CLUB NEWS: A busy weekend for Norwich
Norwich staged their first Club Championships on Saturday 17th October at Harford Park with the Under 8’s, Under 10’s and Under 14’s all taking part. Frank Spauls was the winner of the Under 8’s event with Connor Jarrett winning the Under 10’s and Shaun Kell the Under 14’s.
Norwich had 4 riders in action at Hethersett in the re-arranged Norfolk Under 16 & Veterans Championships. Grand Veterans World Champion Paddy Wenn won the Veterans Championship for the 6th time in succession (and the 7th time overall) with a 6 ride maximum but he had to work hard in heat 2.
The Under 16 event saw Marcel Moore add to his success in the Under 19 event by adding the Under 16 Championship with 15 points. He won his first 3 races meaning he just needed to finish his final race to clinch the title which he did by following Tom Blackmore home. Tom finished as runner-up with 11 points. Shaun Kell also represented the Stars and finished 4th with 9 points after losing a run-off for 3rd to Hethersett’s Mason Martin.
This coming Tuesday (20th) the Under 16 and Open Club Championships will be staged at Harford Park, start time 7pm
