January 4th, 2022.

Quad racing made a welcome return to the Tyninghame Links track near Dunbar, East Lothian last month. The Ecosse XC Club, with the help of its sponsors and the Scottish ACU, was in a strong enough position to stage its first Winter MX Series since the pandemic struck early in 2020.

The weather wasn’t particularly favourable in the lead up to the opening round of the Michelin Rock Oil BikespeedUK SACU Ecosse XC Winter MX Championship. Even though race day was fine, the previous persistent rain meant the track rutted up and proved to be a challenging affair. However, the riders across all classes managed to cope and feedback suggests that a good time was had by all.

Former Scottish Quad Champ Michael Brewis led from start to finish in the opening moto, posting the fastest time on lap three in the process. He was followed almost to the line by Dwayne Barnes, but Ayrton Knowles, on a last-minute charge, pipped him to the post. Robert Bell, Davey Nixon and Richie Cornett rounded out the top six.

Brewis was again unstoppable in race two as he took his second flag-to-flag win of the day. Knowles was quickly past Barnes in the early stages of the race and didn’t look back, carrying his second-place position to the line with a healthy margin over third-placed Barnes. JJ Readman was next up in fourth, followed by Nixon and Bell.

A third win gave Brewis a round one clean sheet and his third post-to-post win. Knowles ran a trouble-free race and also posted a start-to-finish result in second. Redman and Bell were third and fourth, while Cornett and David Shields swapped positions a few times to secure fifth and sixth.

Overall on the day – top six:
1. Michael Brewis 135, 2. Ayrton Knowles 126, 3. Robert Bell 111, 4. Davey Nixon 108, 5. Richie Cornett 104, David Shields 100.
