Cole Wins Second Round of ACU Eastern Centre Solo Enduro Championship at Foxborough Quarry
The second round of the Eastern Centre Solo Championship didn’t disappoint, with bright sunny skies and a brisk drying wind the ground was perfect for the beginning of the season considering recent rainfall. With the two notorious bogs as more difficult yet shorter options for the riders, as always it sorted the 81 competitors out and was the most influential and entertaining part of the course changing many places and championship points for those taking the wrong line and paying the price. Mechanical issues shook up final placings and saw a few surprise results and sadly retirement over the two and half hours of racing for much of the field and longer three hours for the Expert and Championship entries. The top spots were keenly fought over for points with 2 races of the 5 race series completed.

It was the first adult race for 14 year old Eddie Belton who has dominated the youth section locally for the last few years and having gained experience riding The Welsh Youth Hare & Hound Series last year, opted to compete in Clubman Class adult races this year where possible. He finished with two laps in hand over the closest competitor in his class and recorded lap times that would have sat easily in the top few places of the expert class. Certainly, one to keep an eye for the future.

With the Sudbury MCC also hosting the next Eastern Centre solo round taking place at Much Hadham Hertfordshire in June it gives competitors some time to get 2-man rounds under their belts as the series changes seasons.
