Isabel Mayes winning the sprint ahead of Owen Massey and Adam Makepeace. 3 Laps was a clear call with Fin Godber beating Finlay Smith into 2nd withFraser Morrison 3rd.

Matthew Russell was victor in 3 laps Sam Lane crossing the line 2nd ahead of Hugh Hall-Craggs. 2 small laps was a victory for Megan Williams ahead of Finlay Williams and Thomas Wells.
