ARA: The rest of the action from Round 1

In ARA, News

MANX club racing action got off to a flying start this weekend as Andreas Racing Association riders hit Jurby and lap records went out the window.

And while many riders took home trophies at the club’s season-opening double-header, it was nothing but domination for reigning big bike champ Ryan Cringle.

The Douglas rider got his quest for a fourth straight 1300 Solo championship title off to a perfect start this weekend with three lights-to-flag wins over brother Jamie, scorching to a new lap record of 1:06.130 en route while Ryan Kneen took third each time out.

But Cringle wasn’t done there, and he went on to pick up another hat-trick of wins in the 600 Solo ranks with a new record to boot, a 1:07.323, beating reigning champ Jamie by no more than 1.25sec while Jason Corcoran and Matt Mylchreest shared podium spoils.

Dave Quine did the double in the Singles/Twins/Triples and clocked a new lap record of 1:12.444sec as he shared the spoils with Dave Moffitt, while Mark Colvin followed them home each time. In the Classic ranks, it was Darran Creer who beat Richard Bregazzi and Andy Cowie as Mally Oates scored a Post-Classic treble.

In the 650 scraps, Quine scooped another double win as Colvin took the final with a track record of 1:11.716. Alongside them on the grid were the 400 riders, among which Mason Johnson controlled the action.

Oates also bagged a Steel Frame victory, but it was steelie ace Dean Osborne who dominated the other two races and crossing the line at least 36sec clear of his closest competition.

The Clubman and Novice races were led all the way by Seb Spiers while Damien Crook, Dave Watling, Marcus Simpson and Gillin Chadwick shared the rostrum spoils.
