Round 1 - April 9
Dursley @ Minchinhampton

Finishing as runner-up in the 2016 Vets title race, Simon Lane must have been pleased with his flying start to the first clash of 2017. On the gas, Simon was quick away until James Russell decided to upset proceedings.

Round 1 - May 1
Cannock @ Lower Drayton

The AMCA Veterans Championship class also produced some classic action with Matt Gordon, Simon Lane and finally Terry House all taking turns to lead moto one. Indeed House timed his challenge to perfection by passing both of his rivals in the last lap.

In moto two Gordon was fastest away and in control for the opening couple of circuits before Lane found a way through. In the final three laps tough Yorkshireman Danny Blakeley on his trusty 250cc two-stroke Yamaha and Martin Atherton also passed Gordon as Gary Jones and Terry House completed the top six.

Round 2 - May 15
Dursley @ Nympsfield

After only managing to complete two moto’s during the opening round of the AMCA Veterans after breaking a finger, Terry House bounced back in superb style on Sunday by bagging a brilliant maximum points score. House though certainly had to work hard for his glory as Simon Lane led all three moto’s.

Round 3 - June 5
Dursley @ Frocester

It proved to be a very eventful day in the Veterans Championship at Frocester as Matt Gordon moved back to the top of the standings, taking the overall win ahead of Simon Lane. Typical of the action, Gordon and Lane hotly disputed the moto one lead before Terry House moved through from 5th to mix it up.

Round 4 - June 26
North @ Hawkstone Park

Just like his brother, Simon Lane was also to loose vital ground in the Championship race after a rear-wheel puncture restricted him to a 9th place finish in the Hawkstone Veterans contest. Flying high a looking very comfortable in the sand, series leader Matt Gordon took the fist race win with Terry House moving through from a very early 10th spot to take 2nd.

Round 5 - July 10
Teme Valley @ Boraston

Terry House led the early exchanges in the opening Vets race but was under constant pressure from Simon Lane. Indeed on lap five, Lane was to then briefly head the contest before House regained control to take the win.

Round 6 - August 7
Cheltenham @ Brookthorpe

With top Vets contender Terry House a non-starter due to injury, the Brookthorpe dash for glory developed into a two way tussle between current series leader Matt Gordon and defending Champion Simon Lane. Indeed displaying all of his local track knowledge, Lane was to then go onto blast to a perfect untroubled maximum points win, thus keeping his dream of a Veterans Championship hat-trick still very much alive!

Round 7 - September 11
Newport MXC @ Long Lane

The final AMCA Vets contest of 2016 was all about a two way battle for the title featuring Matt Gordon and defending Champion Simon Lane. Going into the event, Gordon led the way by 27 points and crucially he then further extended his advantage by blasting to victory in the opening race on Sunday.
