Well done to the four record breakers on such a great performances.. With the larger fields than in the past the competition was much fiercer with many members running seasons best by good margins.
A new feature of the event was the introduction of electronic timing for the three races. In addition to more accurate timing it makes the verification of records much more straight forward.
