TThe sec­ond round of the Lus­combe Suzuki Leeds Bri­tish Youth Class C and D Bri­tish Cham­pi­onship moved to Birdlip Quarry in Glouces­ter­shire where the ex­pe­ri­enced Zona One Club en­ter­tained

forty rid­ers over four laps of ten ex­cel­lent haz­ards. wo out of the four classes in the cham­pi­onship have rid­ers on equal points, mak­ing for a very in­ter­est­ing sea­son. At the top of the classes in the Class C Stan­dard Wheels Corn­wall’s Billy Green is head-to-head with Not­ting­ham’s Daniel Slack. The Cor­nish boy has a rare talent that has shone through since his early days but Daniel Slack has re­ally got into his stride and now shares the points ta­ble with Green, with both on 37 points. Brad­ford young­ster Joe Faun­thorpe and his Keigh­ley ri­val Ja­cob Snow­don are climb­ing the ta­bles rapidly. Snow­don has set­tled into a think­ing com­peti­tor and it cer­tainly shows. Yorkies are knock­ing at the door in Class C Medium Wheels, with Bumpy mem­ber Char­lie Mosley and Ed­ward Earle level on 37 points. In third place is the dy­namic Shrop­shire girl Alice Minta, and the auburn-haired girl takes no pris­on­ers with her at­tack­ing rid­ing style. The Zona One re­sults il­lus­trate just how close both Class C cat­e­gories are in strength. The boys mak­ing se­ri­ous waves in Class D Medium Wheels are Sur­rey School­boys Club mem­bers Jack Dance and his club col­league Dale Free­man. Jack is the max­i­mum points’ leader ahead of Free­man, with Brad­ford’s Ja­cob Smith and Cat­t­er­ick’s El­liott Laws equal on 28 points. Top of the ta­ble in Class D Small Wheels is Henry Stephen­son but Harry Hem­ing­way, son of Dan, held sway at Zona One on Sun­day. Do­minic Horne and Harry Turner head the leader board.
