LEE DUNHAM produced another classy and typically consistent performance to bag overall victory in round four of the 2013 AMCA British Championship at Condover, writes Mike Wood.
The Maxxis Kawasaki rider from Wotton-under-Edge has now increased his advantage at the top of the standings to a healthy 117 points.
In a very well prepared Condover track, Dunham produced a flying lap to head qualifying until the last lap where Luke Meredith posted a time three seconds faster.
In moto one Dunham blasted his 450cc Maxxis Kawasaki to a healthy holeshot and controlled proceedings just about all the way despite a serious challenge from Clinton Barrs and the early close attention of Scott Bates.
Dunham smoothly took the race one victory with Bates in second and Barrs third. Producing another fast start, Dunham was again the quickest rider away in moto two before eventually settling for fourth behind Adam Cook, Elliot Barrs and Luke Meredith.
With the track conditions changing all of the time for the worse it was a very controlled ride to put some big consistent points on the board.
Making it a hat-trick of holeshots, Dunham led the moto three charge before eventually getting home in a safe second spot behind winner Meredith.
Dunham said: “I’m extremely pleased with today. “The circuit was very difficult and easy to make mistakes.
“I was using a 2014 Kawasaki and some new dual compound Maxxis Tyres and the combination worked perfectly.
“I feel really confident with my setup and I’m looking forward to the next round at Long Lane.”
