The programme started with Automatics who coped really well on this hilly welsh track. Roan Delaney dominating this round with 4 super wins but a crash in race 4 when the first 3 went down on the same slow corner allowing Zac Dunton to gain his only win of the weekend, altering the overall series dramatically. Roan taking top spot over the weekend with a consistent Jake Randall runner up. Zac Dunton gained 3rd equal on points with Oli Wheeler, with Rheanna Morgan Rogers producing her best form of the season, hole shotting and always up the front, this young lady was very impressive, Sion Evans completing the top 6.

Local Junior rider Trystan Williams was really on form with 3 wins and 2 thirds usually coming charging through the field to take 1st place Billy Duke having his best weekend usually having to take the runner up spot behind Charlie Palmer, with 3 seconds and a 4th race win took a good 2nd on the podium. The series championship would depend on Charlies luck on the day, uncharacteristically dropping it a couple of times and strong riding by Tomos Wright who took 3rd place relegating him to 4th spoiling the overall result. Kian Thomas surprised a few people as he excelled on day 1 but could not maintain his form on day 2. Carwyn Rosser finished the weekend in 6th spot to complete the weekend standings.

Small Wheel 85 ace Dominic Lancett with 4 race wins and a 2nd in race 4 was well clear on the weekend and in the series. Runner up James Hanscombe winning race 3 and usually in the lead could not hold off Lancett but had a super day and series. Callum Beekan with more than his share of injuries this year was back in action and whilst up with the leaders suffered a puncture but he finished a creditable 3rd. Jaydon Murphy with 3 excellent results and 2 crashes finished 1 point ahead of a very competitive James Smith 5th with Kyle Biggs 6th.

 

Big Wheel 85 pilot Brooklyn Evans took maximum points with battling display and once in front was never challenged. Nathan Bache charged hard all weekend crashing heavily a couple of times really earned his podium position. Mikey Watson holeshotting a couple of races was always in contention despite his first 2 races outside the top 6 he improved with 3 third positions to take 3rd overall. Jamie Evans started runner up spot but was unable to maintain his form finished 4th ahead of Aaron Colley and Joseph Davies.

Senior racing the most competive group saw Dan Wheeler winning the first 2 motos rode safe in the remainder of his races to protect his overall and days results. Kieron Cooke a superb 2nd in race 1 had major problems in race 2 with mechanical problems but he set the track alight for his final 3 races thrilling the crowd as he built up a substantial lead good enough to gain 2nd overall. Jack Biddle and Alex Walton all finishing equal on points with Kieron, Alex dropping the bike whilst in the lead in race 4 could easily have been runner up. Ieuan Morgan saved his best form till last had a 3rd in race 4 with John Collins completing the top 6.

 

AMX rider Karl Haycock took maximum points but he battled hard to get to the front but was never challenged at the flag, Bridgestone mounted Rob Yates another impressive ride with 2 3rds finishing off with 3 second spots aboard his 125cc. Dain Traylor finishing the weekend with consistent results was 3rd, Chris Grindle finishing almost last with a puncture in race 1 raced well to gain 2 2nd places and 2 3rd places behind Rob on day 2. Luke Howlett and Kevin Curtin just 1 point between them completed the top 6.

 

AMX Open went to Shaun Buchan who had a 5 race battle with the fast starting Jonathan Roderick Evans who won races 1 and 2, Shaun taking 3 and 4. With everything depending on the final race, a DNF late on for Evans giving the overall to Buchan with Ryan Bawn taking full advantage to take runner up from Ryan Nicholls in 3rd, Gareth Hudson 4th the unlucky Evans 5th with Jason Barry 6th.

 

Vets Open winner was Neil Thomas never out of the top 3 and taking the spoils on race 2 Lee Barrett was well clear in 2nd from Richard Roderick 3rd Andrew Rockey took 4th, Steve Roderick Evans was 5th with Stuart Rawlings 6th who took 3 super unchallenged wins on day 1 but he did not compete on day 2.

VETS 125cc – Fred Smith had a great weekend with a 2nd in his opener to Wynne Pickersgill, but he picked up the pace to finish unchallenged in his next 4 races. Bridgestone mounted Mark White finished 2nd with another Bridgestone mounted rider Mark Fereday in 3rd.

With the West Midlands Evo only doing the second day provided some good entertainment on these pre 85 machines, overall in the open group was a real battle with Nick Selwyn winning the opener but despite all his efforts he could not get the better of Carl Pope in race 2. Everything depended on race 3 but it was Pope who took the spoils from Selwyn in close contention. Kevin Butcher fast out of the gate took 3rd.

In the West mids Evo 125cc group the results went to Anthony Giles well clear on points of Paul Mansall with Nigel Green the West Mids Series co- coordinator in 3rd, with a good line up of riders everyone taking a lot of interest in these older bikes.
