REPORT MAY 8 NORTHCHAPEL
Thanks to James King watering a well prepared Northchapel circuit, both night and morning, with some help from an overcast day. The SMX faithful had a super days racing.
Paul Williams led the 125twostroke championship twenty minute race away and not even David Bailey could get near him.Antony Barrett was close behind in third.
Connor Disano was likewise dominant in the 250 twosroke class although Joe Maguire and |Joe Addison in second and third places didnít give him any time to relax.
The sparsely supported 500 twostroke class went to Mark Jordan who rushed his old 400 Susuki to an easy win from Gary Jeffrey and Mel Leveret.
The Pre 05s should be well supported given that any machine made between 1995 and 2004 is eligible.However only two put in an appearance. Steve Perry won all three races from Amanda Schmidt.
The Pre 15s not surprisingly were better supported, with Gary Archer leading James King and Joe Adddison over the finishing line in the scratch race. Joe Addison got the start in the machine age handicap and was never headed. James King was second until mid race when Gary Archer took over. Charlotte Williams was the first to show in the ability handicap,Luke Love took over after two laps.He also hung onto pole for two laps before Gary Archer steamed through for the win. Soon followed by Joe Addison.
Lee Hopcroft seems to be on a hot streak at the moment he took all three A group races.Behind him Ricky Carter took second in the first and third legs, but could only manage fifth in the second. While Connor Disano took second in the middle leg alongside to thirds to grab second overall by a point from Ricky
