CARL Nunn dominated the two-day bonanza of motocross held at Little Loveney Hall, Wakes Colne last weekend.

The rider took a hat-trick of wins in the Saturday Evening Championship meeting and followed this up with another hat-trick in Sunday’s Eastern Centre Solo Championships.

He had an easy win in the final on Saturday, finishing more than 18 seconds ahead of second-placed Aston Bird, having clocked up first places in his qualifying heat and semi-final.

Third in the final was Chris Bastick of hosts Halstead and District Motorcycle Club, ahead of team-mate Brad Tomlin in fourth.

Six Halstead riders finished in the top 10 in the consolation final. There was a win for Carl Parker, third place went to Steve Cadd, followed by Liam Fiam, Ollie Raymond, Andrew Rushton and Shaun Griffiths.

The second day of action took place amid heavy showers but despite this the full 13-race programme went ahead, with Nunn scoring another three wins.

He followed up another convincing 18-second win in the first leg by crossing the line a full minute ahead of Halstead rider Jason Morland in the second leg. In the third round it was local rider Chris Bastick who found himself pushed into second place by the dominant Nunn.

It was more even in the junior championship, the three legs being won by three different riders - Robert Hales, Halstead’s Lucas Harris, and Ryan Seabright.

Harris finished 13 seconds ahead of his closest rival in the second leg, while team-mate Sam Smith secured third in the first leg.

The Halstead club will be back at Wakes Colne for the Maxxis British Sidecar-Cross Championships with supporting solos on Sunday, September 2.
