In the under 12s race, Kieran Vanhoutte finished 12th, leaving him 10th overall with one race to go.

Neil Bowman recorded his best result of the season with a 32rd-placed finish in the veterans race, but some aggressive riding in the opening lap forced Ferenc Vanhoutte to cross in 49th spot.

In the grand veterans category, Martin Holland ended his post-Christmas dip in form by earning a respectable 45th position.
