Sudbury MCC - GH Motorcycles Hare & Hound Centre Championship 2nd Round - 13th March 2022

Tuesday March 15, 2022 at 1:02pm
Sudbury MCC - GH Motorcycles Hare & Hound Centre Championship 2nd Round - 13th March 2022
Worries of a flooded course following heavy rain the previous week proved unwarranted as the track had dried to near perfect conditions for the second round of the GH Motorcycles solo championship. The first event of the year for Sudbury MCC didn’t disappoint and welcomed back hundreds of spectators to enjoy the two-and-a-half-hour event with 130 starters from the whole Eastern centre region.

The track was beautifully graded and laid out by the busy army of helpers and committee members who worked tirelessly following the havoc wreaked by storm Eunice and rode beautifully providing a mix of open farmland and natural woodland. The two bogs proved a deciding factor separating the riders dramatically with a much shorter harder option through the bog for the brave and fearless who weren’t frightened to tackle it flat out or a much longer drier twisty option for those playing safe. The first few laps saw riders getting to grips with slippery logs in the tight wooded section, with few places to overtake it was all about the technique of tackling the obstacles as quickly as possible till the field stretched out.

With each of the five classes setting off in rows of 40 at 30 second intervals the track was soon buzzing with bikes and back markers were being lapped by the championship and expert riders within the first lap. Fitness was key over the lengthy race though it proved too much for some so early in the season with 19 riders failing to finish out of the 130 starters.

A well-deserved Championship win for Luke Parker from Norwich Vikings on 23 Laps making it his first win in this current series, over Ben Clark on 22 laps with Jamie Roper in third place three minutes behind on the same Lap Score.

The Sudbury Club look forward to welcoming everyone back to Foxborough on the 8th May for the third round in this 6 race Eastern Region championship series.
