As the Road Race season presses on into the Autumn period, the Andy Moore Autocentres Racing Team made the long journey to the picturesque Lancaster University Circuit on the Lancashire coastline.

A well supported event, the first of a four race series proved to be a high paced competition, with the four strong team of Jono Dexter, Adam Turner, Andy Bishop and Calum Lawson all working to maintain the teams impressive run of recent form.

The circuit proved challenging in places with the damp and greasy corners requiring respect.

Turner played a key role in managing the peloton to enable his team mates to produce the end result.

Dexter was well protected throughout, and it was Bishop who raised the pace on several occasions during the race in an attempt to tempt the field into a response.

Dexter maintained his cool and, on the final few laps, his team mates turned up the speed and formed an impressive lead out to launch him to the final sprint.

Dexter finished in a fine second place, with his team mates in the following group having done their work for the day.

Team manager Andy Moore said: “It’s our first outing to the Lancaster Circuit, and it’s a superb venue.

“The lads worked together to get Jono the result, and despite the slippery conditions kept the bikes upright.

“Andy Bishop and Adam did a great job in driving the pace to keep the race as we wanted it, and it was great to see Jono heading back to good form with a solid sprint to take a well deserved second place.

“We’re looking forward to racing here again, it’s been a thoroughly well organized and enjoyable day out.”
