The 2016 SMC season finally got underway recently at Badby, where NMCC were also joined by the NGR Series. Despite some rough weather right up until the Sunday, the rain stayed away on race day. After some fantastic efforts from the land owner to get the large entry towed up to the pits, the meeting begun with the hillside track slippery and wet. As the day progressed however it dried nicely, forming big challenging ruts in the corners and providing some great racing.

In the Expert class Shaun Southgate showed class and speed in the tough conditions to take overall victory. He didnít have it all his own way though as Ben Putnam raced chased him down and took the win in race two, a dnf in the final leg keeping him out of the overall. Ryan Hammond got faster as conditions dried to take the final podium position with a good second place in the final race.

Scott Bates dominated both Junior A finals , winning both times out by more than half a lap. James Cobby had a fine ride to take two clear second places, from Mitchell Bates in third. Mark Jarvis won the Junior B group after winning the final race from Aaron Read. Race one victor Max Nethaway took third overall after a bad start in race two.

Aaron Hopkins won both of the first two legs in the NGR class but a bad start in race three put his overall in jeopardy. By the finish he had recovered to fifth which was enough for the overall. Paul Hubbard and Stephen Atkins fought closely for second and third each time, Paul just edging out Stephen by a couple of points for second overall.

Tony Leishman once again took the overall in the Premier class as he began the defence of his twenty-seventh title in this age group.  Ryan Griffiths won races two and three but dnfíd race one after unsuccessfully attempting to run his Honda on diesel. Adam Collins improved his finishes as the day went on to finish second overall by a single point from Cliff Lester. The Elite class  overall went to Simon Wyse with three classy wins. Greg Cox rode hard and fast for second each time out. Fraser Law somehow salvaged third overall despite going from first to last in the final race after a stupid crash on lap one.

Nigel Miller and Reg Willis once again fought closely and traded wins in the Super class. Nigel took the overall by only a couple of points, Reg getting faster as the track dried. Richard Jochacy finished third overall, not far behind the leaders.

With the U40 and 2 stroke classes running together itís not always easy to predict the results with some riders eligible for one or the other, some both. Also with some of the Expert riders using this class for an occasional warm up ride things are never clear. In the end it was Connor Dickens who emerged as the winner of the Under 40 class, from Ian Teverson and Max Nethaway. Tony Leishman proved once again that when it comes to 2 strokes heís a force to be reckoned with, edging out Ian and Max in the smokers division.
