With the sun shining down on the track, the prep was pure quality with good rain showers in the week and ploughed and harrowed Saturday evening; this was going to be a feast for everyone’s eyes once the racers got out of the gate.
With the tension high and adrenalin pumping, the gate dropped to signal the start of the race meeting. Only one more club championship left and the points are very close in some groups and it will go down to the wire at Clifton, finger biting stuff!
Seniors this was an epic group to watch, these guys really did put on a show with some fantastic battles going on. In the mix for the first race we saw Owen Woodhouse take the win and set the fastest lap time, Owen Taylor having a brilliant first race with a second closely followed by Pip Davies, Ryan Manley and Marshall Smith. Second race it changed with Woodhouse taking the win and the fastest lap time but behind him this time was Marshall Smith, Pip Davies, Kieran Ryan and Fin Smith. Third race we had a new race winner Ryan Manley, Owen Woodhouse close behind and Fin Smith, Kieran Ryan and Pip Davies.
VETS this race we saw the number 61 machine Rob Clark take the wins in race 1 and 3 but set the fastest lap times in every race. Behind Clark we saw Marchant who took the race win in the 2nd race and taking the second spot on the day and then tough battles going on between Deley, Senter, Seldon and Gaunt.
SW85’s. Ethan Sills walking away with three race wins and three very comfortable leads and setting the fastest lap times. Tyler Smith also putting on a fantastic show taking 3 3 2 and Keelan Hope who has just gone up into this group also putting on a great show with some fast lap times. Matt Tolley, Ben Humphries, Will Hyett, Jacob Harley, Brook Jenner and Jake O’Gorman fighting and fighting in each race proved some good battles.
Autos these little pocket rockets were on fire today. Ben Casey taking all three race wins and setting the fastest lap times. 2nd place on the day went to Harley Prickett. With Alfie Casburn and Zane Sibley Deakin, closing in behind.
BW85’s very fast and intense watching this group especially with Charlie and Harvey fighting for the club championship points. James Hyett took all three race wins on the day along with setting the fastest lap times. Charlie Griffiths, Harvey Matthews and Tom Garness all having some very close battles.
NOVICE Jim Park taking the overall on the day with two race wins. Jordan Whitehouse setting the fastest lap times in all three races. Jack Robbins coming in second and Tamara Morgan taking that third spot.
Juniors these three races were pure class from these pilots. Race one we saw the green machine of Ben Mustoe power out of that start gate to lead with a very comfortable gap and setting the fastest lap time in race one, however something happened to his bike in race two and we didn’t see Ben again unfortunately. Race two saw Harvey Jackson take the win with Lincoln Hastead, Zack Lewis and Oliver Rigby battling it out for that 2nd spot. Race three Harvey took the race win with a complete change behind with Zack Lewis, Oliver Rigby and Lincoln Hastead.
AMX saw James Bates putting in the fasted lap times in every race, and taking the chequered flag in all races. Karl Haycock and Craig Perks finishing 2nd and 3rd respectively.
The next Warley Wasps meeting will be Sunday 24th September at Clifton on Teme.
