JAMIE Medhurst can clinch the Curtis Milner Trophy as the Darley Moor club motorcycle championships reach the halfway point this weekend with a two-day meeting.

The Long Eaton man won both Formula 600 races last time out and can clinch the trophy, named after a young racer who started his career at the Ashbourne circuit but lost his life in a road accident, on Sunday.

Plenty of other local riders will be in action, notably Jamie Pearson, who is the man to beat in the Pre-Injection 600 Championships, having won all the races so far.

His brother, Shane, is one of the frontrunners in Pre98 big bike class.

After a win in the Steel-framed 600 category, another Derby man, Lloyd Harrison is looking to close the gap on points leader Jake Hingley.

Gordon Thorpe is unbeaten in the Classic 500 class, while fellow Matlock man Gary Henrikson will battle for honours in the Sound of Thunder Championship.

On Saturday, spectators also have the chance to experience the thrill of being a passenger on a racing sidecar.

The club are raising money for the ACU Benevolent fund and people wearing suitable protective clothing can sit in the chair next to some of the regular Darley drivers, for a donation.

Racing is due to start at 11.30am both days.
