Barham Club Practice 22nd May

Thanks to everyone who makes these practice days happen and of course to the landowner for the use of his land

Lord of Lydden
The 23rd & 24th of October saw the annual Lord of Lydden and Sidecar Burn-Up events at the Lydden Race Circuit. Sunday was a fine day and there was good racing in all classes - with Solo's, Scooters, Juniors as well as the sidecars (F1, F2 and classic)
Congratulations to Tom Ward for becoming the 2021 "Lord" and Tim Reeves for winning the "Sidecar Burn-Up"
If you missed it then why not try to get along to next years event?
Have to mention one of the junior racers who while dicing for the lead got pushed wide out of paddock bend and ended up doing half the straight on the grass (Made the start marshal move a bit smartish!) didn't really back off, got back on the track and was still dicing for the lead going into Pilgrims)
Harley Prebble (18) taking a wider line to get around Jamie Thomas (78)
Charlie Huntinford (76) leads Ethan Sparks (62), Filip Surowiak (75) and Clayton Edmunds (146) on the charge into Paddock Bend
Phil Jones (49) leads Alan Cavey (84) and Andy Wilkins (96) with Graham Wroome (92) pushing into the hairpin

British Veteran Speedway Riders Open Championship 2021
Held on 18th September at the Lydd Speedway circuit on a really sunny Saturday the event gave some excellent racing and with the fact that as a spectator you were right by the boards the atmosphere is really good. Oh and did I say entry was free, yes FREE!! Racing was split into 3 groups: Two Valve uprights, 4 valve uprights and laydowns. Derrick Keyes was there flying the flag for the Barham Club in the 2 valve class. Hopefully we'll be able to post some results later but due to other committments we were unable to stay for the finals.
Derrick Keyes (1) under pressure from Phil Kinman (4)
Paul Wichello (11) leads out of the bend from Darren Grayling (10), Chris Shallcross(12) and Chris Crouch (9)
Mick Ridgeway (5) leads the field of Burt Marshall(8), Steve Crook (7) and Martin Tappenden (6)
