SHSC Sucess at the Southport 24hr Race

Southport2

Well it was great last year, but this year was even better. Over the 10th, 11th and 12th of September 41 equally intrepid and determined members of the Staunton Harold Race Team made their way to the remote north west coast in Lancashire to represent our club in this year's famous Southport 24 hour Race. Expectations were that they would be in for an exciting and hectic weekend in the sort of rough beer froth blowing conditions for which the race is (in)famous, and in the event they were right….with a fair bit of rain thrown in as well.

Our magnificent crews managed 10th GP1, 16th Ent (gained a place in the last lap) and 32nd GP2….way ahead of our seedings, and beating Mike's challenging target well. In addition, both GP1 and Ent won their starting flights by a margin. The 32nd by the "Fun" GP whilst starting 55th was a thick slice of icing on the cake.
