He got away in sixth place in race one but had moved up to fifth after the first corner, and when the rider in front of him fell, he chased the rider in front – the current championship leader – with just a wheel separating them at the chequered flag.

Race two was held in hot and dusty conditions and Le Viellez didn’t manage such a good start as he found himself 12th at the first bend.But he picked up his pace and moved to eighth, then to sixth, which he held to the line.

His next competition is in Bedée next month.

Another Jersey rider, Evan Kaye, made his 65cc debut at this event and produced a good performance.

He was holding 18th place in race one when his engine blew on the last lap, but he was able to borrow a Guernsey rider’s spare bike for the second race and crossed the line in the middle of the pack.

Eleven-year-old Toby Luce, who was competing in the 85cc smallwheel event, finished 14th in his first race and 13th in the second.
