Injury prevents Tutton from winning his class

A broken arm robbed Sudbury Motorcycle Club rider Ian Tutton of the chance to win the clubman class of the EMG-Kia/Eastern Centre Enduro Championships.

Tutton had a 10-point lead going into the final round, and needed only fifth place to secure the title.

Unfortunately it was not to be, as his injury just days before meant he was unable to race in the round, staged by Diss Motorcycle Club in the forests of Santon Downham.

A great disappointment for Tutton, but he has secured runner-up spot and is expected to be upgraded to next year.

Best placing for Sudbury members on the day were: 6 Jez Moss, 11 Paul Belton, 12 Mark Fenwick and 15 Paul Davis.

The first 10 Sudbury riders this year are: 2 Tutton, 3 Belton, 4 Gareth Young, 7 Jez Moss, 9 Stephen Green, 10 Paul Davis, 11 Jason Ager, 12 Kevin Webb, 14 Adrian Coppen and 16 Kevin Mole.

In the expert class, Sudbury’s points scorers on the day were: 7 Andy Tyler, 8 Richard Walters, 9 Phil Roper, 11 Darren Nicolaou, and 14 Graham Mays. Andy Quorn and Jeff Sharp failed to score.

Overall, the top six Sudbury riders were: 4 Phil Roper, 5 Richard Walters, 7 Graham Mays, 8 Andy Mason, 9 Darren Nicolaou and 11 Nick Barrett.

In the championship class, it was a good thing Chris Hockey had already won the title for the ninth time as he had an off day, finishing eighth

Jamie Roper took first place with Steve Mason fourth, Sam Toy sixth, Craig Roper seventh and Ian Parker 11th.

The final placings for Sudbury members were: 1 Hockey, 2 Jamie Roper, joint 3 Steve Mason and Craig Roper, 7 Stevie Roper, 9 Parker, 10 Ricky Roper, 15 Jack Berry, 17 Sam Toy, 24 Kelvin Vant and 28 Chris Hart.
