Leon Flint in the 250 class and Harry McGurk in the 125s dominated the first competitive races of the season at Glasgow on Sunday where 8 riders were lucky enough to compete at the Ben Fund Spectacular in front of a large crowd, on an unusually mild Sunday afternoon in the spring Sunshine North of the Border.
Leon and Harry won both their races, in what was an eventful afternoon, and the three other riders in the 250 class were all making their racing debuts on their 250 machines, and they were the also very impressive. Jordan Palin, along with Ryan Morris and Danny Curl who also both put on a great show, and would have been pleased with their afternoon’s work.
Palin looks as he will soon get dialled in to his 250 machine, and it won’t be too long into the season before he will be challenging the leading 250 riders.
In the 125s, it was a McGurk one-two, as Harry won both his races, with younger brother Sam picking up two 2nd places, and certainly keeping his older brother on his toes!
Harry was pleased with his race and got rid of his demons of the Glasgow track where on his last visit, broke his arm.
Corban Pavitt and Alex Goldsborough both blew the winter cobwebs away with Alex coming 3rd in the 1st race, and then Corban getting the better of Alex in the 2nd heat.
So a good day had by all, and next stop is Peter Karlsson farewell at Wolverhampton next Sunday where there will be 8 youth riders competing.
