Scintillating Sills! Dursley Southwest Challenge Shield Round 1 – Race Report and Results

by adminMarch 20, 2019

After 3 windy days of heavy showers, the sun was shining on Sunday morning to greet the riders at Minchinhampton ready to race in the 1st Round of the Dursley Southwest Challenge Shield…

The track became very demanding through the first block as deep ruts formed, but it dried out as the day went on, but it remained a very technically demanding track, and riders certainly had to think about and pick their lines with several riders falling in ruts.

A rain shower in the afternoon made the conditions very tricky with the hardened ruts becoming very slippery especially for the young 65 and Autopilots.

Young Nixon Coppins rode to victory in his first race meeting on a real MX track in the UK in Small Wheel Autos. It was nice to see Grandad Mike Church running around the track after him! Zach White rode his heart out to finish a fantastic 2nd, with 3rd place honours going to Jake Dixon.

Luca Tatchell powered to 2 race victories and recovered after a crash in race 2 to take the overall in Big Wheel Autos. Marley Alder was only 4 points behind him finishing 2nd with Charlie Mitchell racing to 3rd place.

Ollie Bubb dominated the 65 class with 3 race wins. Ben Casey and Kenzie Cole with consistent rides came in 2nd and 3rd respectively.

In the Small Wheel 85’s Harvey Antrobus was robbed of a clean sweep by Ashton Phillips in race 3, with those 2 finishing 1st and 2nd respectively.  Harlow Green rode consistently to take the 3rd podium position.

In the Big Wheel 85 class, Archie Pocock was flying on his KTM however a DNF in race 2 dropped him to 7th place leaving Yarin Evans to take the overall, followed by Matt Tolley and Tom Butler.

The Youth class provided close racing at the front with Ethan Sills proving his fitness by prevailing in all 3 races to take a maximum 3 wins. Liam Gale and Callum Baldwin provided the competition in 2nd and 3rd.

Brian Wheeler excelled in the Vets class winning all 3 races, beating all of the Over 35’s and 45’s even though he is over 50!! Young Neil Thomas took the 3 wins in the Over 35 class.

Charlie Wood won the first 2 Adult Senior races, but he no transponder, so the honours fell to Aaron Paskin. There was close racing throughout the Seniors.

The Adult Juniors win was taken by Adam Dixon, but a special mention to Tom Edwards who hit the start gate in the 3rd moto starting dead last fought his way into the lead by the end of the first lap. Soon after he crashed on a tricky right-hand bend, dropping him to 3rd, but he fought his way back to 2nd within a second of Dixon at the chequered flag.

There was fast and furious racing from Shane Carless (no transponder) in the combined Adult Experts / 2 Stroke class, who was training for the AMCA champs along with Jansen Day.


All went wrong for Jenson in the 3rd race on the treacherous 1st bend. A pile up saw Jenson ending up on top of Bradley Wheelers bike with the back wheel burning through his race pants and giving him a sore “tushy” as he reported later.

Bradley remounted to finish 2nd in his class to go with his wins in races 1 and 2, and giving him the overall in the Open 2 Strokes.

The 125 / 150 2 Stroke class provided 3 race wins for Chuck Davies whose great effort enabled him to run in the top 7 in all 3 races.

Dursley MX would like to thank all riders and families for their support and would welcome them back for Round 2 of the Southwest Challenge Shield on April 28th at the popular Frocester hillside circuit. Photos of the event are available from Summers Photography.
