Although, remaining sixth in the overall standings, Alfie is certainly proving to be a strong competitor for Robbie. Second place Olly Waters again had a consistent weekend, ending up third on the podium. Alfie and Joel, although missing from the podium were thorough over the weekend picking up enough points to remain in the top five.

The SW85 class was a spectacle to watch at Little Silver.

The final competitors at this round are the WMX Adults. The girls fought it out at the last round, unfortunately Kathryn lost her position at first in the championship standings, only by 9 points and a whole race could change the championship standings again. Elaine took over from Kathryn and now holds the red plate for the class.
