This was a race of attrition. Three class A bikes didn’t start, including Carl Marsden, and another fell on oil dropped by one of the supermotards (aka super-retards) in class C. They aren’t doing much to endear themselves. Several class B bikes also crashed at various places.
In the restarted five-lap race I was careful over the cement dust spread on the oil and pushed a bit around the rest of the lap. It was enough to win by 13s.
Congratulations to Lee Hardy for another gutsy ride through the pain to take his best ever result of second, and Mick Riddle for bagging third.
In the Bs, Mark Lumb got his first ever trophy for third place, a deserved reward for all his determination. Barry Utting made it seven wins out of seven and looks like the runaway favourite.
