Great days racing at Cadwell Park for British Motorcycle Racing Club

Thursday July 24, 2014 at 11:03am

Team Respro MRO 600s

James Puttrell closed in on Team Respro MRO 600 series leader Tommy Philp at Cadwell Park this weekend, as well as strengthening his grip on the 2014 Clubman Championship crown.

After winning the rookie championship in dominant fashion in 2013, Puttrell is running away with this year's Clubman championship, and is impressing in the overall championship too.

He rode to second place in the weekend's first race, holding off the challenge of Max Alexander. John Lea took the overall race win, with Puttrell the leading Clubman.

With Saturday's second race held over to Sunday morning, Puttrell mastered the tricky conditions to take the overall win. Lea rode to second place ahead of Alexander.

The weekend's remaining two races went the way of Tom Neave, doing the double over Lea. He also claimed both Clubman wins. Josh Wood took third in race three, before Thompson took third in the final encounter.

Puttrell's weekend hit a stumbling block in Sunday's second race, as he dropped from contention on the opening lap. However, he recovered in the final race to come through the field to claim fourth clubman and ninth overall, putting important points on the board ahead of Brands Hatch.

Morello Services MRO Powerbikes

Phil Crowe dominated the Morello Services MRO Powerbikes at Cadwell Park, taking all four wins on his BMW S100RR.

Peter Baker came second on every occasion, and came close to victory in race one, the gap at the line just one second. Colin Parker came third as a number of riders crashed out in tricky conditions, including Clubman championship leader Michael Honey.

With Saturday's second race held over to Sunday, Crowe took a hat-trick of victories, the first ahead of Baker Steve Murphy third.

Crowe’s remaining two wins came ahead of Baker with Barry Chapman third, as Roger Marsh took all available Clubman wins to close in on Honey in the championship standings.

DFDS Seaways Yamaha Past Masters

Pete Moore took his maiden win in the DFDS Seaways Yamaha Past Masters series, ending Graham Higlett's astonishing winning run, which saw him amass 15 consecutive race wins.

Higlett took victory in race one with a returning Andy Bown second, with Ben Miles in third.

With Saturday's second race delayed until Sunday morning, the grid formed on a drying track. As the flag dropped Moore stormed into the race lead, and as the chasing pack rounded Charlie's Two, the Manxman was already disappearing down the Park Straight.

It left Higlett and Bown to fight for second place, before a coming together at Mansfield on the last lap saw them both crash out. Miles took second ahead of Matt Barber.

Higlett returned to winning ways in the final two races, from Miles and Barber and then Moore and Miles.

James Sharpe took all four Clubman wins, while Michael Stanley took four Rookie class four victories and the Rookie of the day award on Saturday.

National Junior Cup and Senior 300s

Ryan Folkes took three overall wins and four class wins at Cadwell Park, the 100 points in the junior championship moving him past Joel Marklund.

Thomas Lodge took the overall win in race one and victory in the senior class, with Folkes second and Steve Jordan third and second senior.

Folkes then took three overall wins, all ahead of Lodge, who was the lead senior rider. Marklund and Harry Rowlings took a third each, and second Junior on each occasion, before Jordan took third and second senior in the final race.

MRO Minitwins

Grant Robertson saw his championship lead diminish at Cadwell Park, crashing out of the lead in the opening race after contact with another rider.

Paul Wilby took the win with five riders fighting for the remaining two podium spots. Mark Piper took second ahead of Jonathan Wright.

Wilby took the win in race two before Matthew Truelove did the double on Sunday. An eighth and three thirds kept Harry Truelove in the championship mix too.

Piper took a win in the Junior class before Harry Truelove took the other three, while Mason Williams took three wins in the Rookie class, the other going to Ben Body.

Three wins kept Mark Taylor favourite for this year's BMZRC championship crown.

Chris Rogers took the remaining win, with Taylor second, while Pete Woodall took a second and third over the course of the weekend. Reece Baldwin took two thirds, with Chris Dowling second in race two.

EDIasia Formula 400s

Steve Palmer took a brace of wins on Saturday, but with the former champion absent from proceedings on Sunday, the championship looks set to go to the wire.

Dan Ruth and Colin Martin made up the podium in race one, before Francesco Cavalli took second in race two ahead of Ruth.

Sunday's races went the way of Martin and Cavalli, with each playing second fiddle to the other too. Ruth took a brace of thirds.
