AMCA Sidecar Championship at Upavon, 24th April,2016 Race Report

Following the cancellation of a proposed ACU Clubman event, several crews desperate for race action decided to travel to Upavon in Wiltshire instead, taking out a day licence to compete in round three of the 2016 AMCA Sidecar Championship. This late, welcome entry influx meant that there was now a superb total of 29 chariots on the Upavon start-line, in the process thus contributing to play their part in what was to be three very entertaining clashes. Taking the overall win on the day and extending their AMCA series lead was the pairing of Jack Etheridge/Scott Grahame, joined in the top three by George Kinge/Zac Snell and Paul Pelling/Chris Pannell.

So, after Dan Foden/Josh Haynes had posted the fastest qualifying time we were ready to go racing! Then proving that they were indeed right on the pace, Foden gated quickly in moto one, tucking in behind leaders Pelling/Pannell whilst Etheridge/Grahame, Kinge/Snell, Mike Hodges/Liam Hodges and Dan Lawry/Bod Bishop completed the top six. Three laps in and Foden went missing allowing a hard charging Etheridge to move up into 2nd. Lap by lap, he then reeled in leader Pelling whilst there was an almighty old scrap going on for 3rd as Kinge, Hodges and Lawry locked horns, circulating the chalky circuit at high speed and never more than a few yards apart, great action! Right through the pack plenty of battles were raging but the crew right on a mission and certainly now focussing the spectators attention was David Keane/Paul Horton! Storming  up the leaderboard from an early 11th they even passed Lawry for 5th. Eight laps in though the contest was to be red flagged so with the result standing, victory belonged to Pelling, narrowly ahead of Etheridge, Kinge, Hodges, Keane, Ross Bowers/Dan Phelps and Lawry.

Looking for revenge, Etheridge made a supersonic start in moto two and thus lead the charge from Pelling, Foden, Bowers, Tony Green/Si Buckley and Rob Oldfield/Faye Barnes. As Pelling then made inroads on leader Etheridge’s early advantage, such was the terrific pace of the front two that they were by mid-distance already encountering some back-marker traffic! Indeed those tail-end crews were to be pivotal in the eventual decision of the contest! On lap ten and on entry to a sweeping left hand turn, the leading duo faced three backmarkers. As Etheridge dived for the inside line, Pelling took the outside sweep and managed to find the necessary gap to then squeeze his outfit to the front. From here onwards it was Pelling all the way as a frustrated Etheridge had to settle for 2nd spot again with Bowers 3rd, Hodges 4th, Kinge 5th and Oldfield 6th right in the mix. Moto two also certainly proved adventurous for Keane as he gated in 14th. Moving right up to 4th, he then got a little out of shape, ejecting passenger Paul Horton from the chair, the shift in weight balance sending the outfit off the circuit! Returning to pick his partner up, Keane quickly regained his composure to then get home in a 9th place finish.

Etheridge was again fastest away in the final Upavon contest with Pelling in 2nd spot and looking for that hat-trick of moto wins. Four laps in though and Pelling was out of contention after the cut-out switch on his outfit came apart. Taking full advantage, the super Etheridge then gradually stretched his lead but behind him it was all going on as the determined pairings of Kinge, Lawry, Keane, Hodges and Oldfield gave chase. By lap seven, Keane was up into 2nd with Hodges a strong 3rd. For the Hodges crew though that joy was to be shortlived as a bolt worked loose on their  handlebar clamp thus forcing the youngsters out. So at the chequered flag, it was victory to Etheridge, over 12 seconds clear of Keane as Kinge took 3rd, Oldfield 4th, Danny Gray/Lewis Gray 5th and Johnnie Waters/Ian Shepperd 6th.

In the Upavon solo action, Josh Broadway on his rapid 250F Yamaha scored a very impressive maximum points victory in the Unlimited Experts class ahead of his brother Jordan. Winner Josh built the foundations for his eventual success by producing a stunning opening race performance when moving up the leaderboard from an early last place! Bradley Kelly won the opening two Seniors Unlimited clashes before suffering a last moto DNF. That opened the door for Ian Bryne who not only took the race win but also the overall verdict just one point ahead of John Pearce.

