Here is the season review, class by class…
Harriet Mewse impressed all season to win the 50CC Championship with Beatrix Drinkwater 2nd and Braydon Grounds 3rd.
In the 90CC class it was a close-run battle all year with Jake Robson eventually coming out on top winning the title with 3 wins over the season, 2nd place was Owain Dafydd and 3rd place went to Owen Stephens.
Louie Holt made it 7 wins out of 7 to take the 125cc Championship title. Freddie Robinson was runner up in 2nd with Morgan Junge 3rd. All 3 riders will make the move up to the 250cc class for next year.
In a hotly contested 250cc class James Maybury took the 250cc title following on from last seasons 125cc victory. Mckenzie Evans in his 1st Season was runner up and Cai Evans in 3rd spot.
Tom Bainbridge was the 250cc Hybrid Champion with Daniel Barrow 2nd and Lewis Humphries 3rd.
Andrew Willcock took the Sportsman class championship honours just ahead of Daughter Vassna in 2nd with young Josh Talent claiming 3rd in his 1st season in the 450cc class.
Will Dunlop clinched the Clubman Class Championship with 3 back to back victories in the 2nd half of the season, Dale Roberts was an impressive 2nd and Paul Robinson 3rd having moved up this season from the Sportsman Class.
In the Expert Class Tiago Gomez finished the season with a win at Round 7 to claim the Championship. Luke Richards was Runner up in 2nd with Callum Brookes 3rd. Expect to see these 3 in the Expert Plus Class next year.
The 4×4 lights was a hard-fought class with Shaun Wealleans taking the Championship, closely followed by Mark Williams with Steve Fogarty 3rd.
The newly created 4×4 Clubman class proved to be popular and it was Richard Harvey with 5 victories who claimed the Championship with Neil Martin in 2nd and young Joe Bacon having an excellent season to finish 3rd.
The 4×4 Expert Class was always going to be one to watch with a number of riders sharing the podium throughout the season. There were wins for Simon David, Stuart Marley and Steve Atkins throughout the season, but it was Simon David who eventually did enough to secure the Championship with Stuart Marley 2nd and Graham Guy 3rd.
In the Expert Plus class it was Luke Davies who set the early season pace with back to back wins, but last years’ British Champion Alex Bethell was always close by and took his maiden win of 2019 at Round 3. Rounds 4 & 5 provided Alex with 2 more wins and put some space between himself and Luke. Jamie Bone and John Robson were chasing hard and scored podiums at various rounds throughout the season but there was just no catching Alex and he retained the title to become back to back MCF British XC Champion with Luke Davies 2nd and John Robson 3rd.
