Newark Castle had quite a successful weekend at the Doncaster City Centre Race at the weekend . A big crowd lined the 1km circuit with police motorbikes leading out each race. The first race the under 8s had Jude de Toit and Leo Bass amongst a field of around 30 . As soon as the race began it was clear that Jude was going to take some stopping now that his dad has decided to get him a bike with more than one gear , he romped home to take victory by some way. Leo Bass is looking stronger each week and is unfortunate to have such a strong field every week keeping the podium finishes to a minimum , however 5th place is a great position when in front of you is four UK top ten riders . In the under 10s Finley Bass and Joe Ward were competing in a massive field of 40 plus . Finley got off to a terrible start failing to get clipped in leaving him near the back of the race , he chased down for 3 laps and got on to the leading bunch , the sprint was a bit chaotic with lapped riders getting in the way but he managed to get a good 3rd place and his 10th podium this year . Joe was involved in the second group which seemed to change positions constantly , it was hard to see exactly what position he came home in but my guess was around 18th , not bad for your first race of season in a high class field ,
Jude de Toit
