Magnificent weekend for the Panthers
A busy weekend for club with a trip to Norwich for the British Youth and Juniors on Saturday and the South East Grand Prix at home on Sunday, producing some magnificent performances.
Kesgrave bought a very strong team to Norwich, which resulted in Ollie Wright winning the Under 8 and Lewis Brinkhoff winning the under 10. In the under 10 Kesgrave were in total domination, with the top 5 places going to our riders – awesome!
It was the first BYJL outing for Magnus Vincent and he made it into the Under 8 B final. The spokesman has a nice article about success of the Kesgrave and Ipswich youth policies, Amazing Youth Policy, that is encouraging new kids to take up the sport and developing the talent in the teams.
And so to the Panthers home track for the SE Grand Prix. The racing was very close with a number of clashes and near misses. Today the under 8 were copying the under 10 from yesterday, with Kesgrave taking the top 3 positions – the winner being Ollie Wright, followed by Ollie Reynolds and Daisy Steward. The Under 10 also repeated their performance from the BYJL and secured the top three places, Lewis winning, followed by Regan Repman and James P0mroy.
The under 13 is always going to be difficult against our friends and national team champions Ipswich, but Tyler Brinkhof performed brilliantly to come second. Details of the overall Grand Prix standings are on Gary’s website.
