The youngster from Leicester raced on the Grass most weekends, travelling up and down the country. For his dedication, he has been rewarded. Butcher’s 2019 included 4 meeting victories and an impressive rostrum finish at the Sand Ace British Championships in Guernsey. He also competed in his very first British Masters Final, where he finished just outside the semi-final places.

Daniel Winterton, another journeyman of the sport, finished runner-up for the second year in a row, and Charley Powell, who has had an excellent season including an impressive British Masters Qualifier victory, finishes 3rd.
There are 85 names on the 500cc solo National Gradings List this season- 13 more than in 2018.
