Chesterfield’s Anthony Porter was pipped to the flag in the opening round of the Darley Moor Motorcycle Road Race Championship.

Last year’s runner-up Andrew Lowe of Stone recorded a flag to flag victory ahead of Porter in the Steel Framed/Pre-Injection 600 race over the March 21-22 weekend.

While the result may have been the same in the second race it was definitely a totally different race with Porter closing in on Lowe and finally passing him on lap five, only to have the lead snatched back on the final lap.

The top three were separated by just 0.75 seconds at the flag.
