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.
