Rapid Rolph! Youth Auto Cadet National Grasstrack Grading List
Archie Rolph wins the Youth Auto Cadet National Grasstrack Grading List for 2019. The young Essex racer battled it out with Somerset rider Oliver Bovingdon for a good deal of the season before Rolph just seemed to get an edge on his rival.

With Bovingdon moving up to the Cadet class in the latter stages of the season, Rolph was able to grow an unassailable lead in the class. Rolph and Bovingdon have been sensational in 2019. We expect these two to be rivals for many decades to come.
Archie Whitelam, son of former passenger Mark, continued to improve week on week throughout the season, finishing third. Another former passenger’s son, Rylan French (son of Dave) claimed 4th, including some good rides in the British Championships in Cornwall.
14 riders registered in the list for 2019, just one more than 2018.
