Riding an Ossa 300, Andy Blackman won the opening round of the 2014 Oxford Ixion MCC Club Championship on Sunday at Islip near Bicester.

Blackman defeated the GasGas 300 rider, Shaun Fox, in the Experts class by just two marks with Rob Warner finishing a further seven points further back with his 250cc Montesa machine.

In the Clubman division, Ali Haigh was triumphant on his Beta 250, dropping just a total of ten marks around the four-lap route that took in ten sections on each tour.

Adrian Steele (Beta) followed him home. A bumper entry of over 70 riders took part in the competition, with many Advertiser & Review region competitors in action. The Oxford Ixion season continues on Sunday, January 26, when the second round of the 2014 series takes place.
