The ACU British Timecard Enduro Championship makes a return to Scotland with the eagerly awaited new venue at Gretna.
The Michelin REME 2 Day Enduro will take place over the weekend of 16th17th September with the event being held all on private land near Canonbie. Team REME have set a 20 mile lap consisting of Forest, Moorland & farm land including a few streams to keep it technical & enjoyable for all classes. The route will include one enduro test per lap, this along with refuelling will all be within close distance of the paddock.
Brad Freeman goes into this event with an 18 point lead over nearest rival Danny McCanney, while Jamie Lewis fresh from winning the C2 class at the recent International Six Days Enduro is currently 3rd. Hot on his heels though is Jack Edmondson back from his recent wrist injury & former motocross star Alex Snow having a good 1st year in enduros. Others hoping to shine will be youngster Dan Mundell who had an awesome debut in the ISDE along with Joe Wootton, Lee Sealey & Fraser Flockart, all 4 riders bringing home gold medals for team GB.
In the highly competitive Experts class in-form Alex Walton will be hoping to catch early series favourites Jay Thomas & Bradley King. Others to lookout for are ISDE Trophy Team rider Kevin Murray, Jon Hunt, Roger Holland, Jordan Ridgeway plus Andrew Bissett & Marc Evans who both hope to continue their fine form after bringing home gold medals from the ISDE earlier this month.
In the Clubman class another close battle will commence between Fred Adams, Allyn Taylor, Harry Hillier-Rees & Lewis Ranger, all capable of taking class wins on their day.
Rosie Rowett will no doubt pick up where she left off at in the Ladies class, but Ellie Cooke is back in action after recovering from injury.
Both Andrew Edwards (Over 40’s) & Paul Davies (Over 50’s) will take some beating in their respective classes.
