Next racer to feature in Road Racing News, new for this weekend one week on Oliver’s Mount Spring Cup series, is leading East Yorkshire roads force Callum Ward.
Amongst the stars last Saturday of Supersport Group A qualifying, Ward’s potent turn of speed took him to third on the time screens and gave him pole position for the final heat race, ahead of a certain Dean Harrison!
Although 99 times Oliver’s Mount race winner Harrison powered to Supersport heat 3 honours, Kingston Upon Hull’s Ward backed up his qualifying pace with an excellent run to second following jump start penalties applied to Joe Thompson and Michael Browne.
Moving onto the Supersport (A) finals and more commendable results were gained aboard his own squads YZF R6 Yamaha with respective 14th, 10th place finishes acquired.
Whilst the showpiece, blue riband Bob Smith Spring Cup would see Ward place 12th after eight frantic laps of England’s only active closed roads circuit.
An established specialist around the iconic Oliver’s Mount course, he proved again last weekend his credentials and I wouldn’t be surprised to see further prominent results sealed by the affable Yorkshireman at the remaining Scarborough events during 2021.
