It is the turn of Rye House to host the Mitas British Youth Championship this coming Sunday with a start time of 2pm.
Again a tremendous turn out with 44 riders competing across the 4 classes, which means an afternoon’s entertainment of 48 heats, which includes a final for each of the 4 classes.
As we enter the half way stage, making the final for the riders in both the 500cc and 250cc classes is vitally important, and to claim as many championship points as possible.
Leading the race in the 500cc by just 1 point is Tom Brennan with 48 points and with Kyle Bickley just 1 point behind on 47, the race for the Championship is most certainly on. As well as Tom and Kyle, Jordan Jenkins who got on the rostrum at both Rounds 2 and 3 along with the retuning from injury Sam Bebee, the race for the British Title is becoming very exciting.
In the 250cc class Jason Edwards who has won both the last 2 rounds takes a 6 point lead over Leon Flint in to Round 4, and on a track that Jason particularly likes, will be looking to extend his lead, although also don’t rule out Drew Kemp. In this championship the rules state that you can drop your score from 1 of the rounds, and with Drew missing round 1 due to a collor bone injury, he has already amassed 30 points from the 2 rounds that he has competed in.
With the support classes of both 150cc and 125cc also having a good turnout out of riders, which includes Nathan Ablitt who has yet to lose a race in any of his Championship races this season in the 150cc class, and the return of Harry McGurk in the 125cc from his broken arm he broke at round 1 in April, Sunday afternoon at the home of the Rye House Rockets is certainly one not to miss.
