MATCH REPORT: Perfect conditions for round 7 of SEGP
Hethersett Hawks/Myhill Decorators successfully staged Round 7 of the South East & Eastern Grand Prix. A total of 41 riders took to a near perfect track on a splendid September afternoon and there was some excellent racing.
Suffolk riders dominated the younger age groups as usual with wins for Luca Woodhouse (Kesgrave – Under-8s), Charlie Parr (Kesgrave – Under-10s), Noah Woodhouse (Kesgrave – Under-12s), Lewis Brinkhoff (Kesgrave – Under-14s) and Reece Johnson (Ipswich – Under-18s). Home rider Owen Wells took care to take third place in the Under-18s nursing a broken thumb.
Home riders finally made a big impact in the Seniors and Veterans competitions. Leigh Cossey, Harley Hamill and Danny Machin took first, second and fourth in the Seniors while Glyn Morgan held off stiff challenges to win the Veterans.
Morgan will resume his challenge in the Eurovets Series this Saturday travelling to Hellingly in Sussex for the penultimate round.
