Jeff TurnerThe 4th and final round of the Dave Barkshire Motorcycles Two Man Enduro Championship at Tye Farm Great Cornard organised by the Sudbury Motor Cycle Club produced some very close racing. The track was in perfect conditions with the help of the rain two days before which kept down any dust and two of the original fields were stubble instead of grass which provided a challenge. Kevin PalmerThe Championship Class was a closely fought battle all day In the end Craig Roper (Sudbury)/Rob Blackman (Castle Colchester) took the win on 71.67 laps with the next two teams tying on 71 laps so it was down to the special test and by 11 seconds Jamie Roper/Glenn Walsh (both Sudbury) took 2nd place with Rob Aldridge (Diss)/Ed Pooley (Stowmarket) 3rd, Lewis Bond’s (Lowestoft) Michael Ridgeusual riding partner Tom Braddock was not available due to family reasons so he teamed up with Ben Grice (Lowestoft) and they finish 4th Rob & Aaron Nicoll (Halstead) were 5th pushing Will Kerry (Woodbridge) and Sam Toy (Sudbury) into 6th place by a better time of 16 seconds in the special test. In the last session Toy had a bad fall dislocating his knee and with help of a fellow rider Michael Ridge he got on his bikeRoss Taylor and finished without penalties. With the Braddock/Bond unable to score any points would Kerry/Toy low finish on the day be enough to win Class Title and provisionally they have won the 2016 Championship Class Title by 6 points with Braddock/Bond 2nd while there is a tie for third place between Nicoll/Nicoll and Aldridge/Pooley and this will be decided on the Series tie break rules.Sam Toy In the Expert Class Ross Taylor(Diss)/Michael Ridge (Stowmarket) were unstoppable taking the win on 69.33 laps with Michael Wyatt/Richard Bensley(both Diss) 2nd on 67.67 laps, Dan Willis (Stowmarket)/Chris Wright (Diss) 3rd and Daniel Piper/Stephen Green (both Sudbury) 4th. Overall Taylor and Ridge have a perfect score by winning all four rounds with Wright and Willis 2nd Will Kerryand Danny Wright/Alex Barkshire (both Diss) 3rd.

There were six teams in with a chance of winning the Clubman Class Title and one of the favourites Aaron Barkshire/Kyle Betts (Diss) were not riding so what could the other teams do. On the day Kevin Palmer (Norwich)/Jeff Turner (Sudbury) had a perfect ride completing 67 laps with no penalties with James Barker/Brett Halworth (both Sudbury) 2nd 65.67 laps, Duncan Griffin (Diss)/Dean Curry (Sudbury) were 3rd, Matt Smith/Marc Norton (both Sudbury) 4th and Tom Morris/Paul Wright (both Diss) 5th.
