Results for final race are here.
A disappointing turnout of 42 runners for the last race despite a pleasant enough evening, albeit a bit breezy on the tops. Obviously this helped Andrew who, in his first race for a few years, ‘breezed’ to a win by over two and a half minutes. Not that this mattered, as tonight was really about who won the championship. Jill was second in the race with a much improved time but the big winner was Shelley Gill who can claim the winter handicap championship. Second place goes to Sue Hall and third to Simon Pike. All the qualifying runners are in bold on the results. Times in general were down due to the wind but yet again Alan Knox was consistent enough to take 3rd place in the WMA on the night and first place overall. 2nd in WMA was Richard Mackie and 3rd was Matt Robinson. They will be joined as trophy winners by Laura Gill and Damian Kilpin as fastest lady and man. Congratulations to everyone. A great series blessed by good weather and many thanks to the helpers. Martyn, Janet in particular and Paul for the excellent results service. It might seem a long way off but it will be no time at all before it all begins again. Enjoy the summer and don’t forget it’s the Winter (Christmas) Handicap (the other one) this coming Sunday. Details here.
