Wheldon dominates on Bike-Sports debut
Written by Joshua Barrett
Radical expert Rob Wheldon made his debut in the 750MC Bike-Sports Championship at Silverstone and immediately made an impression by putting his SR3 on pole position and in the first race he drove away from his competitors eventually winning by ten seconds. Tim Gray managed to finish in second place but had to fight his way through the field after only qualifying in ninth place in wet conditions, which the Spire never goes well in. However, Gray still won class C. He finished ahead of the Radical PR6 of Jon-Paul Ivey who claimed the class B honours ahead of Adrian Reynard.
Wheldon once again dominated the second race by showing off all his Radical knowledge. This time, Ivey managed to hold off Gray in the battle for second place overall. The two cars had a titanic race long scrap in which they both brought home class winning trophies. Tim Porter had one of his best races where he finished in fourth place overall and second in class A.
Championship contender James Breakell had an awful weekend, firstly he was involved in a red flag start line incident in the first race with Richard Stables. Then in the second race he had a broken driveshaft in the closing stages after running in fourth position.
