Southwards Race Series – Race 5 Results

Despite the blustery conditions race 5 in the criterium series once again proved to be a hard-fought battle in both events.

The first race included the return of three Kruzers eager to compete in event one. Good to see you. John R, John P, Chris Money, Lisa Horn and Steve Parrish all took turns in driving the bunch ever faster over the 25 minutes and two lap race. The final placing saw Lisa pipping John Pratt by centimetres with John Rawlinson taking out third place.

Event 2:

The second event over 30 minutes and 2 laps was bound to be a torrid affair with the big hitters taking to the start line. Immediately Lee Pownall attacked closely followed by Cam Jones, a furious chase brought them back before a number of attacks spread the field out. Leon Goodwin established a strong lead over several laps before the bunch reacted and reeled him in. It was now time for Mike Proudfoot to stamp his mark on the race. A determined attack soon saw him pull away from what proved to be a convincing win. Katie Richards chased gamely to secure second over Peter Wilkinson.
