Chesterfield motorcycle race ace Anthony Porter looks on course for two titles as the Darley Moor Motorcycle Road Race Championship enters its second-half of the season on Sunday.

Porter is leading both the Formula Darley and Mini Sound of Thunder classes by a healthy margin.

His Formula Darley challengers are Chris Spooner, from Stoke on Trent, and Gary Dangerfield, from Stonnall, 36 and 38 points behind and looking for a change in fortune.

Dangerfield is also his nearest rival in the Mini Sound of Thunder class, by a smaller margin of 26 points, with Alex Woodhouse (Chesterfield) a further 15 points back

in third place.

There will be a full programme of racing at the Darley Moor circuit and there will also be four-wheeled action with two races for the Long Circuit Racing Kart Club competitors.

Practice begins at 10am with the first race expected at 11.30am.

Entrance admission for adults is £11, senior citizens £6, children U16 free, parking and paddock transfer free, with programmes £3.
