Venue: ATV Centre, Blackwater, 8 November (Remembrance Sunday). Race start time was 11.02am.

Despite very poor weather causing the race time to be reduced, all the teams that had pledged their support competed in the grueling non-stop two hour event.

The teams who completed the most laps, in a very close run race, took pride of place on the podium to receive their awards from Rtn. Ray Harris, President of the Club.  Results were as follows:

Partridge team 1          - First
