BMB – Rnd 4 – Three Sisters

After a 3 hour drive we arrived at the Three Sisters Race Circuit. Ready for Round 4 of the British Minibike Championships and more importantly for the Junior SM90 Class.

We were first out on Saturday Morning for the Junior SM90 / Mini GP Practice 1. Leo settled down well, and whilst getting used to the circuit set a best lap time of 1:52.10.

Junior SM90 / Mini GP Practice 2 was conducted prior to lunch. Leo was looking great, shaving 19.31 seconds of the previous lap time; setting a 1:32.39.

After lunch saw qualifying sessions and things were getting better with Leo getting better and better.
Q1 saw Leo set a 1:26.31 and gaining P19 (11th in Class) and in Q2
P16 1:23.27 (10th in Class).

Sunday morning arrived and a bit of a panic. A rubber bung had come out of the engine. We were able to resolve the issue with a tab washer to retain it and all ready for Warm up.


Warm Up saw Leo set a 1:27.09 on Lap 4 out of 6. The fastest lap time so far this weekend. Awesome weekend so far.

So its time for Race 1 at 3 Sisters.

Leo had a better start and only dropped 1 place down to 19th after starting P18 on the Grid. On lap 6, Leo regained P18 after passing Ollie Brooks #19. Leo finished P18 (15th in Class) and set an even better lap time of 1:22.75. The fastest lap during the weekend.


Sadly due to a serious incident in Race 1 of the Pit Bike Spares Stock 140 Group B Class; all 2nd Races were cancelled for the day. But it was good to here that Nathan Gardner #254 was airlifted to Hospital and is doing OK.
