Last weekend saw the finale of the North East Motorcycle Racing Club season take place at East Fortune Circuit in Scotland.
East Fortune is the site of a former airfield in East Lothian, and is situated around 25 miles from Edinburgh, with regular meetings held throughout the year with several clubs.
Heading into the final meeting of the year, Thundersport regular Ian Lawton had one hand on the Pre-Injection 600 title but would need to keep his wits about him to secure it.
Cold and windy conditions greeted the riders upon arrival, but the rain held off much to the relief of many.
Jon Dickie and James Reevely both got away well from the grid, giving Ian plenty of work to do on the Saturday as he fought hard to take two 2nd places on his ContiRaceAttack Comp shod Yamaha.
On the Sunday, Dickie would suffer a mechanical failure in the opener to leave Ian and Reevely scrapping for the lead. After opening up a gap and keen to avoid any costly mistakes, Ian backed off but soon found Reevely on his rear wheel, with James slipping past to take the win on the line.
In the season’s final Pre-Injection 600 contest, Ian got his head down and pushed the bike hard to fend off challenges from Dickie and Patrick Foreman to secure a well earned win and the title.
Congratulations to Ian and team on their success this season, and they’ll be back in action with Thundersport at Donington later this month.
