Shipton & Ellis on top at Hawkstone! Bridgestone British Masters Round 5 – Race Report and Results

WP

The penultimate round of the Bridgestone British Masters took place at the world-famous Hawkstone Park at the weekend with this highly popular circuit not disappointing the riders with the loamy sand surface being in top shape following a downpour of rain in the later evenings.

Jake Millward set the fastest lap time in the Pro MX1 / Pro MX2 qualifying session with a time of 2:05:672. Jake has set the fastest qualifying session so far at all the Bridgestone British Masters rounds and has took away the £150 associated prize money. All eyes will be on Jake at the final round to see if he can make it a clean sweep. In race 1, Elliott Banks-Browne managed to chase down Jake Shipton and Jake Millward for the win with Martin Barr taking a comfortable lead in the Pro MX2 class. Sadly, both Elliott Banks-Browne and Martin Barr had mechanical problems in race 2 affecting their score with pulling out of the race early with Martin getting a rear wheel puncture towards the start of the race; Martin however kept a slow pace but managed to stay out on the track to claim some points. It was Jake Shipton who took the won in race 2 for the Pro MX1 class with Jay Hague taking the win in the Pro MX2 group.

Charlie Richmond was the rider who set the fastest lap time in the Junior 65cc qualifying session and also went ahead and won race 1 with Freddie Gardiner 23 seconds behind in second and Jamie Keith in third. Freddie Gardiner came back fighting for race 2 and beat Charlie for the win. Charlie however came back and won race 3 but Freddie won race 4 giving him the upper hand over the weekend despite both riders being tied on points.

Tyla Hooley obtained first place in the Small Wheel 85cc qualifier and went on to win all four races. The battle was on further down in the pack for the remaining top spots with Billy Askew, Shaun Mahoney, Mckenzie Marshall and Warren Clarke all fighting for a space on the podium and for those valuable points.

Sam Atkinson set the fastest lap time in qualifying, however, had a difficult first race and lost valuable points after finishing towards the end of the pack with Ollie Colmer taking the win. Ollie Colmer took the win in race 2 with Tyler Graves in third and James Barker in third. Sam Atkinson managed to pull a win in race 3 but Ollie Colmer finished close behind in second and Raife Broadley in third. Sam once again took a win in race 4, however this was not enough and Ollie Colmer left Hawkstone Park with the first place trophy.

Max Ingram set the fastest time in the MXY2 Youth Qualifying 1.669 seconds ahead of Ike Carter. Ike managed to win the first race with Tom Murphy in second and Aaron Patstone in third. Ike managed to win the remaining races over the weekend with Max Ingram, Tom Murphy and Aaron Patstone battling it out for the remaining podium spaces. Ike now goes into the final round looking to take the overall championship win early on the Saturday due to his extensive championship lead.

The 125cc group was fierce as only a handful of points seperates the riders for the championship. James Cottrell set the fastest time in qualifying with an impressive time of 2:18:888. It was Preston Williams who won race 1 with James Cottrell and Patrick Jackson following closely behind. James Cottrell won race 2, 3 and 4. However the battle was on between Preston Williams, Buster Hart, Jordan Bachelor, Dylan Spencer and Troy Willerton for the remaining top spots. Going into the final round only 2 points separates each rider so we can expect some nail-biting action from this group at Cusses Gorse!

Greg Fisher took home the first place trophy in the Clubman class but it was Karl Jenkinson who set the fastest time in qualifying. Scott Bates won race 1 with a 5.618 second lead over Greg Fisher in second place. Greg Fisher won race 2 with Mark Kinsley finishing in second and Scott Bates in third. Fisher went on to win races 3 and 4 with Scott Bates in second and Max Wood in third.

Scott Aldridge set the pace in the Amateur MX1 class with Lee Harrison and Gareth Artus closely following behind. It was Gareth Artus who won race 1 with Harry Bradley in second and Lee Harrison in third. Lee Harrison however charged into the lead of race 2 with Gareth Artus in second and Harry Bradley not too far behind in third. For race 3, Adam Day took the win with a 7 second lead over Artus in second and Harrison in third. For race 4 it was Harry Bradley’s time to win the race with Scott Aldridge in second and Gareth Artus in third.

In the Amateur MX2 class Oliver Benton stormed into the lead of the qualifying session ahead of Josh Greedy and Ryan Allison. Oliver went on to win races 1 and 2 but Josh Greedy took the win in race 3. In the final race of the day Oliver once again took first place with Josh Greedy in second and George Clarke in third allowing Oliver to take the overall win for the weekend.

The final round takes place at Cusses Gorse on the 31st August & 1st September.
