A knee problem, due for an op. couldn’t stop the lure of the track for Tony, the former track & road star & new man behind Otley’s persuit of its own track. A generous handicap saw Tony take a clear win ahead of Gemma and Sara.
Scott recorded the fastest time on the night of 9.51 in 9th. The main battle of the night was between those at the top of the handicap table, with the top two Ursula and Dominic setting off together, a strong last lap from both meant they picked up lots of points in 6th and 7th.
The leading positions in the Eric Smith handicap table is now Ursula 162 pts, Dominic 146 pts and Matt Podd 137.5 pts.
Thanks for another former track star, (8.40 – 3k), Peter McGouran for lap counting & time keeping duties.
