Another successful weekend’s racing for SRVC on their home circuit at Laughton. Carl Farrell took the win, his second on this circuit (fourth on this circuit for the club), in the 3/4 event with James Watkin sprinting for 5th. Ably supported by Andy Larking and Graham Winstanley, Farrell regains his 2nd category licence. Charlie Deacon pulled out after half a lap due to illness. The race ended in a bunch sprint with any break attempts not sticking.
Later in the 2/3 event, Eric DeGolier, Chris Hewitt, Gavin Jones and Joe Hill were forcing for a break. Unfortunately nothing could catch the solo winner who put a couple of minutes between himself and the pack. Joe Hill impressively came back from a mechanical to catch back on and take 10th place.
Many more races will take place for SRVC at Laughton this summer so watch this space.
