Faultless Jackson wins five in sand race finale

In his final year in the 50 cc Automatic class, Elliott Jackson secured the overall championship on his Fox@cloud9 Malagutti with a faultless performance that earned him all five race wins, but he was chased hard by the two seven-year-old Jacks, Clayden and Galloway, who are both in their first season on the beach.

Clayden upped his pace and finished second, ahead of Galloway and six-year-old Daniel Hillion.

Petered out Ryan Caurel (9) was the 65 cc class high flyer.

The challenge mounted by Connor Hamon in race one petered out as he was forced out of the the second and third races, but he was back for the last two, and the pair blasted round the course at speeds up to 60 mph before Caurel won the day.

Side by side into corners were brothers Robert (9) and Richard (7) Pallot, while Jayson Baudains had a good day and had some well-deserved third places.

Charley Mills, Rikki Knowlton and Samuel Luce started together in the 11-14 yrs 80-85 cc race, but Mills shot ahead to win the Nicolle Rose Bowl, leaving the others to fight it out for second.

Luce duly filled that slot ahead of Knowlton.

Joe Bishop had a good race, despite a fall and Joshua Hamon will be one to watch next season.

Just three riders competed in the adult motorcycle class with Dave Levée winning the over 350 cc class on the day and Luke Le Moigne securing his championships title in the up to 350 cc class.

Sole lady competitor was Amy Gatehouse who showed she could keep up the the best on her 125 cc Honda.

Graham Godel took the chequered flag in the over 1600 cc Production class and Michaeal Binet, in his 1300 cc Astra, won his class.

John Fossey, Dave Moyse and Jason Mourant roared around the track in the beach car class and despite what appeared to be smoke belching from Fossey’s Dulon he stayed the course and took first place, closely followed by Mourant, who won the Perrin Cup for most points gained in the Beach Car class 2 race.

The event was sponsored by Jayen.

The traditional end-of-series fun races for officials and helpers then took place.

With borrowed cars and bikes those who spend so much of their time as marshals, lap-scorers, finish line officials – and two St John Ambuance crew – enjoyed racing round a few laps of the beach course as a thankyou from the JMC&LCC for their tireless work.
