Twist and Shout! STOMP Tallington Twister Grasstrack – Rundown and Results


Duck Smart

The STOMP club signed off the 2019 Grasstrack season with their Tallington Twister event last Sunday. Despite some dreadful weather on the run up to the meeting, the circuit held up long enough to serve up 3 heats of racing. By this time, the racing surface had become very difficult, and the decision was made to halt racing after the third set of heats.

Former British Youth Champion Ollie Binns made the step up to the increasingly popular Junior class and managed to land a place on the rostrum. Austin Riches signed off his excellent season with a win, ahead of Channel Islander Thomas Vining. Riches now heads to the Intermediate class where we hope to see his promising career progress. Once again, 14 competitors made sure that there were big Gradings Points available to the riders.

Two former British Champions, 1992/1993 champion Graham Thomas duelled with 2004 champion David Knowles in some fine racing by the duo. Knowles came out on top, beating youngster Jake Mulford in two of their heats.
Daniel Winterton finished another solid season in the 500cc solo class with a victory. He twice beat another the sports hot prospects, Charlie Brooks, when the pairing met. A non-finish in Brooks’ final ride meant that he finished outside the top 6. Similarly, Gradings List champion Arran Butcher rode well in his first and last ride, but no points in his second ride pushed him out of the top 6.

Mark Richardson made a rare appearance on the Grass to claim the runners-up placing, with Ryan Ashcroft winning his last ride to finish 3rd.
