With truly awful weather over the proceeding week, things didn’t bode well for the first weekend of the extended Pursuit Racing Series. Overnight the wind had been strong and the mornings news showed tree strewn roads and heavy flooding. At the club, the lake was up and a fresh breeze gusted across leading to OOD Mark Norman keeping everyone ashore for the morning. Turn-out was low with twice as many duty crew as competitors when it came to the afternoon race, but with conditions improving the pursuit began with Harry Janes setting off on the course pursued by Chris Lawson’s Xenon and Matt & Graziano in the Buzz.
After 90 minutes, the final positions were: 1. Matt & Graziano (Buzz), 2. Harry Janes (Topper), 3. Chris Lawson & Chris Burgess (Xenon). Two more weekends are scheduled for later this year.
