Making his debut ride in the Husqvarna ACU British Sprint Enduro Championship at the penultimate round of the series, Finland's Matti Seistola wasted little time in adapting to the sprint enduro format. After a couple of crashes during the early morning special tests, Seistola soon began to find his pace on the sandy based motocross. Setting the fastest time in the final four special tests of the day, he secured a comfortable win.

Chasing him home for second, TM's Jordan Rose clinched the Elite championship. After a difficult start to the day, which saw Rose make a costly mistake when a stone derailed his chain, the TM rider worked hard to recover from fifth place on lap on. Remaining mistake free during the final few laps, Rose overhauled KTM's Tom Church to finish second and with it claim the championship. After a tight battle with Daryl Bolter (KTM), Church eventually ended his day third.
Gas Gas' Danny McCanney wrapped up the Under 23 championship with victory at round nine. Trailing initial pace setter Alex Rockwell (Husaberg) by seven seconds at the end of lap one, McCanney took control of proceedings at the end of lap three to grab his fifth win of 2012. Unable to consistently match the pace of his Manx neighbour, Rockwell had to settle for second place. Husqvarna's Jack Rowland rounded out the top three.

In Under 19 KTM's Steve Holcombe had a mixed start to his day. With his rear brake becoming jammed during lap two, Holcombe fell down the running order. Battling hard to overcome his error, Holcombe capitalised on crash by initial leader Kawasaki's Joe Wootton to claim his ninth win of the series. With Wootton crashing hard, Husqvarna's Robert Johnson sneaked through to claim his best finish of the season as runner up to Holcombe. James Dent (KTM) finished strongly to place third.
Husaberg's Jamie McCanney returned from his early season injury to win the 125 Youth Cup. Setting the fastest time in all but one of the special tests, McCanney made a winning return to the series. KTM's Brad Freeman continued to impress in the 125 Youth Cup as he chased the Husaberg rider home for second. Josh Gotts (TM) placed third.

In Experts, Husaberg's Tyson Maytom Jones looked all but assured of victory until a technical problem with his bike ruled him out of contention. Taking advantage of the situation, KTM's Richard Ely worked his way from fourth on lap one to take the win. Finishing only eight seconds behind Ely at the end of almost 80 minutes of special test racing, Oliver Hart (KTM) placed second. Honda's James Jackman ended his day third just eight seconds behind Hart.
