ACU Goldspeed British Quadcross Championship

ACU Goldspeed British Quadcross Championship Heads to Round Two at DunsEight

ACU Goldspeed British Quadcross Championship

QX Championships Round Two heads to DunsEight weeks after the opening round at Silverstone, this weekend the Goldspeed ACU British Quad Championship heads to Duns MX track. Duns is one of Scotland's best MX facilities having been established over 20 years.This Sunday, Duns will play host to all classes competing in what is sure to be an action packed second round organised by Quad Racing Scotland.

Dominating the first round, John Mitchell took two straight wins and so far hasnt lost a round in any competition this season. Hot on his heels and joint on 38 points are Carl Bunce who had an excellent first round finishing in second and James Hellewell who made a superb start with third place overall and is also leading the Under 21 Championship ahead of Stef Murphy and Cian Rogers.

With Justin Reid four points behind on 34 and David Wray on 33 there is no doubt that its tight at the top. After a round to forget, current British champion Paul Winrow will be looking to secure a podium finish and work his way back up the leader board.

In the ACU British Masters there had been some frantic and fast paced action with saw Irishman Paul McConway ahead of Geoff Sharp but joint on points, closely followed by Darren Bridge just five points behind in round one. No doubt the racing will be just as exciting to watch as they battle for podium glory.

With over 60 riders entered in various youth classes there will be plenty of action throughout the day as these skilled youngsters battle it out in a very competitive championship. Event organiser Margaret Graham commented QRS welcomes all competitors and spectators to Duns. I am pleased to announce that a prize fund is available. In MX1 there are prizes for each race, 50 1st place, 30 2nd Place and 20 for 3rd place. The entrance gates to the facility will be closed at 11pm and spectators are welcome from 8am onwards with a 5 per car entry fee.

There will be 12 races overall plus practice. The event is due to start at 9:30am with competitors and spectators alike looking forward to a thrilling day of racing.
