CHANGES OUT FRONT FOR NORA-MX PROS

Nora-MX Championship Round 6, 20th September 2020, Little Silver MX, Devon

The Nora-MX crew and competitors travelled to Little Silver in Devon for the sixth round of its increasingly-popular 2020 championship, the first time quads had raced at the old-school motocross circuit for many years.

The weather held fine throughout the weekend, the track was well-prepped and well-watered, the landowner was welcoming and, by all accounts, a good time was had by all.

Oli Sansom made the Pro Moto 2 his own (chased here by Jamie Morgan)

The nature of the tight and challenging track set the scene for some close and hard-fought tactical racing battles across the classes.

The Pros were on fire, and the different style of track made things interesting out front with three different race winners across the three motos. In the opening Pro race, Dafydd Davies and George Day held first and second spots for the first few laps. Championship leader Harry Walker worked his way up from third, taking first Day and then Davies for the win, setting the fastest time on lap seven in the process. Jamie Morgan finished fourth with Oli Sansom fifth and Carl Bunce in sixth.

Oli Sansom was on a mission in the second moto, taking a flag to flag win and never looking back. He made it his own with Jamie Morgan and George Day battling behind him in second and third, until the closing laps when Day nipped past Morgan for the win. Walker finished fourth from a mid-pack start, with Davydd Davies fith and Dean Dillon rounding out the top six.

In the final Pro race, Day was out front for the first lap and half but Bevan made his way through, charging for the chequered flag and a well-deserved win. Walker was down pecking order off the start in around seventh, but he moved steadily through the pack to take third ahead of Carl Bunce. Morgan was fifth and Tom Day put his wheels across the finish line in sixth.

Alfie Walker was dominant in the Clubman group, taking three wins from three starts. He was unstoppable, while behind him the pack jostled for positions. Robbie Wood had a strong second finish in the first race with a consistent Danny Smith in third. A table-top off in the second put Wood out of contention but the tough Scott managed to complete five laps to get a finish, and then got back on his quad for the last race to take and impressive second. Danny Smith finished second in race two ahead of Dylan McKenna and rounded out the top three in the final.

The Masters once again went to Ed Davies who had a trio of wins ahead of Johnny McKnight and Greg Fisher.

Catrin Davies had an impressive win in the first Inters moto

Over in the Inters/Novice/Ladies, another Davies put in a storming ride in race one to take a start to finish win. Gavin Roach held off a late charge from the championship leader Tom Bainbridge, who finished fourth, while Harry Walker held it together to take third. In race two, Walker was out front until the last lap when Roach made the pass for second with Davies following him through. Dillon Stepney was in the frame to take third. Walker finished fifth. Walker made up for his second race set back by taking the holeshot in the third race and kept his wheels clean for the duration of the race to take his first class win of the season. Stepney was a strong second and Davies stayed with the boys in third.

In the 250s, Chad Beevers, Josh McKnight and Luke Berlyn all maintained their starting positions to the chequered. In race two, McKnight was out front for the duration, while Berlyn and Beevers swapped position at around half race distance for Berlyn to finish runner up and Beevers. Ross Dillon showed the Open machines his Air-cooled wheels with a fifth place finish. In race three, Beevers and Berlyn held positions to the finish and Dillon put in a magnificent performance to take the third spot.

Frank Marston was out front again in all 100cc Geared races, with Olly McDonald claiming three runner-up positions. Ellie Stott was third in the first two races with Reggie Binskin take the last race third place. Harriet Mewse again rode her heart out to take all three 50cc race wins.

Olly McDonald was second in the Geared 100cc
