Hethersett Hawks/Myhill Decorators staged the East Anglian Championships at the Memorial Playing Field.

Although entrants were lower than expected, some excellent racing took place, no more so than in the senior event which also provided Hethersett with their only success.

Dan Chambers and Olly Buxton were involved in a three-way tie for third place so a race-off was required. It took two restarts before Buxton finally held off his team-mate and Ipswich's Pierce Bacon to take the chequered flag.

The senior event was won by Great Blakenham's Lewis Osbrone but all the other six East Anglian champions came from Kesgrave - Luca Woodhouse (Under-8), Charlie Parr (Under-10) Aaron Robb (Under-13), Lewis Brinkhoff (Under-16 and Undere-19) and Gary Brown (veteran).

Hethersett travel to Horspath (Oxford) on Bank Holiday Monday to contest the British Senior Club Championship.
