Big wheels got our weekend on the way with some spectacular riding on display. Casey Kennett made sure that he was on the podium for the trophy presentation in the afternoon. His results of 4,2,3 meant he had secured this. Fabian Junior was also towards the front in the race, managing to win the first race and finish second overall. It was in fact Ashton Somerville who took the top step on the day with results of 2,1,1.

The premier class was again mixed with the MX1 class. However this didn’t stop Morris from getting stuck in. Disaster struck in the second race when a puncture sent him over the bars meaning that he had to settle for third overall on the day. This meant that he had basically handed the win to Brad Humphrey who didn’t win a race all day but still claimed the overall. He went 2,2,2. Fraser Turner came second after 3,1,4.

Niki Watts took the win in Race one of the MX1 class but after pulling out due to hand injury he paved the way for Travis Reynolds to win the next two races. Travis did this in fantastic style uncontested (2,1,1). Jake Strange finished second overall with his results of 4,5,2. The podium was rounded off by Shay Arnold who went 6,3,3.

The Mx2 class was swept up by Luke southern (1,1,1). Who yet again showed his class his future potential in racing. Ricky Carter was a distant 2nd to Southern but consistent racing meant that his podium space was secured. Third place was battled for by a mixed bag of riders including Jack Milsted and Reece Sanders. But ultimately Steve Turvey was the one to round off the podium.

Joe Cracknell looked like the man to beat in the Rookies after a fantastic race win in Moto one. Race two didn’t go to plan which put him off of the podium, but race one was still one to remember from this season. Sonny Shipton took the win overall with results of 2,2,2. Levi Saunders was also consistent and grabbed second overall. Tyler Kirby finished off the top 3 after a 10th in race 1 but two wins in the final two races.

The Autos made light work of the Culham circuit. Tommy wood won all 3 motos with ease, something we have seen many times this year in the championship. Freddie Graham was also consistent and managed to pack himself a result of second overall after 2,2,2. Austin Edwards rounded out the top three.

Jake Dixon gained a surprising third overall in The 65s after his results of 4,9,5. Archie Stapley rode his way to 2nd overall. He did this by clinching results of 2,2,2. Casey Lister was the man to be in the 65s class after going 1,1,1.

Small wheels were last out on the day and therefore had to deal with the roughest circuit. Marley Alder battled hard to secure his 3 moto wins. This meant that he of course claimed first overall. Toby bond went to 2,2,2 for second. Harley Ince took the last step on the box.
