Round one of the Dave Barkshire sponsored two-man team enduro saw over 120 riders heading to the Suffolk coast at the remote village of Iken on Sunday. Course specialist, Wilf Harvey and his team had laid out a three-mile lap which consisted of woodland and some fast field areas, and despite rain earlier on, the course was perfect.

Each rider had a thirty-minute session to put in as many laps as they could, before handing over to their team mate. After each rider competed two sessions in the morning, the course was reversed for the afternoon sessions, where the action was intense among the leading teams.

2018 Eastern champion, Luke Parker, was drafted in to join his Norfolk team mate Ben Cole, after Cole's original partner, Harvey Thomas withdrew, following an injury at Thetford the previous week. The pair led after the morning sessions, with eleven laps each completed, and Lowestoft's Lewis Bond and his team mate, Tim Rose held second place with twenty-one laps under their belt.

Parker and Cole made sure of victory in the afternoon, with another twenty-two laps reeled off, with Parker, celebrating the birth of his new son, completing twelve laps to Cole's ten. Bond and Rose held onto their second place, with Ross Taylor/Craig Roper finishing third after a closely fought three-way battle. It was obvious that the motocross riders were prominent on the fast-open field areas, and apart from some great riding from the winners, Eastern motocross champion, Shaun Southgate, and Norfolk ace, Declan Whittle, also completed twelve laps each as the course roughened up later in the day. Whittle actually put in the fastest lap of the day in an amazing time of five minutes, ten seconds.

Tommy Clark/Dan Smith did forty laps to win the experts group, one lap clear of Jack Austin and Joe Eaton, and Carl Walker with his riding partner, trials supremo, Julian Harvey, claimed third on the day.

In the popular Clubmans class, victory went to Ben Roper/Kieran Hibble, who amassed thirty-seven laps between them. Martin and David Stevens also completed the same number of laps, with time penalties deciding the final result. Michael Baker/Ray Otaka were the third best clubman team, just ahead of local brothers, David and Andrew Woods.

Big thanks to the landowner, timing team, and all who helped to clear up at the end of a great day.

Woodbridge & DMCC has won the coveted Maxxis ACU British Motocross Championship Organiser of the Year award for the third consecutive time. The Suffolk club staged the third round of this year’s series at its fantastic Blaxhall circuit, running classes for the MX1, MX2, MXY2 and British Two-stroke championships as part of a packed programme that featured nine points-paying races.


“As a club it is a great honour to have been given this award for the third time running,” said Woodbridge Press Officer Richard Blyth. “Over the off-season we’ve spent a number of weeks redesigning the track layout to give a fresh feel to the venue for the riders and teams.”


“The news that we have become the first organiser to claim the award three times is a real proud moment for all at the club and our valued local sponsors. Over the last four seasons we feel we have continued to improve the venue and will continue to enhance people’s experience at the event in 2019 and beyond.”


Series Manager Stuart Drummond paid tribute to all the organisers involved with this year’s championship. “Competition for this award is always very fierce so well done to Woodbridge for making it a hat-trick of wins,” he said. “Every year the bar is raised and all the event organisers – some of whom were forced to deal with extremely adverse weather conditions this season – put in a huge effort.”


The club will receive its award at the annual ACU presentation evening at the National Motorcycle Museum on January 26.

Sunday saw the Woodbridge DMCC host the final round of the Bickers Lifting ACU Eastern Motocross Championship, which was supported by PP Sports at the fantastically prepared Blaxhall Circuit near Woodbridge. With over 150 riders competing there was plenty of action across all the classes.


The day begun with the practice and qualifying session to sort the riders into groups for the races later in the day. In the Expert class unfortunately, series leader Jake Nicholls suffered an injury in the qualifying session after setting the fastest time and withdrew from the rest of the meeting.


After lunch it was time for the races and in the Expert class there was a number of British Championship riders competing, along with the top local Experts. When the gate dropped it was Liam Knight that made the start and pushed hard at the front early on in the moto. Behind him Lewis Tombs worked his way for outside the top six to take second ahead of the Ashton Dickinson in third. Fourth and fifth places went to Jake Shipton and Luke Benstead.


The second race would once again see Knight make the start and this time it was Dickinson who was pushing hard behind in second and Tombs in third. The trio battled hard all race long and crossed the line less than 2 seconds apart in that order. Fourth place went to Josh Gilbert who recovered well from a crash in the opening race and Shaun Southgate crossed the line fifth to move ahead of Nicholls in the Championship by a point.


The final Expert race of the day saw Tom Grimshaw take the holeshot ahead of Knight who quickly moved into the lead ahead of Tombs and Dickinson. As the race went on Knight settled into a nice rhythm and took the win to make it three out of three. Dickinson managed to get past Tombs as did Gilbert, who try to make a last corner pass for second over Dickinson but went down and finished third with Tombs in fourth with Benstead fifth. Southgate rode a steady race after starting just inside the top 20 to bring it home in 11th place to secure the 2018 Bickers Lifting ACU Eastern Expert Motocross Championship.


In the Junior Championship Ryan Watts had already claimed the 2018 Bickers Lifting ACU Eastern Junior Motocross Championship at the previous round and was still looking to take more race wins. In the opening race it was Ben Alexander who took the holeshot, but Watts worked his way into the lead and took the win over Perry Galloway and Bill Moynes in third. Fourth place went to Connor Baldry and Ben Alexander took fifth.


The second race saw Alexander take another holeshot before losing the lead to Watts on the second lap. But at the mid race it was Moynes that took over the lead and claimed the win from Watts and Galloway in third. Fourth place went to Alexander with Ashly Campbell in fifth place.


The third and final race of the day and season for the Junior Championship saw Alexander make it a trio of holeshots on the day. Once again it was Watts who worked his way into the lead to claim the win and overall from Moynes and Galloway in third. Fourth went to Baldry and Campbell took fifth.


Also competing on the day were the two Junior Support groups. In the Support Group A it was Darren Gooch who took the overall win with two race wins and a second. Luke Hylton took second overall and Scott Claydon claimed third. Fourth and fifth went to Joshua Deadman and Gareth Cushion.


The Support Group B saw Charlie Dormer take the overall from Bradley Parradine in second and Andrew Cattermole in third. Fourth and fifth places overall went to Ryan Bailey and Tony Rooke.


Sunday’s event marked to the end to another successful season for the Woodbridge DMCC Club at their Blaxhall venue.
