2016 East Anglian Championship

Great turn out at the East Anglian championships, lots of racing with some catergories involving 7 races and some people had entered more than one catergory, so quite a work out.  Brilliant performance by the Panthers who dominated the U8 and U10 groups and two of the top three in the U13 and vets.

Panthers in Local Press

Due to the Kesgrave Panther’s success in the recent British Team Competitions they were honoured with the front page of the local In Touch Magazine. This is distributed to every house within the club’s main catchment area of Kesgarve and Rushmere.

Included was  a report inside and mention of the successful Monday club night training sessions, open to all new comers.

In another freely distributed local magazine – “Kesgrave News” (that also has an online version) there was a nice feature on page 19 of the July edition. It can be seen here: http://www.kesgravenews.org.uk/

The article mentioned that the Panthers had held the Under 10 team title for 7 consecutive years and also retained the Under 13 title. Also that the veterans team reaching their final as well.

The Under 10 team British event has been a highlight of the clubs success over recent years and has been something that many of the new youngsters starting out in the sport have been inspired by.

2016 Suffolk Champ, League and SE GP Rd 5

Been a very busy calendar over the last few days.  Big turn out for the Suffolk Individual Championships, 11 events at our home track, typical British summers day of sunshine and torrential rain.  Well done to all the riders, good to see that Panthers girls doing so well in the U10, hopefully next year we can get a few more in the older events.

Amazing weekend at the British Team Championships

In a word Awesome – only a small team of Panthers travelled to sunny Wolverhampton (not normally something you hear in the same sentence) but they certainly delivered.  All the teams got to the finals and we retained our U10 and U13 titles.

Brilliant performance from all the teams; in the over 40s you could tell the other teams were very wary of a 2nd Kesgrave win so rode very defensively, the U10 was very close but Charlie Beaton was superb to win the run off (a mature / quality ride) and the experienced U13 team dominated the heats and the final. To drop only one point in the first round of the event from gate 4 is incredible – I think this really shook up the competition.  Great team ride and special mention to Lewis and Jake who both secured maximum points.

Now that sadly there will be no longer an U10 competition, it does mean that our 2016 team of Charlie Beaton, Noah Woodhouse, Tommy Rope, Charlie Parr and Lucas Woodhouse will be reigning British champions for ever!!

Been busy with loads of photos, please click on the links for 2016 Under 10 Champions photos, 2016 Over 40 Finalists photos and 2016 Under 13 Champions photos Enjoy.

Well done to our friends at Ipswich Speedway for putting out such a comprehensive team that covered all the team events and are worthy winners of the overal team cup.
