With its flowing layout and two long signature straights the Snetterton circuit in Norfolk is one of the fastest tracks in the UK.
Last weekend saw the return of the BEMSEE series, as riders headed to Snetterton for the 8th round of their season, as the fight for maximum points began to heat up as we entered the penultimate round of the year.
Competing in the Thunderbike Extreme class on the Steve Jordan Ducati shod with the ContiRaceAttack Slick, Sarah Jordan qualified 8th in class on the Saturday. The first two races saw Sarah finish 9th in the Extreme class, before she took a superb 4th by climbing her way up through the field in the final race.
Also competing in the Thunderbike Extreme class as a Rookie, Michael Copley of New Mick Racing took two podium finishes after qualifying 3rd on the Saturday. After an off in the 3rd race of the weekend at Blundells, Michael and bike both picked up a number of injuries but are hoping to be back in action for Brands Hatch.
Not taking to the field in the Thunderbike class this time around despite a string of podium top spots, Luke Harris looked to focus his attention on the MRO 600 series on another Steve Jordan prepared machine. Riding on ContiRaceAttack Comp treaded race tyres, Luke put in a personal best in qualifying to take 6th position before a mechanical problem caused him to pull out of the race just before it had started. Luke moved across to the National Senior 300, taking two 3rd places on the podium. This means he has competed in 3 different classes in 2014, taking podium finishes in all classes.
A spectacular crash in the MRO Minitwins saw Kurtis Butler borrow a bike from a fellow competitor for the final race of the weekend, but prior to that he had taken a 2nd and 1st position in class along with two fastest laps on his #124 Suzuki.
The final meeting sees riders heading to the Brands Hatch Indy Circuit at the beginning of October, with everything still to play for!
