Our two highest awards were:
The majority stayed to enjoy the band, with a few still celebrating well after close.
Our IRB team have been working hard in their first Season back to racing, with already a few good results. A special thanks to Alex Ayscough for championing it.
Remember to get your renewal in while Early Bird fees are still on!
