Sprint, Sunday 21 March 2016
A cool but dry day greeted Dennis Williams,
Robin Baxter and Mike Wood at the first event of the year, a sprint at

The organisers gave us a clearer run
through on second practice and helped us even more for the timed runs in the
afternoon. Although niggles still persisted, times were to fall significantly
and we each enjoyed the day.
Thanks must go to BARC Midland Centre for a
good event and adjusting the assembly arrangements to fit in with our quirks.
A fuller report will appear in The 500.
