A terrific gesture from the IOW promotion - I hope a good number can take advantage of it.

Fantastically generous offer by the IOW promotion leading the way once again. 

On track Kinsley, Rowe & Jenkins "should" comfortably progress but certainly interesting to see how close Palin & Spooner will get. Fingers crossed for a good nights racing and hope all riders complete every ride for the deserving public.

Slightly strung out at times due to a bit of a gulf in ability, but some good racing was produced. Highlight being a big outside pass by Ablitt on Ruddick going down the back straight and round bends 3 and 4. Ruddick himself highly unfortunate to have mechanical gremlins on the last lap of the semi final when in 1st place

As always welcome first class, kids interaction first class, adult interaction yep you guessed it first class. Food pukka as always.

Note to self though, if you gonna run half the kids race to film your daughter running round make sure you press record not photo.........

Credit to all riders for putting on a show. Always likely to be a little strung out in places with only 4 riders of current NL heat leader or higher status but some excellent performances by the next generation of Palin & Ablitt. Im sure all the others benefited from the experience of the event.
