In the 125’s Dylan Spencer is on a 14 race unbeaten run and will look to continue that domination and extend his lead when he travels down south this weekend. James Handscomb has been developing as the season has progressed and he is one racer who will keep Spencer on his toes.

Denny Rapson is in control of the 25o 2 Stroke championship with a 50 point lead over Adam Harris who was on fire at Sherwood. Bradley Wheeler, James Lassu and Chris Nuttal are all capable of making a challenge.

The MX1 class is going to go down to the wire, but it’s Lewis Trickett who holds the number 1 spot at the moment but only by 1o points from Ed Briscoe, with Andy Wilson also close enough to still be in the hunt, so expect close racing from this bunch.

Scott Hamilton has amassed a huge 14 race victories this season in the MX2 category which has helped him build up an 82 point lead over Seb Berthiaume, but when it comes to overall round wins Troy and Olly Jones have both relegated Hamilton off the top spot and there are a handful of riders who could all take the round overall.

In the Junior Open class it’s Ben Stanley who commands the series lead but with results varied throughout one of a whole cluster of racers will be ready to close in on the title including Richard Evans, Aiden Carney, Tom Marsh, Finley Smith and Luke Price.

It’s super tight at the top in the Ladies group with all-rounder Jane Daniels holding a slender 6 point lead over Nadiya Jones. Kady Moore has racked up good points in each and every round and sits poised and ready 34 points behind the leader.

Super Vet Brian Wheeler has yet to be defeated in the Vets Over 40 class (by a registered rider) but the likes of Danny Tollett and Danny Blakely will be ultra keen to end that run.

Chris Brown is the man to beat in the Vets Over 50’s but Morton Hannah will be out to reel in the series leader this weekend.
