Ingleton’s Harley Rushton had a busy weekend at the latest round of the Classic Racing Motorcycle Championship at Cadwell Park, Lincolnshire.

On Saturday Rushton won the second of four 350 races, finishing second behind the experienced Alan Oversby in the other three.

Finishes of fifth and second in the two 500 races then placed him third overall as he picked up a medal for Saturday’s racing.

The following day fourth and fifth places in two further 500 races, fifth in the ACU 500 national race and fifth in the open class race made for a solid weekend.

He said: “My results this weekend were consistent and I finally got some good solid finishes which is what I needed to try and keep my championship fight going.

“I’m not sure if I have done enough yet to retain my title but nether the less I am looking forward to the next round at Snetterton in October.”
