NO Limits racers enjoyed perfect weather this weekend as the NLR circus rolled into Wales for its fourth round on Anglesey’s Coastal Circuit.
And it wasn’t just the Endurance riders who soaked up the sunshine – picking up where he left off at Donington Park, Lee Wells took a Pirelli Super Series 600 clean sweep with three outright wins from four, only relinquishing one to NLR Club 600 class leader Scott Stevens.
LS Joinery man Wells stormed to the opening win less than half a second ahead of Andrew Fisher and Club 600 winner Ben Wotton, before doing the double with another win in race two, this time 1.297s ahead of JJR Triumph’s Wotton, with Ross Walker third.
East Midland Superbikes / Framefast Kawasaki rider Stevens then beat Wells to the flag by 0.736s in Sunday’s first race, but couldn’t take two and Wells was back out front as he led Walker home to complete his weekend hat-trick in the final race of the day as Wotton grabbed two more podiums and three Club class wins.
Broderick Whitmore-Wilson and Ewan Potter were in the mix for Super Series rostrum finishes, while Aran Sadler, Ryan Warrington and Lee Payne shared the remaining Cup podium honours.
Pre Injection 600 championship leader Ian Kirby split wins with Gethin Edwards, the Mackem taking two wins for the NA College squad on Saturday as Edwards swept Sunday.
After taking all four wins at the last round, NCS Trade Designs’ Adrian Allsopp looked to be on for another Racebuykz.com Cup 1000 clean sweep when he beat Jack Thompson and Lee Payne to the opening win.
But Thompson wasn’t having it, and the Jennings Race Products rider came out fighting the rest of the weekend to take the remaining three wins as Payne took two seconds to Dai Beynon’s one. KT Motorsport/Trackday Tyres’ Beynon, Allsopp and Stockdale’s Auto Repairs ace Andrew Stockdale took a third apiece.
William Holland bagged all four Twins victories on his Suzuki Supertwin, beating even the Ducati riders by more than 20 seconds.
Andy Claridge and premier-car.co.uk man Jake Major-Bird took two Ducati wins apiece, while Alsager Roofing’s Craig Cameron and Taylor Rose split the Standard Twin spoils as Chris Mitchell shared CB500 honours with Steve Sewell.
Rookie Ryan Cole cut Max Stainton’s Metzeler Newcomer 600 championship lead to just 12 points with three wins from four, while willowsworkshop.co.uk man Daniel Williams nabbed the other.
Fourth and fifth-place points men John Matthewson and Simon Cavill shared runner-up finishes with Stainton, while Williams, Matthewson and Mark Evans shared thirds.
Three different winners took to the top step of the Metzeler Newcomer 1000 podium as Rayner Clarke bagged two for CF Motorsport, while Ben Falla and series leader Tony Hunter grabbed one each.
Uncle Tom’s Motoring Centre man Hunter missed out on the first two wins by less than 0.7s, but snatched a precious 25 points in the final race of the weekend as he beat KLF developments/RAFMSA’s Falla and Christopher Fell to the chequered flag.
