Six rounds up and down the country, twelve races and two champions.  But everybody in the series, not just the winners, performed extremely well.  The level of competition was  keen, very keen at times. By common consent it was entertaining and  there was a noticeable improvement in the riding standard of a number of riders. 
The 2019 programme will be decided at the AMCA AGM in November.  And I am hoping to arrange the presentation of the 2018 awards (down to 6th place) at the Telford Classic Off-Road Show in February.
