With previous rounds having been affected by the pandemic, round five effectively only takes competitors towards the midway point in this year’s championship and again many local competitors are in with a shout of both silverware and high positions in the championship tables.

Those taking part on Sunday will include Chesterfield’s Freddy Oakley will race in the Junior B Championship where he currently lies second, while David Bradley (Matlock) has a seven point advantage over rival Martin Powell (Telford) in the Classic and Forgotten Era 501cc-1300cc Championship.

The 2019 Champion Mark Brailsford (Chesterfield) is currently third in the Honda CB500/Suzuki Bandit Championship and with no entry received from either rider above him, has a chance of getting back to the top of the standings.
