DJ Good on his way to the championship.

Whilst a motorbike race at North Yorkshire had to abandoned due to heavy rain, the Scottish circuit had perfect racing conditions on both Saturday and Sunday and made for close fast racing. For the first time since they all started racing, most surprisingly all of the Whitley riders managed to stay on their bikes and not crash them.

With four races over the weekend for the Stock-Twin's, DJ Good made it a clean sweep winning all four races, although only by less than half a second in one of the races, on his Joblings of Whitley Bay Suzuki.

The results gave DJ his first NEMCRC Championship and also the John Webb Trophy, an award for for the best Stock-Twin finisher who has not previously won a championship.

Martin Crammond finished sixth in the Stock-Twin championships on his Arcol/Hermod Suzuki with 70 points, 15 points ahead of seventh placed Will Crichton on his Redcat Fabrications bike.

Whitley Warrior Dean Holland finished in ninth place on his Bowman Travel machine.

Entering the Mini-Thunderbikes, Martin Crammond finished seventh in the Championships, Dean Holland and Will 'Wolverine' Crichton tying on 22 points, joint 14th.

DJ Good also raced in a second class on his KEP Services Suzuki 4-cylinder 600cc, happy with a best place of fifth just one place behind the top ten TT rider Dominic Herbertson, ending the season in third place in the NEMCRC F600 championship.

New to circuit road racing Stephen Sutton had a best result of fifth in the Novice race.

Monkseatons Mark Henderson, competing as a passenger in the F600 sidecar championships, finished in sixth place with his driver Ken Minns. North Shields’ Dave Suddes had a good weekend winning the Pre-Injection Open Class.
