Norfolk quad racer Tyler Soar suffered mixed fortunes in his third outing at the North East ACU quad cross championships held at Wooley Grange County Durham.

The goggle gremlins struck again in race one where after two laps he had a stone smash his roll off mechanism and had to remove them and ride the majority of the race with no eye protection as the mud had obscured his vision.

He battled on despite having to contend with the mud and stones being sprayed at him and his vision seriously impaired to finish the race in 16th place.

Soar had to start race two from the back row due to his placing in the first race but this did not stop him showing the skill and smooth riding that is his trade mark.
