ALLISON TROPHY, CHORLEY, MARCH 4
Roy Gunnett reports:
We had an excellent turnout of 19 for this event – including guests from as far north as Glasgow and as far south as Brighton.
The weather had calmed down somewhat following storm Doris on Thursday.
Adrian and Bill McFadden had a close battle for most of the race until near the end when Bill pulled away strongly to win. Glyn just piped Dan to take third place.
Irene had a great race and easily won the Allison Trophy handicap prize .
We were all delighted to see John and Jane Pouncy returning to competition following the motorcycle accident they had last year.
