The Wallace and Alex show at Prescott
Another fabulous weekend of hill climbing at Prescott produced some top-drawer performances.
The standout being Wallace Menzies who broke the class ‘L’ record on both his qualifying runs.
However, Alex Summers won the first run-off in 35.30 seconds, 4 hundreths ahead of Wallace with Scott Moran third in 35.84 closely followed by Dave Uren and Trevor Willis.
The second run-off was late in the afternoon but it was still warm and sunny and great track conditions. Alex set a time of 35.40 seconds, only for Wallace, running last, to stop the clocks at a sensational 34.65- three quarters of a second under the course record standing at the start of the day. Scott was again third and Dave Uren fourth ahead of Sean Gould and Will Hall, finally back on track after his early season dramas.
Alex now leads our ‘Top Ten Challenge with 114 points, one ahead of Wallace with Sean on 112.

In the class based Midland Championship Paul Howells has won his class on a maximum 14 occasions but has yet to break any records. He leads the Championship with 126 points followed by Ash Mason on 121 points. Ash has achieved 3 new class records this year and the 3 additional bonus points awarded mean that he can potentially overhaul Paul’s lead and take the outright Championship win at Loton Park.
At Prescott new class records were established in Class A(i) by Michael Thompson, in ‘D’ by Ash Mason, By Lee Griffiths in K(iii) and in ‘L’ by Wallace who achieved it on both his class runs.
