The second round of the Crewe & South Cheshire Motorcycle Club season was a real stop-start affair at Mid-Wales’ Tonfanau circuit last weekend, with several incidents leading to two visits by the Wales Air Ambulance.
Organiser however deserve immense credit for managing to squeeze a minimum of two races per class into the remaining time, with the Pro Bike Racing duo of James Evans and John Price both in action on ContiRaceAttack Comp tyres.
After winning his first six races in the Supersport 400 and Forgotten Era 250 – 500 class back in April, John was already in ominous form and he very much continued where he left off last weekend with two wins from two in the Supersport 400s.
An opening win in the Forgotten Era class further extended his lead in that championship too, but an uncharacteristic crash in the final outing of the weekend cost him the lead as he handed Paul Odlum the win.
Over in the 401 – 1100cc class, James faced stiff competition from defending champion Chris Mort who returned to Tonfanau after missing the opening meeting just over a month ago.
Mort dominated proceedings, but a podium finish for Evans ensured that he remains at the top of the points table on the Pro Bike Racing R6 which will be back in action this weekend at Cadwell Park.
Congratulations to both riders on their results at the weekend.
The next meeting at the Welsh coastal circuit will be in early July, with the finale in late August.
