By organiser Peter Waghorn, Lewis Atkins was in good form in the senior A group notching up three victories and losing out in the final 10 mile by a tyre width – the win going to John McClelland in the fastest time of the season.

Dave Legrys opened his account with a good win in the Group B 10 lap scratch while Richard Norris now recovered from bad accident three months ago controlled the 10 lap Points race to win his first event of the year.

The two 10 lap Block Handicaps set out with the B group given a 250m lead, the B group in the Odd number race were reeled in after 5 laps by the more rapid A group – however a fighting trio, led by Simon Best, in the Even numbered race were only caught with a lap to go showing that a well organised, hard working group can hold on after a good, positive start.

The slightly reduced numbers in the three youth groups saw Sam Dossett clean up in the A series while Cameron Gutteridge was in good form in the BC group but was chased hard by series leader Mitchell Powell and Frank Longstaff.

The CDE group events were led in by Bob Longstaff
