After snow cancelled the opening round of the North Gloucester season last month, last weekend at Anglesey saw riders finally get the chance to get their 2018 campaigns underway.
Shropshire based Pro Bike Racing were flying the flag for Continental on a packed 600 grid, with James Evans up against some formidable TT talent who were clearly using the meeting to get in some much needed practice ahead of the annual trip to the Isle of Man.
Despite stiff competition, James got his head down to finish in a very creditable 6th place.
It was a similar story for Knight Road Racing in the Supertwin class, joined on the grid by both Ivan Lintin and Rob Hodson during the course of the weekend. However, it didn’t seem to phase Alan Russell, who finished 2nd on the podium on two occasions, sandwiched in between Hodson in top spot and Lintin in third.
Last year’s Minitwin champion Paul Wardell was also back to defend his title on the Beeline Suzuki SV650, but after qualifying in first place, he had to settle for second on both occasions behind eventual winner William Holland, who will lead the championship heading into Cadwell next month.
Paul also joined Alan in the Supertwin class, coming away with a well earned 3rd place in the opening race, before being relegated to 5th by the arrival of Lintin and Hodson in the second.
Congratulations to all the riders on some excellent results.
