After months of lockdown and no racing, it was great to be back at Wakefield Park for the Double Vax Graded Scratch races last Wednesday.
Windy conditions under overcast skies made for tough, hard racing and those that competed certainly blow away the cobwebs from a long winter layoff.
Cameron Roberts (A Grade) was too strong for the field that combined all grades. Jeremy Gilchrist (B Grade) was second across the line ahead of the much-improved James Quade (C Grade). James has put his time in lockdown to good use doing some secret training and it is clearly paying dividends.
Wayne Bensley finish second in B Grade followed by Jason Cook.
In C Grade Ian Wardale and Chris Berry took out the minor placings.
Peter Jackson was too strong in D Grade with Keisha Northey finishing second in a welcome return to road racing.
Next Wednesday, October 27, it's back to Wakefield Park again for a Graded Scratch Race (anticlockwise). Sign on is from 5.45pm with racing at 6.15pm. New riders welcome.
