Cracking weather and racing with thrilling wheel-to-wheel dices at the fifth round of the BHR series produced a weekend of record breaking and a clean sweep in the ‘BEARS’ races for Ben Kingham’s flying ‘Brick’– his BMW K100 – with a new lap record of 81.14mph...

But Kingham didn't have it all his own way as the Trident of Gary Hirons and the Laverda of Austen Kear’s made him work for his victories.

Scott Harris had three wins - two with his Norton and one with the Ducati - and a lap record in the 'Over 50’s' race. Mike Bevan had a busy and a rewarding weekend with a total of five wins from some stirring encounters.

If you mention ‘Bantams’ there are two names that come to mind; One is Ian Scutt and the other is Mike Powell. This weekend was Mike Powell’s with four wins out of five. Ian Scutt had a disappointing weekend with a series of retirements – compensated by victory in the Richard Powell Memorial Race for Bantams held on the Sunday.

No BHR meeting would be complete without Mervyn Stratford and his remarkable Rudges and this weekend was no exception. A lap record and a win on Sunday Morning to start the weekend followed by a thrilling race-long  wheel-to-wheel dice with Graham Buller in the Palletforce Championship Race and overall victory in the Pre-1973 ‘Specials’ race on Monday - which gave him the 'Economy Appliances' Championship win.

The fastest race of the weekend was the Bob Newby Racing Championship which gave victory and the weekend’s fastest lap of 81.19 mph to Ian Carter on his Seeley G50.

Sidecars and three-wheelers seem to like Mallory Park. There is no real substitute for ‘cubes’ and outfits so equipped are at an advantage. It didn’t deter the other competitiors, however, as spirited encounters occurred in every race with the fearsome Morgans not having it all their own way with Steve Stevenson and his Broadstock BSA giving them a hard time.

The final BHR meeting of the year takes place at Cadwell Park on September 28-29.
