SP125/RG Racing’s Rob Guiver returned took another win after battling through from sixth place on the first lap at Silverstone in the relentless British 125GP Championship putting his championship back on track and making up for his last round disappointment.
It was Martin Glossop of KRP/Bradley Smith Racing who got the lead into the first corner while pole position rider Connor Behan of SP125/Express forklifts lost a couple of places falling back to third.
James Lodge of KRP/Earnshaws Motorcylces moved up through order and on lap two took second ahead of Behan, it was then the front three pulled away from the others. On lap three the fun began as Glossop went wide giving the lead to Lodge, he tried to hold off Behan but a couple of corners later Behan moved ahead up to second.
In the mean time Guiver had got his head down and caught up with the leading trio, a lap later his then took the first step of the podium. Glossop had moved ahead of Lodge again, but made the same error in running wide again, but eventually Guiver and Behan pushed Glossop to fourth.
After having a battle of their own it was Behan who crashed out of the race on lap seven taking the pressure off Guiver before he continued to move to the front. Lodge didn’t make it easy for him or give up and they constantly battled side by side swapping positions numerous times throughout the race.
By lap nine Glossop was starting to catch up with the leading two using the advantage of Behan’s crash and lap ten he was putting pressure on Guiver who had lost touch slightly with Lodge. It was all tables turned around again as Lodge went slightly wide giving Guiver the lead which he kept to the end.
Even though they didn’t lose too much time on Guiver the main battle was between the team mates for second, but it was Glossop who had the last say. The title chase goes to the final round where it’s the three top riders all have a chance to take it.
Brian Clark of Banks Racing/Express Racewear worked his way from seventh to finish fifth and Catherine Green picked up yet more points to finish 12th after qualifying 13th on the grid. Ian Lougher who was riding for Repli-cast finished in the points in 13th after gaining five places in the race.
