Three and Four wheels at Dean Moor

Report and pictures by Tracey Thacker

The Iveston & Satley MX club hosted the first round of the ACU British sidecarcross championships of 2021 at Dean Moor MX park in Cumbria over the weekend of May 29/30.

The weather was warm and sunny all day but unfortunatly due to issue with injuries there were only two races for each of the sidecar and quad championship races, but the top team didn’t disappoint and there were some great battles throughout the day.

In the first sidecar heat Brett Wilkinson and his Swiss passenger Maxime Cuche, took an early holeshot into bend one with a big battle behind, Stuart Brown and Josh Chamberlain held a close second keeping their rivals in sight throughout and almost passing many times, a few mechanical issues meant they did not have full power which hindered the challenge, but it was still a great battle.

 

Jake Brown and Joe Millard

Jake Brown and Joe Millard tucked into second but had a few problems with the gears which delayed them, dropping back out of the top five, but they recovered well and fought back to third, passing Dan Foden and Nathan Cooper who were on great form, managing to hold the advantage over George Kinge and Ryan Henderson. Liam Mudie and Chris Booth held sixth.

In race two Brett Wilkinson and Maxime Cuche, took another holeshot this time Stuart Brown and Josh Chamberlain were determined to blast into the lead and by the end of lap one they had a safe advantage, holding on to take a great win, and although on equal points they took the overall win as the second race result takes precedence. Neil Campbell and Ross Graham put their race one mechanical problems behind them and held on to third despite strong challenges from behind. George Kinge and Ryan Henderson where close behind with enough points for third overall. Dan Foden and Nathan Cooper held fifth with Liam Mudie and Chris Booth holding on for sixth.

 

In the quad championship there was drama on the first bend with Dean Dillon and Harry Walker when they got so close their bikes locked together with the wheels jammed and were going no where, it took almost three laps to separate them.

Dafydd Davies, overall quad winner.

Dafydd Davies took an early lead with Murray Graham second chased by Mark McLernon, he was determined and soon blasted into second and chased after Dafydd Davies but could not find a way past. Alfie Walker fought through to take a great fourth just ahead of Oliver Sansom, with Lestyn Rowland taking sixth.

In race two Dafydd Davies was once again on top form, taking an early lead and holding on throughout for a second great win and overall on the day, leading the championship. Alfie Walker held an initial second but within the first few laps older brother Harry Walker found a way past. Mark McLernon soon blasted through to take third, with Oliver Sansom working hard to keep him in sight. Justin Reid was fifth but later disqualified for a late change of bike when on the line, this promoted Dean Dillon to fifth with Alfie Walker holding on for a safe sixth.
