The first set of round three races have taken place at The Resorts World Arena, NEC, Birmingham, with all youth classes and the first-ever Pro-Am Cup race now completed.

New faces at the top of the 65cc Youth Cup kept things interesting with youngsters Isaac Ash and Jamie Keith finishing ahead of Belfast winner Zane Stephens. The other Belfast winner, Freddie Bartlett, didn’t get the result he anticipated. His charge was brought to an abrupt halt on the opening lap when a tuff bloc covering wrapped itself around his rear wheel, locking it and finishing his race.

In the Team Green Supermini Cup, Raife Broadley returned to the top, taking the win some three seconds ahead of Ethan Sills with Tom Harris continuing to show consistency in third. Arenacross regulars Tye Jones and Ezra Blackwell stepped into the breach when Hudson Roper and Wal Beaney were ruled out of the weekend due to injury.

The Rookie Cup is bolstered for this weekend’s double-header with the introduction of three new riders adding a European flavour to the group in the form of Frenchman Axel Boldrini, German Max Lausch and the UK’s Preston Williams. Series leader Ben Clayton took the afternoon win ahead of Adam Collings and Josh Greedy.

Luke Bull blitzed the opposition and enjoyed a flag-to-flag win in the Pro-Am Cup. Luke Dean and Trystan Williams rounded out the top three.
