Summer Series Club Race Rd 2

Friday 15th July saw the second round of the Leicester Huncote Hornets Summer Series. 18 riders turned out for this race with some new faces as well. As always riders were battling it out for the win in each formula but with that bonus of a free race or £20 on hand for a bit more motivation.

The weather was a lot better than round 1 so we was in for a treat.

Formula 4
This time round we had some riders for Jacob Daniell to race in Formula 4 which meant he could race his own age group, although he held his own last time out in round 1. Jacob had a perfect evening winning all his motos and final. 2nd place went to Mazie Harper from Birmingham who also took away the free race prize for next time. 3rd place went to LHH’s Emme Clarkson.

Formula 3
Ben Weiss took a nasty crash in round 1 so came back for this round wanting to prove a point, and boy did he! A perfect afternoon for him winning all motos and the final which gave him maximum 104 points for the standings leaving him in 3rd place overall for the series. No Charlie Powell due to injury which meant the series lead was up for grabs, Gabriel Davey takes over the series lead after coming 2nd behind Ben in the final. Gabriel also took away the bonus free race prize. Third place went to Leon Hill in the final which moves Leon into 2nd place in the series. We saw Enzo Smith race his first summer series event and bringing his mate Tyrese Williams, these two were have a right battle all evening but Tyrese got the better of Enzo in the final coming 4th with Enzo in 5th.

Formula 2
Last rounds winner Arlo Phealan was on holiday for this round so top spot was up for grabs. Ollie Pegg was another rider to have a perfect evening winning all motos and final ahead of Lewis Haslam. These two have got a real battle on their hands and the series points proves that with just 3.5 points separating the two. Third place went to Max Clarkson in his first summer race and 4th went to Martin Smith who also took the free race prize.

Formula 1
Shaun Issitt sat this one out due to his bike still sitting in an Italian airport after the Euro champs. Rhys Wood kept his bike rubber side down this round and left Huncote with no cuts, a win and £20 in his back pocket, not a bad evening to be honest. Aaron Geary took second place which also moves him up to second in the standings 24.5 points behind Rhys who is going to take some catching up. Edward Poles from Derby made his first appearance in the series claiming a hard earnt 3rd place, it was hard earnt as well due to the 4 motos being a bit of a shock to the system. Will Goode took 4th place ahead of George Hunt in 5th and Josh Barsby in 6th.

Summer Series Club Race Rd1

Friday 17th June saw the first round of our new race series. 20 riders turned out to battle for the win, along with prizes and cash as a bit of a bonus.

Rain tried to dampen spirits but us at Leicester Huncote Hornets are a different breed and we battled through it.

Ben Weiss took a nasty crash which left him out of the final and Ben Rowe pulled out after struggling with illness. It was Charlie Powell who took the win in Formula 3 and the dice landed on 1 meaning he also took away the free entry fee for the next race.

Formula 2
Arlo Phelan had a perfect evening winning every lap taking home maximum points. 2nd place went to Lewis Haslam with Ollie Pegg taking 3rd place. The dice landed on 5 come final time meaning Morgan Marsden who finished 5th will take the free entry fee next time round.

Formula 1
Rhys Wood had a mixed evening to say the least, winning his first 2 motos but went down hard in the first corner in moto 3. He sat out the last race but came back for the final a beat Shaun Issitt who finished 2nd with Aaron Geary in 3rd. Not only did Rhys take home the win, some track but he also won the roll of the dice £20 as it landed on 1. Well done to the three lads William Goode, Josh Barsby and George Hunt who stepped up to Formula 1.
