EASTER REPORT ELVETHAM FOREST
Even Storm Katie (no relation to our lap scoring supremo Katie Williams) couldn’t damage the well prepared Elvetham Forest circuit. Bright sunny conditions meant the small entry thoroughly enjoyed excellent racing throughout.
Macey Berdysz took the Dave Kent scratch race from Shaun Brooker after a good scrap. Anthony Ford back from his winter layoff was third. Anthony Ford had the rare experience of being the oldest competitor in the age handicap, holding on to his lead for three laps, before Shaun Brooker surged by to win. Macey soon followed leaving Anthony in third again, behind Shaun and Macey. Anthony again led away the ability handicap, hanging on to the lead for five lapS, before Shaun and Macey nipped by on the penultimate lap. Macey shot by Shaun in the closing stages of the last lap for the race win and the overall.
Peter Archer was top dog in the Hambridge Homes Over 50s championship scratch race, ahead of Bryan Smith and Keith Mattingley.Peter Archer had the privilege of being the oldest and the fastest in the age handicap, so Keith Mattingley who started second never saw the going of him, but beat off Bryan Smith who had to pass Paul Copling and Gary Jeffreys to annex third. Gary Jeffreys was away first in the ability handicap holding pole until the fourth lap, when Keith Mattingley buzzed by to win, hounded by Bryan Smith and a fast closing Peter Archer.
Sole Over 60 was Brendan Kirby.
Scott Elderfield not surprisingly stormed to a hat trick of A group wins. Ricky Carter took second in the forest leg from Jack Scarlett. Jack whistled up to runner-up in the second leg ahead Connor Disano. Jack and Connor repeated the trick in the last leg behind Scott.
