Sunday saw the Woodbridge & DMCC play hosts to nearly 200 riders at Blaxhall for their third motocross event of the season in blistering heat. The meeting featured a line-up of Expert and Junior Allcomers, a round of the NGR Championship and a youth 85cc group.

After weeks of hot weather and the continuing heat wave that the country is currently experiencing, the club spent all week watering and prepping the circuit in the lead up to Sunday morning.

After the morning qualifying had sorted the riders into group for the races later in the day it was the 85cc out on track first. When the gate dropped 35 of the regions 85cc youth riders on a mix of Small and Big Wheel machines blasted around the first corner. The battle at the front saw National riders Wal Beaney, Harvey Cashmore and Thomas Harris all pushing for the race win. As the race went on Beaney, who claimed the 2017 British 65cc Championship pulled away from the chasing pair on his Small Wheel bike. Beaney took the win by nearly 10 seconds over Harvey Cashmore and Thomas Harris in second and third on their Big Wheels. Fourth and fifth went to Callum Murfitt (Big Wheel) and Bayliss Utting (Small Wheel)

The second 85cc race saw Wal Beaney make another good start and lead from the first corner until the flag. This time Beaney made a mistake over the back of the circuit and stalled the bike allowing Thomas Harris to close the gap in second to just 7 seconds at the finish. Harvey Cashmore finished close behind in third with Murfitt taking fourth and Alby Smith in fifth on his Big Wheel. The results saw Wal Beaney the winner of the overall class and the Small Wheel class, with Bayliss Utting second and Archie Cockerill in third overall in the Small Wheel class. In the Big Wheel Class Thomas Harris took the overall win ahead of Harvey Cashmore and Callum Murfitt.

In the Allcomers the riders were split into three groups, with 24 Experts featuring in the A Group. In the first race it was Shaun Southgate who got the start ahead of National rider Lewis Tombs in second and Declan Whttle in third. They battled hard during the opening half of the race with Southgate keeping the pressure on Tombs until the flag with less than 3 seconds between them, the battle for third saw Luke Benstead catch up to Whittle and made a pass for third leaving Whittle in fourth and Supercross specialist Jack Brunell in fifth. The leading Juniors in the race was National Youth 125 rider Sam Nunn in ninth place with Connor Baldry as the second Junior and Ben Alexander in third.

The second Allcomers A race saw Declan Whittle make the holeshot but the race was Red Flagged when Adam Day crashed on the opening lap. In the restart Tombs made the holeshot and rode to a second race win. He was closely followed home by Luke Benstead in second starting in 7th on the opening lap. Third place went to Southgate with Whittle in fourth and Brunell in fifth. Once again Sam Nunn was the top Junior in 8th with Ben Alexander and Baldry second and third in the Junior Class.

In the Allcomers B class in was Robert Baldry who took two race wins to claim the overall victory, Second place in both races went to Jordan Crunden for second overall. James Hardman took third overall with two fourth place finishes. Daniel Cole and Billy Middleton took fourth and fifth overall.

The Allcomers C group saw Thomas Pearmain take two wins for the overall ahead of Scott Goodson in second overall with two thirds and Shaun Tacey took third overall with a 6-2 scorecard.

In the NGR Championship it was guest rider in the class Jon Barfoot that took the race win in the opening race ahead of Liam Walker and Aaron Hopkins. The second race would see Hopkins take the win over Barfoot but it would be Barfoot who claimed the overall on the day over Hopkins and Walker.

Unfortunately despite all the hard work the meeting was to be cut short after two full blocks of racing on safety grounds due to the drying conditions and temperatures in excess of 30C.

Sunday saw a massive crowd of race fans descend on the Blaxhall Circuit near Woodbridge to witness the Maxxis ACU British Motocross Championship take place in glorious sunshine. Once again the circuit was immaculately prepared by the host club, Woodbridge DMCC.


Many of the race fans arrived hoping to see local riders Jake Nicholls and Elliott Banks-Browne take victory against a strong field of British and European riders in the MX1 class and the pair didn’t disappoint the crowd.


The morning practice and qualifying session set the tone for the day with Banks-Browne fourth fastest and Nicholls fifth fastest. With the long sweeping opening corner both riders were confident of good starts in the main races.


With the scorching temperatures at a high it was time for the opening MX1 race as the crowd packed the fence lines to see club member Nicholls rocket out of the gate on his Buildbase Honda and claim the Foxwood Trade holeshot award ahead of Geartec Husqvarna’s Banks-Browne in second. With the local pair at the head of the field the crowd went wide as they cheered on their favourite and the duo soon pulled a gap on the chasing pack.


As the race reached the mid race Banks-Browne came under pressure from GP rider Tommy Searle and slipped to third. Nicholls was still dominate at the front and even when Searle closed the gap, Nicholls responded and pulled away to take victory by 30 seconds with Searle in second and Bank-Browne chasing his back wheel over the line for third. Fourth place went to the reigning champion Graeme Irwin with Russian Evgeny Bobryshev in fifth place.


After the excitement of the opening race, everyone was hoping for a repeat from Nicholls in the second. When the gate dropped this time it was Banks-Browne who out dragged Nicholls on the run to the first corner and claimed the Foxwood Trade Holeshot award. With Nicholls in second and pushing Banks-Browne, the pair quickly pulled a large gap over the rest of the field. It wasn’t until the fourth lap when Nicholls took the lead and looked to pull away again.


This time it would be Bobryshev that moved ahead of Banks-Browne for second and put a challenge on Nicholls but it was to no avail as Nicholls regroup and claimed a double race win and overall victory. Bobryshev crossed the line in second with Banks-Browne in third, while Italian Ivo Monticelli took fourth and Estonian Erki Kahro in fifth.


The double race win gave Nicholls the overall victory in front of the home crowd and helped him to extend his championship lead to 19 points. Next to Nicholls on the podium was Banks-Browne in second overall and he now sits fourth in the championship and just 35 points behind Nicholls with 5 rounds remaining. Also making a trip to the podium was Club member and Blaxhall regular Luke Benstead who took the overall victory in the British Expert Championship.


In the other Championship classes it was Irishman Martin Barr who took the overall victory in the MX2 class with a 2-3 scorecard by virtue of the tie break with second overall’s Josh Gilbert and series leader Conrad Mewse took third overall. In the first race it was Liam Knight who took the race win and broke the winning streak of Mewse, who bounced back in the second race to took the win in dominate fashion after coming from behind after a bad start. Local rider Lewis Tombs suffered a tough day after a bad first race but took a fifth in the second for 12th overall.


The British 2 Stroke produced some great racing as James Dunn took a double race win over teammate and series leader Mike Kras who took two seconds with Ashley Wilde taking two thirds.


In the MXY2 it was Callum Green who took the overall victory and the second race win after Rossi Beard suffered a bad result in the second race and ruined his chances of what was almost a perfect day following race wins in the first and final races. Third overall was George Sim-Mutch.
