BHR ROUND SIX: BHR CAD­WELL PARK

Classic Racer - - CLASSIC RACER ONTRACK -

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.
