Just for the statisticians out there… some marked improvements from last nights GP5 race results over our GP4 race held 4 weeks ago.
Biggest shout must be for Marc Fenwick for setting a NEW course record and beating his GP4 time by 6secs to finish in an mightily impressive 10:20 Well Done Mark!
Greatness aside by far and away the most improved time was for Catherine Smith who shaved over a minute off her GP4 time (14:29 v 15:31)
Cat Willis finished 29secs quicker (13:20 v 13:49)
Colin White -27secs (17:23 v 17:50)

Both Kerry Reed & Gary Wright bettered by 20secs (14:39 v 14:59) & (12:17 v 12:37) respectively.

Dave Appleby -15secs (11:32 v 11:47)

Me… I sneaked home at 15:04 which was 38secs quicker. Happy TBH’r :)
