WCRA champs rained off

Well, as we all turned out for the WCRA champs at Welwyn on Saturday we really did have the stars in our midst. Sarah Bailey, Victoria Pendleton and Janet Birkmyre, to name a few, warmed up in the brillant sunshine which we saw during the morning.

But sunshine turned to rain and after two events the racing was brought to a close. It was great to see such support for the WCRA and some impressive times for the 500 TT and the Pursuit, here’s the results and a few pics…
