BHR ROUND SIX: BHR CADWELL PARK
Under the leafy Lincolnshire landmark corners that link together to make Cadwell Park were some sterling performances with the BHR club. Mike Yiend was on hand to capture some of the great action.
‘Fully committed’ would be the best way to describe Nick and Ben Weston’s attack on The Mountain. They won all four big wheel sidecar races convincingly and were third overall against the newer and theoretically faster outfits in the Pre-73 kneeler class.
4: The BEARS sidecar class continues to grow in popularity and has attracted none other than multiple British champion Sean Hegarty and passenger James Neave to the grid. Unsurprisingly, they took all four wins but runaway championship leaders Steve Gagg and Sylvia Hase weren’t too far away in second. 4
1 1: Carl Smalley was unbeatable in the Classic Racer sponsored BEARS, taking his immaculate BMW K100 to all four wins in the unlimited F3 class.
3: Nick Bedford had to give second best to Ian Henshaw in Saturday’s runnings of the Palletforce Pre-1962 350cc class, but it all came good on Sunday, as Bedford took his Manx Norton to both wins. 3
2: Robert Duesbury lost out to Mick Scutt by 0.3sec in the first Bantam race but he got his own back in race two, winning by just over a second. The Sunday races were less tense, however, with Duesbury taking them both far more comfortably.
Jack Hebb and his 500cc Honda 4 were there or thereabouts for the first three air-cooled Japanese races and Jack got his reward in the last race when he came out on top in a close finish with Daniel Pritchard to take the chequered flag by less than half a second.
Richard Molnar was the big winner of the weekend, taking no less than 12 wins across three classes aboard 350, 500 and 521cc versions of the Molnar Manx Norton.
