CRMC MALLORY PARK
In these crazy Covid times we've missed going classic racing – but the CRMC calendar is now back on track. The first outing was at Mallory Park and Graham Lawlor and Pete Morris were on the spot to see all the drama unfold.
May saw the cobwebs blown away for the regular runners and riders in our beloved Classic Racing Motorcycle Club: but who won what?
After more than eight months of enforced inaction the Classic Racing Motorcycle Club returned to Mallory Park over the weekend of May 8/9 with a large entry and high confidence of a full weekend of racing.
Saturday was wet and cold but nevertheless produced some cracking racing, so Sunday's near ideal conditions meant that the paddock was buzzing with expectation as the 09.30 start time arrived.
However, it quickly became apparent that Mallory's noise monitoring equipment was recording high levels, exacerbated by an unfavourable wind direction, leading to numerous delays and interruptions to the programme. Heroic efforts by officials, particularly the noise testers, eventually meant that a revised race management process was established with each machine being tested immediately prior to every race. This allowed the majority of Sunday's race programme to be completed and, indeed, produced some truly spectacular action.
