ENJOYABLE COMEBACK: Stephen Green in action at Ugley

After an eight-year absence from grass track racing, Sudbury Motorcycle Club member Stephen Green recorded three wins over four legs of a support race at the British Under-21 Championship at Ugley in Essex.

He only took part after his friend Peter Daw lent him a bike to ride in the solo older two-valve and upright class, and in leg one he stormed into the lead, winning the race in one minute and 3.14 seconds, recording a speed of 54.02mph.

Green claimed victory in leg two with a time of one minute 3.22 seconds and a speed of 53.87mph.

In leg three he was beaten for the first time, but managed second, and was back to winning ways with a time of 1.05.50and a speed of 52mph in leg four.

Green, of Great Cornard, 38, was first smitten with the racing bug when his father took him to a moped speedway meeting near the historic scrambles, motocross and enduro track at Tye Farm, Great Cornard at the age of four.

He is now thinking over 
a return to grass track 
racing next year, but in 
the meantime he is keep-
ing to enduros and his next ride is at his home track 
of Great Cornard on October 5.

It will be the last round of the Dave Barkshire Motorcycles Two-Man Championship and will see him partner his brother Mark, who won the Eastern Centre Solo Enduro Expert Veteran Class this year.
