The final meeting of the Hackney Grass Track League 2011 took place at Hackney Downs on Saturday 27th of August. The sun shone in between heavy bouts of rain long enough to allow a full program of events to take place producing some close racing once again.
The Under 8s Scratch race gets underway.
Fastest time for a flying lap went to Shaquille -22.65 secs followed by a tremendous effort from Leonard 23.94 secs, both of them making light work of the longish wet grass and a home straight headwind. Next up came the Scratch races with first places for Edgar, Leonard, Bede and Shaquille. With the results in the Roadie Pursuit and Devil races going pretty much the same way.
Once again we had tandem racing - this time a father and son race - won by Wotjek and Alexander against a plucky Gary and Stanley - lets all hope Stan's knee recovers soon. We were also treated to an exhibition Pursuit to the Death race featuring Category 1 racer Clem versus fresh from The National Track Championships Tao - with Clem's technique of laughing all the way round not working, allowing Mr T to catch him eventually.
