After a 5-year layoff Nora-Mx eventually managed to return to their most favourite track of all time! Thanks to circuit owner Brian Pounder from Banbury club the new Wroxton is now better still! Before racing commenced, track prep, layout and a Barrel load of sun was going to make for a good days racing!
Over 160 riders where keen to show off their new machines, gear and campers for 2019.
Lots of smiling faces before, during and hopefully on the way home too! A terrific start for the Nora Club in 2019.
There was equally as much excitement in all 6 groups and sub groups which made for some excellent racing thought out the 18 races on the day.
The pro class kept all spectators on their feet with a masterclass from the leading trio of McLernon, Callaway and Walker with two photo finishes.
On the line with attempts from the ‘NEVER give up’ Walker, But the day went to Callaway with a 1-1-3 and Runner Up spot went to Walker with a 2-2-3. The also featured terrific rides from Belgian Bruneel, in race 1, Irelands Dean Dillon, Day brothers and an ever-charging Oli Sansom ….
It was a bit of a Walker brothers affair with Alfie who’s about a foot taller than last year but still 14 yrs old took 1-1-1 and the only youth to clear the uphill triple. Alfie didn’t have it all his own way coming through the pack and being given an honest battle with super competitive Scot- Robbie Wood. Luke Berlin took the 3rd
spots in the group to round the open class off
The Masters saw Ed Davies continuing his dominance but not having it all his own way with holeshots this meeting, Steve Pinder from the KIK camp proved he can get out of the gate too. Irelands Johnny McKnight made it a true international affair keeping Ed on his toes all day!
Newcomers in the 50 and 100 classes saw a debut from mxgp stars Conrad’s sister Harriet Mewse, Finlay Bedding, and Morgan Humphreys in the 50 class. Reading’s Luca Shaw, the 3rd
generation of Shaw’s to progress through Nora-mx looked stunning in his kit (Just like Grandads who unfortunately didn’t have such a good day).
The Clubman class was full and equally proved a terrific class to watch, with no fewer than 7 ladies in the 19 line up, all competing for the ACU British Ladies Title
Full accurate results will be published shortly after some intermittent misses from the timing loop on the day. Keep an eye on Nora mx page- Results or My –Laps
