South-East Grand Prix Rd3 – Hethersett

HETHERSETT HAWKS / YELLOW BRICK MORTGAGES had a very busy and successful weekend. It included getting their first League wins of the season and hosting a staggering number of riders on Saturday after contractors finished laying concrete in the pits the day before!!

Saturday’s South East Grand Prix Round 3 (which doubles as a regional round of the British Youth and Junior League) attracted 65 riders, 29 of them were Under-10 and 19 came from the home Club.  There were A Final victories for Luca El Labany in the Under10s and Mason Martin in the Under-16s (his was by default but he rode exceptionally well to drop just three points in the combined qualifying heats).  Other Hawks to catch the eye were  Nyla El Labany, Oscar Copeland, Ronnie Harding and Aiesha Musa plus George Morris in his first competitive match.
