Brookthorpe for 2nd round Bridgestone BSMA Series

Bridgestone BSMA Clubman’s Series Round 2 at Brookthorpe

 

The second round of the BSMA Bridgestone Clubman’s Series was hosted by Severn Valley at the demanding Brookthorpe track, which provided some very spectacular racing.

The programme started with the AMX with the 2 Bridgerstone riders finishing 1st and 2nd overall. Rob Yates on his Yamaha worked hard to gain a superb maximum from his Honda mounted team mate Jack Timms, who was usually first out of the gate but determined riding from Yates saw him take a closely fought top spot with Timms consistently 2nd. Lee Truman and Dan Wheeler were close all weekend in 3rd and 4th, with Andy Fitzgerald back after injury getting the better of Darren Webster to complete the top 6.

AMX OPEN was dominated by Elliott Barrs who took maximum points from Jonathan Roderick Evans always mixing it up front with 4 2nd positions. Jordan Barrs and Shaun Buchan battled all weekend with last race decider with Jordan taking 3rd just 2 points in front of Shaun, 5th place Tim Truman looked set to be on the podium starting quick in every race finishing with 3 top 3 positions but a disaster in the final moto blowing his chances. Aled Evans edging out Ryan Bawn by 1 point for 6th.

Senior were next to the line with Alex Walton working hard to get to the front had 3 wins and two seconds finishing well clear in 1st, Oliver Consterdine winning the final race to secure 2nd from Deon Thomas, his win in race 3 enough for a 1 point advantage over Brooklyn Evans in 4th, Nathan Bache riding consistently was 5th with Rory Jones 6th . Senior Open saw Harry Linton take an impressive maximum, last out of the gate in every race Jordan Riley made no mistakes to finish a clear 2nd with John Collins runner up in his last two outings was safe in 3rd despite crashing out in race 3, just 6 points separated the next 4 riders with Ieuan Harris taking 4th closely followed by Jack Biddle, Zac Watkins and Jordan Wright.

A full line up of Novices saw Tom Smith never lower than 3rd with a 1st race victory take the 1st position Joe Wilkins with 4 excellent results took 2nd, Ben Gardner completing the top 3. Dan Merrills, Nico Cook and Chris Power all having good results finishing 4th ,5th and 6th. Jack Phelps only riding day 1 took 2 superb wins as did George Pointing who took maximum points on Sunday.

Vets: Adam Williams took maximum points from Jordan Cruttenden with 5 3rd positions in 2nd just 2 points in front of Kevin Brotherton, his 2 second spots not enough. Mick Beard , Neil Trigg and Andrew Evans, 2nd overall after day 1 did not ride day 2 completed the top 6.

Dave Cooper with an opening 3rd finished his weekend in style with 4 race wins to come out on top, Lee Hartill with 4 2nd spots and a 3rd was runner up well clear of Colin Yeend.

 

Big Wheel 85 was probably the most competitive group with forty riders battling throughout the weekend. Dominic Lancett showed his class gaining a superb maximum but had to work hard to get to the front in some races but once in front looked very smooth with no mistakes. Aaron Colley with consistent riding finished a clear 2nd from Jaydn Murphy riding on the limit, picking himself off the floor a few times to take 3rd. Dean Palmer finished a good 4th from front runner Owen Woodhouse with 2 superb runner up positions in the 2 openers, crashing out and recovering to a good 5th in the next, still looked a podium contender, but a disaster in the last heat crashing at high speed remounted to gain enough points for 5th. 6th place went to Sam Beresford after a disastrous race 1 he recovered well with me strong 3rd positions, for 6th position, one point in front of Billy Jones, Callum Beeken was always going to be in the mix leading the opener but a heavy crash in race 2 ended his aspirations.

Small Wheel 85 ace James Smith took maximum points, quick out of the gate and rarely challenged. Billy Duke up from the juniors had 2 superb runner up spots especially race 5 which decided the overall position, with Toby Potter equal on points in 3rd. Ben Watkins came home 4th with consistent riding but he nearly gave it away in the final race to Aaron Patstone who stepped up his pace on day 2 with 2 third positions with Callum Baldwin taking 6th.

 

Another maximum went to junior pilot Charlie Palmer with Bridgestone Sponsored Morgan Evans always in close contention 2nd just 2 points in front of Brad Timmis, who was never out of top 3, Tomas Wright, Lewis Roden and Jak Taylor all having good races, finishing in 4th,5th and 6th respectively.

 

McKenzie Marshall stamped his authority on the autos with 4 superb wins but a blip in race 4 nearly cost him the overall. He recovered well to take the final race and 1st overall by just 2 points from Ellis Poole. The last race was so competitive with Poole closing down Marshall on the last lap. A frantic pass by Poole as he dived down the finishing hill put him the wrong side of the track and he bailed out giving the race and overall to Marshall. Ben Mustoe with a super series results never lower than 3rd finished just 2 points adrift to take the final podium position. Luka Aston was 4th one point in front Preston Lewis, with Dylan Meaney, just one point adrift in 6th, everything depended on the final race.

 

Many thanks to our main sponsor Bridgestone and Severn Valley Committee and especially the first and cover second to none, resulting in a very enjoyable weekend.
