A MOTORCYCLE racer from Ingleton had a weekend of mixed results at the fourth round of Classic Racing Motorcycle Clubs Championship.

Competing in Lincolnshire, at Cadwell Park, Harley Rushton set the class lap record aboard his 350 Honda, as well as winning another race on the same bike.

The first race of the weekend was held on a drying track Rushton's class win gained him valuable championship points.

The second 350 race of the weekend saw him fight his way to the front by the start of lap two where he managed to pull away from the competition setting a new class lap record in the process.

He also took a solid fourth in two races aboard the 500cc Manx Norton. Unfortunately the bike was not running well, so was retired and didn’t compete in the final 500 race of the weekend.

Rushton's weekend was cut short when the 350 Honda then blew up on the Sunday, putting him out of action for the remainder of the championships.

Rushton said: "This was a weekend of two halves. I am able to take the positives away from it; we had a great days racing on Saturday.

"My speed was there on the 350, shown by clinching the lap record and the bikes was running great with thanks to Ted Woof, Jon Sunter and my dad for making sure everything is right before I go out on track.

"Unfortunately the mechanical problems we suffer don’t portray the massive effort everyone puts in but this is racing.

"We will take away the positives from this weekend with the results and records we did get. The bikes will be back and ready to race for the next round at Croft on the 8th and 9th July."
