It’s fair to say that Joe Walton’s race plans for this year haven’t quite worked out as he expected, with the EaziGrip Racing Supertwin suffering from some serious issues at the first meeting of the year back in late March.
After an aborted trip to Aintree earlier this month, Joe has finally got the bike up and running and decided to make his debut at Darley Moor last weekend in the Mini Sound of Thunder class.
Despite the lack of track time this year and the extremely hot temperatures on the Sunday, Joe got straight to work and took a hard fought victory in the opening race.
The Preston based rider then followed this up with another superb win, and a further two podium finishes with a 2nd and 3rd place in the final two races of the day around the popular airfield circuit.
Racing in the Formula 600 & Peak Cup classes, Tim Burrows unfortunately struggled with technical issues which forced him to miss two of his four races. However Tim was able to get things together for the final Formula 600 contest of the weekend, although he found himself right at the back of the grid. Tim fought his way up to 10th on a packed grid, and will be looking to come back stronger next time around.
