THE final meeting of the motocross season was held by Oakham Motocross Club on Sunday with a great day’s racing involving more than 200 riders from across the Midlands.

The track was in great condition and allowed for some fast and furious action.

Race of the day was in the MX1 Seniors class with Melton’s Danny Partridge, racing for the Oakham club, taking the overall win. Second overall was Tom Gilbert, also from the Oakham club.

Another local rider, Mike Hand who took the MX1 Expert class overall despite not winning a race while James Marsh was second overall in the Over 18 Juniors. James got better as the day progressed and finished it off with a race win.

The meeting brought the season’s home racing to a close but Oakham riders still have plenty to race for as the Regional Championship continues until the end of October.
