WARM WITH A SPOT OF RAIN?

5th July 2016

Err, not quite!

More like 'totally tropical' (very hot and dry) for Race One in the morning and 'when's Summer coming?' (decidedly chilly and torrential rain) for Race Two in the afternoon.

Here's the Race Report courtesy of and with sincere thanks to it’s author,  Josh Barrett >

2016 750MC ROC Bikesports Championship, Rounds 6 & 7, Snetterton 300, Saturday 25 June 2016

Race One 

The Radical PR6 of Joe Stables dominated the opening race of the 750MC ROC Bikesports Championship at Snetterton, where despite a slow start, Stables retook the lead by Palmer and eventually went on to win by 30 seconds.  Will Brown took the brief lead on lap one and was able to live with the pace of fellow PR6 racer Stables, as well as being well clear of Adrian Reynard, who came third in his Radical SR3, taking Class A honours,  fending off the close attentions of Mike Davis in his PR6. Philip Knibb was second in Class A, six seconds clear of front-row man Jason Rishover, who made an even slower start than that of Joe Stables and wasn’t able to recover as well as his qualifying times would suggest.

Race Two

The second encounter was a very wet affair after a thunderstorm earlier in the afternoon. This time Jason Rishover made the best start by far and never looked back - his Radical SR3 eventually winning by nearly 20 seconds, with Will Brown behind. Both Jason and Will took respective class victories, with Will Brown passing early class leader and race one winner Joe Stables on lap five before going on to pull out a four second margin by the flag. Phil Knibb took the fastest lap on his way to passing Mike Davis for fourth – they switched positions of the final lap of the race.  Richard Wise (Spire) came sixth.  Three RGB racers contested Class D honours in both races. The Mittell’s of Oliver Hewitt and Daniel Larner had a couple of great battles. The older spec car of Larner eventually came out on top in both encounters; race one was the closer finish with just half a second separating the pair.

The next outing for the ROC Bikesports Championship is very soon indeed!; at Anglesey on Sunday 17th July, but for now you can find full results, championship positions and photos from the Snetterton weekend on the 750 Motor Club website:

The Driver of The Day Award (kindly donated by Rock Oil facilitated via the ever-enthusiastic and always helpful Neil Cox of Corinium Motorsport) was awarded to Daniel Larner for winning Class D in both races. As Trev B and Neil C both said, we are really pleased to see support for this Class coming from the RGB Guys, long may it continue and we look forward to seeing you at every round; you're very welcome indeed Chaps and please spread the word!

And speaking of numbers, notwithstanding that a few entries were unable to actually make it on the day, what a great grid we had, albeit a sharp and soggy exit was the final order of the day for most everyone after splashing around in Race 2. Oh well that's one of the joys of racing here in the UK I guess! Nonetheless, sorry to see the wet taking it's toll on a couple of loyal competitors' cars; hope you get sorted soon and without too much pain in the wallet Guys.

We are very much looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible at Anglesey on Sunday 17 July 2016 which is now only a little over a week away! It would be very nice indeed to have a day of sun and warmth there which would doubtless make this unique track/venue a totally unforgettable day for all concerned. Fingers crossed then!
