Scunthorpe Short Track

 Ross, 31, in the middle of first proper dirt track meeting.
It's taken a while to update from Scunthorpe but it was another good day's racing. 20 or so entered into the Thunderbike class, so there were two sets of three heats, for a 12-man final. I won a heat, my first for a while, and qualified 5th for the final. I ended up coming in 4th, just like the last round. A pretty good result, beating some very handy riders. Right behind me in 5th was Drogo Michie on the Co-Built, in his first Thunderbike final. Result of the day.

The best bit of the day for me was to see Ross 'King' Herrod of Rusty Nail Racing make his debut. Ross had raced his C90 at Dirt Quake and marshalled at the last round, so had done his homework. Dave Skooter Farm leant him his #31 600cc Rotax framer to compete in the novice class. Ross was listening to advice and looked the part from his very first lap. He put some great races, then in his final, on a wet, slick, but great fun track, came third in the Novice main. What a star. He did Team Skooter Farm proud.

Well done to Adi Collins #1 winning the Short Track title, his third, and Neil Martin, #26, winning the Thunderbike championship. G
