There was a whole load of goodies donated by DCR, RaceFX, Staystrong, N_Fuse sports & Nutrition, Apico factory racing and Leatt. These donations made goodie bags for the top 3 riders in all the A finals.
A huge thank you to DCR & Dylan Clayton at Hardknox for organising the donations and support on the day with the presentations.
The local constabulary dropped in for a COVID spot check and were over the moon to find the club had ticked all the boxes with risk assessments, track and trace & maintaining socially distanced pods for riders and spectators. They were really surprised with how well organised the event was.
A total of 110 riders attended which made for some great racing, with 2 semi-finals in 2 categories.
On a whole the event ran smoothly but this couldn’t happen without the planning and commitment from our committee and volunteers. We are pleased that as a club have got the kids and big kids 😉 racing again!
