Whitby Hosts Final Round of Offroad Motorsport UK National Series for 2014

Well that’s it, the end of the very first Offroad Motorsport UK National Series. Looking back over the season, there has been mixed fortunes and we even got rained off once but the last round at Whitby was the best.

 

The track at Whitby is certainly the most picturesque track that I have ever been to. Situated high on the hills overlooking the Esk valley, with Whitby and its famous abbey in front of a panoramic view of the North Sea, it has lots of jumps but still with a natural feel due to the dramatic nature of the landscape.

 

Eight groups of riders ranging from autos to adults raced over two days on a well prepared track. Some dust came up towards the end of each day but the sprinkler system coped with that, without too much trouble.

 

The autos were totally dominated by Joe Howard with five straight wins. Harry West and Ollie Addy vied for the next two places with Harry coming out on top.

The same thing happened in the Junior group Alfie Jones stormed away with five wins taking the first place, with Joe Ross and Tyler Graves fighting it out for second and third. Ross had the second place in the end but there was some very close racing in this group, which all managed to stay pretty close throughout the races.

 

The small wheel 85’s saw Taylor Hampshire and Danny Clarke vying for first place. Taylor got there in the end with Brogan Johnston securing a strong third place.

 

The big wheel 85’s were a different story. Aiden Williams, Sammy Price and George Sim-Mutch chased the top positions all over the weekend, trading places race by race. In the end Aiden took the overall honours from Sammy, with George coming in third.

 

In the last of the youth groups, the MXY2. Kyle Lane took the number one with three wins over the weekend. Mitchell Warhurst came in second and Dan Whitehead was third. This is an incredibly fast group and sometimes it is hard to tell the difference between them and MX2.

 

We had a very good line up of clubmen who put on a very good show. Ben crane came out on top with two wins and twop seconds. Steve Harrison came a close second with one second place and three thirds and Charlie Sutton filled the third place with a good mix of results. It was a pity that Max Klein did not score in race one as he had two wins and a second in the other races which just kept him off the podium.

The numbers in the MX2 group were disappointing in this round but Ashley Smith and Thomas Matthews vied for first and second place and ended up with 176 points each, with Ashley coming out on top under the tie break rule. Robbie Dowson came third with four thirds.

 

Ryan Voase came out on top in the MX1 group with four second places. Dan Thornhill got two wins on Saturday but could only manage two thirds on Sunday which kept him off the top slot. Andrew Smart took the third place.
