Joseph Carey was in great form for Phantoms.

Leading the way once again was the club’s ‘pocket rocket’ George Fox in the Male 7yrs category.

After a crash in practice he dusted himself down and didn’t drop a lap all day to increase his grip on the number one spot in the overall rankings with three rounds remaining.

He took the honours in all three of his motos (heats) before storming to an emphatic victory in the A final.

Clubmate Joseph Carey, aged 12, was another A final winner riding up an age group in the Male 13/14yrs.

On his way to the final he had moto placings of first, second and third.

Carey is also in pole position in the overall standings.

Brothers Liam and Daniel Arnett were two more final winners.

Liam dominated the Male 9yrs group with two seconds and a first in his motos before taking the A final honours while Daniel won the Male 14yrs B final after two fourths and a fifth in his heats.

Liam leads his age group overall while Daniel is lying in second place.

Completing the Phantoms run of final successes was Bethany Campbell, who raced against the boys in the Male 16yrs field and won the B final.

Elsewhere for Phantoms, Luca Smith made his first A final in the Male 8yrs alongside clubmate Leo Hornan while Bradley Goulding, Alfie Thompson and Jazz Newton all made the A final in the Male 10yrs group.

Round five will be hosted by Ipswich on July 8.