In Juniors Unlimited Group One it was another big result for Yamaha and 250F power as 16 year-old Phillip Peaster scorched to a great maximum points victory chased home on each occasion by Lewis Cunningham. In Juniors Group Two, Harry Fox won the opening moto but had to settle for a final 4th overall as Sam Goddard topped the standings ahead of Archie Benham and Scott Mortimer. In the final group of solo support action for Inter-Juniors, Darren Roberts(twice) and Callum Hurst took the race wins and the top two places in the overall positions as the top three was completed by Jamie Siviter.

Dursley MXC at Nympsfield, April 17th, 2016 Race Report

With excitement levels rapidly rising and the start of the 2016 AMCA British Motocross Championship powered by Datatag and supported by Dunlop now just two weeks away, there was first the small business of sorting the Area Qualifiers to conclude. In the South, Dursley MXC were the hosts at the superb Nympsfield circuit and on the evidence of Sunday’s event, the riders about to join the series will certainly give spectators a massive treat! In the MX1 Qualifier, the top three of Shane Carless, John May and James Dodd produced a trio of exciting tussles with motocross racing right out of the top draw. Indeed these lads certainly have an abundance of pedigree and ability and it will be a major surprise if come the end of 2016 they are all not right in the shake-up for honours! Over in the MX2 Qualifier, Luke Blanchard was also in great form, taking the overall win ahead of Ben Hunt and Josh Broadway.

Thanks to their usual expert track preparation and some very kind weather, the Nympsfield circuit was in prime condition for the all-important Qualifying action. So it was time for the riders to discover if their Championship dreams would be realised or shattered at the first hurdle! In MX1 moto one it was John May who led the charge from Shane Carless, Curtis Blamey, James Dodd and Jordan Broadway. Three laps in and Carless soared to the front and there he remained to take the opening win of the day as Dodd moved stylishly up to bag 2nd with May in 3rd and Blamey 4th. Moto two then followed an almost identical pattern as the fast starting May again led the charge before being overhauled by both winner Carless and Dodd whilst the equally impressive Curtis Blamey was the closest challenger to the dominant top three. The best though was certainly saved until last as May, Dodd and Carless circulated the Nympsfield circuit at high speed with the proverbial blanket able to cover them for large periods of this final battle. This time victory belonged to May from Carless, Dodd, Blamey, Broadway and Ryan Allen, a classic race which sent the spectators home happy!

In the MX2 Qualifier, both Josh Broadway and Jack Timms took turns to lead moto one with victory going to Broadway. After initially finding himself down in 6th, Luke Blanchard moved through to move back up to thus bag a hard earned 2nd spot, thus pushing young Timms back to 3rd, the top six being completed by Ben Hunt, Joseph Barry and Mitchell Benjamin. In the remaining two qualifying scraps, Blanchard galloped to victory with Hunt right on the gas and chasing him home. Also producing very composed and calculated rides to help ensure their places on the start grid for the AMCA MX2 British Championship were Broadway, Timms, Barry, Benjamin, Ricky Fenton, Jordan Hughes and Adam Litchfield.

Not to be outdone, there was also some very spectacular action in the support classes at Nympsfield. Topping the bill in the MX1 Experts was the defending AMCA Champion Luke Dean. Luke though did not quite have it all his own way and had to settle for 4th in moto one as Clinton Barrs took the win from Mark Young and Brad Turner. Showing just why he is the current number one, Luke then responded by blasting to victory in the remaining two moto’s to thus top the podium from the fast and impressive duo of Young and Turner. MX2 Experts was all about a serious head to head between top AMCA Championship contenders Paul Neale and Josh Waterman. After three frantic clashes, the end result was to be 2-1 moto win count in favour of Neale and with it the overall victory from Waterman, fast starting Brandon Benjamin, Ryan Jones, Martin Jones and young Tyron Cleaver.

Overall winner James Baker, runner-up Ross Jones and Kyle Jones all recorded a moto victory apiece in Seniors MX1. Kyle Jones though was denied an eventual podium place after a first race DNF so it was to be Luke Murley who took home the 3rd place trophy. In MX2 Seniors, Thomas Watson built the foundation for his overall success by being first past the chequered flag in the opening two clashes. Although Dan Best then won the last moto, the MX2 Seniors podium was to be completed by Jamie Comley on the 125cc LDR Kawasaki and Charlie Cox.

 The very impressive Joe Rowe went through the card on his way to MX1 Juniors overall victory ahead of Ashley Tipping and Kevin Park. Not to be outdone, MX2 Juniors also produced a maximum points winner in Thomas Graves. Whilst Thomas deservedly took home the first place trophy, it was Lee Palmer and Harvey Clarke who completed the podium.
