Typically fraught proddie action as the FZ600 Yamahas of Ash Beckett (37), John Warwick (58), Dominic Clegg (4), Martin Ratcliffe (7) and Adam Reeves (8) arrive at Shaw’s hairpin under the proverbial blanket. After five hugely entertaining races it was two wins each for championship leaders Warwick and Beckett and a first 2019 proddie victory for Reeves.

The CRMC was at Mallory Park for its penultimate 2019 meeting and with club and ACU championships coming to the boil the competition was intense, as reported by Graham Lawlor and Pete Morris.

A big entry and some new, if temporary, partnerships meant that the sidecars produced close racing in both the 750cc and open classes. Typical action here as Andy Street/Alan Cracknell (76, MRE Imp 998), Jason Reilly/Kevin Hunt (58, MRE BMW 1200) and Jack/Dave Gristwood (Moorespeed BMW 1070) power their way round Gerards in close order.
