Earl Taylor rode to second place at the Barkston Heath Cat 4 race last Saturday... missing out on first by the length of a wheel.

The Boston Wheeler is now just two points away from his Cat 3 licence.

Charlie Porter and Craig Thursby finished a respectable 12th and 14th at the last road race of The Lime Kiln Series.

Neil Coles recorded a personal best by almost two minutes when competing at the Nev Crane memorial 25TT.

He crossed the line in a time of 1 hour 04.16 mins.
