REPORT JULY 10 ELVETHAM
A small entry probably due to early morning rain. Missed ideal conditions for racing.
Greg Kingston took the 250 two stroke twenty minute championship race from Steve Elford flying despite nursing an injury.Shaun Wright was third in the high speed train.
Leon Bernardelli was the 125 superstar, even Paul Williams couldn’t stay with him.Robert Hussel had to watch the front two from a safe distance in third.
Gary Jeffrey took another win in the 500 twostroke classSteve Ruffell took runner up, but they both will have to watch out as Steve Titcombe recovers his speed in the coming rounds.
Riley Lowe took the Pre 15s scratch race from Paul Williams and Joe Addison.He came from the back to win the machine age handicap as well. This time from Joe Addison and James King. With machines having mortality problems, Joe Addison took the ability handicap from Steve Hawkwood and James King.
Strangely the Pre 05s had more entries than the Pre 15s.Steve Titcombe came out of a short retirement to take the Scratch race from Robert Hussey and the thundering Old Husky 4stroke of Paul Johnson. Robert Hussey hustled his old machine to the lead of the machine age handicap and even Steve Titcombe nor Bryan Smith could depose hi. Amanda Schmidt sent her little 85 to the head of the field in the ability handicap, but one lap was all her glory lasted. Before Anthony Barrett nipped by for a lap as top dog. Bryan Smith then smoothed by to take the win as Chris West and Steve Titcombe closed in.
Harry Hinson was this week’s A group superstar scorching to a hat trick of wins.Greg Kingston chased him hard in the first leg. Then gave up for the day.Jason Connor having finished third first time out,took second in the middle leg and then retired, leaving Steve Elford who finished third this time to show the young upstarts what stamina is, by taking runner-up in the last leg and overall, ahead of Shaun Wright.
