Another fantastic finish to our most successful year, a real celebration of our youngsters achievements. I was trying to count all the trophies being presented but lost count. Highlight of the evening was of course the Dad’s dance event, Willie being crowned the winner after some “stiff” competition.
Thanks to Leigh Lanham (Ipswich Witches Captain) and Stig for being the MC for the evening. Photos now available at 2013 Presentation Night
The end of season fun day was held on Sunday 3rd November and included the last round of our club championships, plus some fun races organised by Pete and of course the normal competitive Dad’s race.
It’s also the chance for the kids to see if they can be more scary then normal – quite a challenge!! Well done to the fancy dress finalist.
Thanks for all the parents / helpers who made it happen and fitting finale to the most successful season to date. Now we can look forward to the presentation night on the 15th November 18:00, just hope the tables can cope with all the trophies.

The last of 10 rounds was held at our neighbours Ipswich immaculate track. Some great racing on the day and a hard championship to win as the riders have to perform well on a wide rnage of track across the South East (and of course the dedication of the parents travelling around the region).
Total domination from the Panthers, I will have to work out the percentages of Panthers in the top 4 positions, but expect it to be more than 80%

Another commanding performance by the Panthers securing the majority of honours in the end of season championship for the top 16 riders of each age group. To the younger riders credit many also qualified in the age group above them and our National U10 Champion, came overal third in the U12 group – after a brilliant run off for second with his brother Tyler.

Congratulations to all the Panthers who have won the 2013 BYJL championships. First time we have won the combined event and follows on from the success of the U12 titles for the last 3 years.
Further sucess on the individual front for Ollie Reynolds and Lewis Brinkhoff for winning the U8 and U10 both on the maximum 200 points, and Tyler Brinkhoff getting 2nd overall.
Eight Panthers made the long trip to Bretford for the 2013 British Under 10 individual championships and we achieved a fantastic 1st and 2nd in the boys competition – congratulations to Lewis and Ollie. Daisy and Jake were very unlucky, both falling, if they had kept their position it could have been two more Panthers on the rostrum??
The track was interesting, some could even say unqiue, especially for our East Anglian riders who are not used to hills! The track from the gate to corner 1 was down hill, corner 1 to 2 was very sharp / pointed and then up hill to corner 3 / 4 with a very high kerb.

Another fantastic performance from our youngsters at the second round of the BYJL national round 2, taking the Under 8, 10 and 12 titles. Oliver Reynolds and Lewis Brinkhoff were efficient as ever winning their U8 and U10 categories. The U12 final had to be re-run 4 times with first corner incidents but Tyler Brinkhoff was patient and with perfect timing took the victory from Harrison Bacon by a wheel rim.
Overall the team gained 240 points to win the meet, with a very strong showing in the U10 catergory with 4 Kesgrave riders in the top 5 positions. Pictures are now available in Photos=>2013=>BJYL
