JOHN Reynolds, Dan Harris and Matt Wetherell shared the MRO Minitwin spoils at Cadwell as the battle raged in one of Bemsee’s tightest classes.
Just two points separated the top three in the MRO Minitwin championship standings after the first round at Brands some five months ago and title favourites are anything but clear after a trio of winners left Lincolnshire.
Reynolds, who arrived holding fifth in the championship, launched himself into title contention with a brace of wins on Saturday, before pole-sitter Harris and fellow title rival Wetherell grabbed a race win apiece on Sunday.
Reynolds was victorious in race one by a tenth of a second, beating Jake Povah to the flag, with series leader Wetherell third. And Reynolds again beat Povah for the win in race two, this time with Cameron Harris third and Wetherell fourth.
Craig Henstock took the day’s rookie wins in 11th and 13th among a field of more than 35 bikes.
Cut to race three and it was disaster for Reynolds who, a lap after setting the fastest time, crashed out and ended his hopes of three on the trot.
Dan Harris then grabbed the lead rode away to win by nearly five seconds, as three riders tripped over each other in the battle for the remaining two podium positions. In the end, it was the North East club’s reigning Stocktwin champ Daniel Good who claimed the runner-up spot ahead of Wetherell.
Wetherell finally broke the duck and tasted victory in race four, his first of the season after a trio of runner-up finishes at round one, as he was joined on the rostrum by Dan Harris and Keith Povah.
In the Rookie battle, Henstock and Alex Mann took a win apiece, with Mann ninth in race three and Henstock 12th in race four.
