Well done to all who took part. Another good night of fast racing. With the scratch-group just failing to catch all the early starters it was a night for ‘veteran’ sprinter Gerry Harte to roll back the years and show a clean pair of heels.! Thanks to all who helped out with sign-on and marshaling. See you all again next week.
