With the Canadian Speedway Championship race just a week away, the
opportunity to group all divisions for some great racing proved a good
choice for the riders and crowd alike.

Eight riders competed on the night, Mike Hammond, Aaron Hesmer, Glen
Brown, Gary Moody, Alan Chisholm, Terry Rideout, John Bennett and
Tommy Hensby.

Heat 1:
Aaron Hesmer gated well with Glen Brown, Brown pushed him hard for two laps before Hesmer took off to take the win, however, Brown had to contend on holding back a hard charging Terry Rideout to keep second place as Rideout just missed out at the line. Gary Moody suffered a disastrous first heat as his rear tire went flat causing him to DNF.

Heat 2:
Tommy Hensby and Mike Hammond gated hard with Hammond getting the edge coming into turn two, and led Hensby by just two bike lengths all 4 laps. John Bennett and Alan Chisholm enjoyed their own race behind, with Bennett coming out the winner of this battle to secure third

Heat 3:
A rocket start from Tommy Hensby led a three man deep first corner, as
Aaron Hesmer and Terry Rideout maneuvered inside Hensby, Rideout who was being pushed hard by Hensby as he chased Hesmer, unfortunately slid out on lap two on corner 4, which left Hensby to chase Hesmer to the line. Alan CHisholm couldn't believe his luck as Rideout was out of the race, and set about chasing Hensby hard, a great effort by all the riders.

Heat 4:
Mike Hammond led from the tapes, with John Bennett grabbing a valuable second place, as Glen Brown and Gary Moody both suffered mechanical problems and were forced out on lap 2.

Consi Final:
Terry Rideout secured the win ahead of Gary Moody on a borrowed bike
from GT Tuning Canada, with Alan Chisholm pushing Moody for final place.

Main Final:
The tapes flew in the main final with Tommy Hensby in gate 5 leading
into the first bend, he went wide leaving a gap for Mike Hammond,
Aaron Hesmer and Glen Brown to get by, Hensby closed the door however on John Bennett to keep him behind him, Mike Hammond pulled out a good lead ahead of Hesmer leaving a great battle to ensue for the third spot, Tommy Hensby hunted Glen Brown getting closer and closer, and the run to the line saw Brown secure the third spot by just half a
wheel. Superb racing.

Based upon the night's events, the Speedway Championship next weekend will be a cracker...
