Super Sam! South West Quad Enduro Championships Round 6 – Race Report and Results

WP

Round 6 of the South West Quad Enduro Championship headed to the magnificent countryside of North Devon and the stunning Allercott Pits Farm, at Wheddon Cross near Minehead at the weekend.

Report and Pictures by Neil Martin

The overnight rain and stormy weather did not dampen the riders spirits as a very impressive 44 adult quad racers and 15 youth riders took to the damp but always drying out track.

The track which was near 8 miles long with every thing you could ever want in a championship enduro, with tight woods, ditches and open going .. so fun was the order of the day !!!

There was a few riders here for practice for PDV in France in a couple of weeks time with Jack Price-Draper and Ami Price-Draper doing a team race this time, and with Jack not riding for a few years i’m guessing he will have a few aches and pains. Also the very talented Steve Atkins was here to show us how to do it.

The rider of the day for me was Sam Jeffery. He was in spectacular form, taking the Expert class and the overall win. 10/10 Sam.

The 125cc class saw Charlie Wheatley taking the win. This young lad has a big future.

Also the 250cc class saw a strong field of riders with William Tewson going to the chequered flag in first place. Well done Will.

The Novice class (far from it)…  these riders raced like they have been racing for years and some have, but it was Chloe Keitch crossed the finish line first.

The two man team class saw Danielle/ Rick Whittington / Indge in form with a great win. Well done guys and dolls.

The old men’s class, (40s) with just 3 riders on the start just finishing would see you on the podium, but the holeshot king with 6/6 was the little FELLOW that is Martin Evison, who raved like a pro and took the win.

Next up is a favourite of mine, the Clubman class, and it saw the ladies taking the top 3 with Amy Keitch on the top spot. Well done the girls!

The superstars of the quad world are the 4×4 heavies !!! These magnificent beasts roared off the line and headed into the woods and after 2.5 hours with lots of battles Colin Burnett was first home.

The slightly smaller 4×4 quads (lights class) saw a welcome return in the form of Lawrence Dascombe, as he raced to the top spot on his 570cc Can Am.

Last up are the Experts. The big names were always there with a battle royal between Sam Jeffery, Luke Davies and Zak Orchard, and they finished in that order.

A massive thank you to everyone at Gravity LC for putting on a brilliant track, and again I strongly recommend you should try this club, you won’t be disappointed.  A warm welcome is always there and everyone helps each other, it’s a joy to be involved.

As ever, Joy in the catering van fed us all day, a big thank you to all the members, riders, Marshalls, medical team , and Land owner. A brilliant day was had by all.

See you all soon Martino #371
