SUMMARY
1: From the gate, with Pickering way out in front.
2: First start ruled unsatisfactory. second start, the Potters duo lead from the gate. Both of the Falcons fall on the last lap, Elkins on 4th bend, and Prynne on the 3rd. Prynne remounting for 3rd place.
3: Atkin from the gate.
4: Elkins has engine failure at the start. Coles makes the gate, while Staechmann misses it. Stekkers gradually closes, and tries to blast round Coles on the final bend, of the last lap, only to take a heavy fall, crashing into the fence. Thankfully he is soon up, albeit with what appears to be a hand injury.
5: Atkin wins from the gate, with MacDonald losing all chance by going too wide into the 2nd bend.
6: Pickering from the gate.
7: Stephens makes the start, but Staechmann bursts past on the 2nd bend. Felton is always in rear.
8: Coles comes in as a tac. sub. only to be excluded for just exceeding the 2 minutes. A great race between Burrows and Eldridge. Burrows gated, only for Eldridge to go by on the straight at the end of lap 1. Burrows then re-takes the lead on the 2nd bend of lap 3.
9: Simmonds in as tac. sub. Atkin makes a superb gate, from the outside, and holds the Falcons pair at bay for the 4 laps.
10: Hare falls on the 3rd bend, of lap one. In the re-run,the Potters win it from the gate, with Burrows edging past Stephens coming out of bend 2.
11: Staechmann from the gate.
12: Stephens wins it from the gate, with Atkin unable to get in a blow. Elkins trails in, with more bike problems.
13: Staechmann gates, with Pickering in support. A 5-1 looks on the cards, until Pickers grinds to a halt at the end of lap 3.
14: Stephens in as tac. sub, and the Falcons win it from the gate.
15: Unsatisfactory start, the first time, with Stephens warned for not sitting still at the gate. At second start, Pickering gates ahead of Coles. Staechmann goes past coles on lap 2, and edges ahead of Pickering on the last lap for a Potters 5-1.
