Before the start there was a minutes silence in memory of Sudbury member Gareth Young who suffered a cardiac arrest at the last Sudbury event.
Roper was soon completing his second lap having passed Sargeant who had fallen on her first lap.
These youngsters just do not give up they all battled through the hour session catching each other up exchanging positions fighting tooth and nail.
Promptly at 11am the four Classes were dispatched at 15 seconds intervals running to their machines to start two hours nonstop of mayhem, chaos and give entertainment to the 300 spectators.Dan Willis/Chris Wright completed 75 laps, while Paul Belton/Phil Roper and Paul Whitehead/Terry Allen finished on 72 laps.However when time penalties were deducted these three teams were equal on 71.67 laps so best lap times came into play.In the Clubman Class local rider James Barker took the early lead also jumping off the See Saw but he was overhauled by Stuart Bridges to take the win by 20 seconds so Barker was 2nd both on 6 laps.The next three riders finished on 5 laps with Will Packer taking 3rd, Alfie Coles 4th and Dan Hunt 5th.
