Michelin MX Nationals – Round 2 2016 – Pontrilas, Wales 6/7 May
Conditions – Hardpacked soil, deep ruts and very rough.
Round two took the boys to Pontrilas in south Wales, as this was the replacement for a cancelled round two at Landrake.
The circuit rutted and roughed up almost immediately and gave some pretty challenging racing conditions for the weekend, with heavy overnight rain on the Saturday which made for a rescheduled programme of three races rather than four,
Both the Beamish boys put in a big effort with Ollie scoring 14-16-14 finishes, earning 15th overall and Charlie scoring 11-10-15 finishes for 10th overall in the Y2MX class and 2nd overall in the 125cc class.
Glad to be back in the thick of it after a little gap in the race calendar, they are looking forward to the next few weeks of race events.
