MATCH REPORT: 2014 Suffolk Open and Individual
Ten riders turned up for the 2014 Suffolk Under 19 & Open Individual Championship, staged by the Ipswich club at the Somersham track.
Five of the riders would also be competing for the Under 19’s title. Adam Peck made it 3 in a row in the Open event, but had to survive a run-off with Ashley Hill after both riders scored 19 points. Peck dropped his only point to Hill in heat 5, whereas Hill dropped his only point to Leon Mower. Jamie Chittock took 3rd place with 18 points, dropping his only points to the top 2. Richard Felgett finished 4th overall with 16 points which was enough to see him finish 2nd in the Under 19 competition behind Hill. A run-off was needed for 3rd place in the Under 19’s and this saw Charlie Rumbold defeat Dan Knights. Former Somersham rider Steve Copping presented the trophies to the top 3’s.
