Despite this, the course returned to it’s usual clockwise direction and a first ever 3 jink combination which saw many different theories of achieving the fastest possible route.
Neil Wallis Tennant took the top spot (1:46:79), with Rob Fox in 2nd (1:48:42) and Mark Wraith in 3rd (1:48:96). A change of bike to a WR 250 for Mike Neillans saw him again awarded Fastest Novice with a time of 1:53:00. It was also announced that Mike and Rob have now gained sufficient ranking points to move up to Green Bib status for the 2014 competition season.
We also had Scott Howlett of Berkhamsted Motorcycle & Car Club take part on his ’08 Sherco 290cc, following his try-out of Moto Gymkhana at Herts Bike Fest. As his bike does not strictly conform to our Rules but he turned in the fastest time of 1:46:29 on his second attack, he was awarded Honrary First Place.
Scott’s thoughts on the day were “Had a really great time at my first Moto Gymkhana with a great bunch of people who are all very helpful, friendly and gave fantastic advice. I was over the moon with my end result and it’s definitely made me hungry for more Moto Gymkhana in the future.” We look forward to seeing you again, Scott.
