Well that’s it for another year, the (Virtual) Winter Handicap is complete, our champion is Kay Wilson who pipped Anthony Wilton right at the very end following a week blighted by Beast from the East 2. For #5 race our winner was Marc Stubbs who managed to get out before the ice and snow, he was followed home by Gillian Ritchie and Malcolm Cox. Fastest time of the event was once again John Halligan with Gillian our fastest lady. Well done to everyone who took part across the 5 months, I hope that it provided some form of competition and that we’ll be back to the real thing in October. Full results are here.
