The first ever GDW night race was a great success, a big thankyou to Vince for organising everything and to all the marshals and timekeepers who turned out.
It was a perfect night for it, warm and the recent dry weather made the going a lot easier than it will surely be for the rest of the series. First blood went to Andy Parsons, covering 5 laps in the one hour race to take the win ahead of Vince Hounsome in second and Josh Day, who had a couple of spills on his way to third. Henry Harris rode well to take fourth ahead of Julian Chown. Jerry Cooper, James Chant and Ashley Martin were the only other riders to finish on the lead lap.
Full results to follow. Also, there should be some photos of the race as well, thanks to Charles Rees who blinded the riders every lap with his camera equipment (insert your own ‘Charles flashing in the woods joke here)
