Gruyere, 19th August 2017 – GSR

Racing at Gruyere on Saturday began with a minute’s silence and then a neutral lap in honour of Paul Semmens. As reported last week, Paul died after an accident while racing at the Victorian Masters Road Race Championships the previous Sunday. A good contingent of Eastern members attended his funeral last Friday. Adam Dymond has more to say about this in this week’s newsletter. It was cold and showery when we arrived at Gruyere, but conditions improved as the afternoon wore on. There’s a crop of reports inside.

Jindivick, 12th August 2017 – GSR

A new circuit, by all accounts tough but good – reports from A through D all praise the circuit and paint a picture of the day’s proceedings.  Most grades finishing as a strung out reduced group with B-grade the closest, ending in a four way sort-of-sprint.

Casey Fields, 5th August 2017 – GSR

Not so windy, a few more starters, still races of attrition.  The shortened circuit meant less time into the wind but many still found it an hour too far, read the accounts of the survivors in this week’s newsletter.

Casey Fields, 29th July 2017 – GSR

This week Casey outdid itself.  A committed one-and-a-half score braved the conditions for some hard racing made more interesting with the addition of a couple of sheep who slipped through the fence mid-race.  Reports from three grades and some great images from Mark Edwards pretty much sum up the day – enjoy.
