Adam Wells and Joshua Bentley ended the first day of the amateur MX1s equal on points as they had a win and second place each in round four of the Bridgestone British Masters staged at the famous Hawkstone Park circuit in Shropshire. As the riders started to turn up late on Friday evening the skies opened, and it rained for a couple of hours making the track on the first day of racing ideal. And in the MX1 class John Robson had two third places but will be looking to improve come day two of racing, writes Dick Law.
Henry Williams won both amateur MX2s but Rob Yates chased him over the finish line in both motos and is just four points behind in the chase for the overall as Corie Southwood and Kieran Cooke tied on points for third.
Greg Fisher was in control of the clubman class by winning both races from Dean Hakes and Peter Sargent.
Sam Nunn and Joel Rizzi shared the wins in the 125cc two-stroke races, but Nunn backed up his win with second place for the overall lead going in to day two, with Dominic Lancett close behind the leading pair.
There was no stopping George Simmutch in the MXY2 as he won both of the races from Denny Rapson and Rory Jones.
Despite a crash in race two that saw him drop down the running order, Ryan Mawhinney still managed to win both big wheel 85s from Buster Hart and Alfie Jones.
Ollie Colmer crashed in the first small wheel 85 but powered his way to the front of the pack but just missed the win but a couple of feet from race winner Arai Elcock. But Colmer’s race two win means he leads Elcock by four points when they line up for race three come Sunday morning.
Mckenzie Marshall won both of the junior 65s from Warren Clarke and Will Haddock.
