Race Notes:

In honour and loving memory of our friend Peter Holmes.

The race track was measured at 403 meters by Trevor and his trusty trundle wheel so overall distance was 1612 meters - 3 meters more than a mile.

An "Irish" 1pm start. The race actually started closer to 2 because Graham forgot his beer and the Irish lads were pfaffing about.
