Competing on his Beta MY23 RR 300 Racing, Ruben came away in 2nd place on Saturday’s 1hr Special Test, just 2 seconds behind the race leader.

Race day saw great weather and track conditions and with a great start and a strong performance throughout the race, Ruben took out 1st place to win R1 of the AHEC.

“The bike felt great with plenty of grip and the track was in great condition. Following some good battles on Saturday, I finished in 2nd place allowing me a good starting position for race day.With a good start on Sunday, I was able to make a pass for 1st place on the first gold section (Fig Tree Hill) and kept going strong through to the finish line. It was great to walk away with the win and I’m looking forward to the next race” – Ruben Chadwick
