The tuning day on Saturday went off well with everyone getting many laps in and enjoying the weather conditions ,if only you had a crystal ball for what was going to happen on Sunday's race day with 70% chance of rain then the unfortunate leaking oil line that sprayed the track and caused a few problems later in the day with the rain .It took a few hours to mop up the track up .Racing got under way at 1350 hrs on a reduced 14 race program .
First up were the R1 Period 4 750, Period 3 350/Unlimited, Pre Modern the lights went out and after the 7 laps 9 of the 10 riders finished with Suzuki rider Dan Barson taking top spot on the podium ,coming in second was another Suzuki rider Glen Ottley , Suzuki rider Mark Ackermans collecting third place. In the second race of the Period 4 750, Period 3 350/Unlimited, Pre Modern the track conditions had changed dramatically due to the rain and oil causing it to become very greasy ,after the 5 laps it was again Suzuki rider Dan Barson coming in to take the flag with fellow Suzuki rider Mark Ackermans collecting second .
The Period 2 + Period 3 were the next group to form up on the grid ,when the flag dropped it was Triumph rider Eddie Preston who headed off out thru' turn 1 being pursued by Ducati rider Shaun Oliver jnr ,and Gary Tenardi on the Ariel but after the seven laps it was Eddie Preston that took the flag ahead of the other 7 riders ,coming in second was Shaun Oliver jnr on his 1962 Ducati, picking up the last spot on the podium was Gary Tenardi riding the Ariel .In their race 2 conditions had changed from a dry to a wet track, it was Ducatti rider Marco Vittino that took the lead from Triumph rider Eddie Preston and after the 3 lap dash it was Marco Vittino who claimed the top spot on the podium with Eddie Preston getting second.
Period 6 750 /Unlimited , Moderns + Thunderbikes were the next class to line up on the damp track ,the lights went out and it was Suzuki rider Joshua Matters ,Kawasaki rider Michael King ,Honda rider Colin Reynolds that headed the 15 rider pack when they went thru' T1 ,but after the 7 laps it was Suzuki rider Josh Matters that rode on to take the flag ,5 sec's further back was Michael King who collected second with Honda rider Colin Reynolds taking the last spot on the podium .In race 2 the riders went out on the wet track and it was Kawasaki proddie rider Michael King that rode off and went on to take the flag with 600 Yamaha rider Hayden Kirkby coming in to take second place ,picking up third was fellow proddie ride rider James Thompson .Jodie Brown riding the KTM stayed upright and came in a well deserved fourth place.
The Sidecars came out and 7 rigs lined up on a damp track ,when the lights went out it was the Suzuki power of the Mark Ackermans/Tristan Scalmer rig that took off down the track being pursued by the Suzuki powered Daryl McLeod machine + Alan Warner/Katie Mercer in their Kawasaki rig ,but after the 5 laps it Mark Ackermans/Tristan Scalmer coming in to claim the top spot on the podium ,with the Daryl McLeod rig getting second and Alan Warner with first time swinger Katie Mercer picking up third place. In race 2 the conditions were getting worse and only 4 rigs lined up, when the flag dropped it was again the Ackermans machine that headed out thru' T1 and just powered on to take the flag after the 5 laps, coming in a distant second was the McLeod machine with again the combo of Warner/K.Mercer taking the last spot on the podium.
Period 6 250/500 were the next class to come out on the wet track ,the flag dropped and it was Suzuki rider Richard Langdon ,Yamaha rider Scott Topping ,Honda rider Richard Beatty that took off thru' turn 1 and after the 7 laps it was the Suzuki of Richard Langdon that went on to take the top spot on the podium ,with Scott Topping riding the Yamaha to take second place ,picking up third was Honda rider Richard Beatty .In the second outing the field was changed to include the Period 4 250/500, Period 5 250/500 + GP 125 bikes as well ,after the flag dropped it was the Honda of Richard Beatty ,the Honda of Paul Smith and the Suzuki of Richard Langdon that took off down the track and after the 5 laps Richard Beatty came in first with Paul Smith picking up second and coming in third was Richard Langdon .
When the Period 4 250/500, Period 5 250/500 + GP 125 came out the track was starting to dry , the 7 riders of the mixed classes lined up on the grid ,when the lights went out it was the Honda of Paul Smith ,the Honda of Bobby Hull ,the Yamaha of Katie Mercer that headed off down the straight into T1 ,but at the end of the 7 laps it was Paul Smith that took the top spot on the podium with Bob Hull claiming second and Katie Mercer getting the remaining third spot on the podium .
