Key Player! RORE Winter Warmer Enduro Series Round 1 – Race Report and Results

WP

The first round of the 2019/2020 RORE/Dorset Enduro Winter Warmer series, which was the James Wright Memorial race was a mudder, as is a tradition for this event. The Rogershill Raceway held up well to the conditions though it was tough going, therefore, huge thanks to the riders for digging deep and turning up, even getting in the carpark was a challenge!

Josh Player topped the championship class, with a brilliant ride considering the bad luck he’s suffered this year. He kept his head down from holeshot till the chequered flag. Second place was Dom Thomas, who rode consistently with all his lap times being within a minute of each other! Brad Rowland was third, after a steady start he picked up the pace earning the last place on the podium. Fourth place rider was Bravery athlete Brett Rowland who completed the fastest lap of the race and was the last rider to complete 13 laps.RORE Winter Warmer Series Round 1

Ian Fortune got the holeshot in the Expert class, but it was Mark Young who topped the podium! Coming 5th in the overalls, he had a blinding race and just missed out on 13 laps. Brendan Griffiths was second with Giles Richards in third.RORE Winter Warmer Series Round 1

Gary Mccoy mixed it with the best and took the win in the Over 40 Expert class a full lap ahead of Jack Twentyman in second, and Shane Trotter third.

Oliver Mcrae was the first Clubman A rider over the line notching the class win and an impressive 19th overall. Daniel Grove was a strong second in this class followed home by Martin Hallett in third.

In the Over 40 Clubman Simon Thomas put in a great shift to grab the class victory with 28th overall. Mike Rodgers rode well for second with Simon Rodgers rounding out the top three.

Will Burrough was victorious in the Clubman B category a complete lap ahead of Terry Marsh and Lee Lawton in second and third.

The Sportsman class was won by Jon Door on eight laps. Also completing the eight were Lewis Gatt and John Hill who made up the top three.

Greg Tosdevin put in a fine ride to win the Sportsman Over 40 group, fending off Justin Short and Daniel Houghton.

At the end of the day, the James Wright memorial awards were given to two truly deserving Sportsman, since that was the Class that James raced himself. Cameron Robinson won the trophy for the year for being the first to help a friend, even though he had to spend over three hours largely pushing his own bike! The special prize went to Jack Lamble for battling on, crossing the line last but still with a huge grin on his face!
