The Wirral Hundred club’s third race meeting of the year on 24th
June will use the 1.55 mile Anglesey Coastal circuit on the Saturday and the 2.1 mile International circuit on the Sunday, making it a weekend with a difference.
This is the fourth year that the club has configured a race weekend in this manner, and the popularity of the previous three, coupled with the mid-summer date, should hopefully ensure a bumper entry.
Jamie Devine has established a useful lead in the club’s Paul Bland Motorsport
Formula 600 championship, but nevertheless can be caught at this meeting by any or all of the chasing pack of Matthew Waldon, Adrian Kershaw and Chris Eden. In the Powerbikes class Johnny Blackshaw is a clear favourite but in the new Pre-2009 Pre-Electronics Powerbikes division Chris Ganderton, John Jackson and John Robb are all in contention for the top spot. Joe Ravenscroft, Mike Bampton and Ray Stevenson have had impressive starts to the season in the Pre-Injection, 650 Twins and SSR-Suspension
Golden Era Supersport classes respectively, whilst the experienced Adrian Kershaw and John Price remain the men to beat in the 100-500cc Allcomers and Forgotten Era classes. Rob Owen currently heads the Classic Bike standings whilst John Shipley & John Saidi are top amongst the sidecars. Riders are reminded that there will be a triple-dose of Senior and Lightweight Open races, with the running of the races postponed in March due to an oil spill.
The Earlystocks Racing Club is again guesting with the club and all eyes will be on the winners at Oulton Park in April, Nick Allison and Dave Crampton.
