Imperial Winter Series Race 2 - Saturday 10th December

A bright sunny day with a much lighter wind than last week but also a lot cooler at 6ºC.  I felt a bit more comfortable in the bunch this week only at the back on the occasions that the pace picked right up.  We passed the 4ths(or most of them) a couple of times today but on their penultimate lap, half a dozen or so of them passed us at the finish of their race, whilst at the same time they were lapping a substantial part of their own field.  We slowed to let them past and once their race finished the attacks in ours began.  Once again a small group got away n the final laps – Lucy’s report will have far more detail than I was able to observe.  At the bell I was at the back of the field and happy to stay there until we crossed the line.
Unhappily there was a crash in the 4th cat race, on the bend just before the clubhouse, and as I left the circuit two ambulances were there.  I hope those involved were not badly injured and recover soon.
Stats: 1h04m at av 24.9mph.  Max 30mph.
