NATTERJACK "TOADALLY AWESOME"


Heavy rain in the Southeast during the week gave way to a gloriously sunny weekend and despite some bog the course for the 2015 Natterjack Brit Champs round was primarily dry and the going good. 

MATT WARD crests a hillock on MX test  

In the E1/4 Class Matt Ward pushed hard to secure a 2nd place on Day one and repeated this on Day two with another 2nd. Matt struggled a bit  on the soft sandy mx test and the tight wooded enduro test, which were both ridden twice on each day and with no loss of time on the going he was unable to catch the flying Dan Mundell who won the class.

FELIX WARREN powers through the soft sand but failed to get the times needed.  

In E3 Felix Warren piloted his MOTO-WARD KTM 300   successfully without time loss but was unable to record consistent test times. 

ADAM BRADY had a consistent ride both days to record best team times

In clubman E1/2 MOTO-WARD riders Adam Brady and Ben Harding were close on each others day one test times with Brady just pipping Harding for 8th and 9th positions respectively in the class .

 

BEN HARDING Good ride day one but day two proved its often all in the pre race prep.

 However Day 2 saw Brady storm ahead finishing 10th in class whilst Harding had a chain derailment on MX test 1 in the morning and and an issue in the final enduro test of the day which gave him test times that did not live up to his day 1 scores and which ultimately made him slip down to 15th place on day 2.

 

With the fine weather and slack check times the event appeared easy but the unforgiving terrain especially  on the ranges meant that there were some tired and aching bodies driving away from Bordon on Sunday night .
