covered fast, arable straights and tight, twisty woodland for the youth lineup. It was Sudbury member Harry Fordham from Maplestead who got a cracking start, taking the first corner and holding this strong position till lap three, where regular competitor and consistent top 3 finisher Frankie Burns, a Norfolk & Suffolk Junior MCC member, took up the challenge working his way up the field and doing battle with Lucas Charles and fellow Sudbury member Bury based Finlay Roper for final top 3 podium positions. Harry finished one lap behind on 12 laps to the 13 laps of the top 3 within 42 seconds of each other after a strong hour-long battle.

This series of youth events has been a natural progression for the local young riders practising on the youth track, one of 4 courses that GH Motorcycles of Colchester runs in its eight fun days they hold over the year in close collaboration with the Sudbury club. Regular young riders who make the commitment to compete in the season of races are supported with team shirts and offered tips & training during the monthly practice sessions held over a number of venues around Halstead, Essex. Next round 5 of 7 is on the 1st September at Pebmarsh.
