NORTH East racers returned to action this past weekend as the NEMCRC headed north of the border for their second round of the season.
And with just the October finale left to run, it was a frantic chase for points.
Daniel Good bolstered his advantage in the Stocktwin championship chase after dominating the opening scrap ahead of Adam Clarke and Alan Ellis. And despite Clarke pinching Sunday’s second win from Ellis, Good was back on top with another comfortable win in race three as he lifted the Michael Moore trophy.
Reigning Scottish Lightweight champ Scott Campbell returned to action with four wins on the trot across the Supertwin and Mini Thunderbike ranks, only finishing second once to fellow twin man Ian Gardner, who took the final two race wins.
Defending Pre Injection Open title holder David Suddes nearly swept the class after beating Richard Lambourne and Alan Armstrong in the opening races, but Armstrong powered to the race three spoils with nearly seven seconds to spare.
In the Pre Injection 600 races, Armstrong powered to all three wins and was only ever troubled by James Crawford, who he passed late in the final race to beat by just under a second, while Paul Rogers and Richard Gilderoy shared the podium spoils.
After not qualifying on Saturday, reigning National CB500 champ Jodie Chalk rocketed from the back of the grid to beat Aran Sadler in the first two 500 Twins races by no more than 0.169sec. But Sadler got the better of Chalk by nearly five seconds in race three to prevent her clean sweep, as Colin Mooney banked three thirds.
Formula 600 Sidecar duo Simon Robinson and Rob Child cleaned up in the outfit battles with three wins from three, leaving Open class runners Jim Hamilton and Mick Fairhurst trailing in their wake before Murray McKay and William Szanel snagged second in race three.
Steve Mason cleaned up in the 350 Classic category, while Mark Herbertson and David Martin shared the 500 spoils. But it was a three-way split in the Post Classic Juniors as David Cook, Bob Farrington and John Hold all took one apiece.
In the fight for BSSO honours, Justin Price swept the Production class ahead of Graham Tatton and Thomas Shaw. And while Price looked on for even more after beating Jason Metivier to the opening Group 6 win, Warren Wilkinson scorched to the final two wins by an average of 20 seconds.
