2016 Overall Championship Results

Points pivotal in final Pre85 punch up at Pontrilas


After 8 rounds of WME Pre85 Motocross Series action in 2016 – it couldn’t be any closer at the top of all the Championship classes, and with 180 points potentially available going into the final round of 2016 mathematically it is still all to play for across all the WME championships including the overall WESTONS CIDER CHALLENGE CUP Rockstar…!. Overall pic

2016 WME Pre85 rookie Jason Aylett has ridden like a full on Rockstar in his first year of WME action having taken 6 overall wins.  Going into the last round he has a dominant 121 points lead over his next rival and only has to cruise to safe points finishes in each race to be crowned WME Pre85 top dog in the 2016 WESTONS CIDER CHALLENGE CUP. 13047688_1592253021065538_7460955181555794404_oJake Chamberlain has worked very hard for his current 2nd place position, But as we all know Jake is now out of the final round through injury picked up at the last WME International in Belgium and is sure to be demoted off the 2016 overall rostrum. 2nd and 3rd WESTONS CIDER CHALLENGE CUP podium places will be a close run thing – fought out by Kevin Butcher, Jim Shand, Dean Warren and Kevin Reed who are currently all separated by just 20 points.500 overall

Barring any disasters Jason Aylett also looks set to take the LUCAS OILS 500cc Championship this year and given Jake Chamberlains cruel luck in Belgium it looks like Kevin Reed (only 20 points behind) should overhaul poor Jake to secure 2nd place this year. But with 159 points in hand over 4th placed James Reeves and Nathan Smith, Jake will hope he’s done enough already to round out the 500cc podium when the dust settles at Pontrilas – but mathematically either James or Smith could still take home enough points to nick 3rd place in 2016 WME Pre85 500cc championship and pile some more pain onto Jake’s miserable month.

250 overallThe action at the top of the WMB 250cc Championship has been frantic all season.  Anyone of 3 riders could win it and all the podium places will be settled at Pontrilas. 13055711_1592250501065790_8024651059054171620_o3rd in 2015 Kevin Butcher has lead the 250cc class most of this season but Jim Shand (2nd in ‘15) is only 9 points behind and really wants to win it this year. On form Dean Warren has missed a round this year but has been closing on the top two fast in recent weeks, just 4 points further behind Dean could overhaul both Jim and Kevin to snatch the Championship at the last gasp. This is set up for a photo finish and the 250cc racing will be intense, clearly none of these guys can afford any mistakes or DNFs.125 overall

3rd overall in the 125cc championship in 2015 Dave Russell, has ridden his pants off all year, consistently finishing right up there against the bigger bikes. Quite frankly Dave fully deserves to take the 2016 MATT GARDINER 125cc Championship at Pontrilas and w13235192_1012991355457192_5068188441245417695_oith a 55 points gap over Neil Griffiths, Dave needn’t take any chances. He will hope Neil has his hands full dealing with the very capable Chris Pritchett who is just 14 further points adrift and will no doubt be trying very hard to swap places with Neil in the final reckonings. It looks like Nick Mauger will just miss the championship podium this year and just behind him Matt Harris, Zac Hackett and Sam Russell are within 34 points of each other in the battle for 5th Overall this year…13901408_10154510144834880_4415979008669763260_n4 st overall

3rd in the 2015 4 Stroke championship Dom Durkan has consistently been the best finishing Pre85 thumper rider all season and has lead the RH LEGAL SOLICITORS 4 Stroke championship since round one. However Jordan Pope is now only 24 points behind Dom going into the last round and as we all know Jordan is super quick when he has reliability,  It is very possible that Dom could be disappointed this year right at the very end – which would be harsh… Behind Dom and Jordan, Ade Dark should be able to do enough to maintain his points gap for 3rd place in the 2016 4 Stoke championship. However it only needs for Ade to have just one DNF and last years 500cc class champion Paul Kirby to turn up on his game and this could change in favour of the number 27.

So, all in all, nothing is decided and the last round at Pontrilas should prove to be a proper punch-up for Pre85 points… Can’t wait…!pontrilas-round-9-poster-pic
