Congratulations to Alan Shrimpton and David Bell for an excellent win round the North Norfolk lanes with a few whites thrown in to make life more interesting.
Some thought one of the whites was a bit rough but it was cautioned and this being Derek and my first event for the club done at short notice there were bound to be a few teething problems ,but generally I hope it was enjoyed.
Starting at the Railway Inn , Docking the 50 mile route went via Fring, Shernborne, Anmer, Houghton, West Rudham, Helhoughton, Broomsthorpe, Doughton, Dunton, West Barsham, North Barsham, Burnham Thorpe, North Creake, Stanhoe to the finish back in Docking. Thanks to Mathew at The Railway Inn for providing an excellent hot supper for all the competitors and marshals , just what was needed after a cold December night. Thanks to Steve Tilburn from Hylton Gott for subsidising the meal and for bringing 2 crews out to Marshal.
Thanks to all the marshals who were all in place thanks to guidance from Dave Pollard. Dave Sooley and Jasmin Congreve also did closing car duties.
