2024 Spring Cup: Sunday Races Summary

Decent weather throughout the day, close no quarter asked, no quarter given racing, dramatic moments, Scarborough debutants catching the eye, chips, ice creams, cake, all the good stuff, what more could you want from a day out at Oliver’s Mount.

Fourteen races took place yesterday at England’s only closed roads circuit, the first of which was the second BDS Motorcycles Supersport B race.

A see saw battle between Cowton Racing’s Gareth Arnold, Johnny Stewart ended dramatically with both crashing out on the sixth, final lap at Mountside.

Their misfortune was David McArthur’s gain, with the Fostec Engineering sponsored rider emerging victorious ahead of Craig Szczypek, Two Four Three Road Racing Association Support race 2 conqueror, Brian Fuidge.

Stuart Hall and his immaculately turned out TZ 250 Yamaha proved as on Saturday, the cream of the Road Racing News Lightweights field, dominating Sunday’s action.

Top CB 500, 125/Moto 3 pilots Grant Whitaker, Tony Flinton joined Hall in going the weekend unbeaten whilst top Supersport 400 class exponent yesterday on two occasions was RVF 400 Honda jockey Tim Walsh.

Bob Smith Spring Cup runner-up Gary McCoy, enjoyed race wins times two, withstanding substantial pressure from SMT Racing’s Rob Hodson for Super Twins race 2 honours.

Madbros Racing’s McCoy additionally bested Wigan’s Hodson in the final twice red-flagged Supersport (A) race.

The race result was declared after just three laps from the race re-start, after Jay Bellers Smith tipped off unscathed at Farm Bends. The race’s original running was curtailed following an incident involving Joe Yeardsley post Sheene’s Rise.

Before fortunes dimmed down, Yeardsley had joined the Oliver’s Mount winners circle, winning a captivating second Classic Superbike race, edging out Team York Suzuki by McNeill’s Mike Norbury.

Norbury would finish one place better in the third Classic SBK race stint, finishing 9.4 seconds plus ahead of top challenger, Tom Weeden to bulk up his Scarborough wins resume.

Marcus ‘Spartacus’ Simpson aboard the LMR powered by Jon Cuff Electrical Kawasaki took the third, final Twins race spoils, having broke away from tenacious pursuer, Bishop Castle’s Barry Furber.

Simpson’s second Scarborough success also meant overall Super Twins honours for the weekend.

Putting to a side, the tumultuous ending to the previous B 600cc race, Gareth Arnold took his first roads scene win with Cowton Racing, in the last of the Supersport B races.

Sunday’s final race action saw another first-time Scarborough winner, this time in the form of Grant Aitchison.
