Well done to Evan on the fastest club rider with a 1 sec PB and on taking the club Hillclimb Trophy. and to guest rider Adam Hepburn on the FTD.

This marks the last round of an extremely challenging TT points series, mainly due to weather and roadworks causing an extraordinary number of canceled rounds during this year. It's been very close championship between the 1st and 2nd places pretty much all year, only 3 riders doing the 11, or more, counting rounds. Well done to all the participating club and guest riders, your support is appreciated. Congratulations as well to all the support people, including a life member and stalwart of the club who we just lost to the TT club in the sky, who without all your help and support these events could not take place.
Feedback and suggestions for next years TT series to the club committee please, especially on how to encourage more membert support please.
