2022 Polaris British SXS Racing Championship RD5 PAR HOMES


Weather Impossible Last weekend saw the return of one of the best UK venues for SXS Racing and it was one everyone was looking forward to. The build-up was unusual for a track in Wales as the ground was baked solid after a week of extreme hot weather. That said, the forecast wasn’t great and the decisions regarding watering the track were difficult. A good downpour on Friday helped us out and the track was ready. It was time to hand over to the drivers. We were go for qualifying. Open Class Qualifying The conditions were perfect for what was set up to be cracker. Sean Haran flew out the blocks after a return from injury and battled most of the session with rivals McCann and Severn. Lap ten is when the pole lap came, and it was Sean Haran on front of the grid. Paul Severn wasn’t far off and certainly looked to enjoy the battle taking second place ahead of Mark McCann in third. Sean Jenkinson took fourth place setting an all-expert top four and a great first corner of race one. Louis McGuffog was next [...]

2022 Polaris British SXS Racing Championship RD4


What Goes Up, Must Come Down Last weekend saw the Polaris British SXS Championship head to the Lakes in what was to be a challenging weekend. Changing weather meant the event team hand to move things around to get everything done in drivable conditions so that is what they did. Delayed slightly but the stage was set. Open Class Qualifying The session seemed to flow the way most would expect. Mark McCann took pole for the experts followed in by championship leader Paul Severn setting up a battle into the first corner, which many had hoped for. Third place went to Louis McGuffog settling quickly into his new RS1 followed by Shaun Jenkinson in fourth. Tom Welbourn again chipped away at his lap time in a mature drive to fifth ahead of Adrian / Callum Loveridge in sixth spot. Jess Braker was the next car over the line in an off colour seventh for the flying youngster. Could she improve as the day progressed? Eighth place was taken by Olly McGuffog in another solid session for the first-year rookie. Rianna Harris and Jeremy Levick closed off the back [...]

2022 Polaris British SXS Racing Championship RD3


Round 3 Duns Excitement was high for the big trip north and those who travelled were rewarded with a cracker. Close racing across all classes on a real top-class track that rewarded many and punished a few. Open class were the first to take to the track so let’s see what went down. Open Class Qualifying This session was an interesting one as everyone looked to see if the big power pros could get their power down, or if the small power cars could benefit from the track changes. The answer wasn’t really a surprise as Mark McCann put his pro firmly on the top spot with a blinding lap time that nobody could touch. Next in was Shaun Jenkinson ahead of the other championship contenders Sean Haran and Paul Severn. The lap times did tell a story as the gap was unusually big as some adjusted quicker than others to the new reversed track. Next in was the battle of the fastest rookies led by Tom Welbourn on the same second as the expert in fourth spot. Jess Barker pushed hard to keep up but fell just [...]

2022 Polaris British SXS Championship Youth RD1


Every year there is excitement around the Youth Class and this year was no different. Lots of movement in and out of the class meant nobody could be sure of who would come out on top. The track prep went well and the entries where in. Its time to go racing. Qualifying The early speed was with Fred Tarrant as he threw down a lap time that nobody could match. It seems right that Fred would be front of the pack, but could he stay consistent enough to win the day. Next up in second place was the first of the McGuffog brothers with Harley setting a solid time to beat Jack barker into third. Next in grabbing fourth place was Jude Scotney who certainly seems to have grown in confidence in the winter which is great to see. Newcomer Ella Hales crossed the line in fifth spot keeping the Hales name strong in the Youth Class no doubt with some advice and support from Champion brother George. Sophie Bird stepped up to sixth with Lenny McGuffog just one second behind in seventh. Newcomers Olly Hedges and Blake [...]

2022 Polaris British SXS Racing Championship RD1


Sunshine & Snow Last weekend marked the start of the 2022 race season and what a start it was. Neuadd farm MX was the venue and as a long-term driver favourite track the event was setting up nicely. The weather in the build-up was unpredictable to say the least and the track team seen all four seasons in one day on more than one occasion. Severe frost and snow on the Friday did see some concern but the sunshine soon dealt with that. The track was ready the entries were strong, and it was time to go racing. Open Class Qualifying The Open class is growing nicely, and the addition of some new faces has mixed things up nicely. Current Champion Mark McCann started strong using his experience of the machine to take pole position in the first session of the year. Second spot went to Sean Haran in the first outing of his Polaris Pro Xp. The gap between first and second was set at only five tenths of a second so we looked set for a great battle at the front. Paul Severn was the next [...]

2021 Polaris British SXS Championship RD4


Northern Ireland Round four of the Championship seen SXS travel across the water for the first event to be held in Northern Ireland. This now completes the four nations and makes the Championship truly British.  A late venue switch made the build up week a challenge but the determination of the team and our hosts the Buller family meant it was always going to be the best event it could ever be. The prep was done, all the big names were travelling so it was race time! Open Class Qualifying This session seemed to go exactly to plan for Championship leader Mark McCann. A strong lap late in the session seen him take pole and put him on the front of the grid for race one. Rookie Martin Hales took advantage of some bad luck for other experts to take second spot followed in by Adrian and Callum Loveridge. A tasty front row for sure. Wayne Harris returned from injury and appeared to be getting the hang of his RS1 taking fourth spot setting a time on par with expert Loveridge. Louis McGuffog was next home setting the [...]

Enduring Pays Off – BYC Rd1 & BEC RD1


Last weekend saw the start of the Polaris British Enduro Championship at a sunny Champs Park in Kettering. Delays had seen the start of the Championship postponed due to bad weather but this time the sun was on our side. The track prep went well and the venue benefited from a good downpour of rain after the completion of Youth racing on the Saturday. A good turnout made for some well-balanced groups and racing was a GO! Youth Racing RD1 Saturday saw the youngsters take to the track and some new faces around the paddock. The absence of the PAR Boys Alfie and Sam Davies meant that Lewis Scotney seemed a hot favourite to take an early lead in the Championship. The unknowns of Rio Longdon and Fred Tarrant both practice partners of Lewis, meant we certainly had a race on our hands. Trialling the Ace 570 at this event was Ronnie Payne, a great addition to the Championship should his coming birthday go the way we all hope. Also, a driving assessment for Jude Scotney sees the younger Scotney Brother take to the track. Qualifying Lewis [...]
