Scorpa Weekend Race Report


The sun was certainly out this Sunday and young team scarlet Tom Minta made the most of it with a fantastic overall win at the latest instalment of the 2018 S3 parts national championship, the Wainwright.


With a very strong and experienced entry Tom would have to be at his best! A early 5 on lap one would test tom but he kept his head and rode a the remainder of the lap feet up. Another low and consistent second lap would give to the win in front of S3 championship runner Guy Kendrew.


These types of events really seem to be suiting Tom on the scorpa with this win adding to his Chris Carter victory earlier in the year! A well needed positive result for the you and coming rider!

Craig Houston was also at the in action at the Wainwright and also had a very strong result! Finishing 8th overall and 6th in the S3 class with 2 great lap scores! Dropping 32 marks he was only 12 marks off a podium finish!


Tom – ‘ I really glad to get the win and it’s a result I feel I deserve and also needed for my confidence. I happy I didn’t let my early 5 get to me and spoil the rest of my first lap! After a couple tough BTC rounds I hope to continue this good riding forward! In the heat it was a very challenging day and I have to give credit to my bike it never faulted all day!’


Craig – ‘ I’m more the happy with my riding and my result. A good and enjoyable day. The trial was spot on so thanks to the organisers. Well done to mincer for a great win!’


Nigel Birkett – ‘ So So pleased for Tom, he really needed a positive result. Both of us know what he is capable of and he really seem to show this and national trials! I fantastic result for Tom and great to see the scorpa at the top of the results! Top job by Craig well done mate! I’ll leave it there as my beers getting warm haha’
