Classic bike racer Ian Henshaw enjoyed a fantastic weekend at the Kentish circuit recently, taking six wins and a handful of podium places.

On the 250cc Cotrell Crusader, Henshaw claimed three wins out of four races. He was forced to retire while leading in the fourth due to a mechanical problem.

The results now leave him going into the final round at Cadwell Park leading the 250cc championship by 21 points.

On the Performance Classics 350cc Royal Enfield, Henshaw came second three times to current champion Graham Buller on his Manx Norton – two of which were closely contested, but in the final contest the pair were wheel to wheel until Henshaw broke away to take the win and secure second place in the 350cc championship.

In the 500cc Performance Classics, Henshaw suffered a misfiring problem in the two Saturday races which saw him managing only 4th and 5th places.

Following the disappointment, Henshaw’s team decided to race the 350cc machine in the 500cc race on Sunday. The decision ensured he secured enough points to remain in contention in the championship, with a win gifted to him when the race leader suffered mechanical issues and retired on the last lap.

The Team 3D 450cc Ducati suffered fuelling problems in the first Ducati Championship race and Henshaw managed 5th before being forced to retire on the start line in second race on the start line.

The following day – and starting from the back of the grid, Henshaw worked through the field before out braking leader Scott Harris at the Devil’s Elbow left hand corner to take the lead, winning by two seconds.

After some minor adjustments between races, Henshaw went out for the second race on the second row of the grid and took a tremendous start straight into first place, taking the win by 16 seconds.

The final round of races is at Cadwell Park, Lincolnshire, on September 23/24.
