For the first time since September 2019, the Woodbridge and DMCC will warmly welcome spectators back to the Blaxhall Circuit near Woodbridge for the Third Round of the Instanda / Stebbings ACU Eastern Motocross Championship.


The event will feature 200 riders competing in a 15-race programme that will see the ‘Fastest Forty riders contesting the Premier Class races with the points scored separately for both Expert and Junior grade riders. Alongside the Premier Class will be four support groups of riders providing plenty of close racing throughout the day.


Former National grade rider, Lewis Tombs, should start as the favourite having won 5 of the 6 Championship races so far this season but will have stiff opposition from Woodbridge club rider, Luke Benstead, and the Norfolk-based trio of Luke Parker, Declan Whittle, and Ben Cole. Top riders on the MX2 machine include Reece Martin, Josh Peters and Suffolk youngster, William Farrow.


Mixing it with the above Experts is Junior grade championship leader, Ryan Gardiner, and teenagers, Callum Murfitt, Archie Fisher and Bayliss Utting, who will all be trying to obtain grading points to upgrade to Expert status.


Essex based Ryan Gardiner is 15 points ahead of veteran Matt French in the Junior grade standings, with sixteen-year-old Callum Murfitt currently laying in third place.


Following the recent Government relaxation of the Covid restrictions, the Woodbridge club has been working on methods to reduce the requirement for cash payments when attending as a Spectator at Blaxhall. They have therefore invested in credit card readers allowing for Contactless payments to be taken up to the value of £45.


As a club, we will be encouraging Spectators to pay by Credit or Debit cards but, will still be allowing cash payments and ask all Spectators to arrive with the correct admission fee available at the venue.


All the action starts at 9:30 am with the first block of racing start straight after Practice. Admission prices are £10 for Adults and £5 for Unaccompanied Children with the Blaxhall Circuit being located using the postcode IP17 1LG.

Sunday saw the Woodbridge DMCC club host their first race meeting of the year at the Blaxhall Circuit. With Covid restriction still in place the event was held without spectators at the venue, but a strong line of 160 riders enjoyed a great day’s racing.

The meeting featured the opening round of the NGR Championship for over 30’s along with 3 groups of Expert and Junior riders in a 12-race programme.

In the NGR Championship group it was Matt Pope on the Matt Pope Motorcycles Kawasaki who took the opening race win after moving forward to pass early race lead Will Kerry for the win, while Tim Clark took third ahead of Leon Woodford in fourth and Mark Hunt in fifth.

The second race once again saw Pope take the race win by over 20 seconds ahead of John Hinz and Will Kerry in third, with Sean Wright and Tim Clark taking fourth and fifth. Pope made it three out of three to claim the overall in the final race taking the win ahead of John Hinz, Tim Clark, Sean Wright and Will Kerry. Pope ended the day with the overall victory ahead of Will Kerry and Tim Clark.

In the A Group a number of the Expert rider topped the entry list along with the fastest Junior riders on the day. It was the former two times British Champion Elliott Banks-Browne who was the fastest in qualifying and competing in his first race for over 15 months. The opening race saw Banks-Browne in a race long battle with Luke Benstead, with Banks-Browne taking the victory over Benstead, Lewis Tombs in third and Tom Grimshaw and Luke Parker taking fourth and fifth. The top Junior in the race was young Bayliss Utting in 14th as he competed in his first adult event.

The second race saw drama on the start when Banks-Browne stalled the bike going into the second turn and had to restart from almost dead last. At the front Tombs was in the lead and battling to stay ahead of the chasing pack, while Banks-Browne was moving forward at a very quick pace. Towards the end of the race Banks-Browne had moved into second and took the lead with a lap to go and claimed the win ahead of Tombs, Sam Nunn in third and Tom Grimshaw and Luke Parker in fourth and fifth. Once again it was Bayliss Utting as the top Junior in the race in 13th place.

The final A group race saw Banks-Browne make good start and take a start to finish race win to claim a hat trick of race wins and the overall. Second in the race went to Luke Benstead ahead of Lewis Tombs, Sam Nunn and Luke Parker rounding out the top 5. Bayliss Utting finished the race again in 13th as the top Junior.

The A Group overall saw Banks-Browne take the win ahead of Tombs, Nunn, Parker and Benstead making the top 5 overall.

In the B group it was Jack Whitlam who took the overall victory ahead of Thomas Clarke and Ross Young in third. Richard Roper claimed fourth overall after taking two race wins but a DNF in the second race dropped him down the overall with Marcus Smith in fifth overall.

The C Group saw Lee Scott take the overall win ahead of Sam Cushion, Jonathan Finch rounding out the top 3 with Josh Sturman and Robert Green rounding out the top five overall.

After a successful day the Woodbridge DMCC will now prepare for their next meeting on the 30th May where they hope that the Government and ACU guidelines will allow the return of Spectators to the event.
