With rain forecast, the race was actually run under overcast skies with only the odd shower on isolated parts of the circuit. A first lap scare of traffic lights appearing on the circuit was soon sorted out by experienced West Midland Commissaire Mike Jackson, who offered what we were led to believe as an “admin charge” for the two workmen to manage the traffic lights for the following two laps.

Back to the racing, early exchanges came to nothing with plenty of riders keen to get a break working. The “corrigated” & “grippy” nature of this well established circuit took its toll on many riders with the main group shrinking in size during the three laps.

On the last lap, a group formed which remained together up the climb of Bromley Bank to contest the finish. Tom Leach, Gloucester City CC edged out 2013 winner Joe Atkins, Coventry RC by about a bike length. The podium was completed by Sam Deighton Halesowen A & CC.
