Tony Whitehead has put some hours into this set of results as a number of riders changed bikes and classes for Ryedale and we had to verify everything was correct. There things to check on the official results from the organising team on Ryedale so we couldn’t jump into action straight away.
Let’s hope the results are quick in coming from the Keilder K2 and we will be checking bikes and classes at the start to speed the results up.
So, here are the points and the standings after two rounds of the 2017 All Terrain Rally Challenge series, this is a new web address for the results – http://www.rallymoto.co.uk/atrc-points-2017
Nigel Beaumont leads the Overall
Nigel Beaumont is now heading up the overall standings with 36 points out of a possible 40 after two rounds in the Challenge. Dave Leach, as usual is near the sharp end and chasing with a total of 29 points, Mike Wells is in third with 22. It is noticeable though that both James Ford and Chris Green have won a round each and sit in fourth equal place having already dropped a round, so expect the leaders to move around a bit after the Keilder K2.
The Rally Lite 1 and 2 classes are now the biggest and most competitive classes in the ATRC with 42 riders split between the two classes.
In the Rally Lite 1 Class the top three are Iain Davis, Duncan Sanderson and Richard Rowley, with all the riders completing the first two rounds and only three points difference between them.
The Rally Lite 2 Class sees Nigel Beaumont and Dave Leach being first and second with Chris Green and James Ford equal third – looks like this class will be very competitive and it certainly shapes the overall standings in the ATRC.
Rally Class has Rob Loupart leading the pack by a good margin over Mike Wells and Tony Whitehead.
Big Bikes sees Adrian Middleton romping away at the head of the class with Mark Kinnard and Andy Shaw chasing him for the points.
Hayden Rushton leads the Trail and Multi class over Andrew Wardrobe.
It’s only a few days to Keilder so we will have so see how the points situation fairs in a weeks time.
