Lindsay McKay won all four heats to take out the Post Classic 250cc class, was 2nd in the Post Classic 350cc class and 3rd place in the Ken Lucas Senior Challenge. All results came from Lindsay's 250cc Yamaha which was ably looked after by Lyall Bennett.

79 Stephen Kairl Honda125MTR
Stephen Kairl won the Forgotten Era 125cc class winning all 4 heats on his Honda MTR 125cc. He was not so lucky with his 350 after finishing a fine third in the first leg of the Forgotten Era 350cc class, in the second heat he had a major sideways moment on his Yamaha when it seized in the high speed turn one. The Yamaha was parked with a suspected broken crank.

69 jason Dunn winner of P6 125cc.
Jason Dunn and Paul Borg carried their fierce rivalry in Motolites to their P6 HONDA RS125's putting on some great racing swapping places continuously with Jason just edging out Paul for the weekend. Jason was also competing in the period 6 250cc class but got taken out by another rider in the first heat. Riders OK but some hasty repairs by his Dad Col got the bike shipshape for the rest of the event. Jason concentrated on the 125cc class after that.

93 Paul borg Chases Jason
Try as he might Paul Borg had to give best to Jason Dunn on the day but not without a fine display of close racing.

77 Tyler Bradford Pre Modern F3 125cc
No mistaking the style, regular Motolite rider Tyler Bradford finished 2nd in the Pre modern F3 class on his Honda RS125 with Michael McLean (Whites racing products) another bucket racer finishing 3rd in the same F3 class on his Honda 400.

81 Lindsay McKay

Some interesting Bikes at the BSFOS

98 Chris Swallow Norton ES-2
Not your average bucket racer but lets see, Norton featherbed frame, roadster es-2 engine highly modified, various bits and pieces looks like a very expensive dare I say it bucket racer. Quick too, rider Chris Swallow won every time out.

147 Greg Delsanto Maico Special
Greg Delsanto's interesting space framed 440 Maico finished 3rd in the The Forgotten Era 500cc Class.
