Bob Wright Handicap Series Race 6
10 kilometres road walk at Delancey Park, Guernsey.
Determined Effort by Terry Bates
A determined effort by Terry Bates (pictured last September) gave him victory in the 6th race of the Bob Wright Series over 10 kilometres. He had a winning look in his eye for the latter half of the race as he steadily closed the gaps on those walkers set off in front of him. A half way time of 29.50 set him on his way to break the hour for the full distance as he went into the lead in the final lap of the sixteen. A close finish for second place went to Jane Rowlinson who outkicked Dave Dorey in the final metres after a race long tussle. Jane took over two minutes off her previous best time, with a new best time of 70.02.
Backmarkers Stuart Le Noury and Phil Lockwood set off together with only ten to fifteen seconds separating them for most of the race until Stuart Le Noury increased the gap late on. The fastest time of the day went to Stuart in 53.32, followed by Phil`s 54.16, both good efforts on a cold morning.
With only one race to go in the Series over a mile on February 27th the advantage lies with Terry Bates if he race the final event, who has scored three wins so far. Allowing for the two races that can be discarded from the Series, his nearest challengers are close together and still in with a chance themselves for the Bob Wright Trophy.
The next race, which is not in the Series, is on Sunday February 13th at 9.30 am over 5 miles. The start is at Les Passee and the finish at North Side. Details from Jayne Le Noury, tel 246865.
