This coming weekend the super 2013 AMCA Wulfsport British Masters will reach its penultimate round, with a first ever visit to the Brookthorpe circuit, near Gloucester. And, the race for glory is now very much on as all nine Masters’ titles are still undecided and up for grabs.

Approaching the business end of the season, riders know that a strong Brookthorpe showing could well push them on to touching distance of a crown.

In Battery Energy Pro MX1, its still Kristian Whatley leading the way and after bagging three out of five overall wins, the MBO Sport Yamaha pilot currently sits 73 points clear of Nathan Watson. Showing that consistency certainly counts, at present Josh Waterman, Ashley Wilde, Daniel Hutchinson and Matthew Moffatt fill the other top six places.


Also well in control of his own destiny is Battery Energy Pro MX2 pace-setter Neville Bradshaw aboard his Putoline Honda. At present Nev heads Bryan Mackenzie by 99 points with the Watson brothers Ben and Nathan, Luke Norris and Dan Thornhill chasing hard.

Following the last round in Yorkshire, Reece Desoer has leapt to the top of the GSP Products MXY2 Youth class. With Desoer taking the overall win at Fatcat, previous table topper Jamie Ellis has dropped down to second and now finds himself some 55 points in arrears.

At present it looks like either Desoer or Eliis for the title with Jack Seaborne, Josh Cadman, Kyle Lane, Loukas Maggio, Callum Whaling and Chase Neale amongst others still after a final medal position.

With Jay Hague a non-starter at FatCat in the Putoline BW85cc contest, both Joe Jeffries and Brett Pocock have over hauled the North East flyer. Taking his fifth podium placing of the Masters season at FatCat, the super consistent Jeffries now holds a 108 point advantage over Pocock with Hague third, Matt Lomas fourth and Howard Wainwright fifth.

Over in Putoline SW85cc, Archie Osmaston still tops the table and like Jeffries has been ultra consistent during 2013. Having bagged four out of five podiums, Archie currently holds a big 137 point Championship advantage over Ben Burridge, Matthew Pocock, Declan Hunter and Nathan Claughan.

After leading Pirelli MX1 for the entire season, Shaun Scrivens has now dropped to third in the title race after dislocating his shoulder during moto one at FatCat. Whilst Adam Cook took the win in Yorkshire, it’s now Jason Kendrick in pole position for the Championship glory with Adam Smith, Jake Thompson and Daniel Chapman right in the mix.

Taking gold in all five rounds, Bradley Wheeler looks odds on favourite to be crowned Pirelli MX2 King. At present Bradley – the son of former top rider Brian Wheeler – sits 143 points ahead of Steve Turvey with Ryan Osborn, Aiden Wigger and Ryan King the next best.

Having bagged four out of five podium golds in the Muk Junkie Amateur MX1 contest, Daniel Hutchinson will be looking to move one step closer to the 2013 crown at Brookthorpe. The only rider to defeat Hutchinson in the race for overall glory at any of the Masters rounds has been Chad Yarranton after taking top slot at Hawkstone Park during round four. The Passion Racing Kawasaki boss currently holds second spot in the title standings, 116 points in arrears but still ahead of the likes of Luke Meredith, Gavin Houson, Scott Bates and Matthew Thomas.

Five out of five podium spots as ensured that Richard Cannings has led the Amateur MX2 class right from the word go. Matching Cannings consistency all the way though is Adam Wells, who at present has a 67 point deficit to make up if he is to overhaul his rival. Presently holding third is Zac Stealey with Carl Benjamin forth, Jack Drogan fifth and Jack Kelly sixth, despite not competing in the opening two rounds.

Action on both days should be underway by 10am and going right through to 5pm. Admission costs are £5 for the Saturday and £10 Adults, £5 OAPs/Children 5-15 and Children under five FREE on Sunday when the Pro class goes racing.

The Brookthorpe circuit can be found on the outskirts of Gloucester, just off the A4173 with a postcode GL4 0UT. With this being the penultimate round five of a seven round series, expect the action to be very fast and furious.
