ETHAN Vernon, Matthew Harris, and Loui Foreman raced to success on Sunday, with the pair both taking wins as the Royston Rockets took on the best from around the country in the third round of the East Anglian Winter Series.

Foreman started the proceedings in style when he claimed first place in the under-seven Formula 5 B final, with teammate Marmaduke Birt finishing fourth in the A final.

The club had six riders vying for ­positions in the under-10 Formula 4 finals, with Zak Foreman and Daniel Blanche finishing fourth and eighth respectively in the A final, while in the B final Matthew Harris took the win with Josh Peters coming in fourth just ahead of James King and Ted Dalleywater, who ­finished fifth and seventh.

Ethan Vernon then deservedly secured the club's third win in the under-13 Formula 3 final, while in the under-16 Formula 2 A final James Handleigh finished sixth, with Louis Burton claiming fourth spot in the B final.

In the final race of the day, James ­Dalleywater took seventh place in the over 17 Formula 1 A final while Darren ­Foreman finished sixth in the B final.

# The Rockets will return to action on Sunday, February 17, when they make the trip to Braintree.
