The Racebuykz. com MRO 1000 Clubman Championship at Bemsee has also proved to be a very competitive class over the course of the season. Facing a wide range of weather conditions, similarly to all other clubs In the UK.
So far the championship has visited 6 different tracks; Brands Hatch Indy, Oulton Park, Cadwell Park, Donington National, Snetterton and Brands Hatch GP. Going into round 6, Mark Bridger was leading the championship by an impressive 97 points. Solid podium finishes and wins every round bar one, led to his raging success in the first half of the season. Bridger was yet to finish a race off the podium which is an impressive feat over 13 races by anyone’s standards. Round 5 at Snetterton 300 saw Bridger take third in Race one followed by two wins in races two and three.
Glen Walsh came out on top in Race one who was sitting in third place in the championship with 175 points, only 15 points shy of second. Max Morgan was sitting in second place in the championship with 190 points. Walsh had finished on the podium eight times out of the ten races he had finished in.
Daniel Johnson had been extremely impressive on track this year. Picking up six wins out of only seven races finished. Missing out on Donington Park and Snetterton have had a big effect on his championship position. He was sitting in 5th place after round 5.
Snetterton saw Glen Walsh take the win by nearly 6 seconds ahead of second place man Robert Cresswell. Mark Bridger managed to pick up third place trailing by 23 seconds! The race was wet with showers throughout which led to some great battles on track. This also led to 9 riders not finishing the race after crashing out.
The last round (6) at Brands Hatch GP was an extremely competitive one for podium places! Max Morgan had a fantastic weekend picking up two wins and a second place out of three races. Mark Kendle also finished on the podium In all three races. One first and two thirds helped his consistent championship campaign and added some all-important points to the table. Kendle finished second in race three but was put back to third after receiving a ten second penalty for a jump start along with five other riders. Glen Walsh managed to bag himself the last podium spot in race one but did not manage to get back on the podium in the following races. Mark Bridger came away from round six with two second places in races two and three. Consistent points for Bridger only adds to the fantastic championship battle that is currently taking form.
