Hi All

Only 6 starters for this 'once was a classic' race so a little sad as it will be the last ADC held at this iconic raceway.

Qualifying

A big separation in pace from thew top 3 and the remainder with me keeping my job.

Good to see Steve King back for this one after a year lay-off and showed a little rust early on but had a race long battle with Stoo. Stoo took the flag ultimately by opening up a break when Steve hit Black.

Andrew had a miserable day of it early on being plagued by a loose rear wheel and a grub screw that would not tighten but once sorted ha posted a good final three brackets.

An all the way win here for me being chased by Troy who in turn was chased by Darryl.

A big thank you to James for sponsoring the race and this class of racing especially given the low turn-out over the past year. Also a big thanks to Gregg Erskine for helping again as a marshall.

Cheers
Regards - Mark 8-)
