Bob Wright Handicap Series Race 4
2 kilometres road walk
Pleinmont, Guernsey
Terry Bates (pictured) won the fourth race in the Bob Wright Handicap Series with a six second advantage over second man home Kevin Le Noury, in a two kilometre road walk held at Pleinmont. The out and back course is not helpful towards fast times but Terry still managed to add another Guernsey Age Best time to his list. Since July he has claimed six new bests usually at the expense of past record holder Mick Le Sauvage.
A good walk from Kevin Le Noury saw him overtake wife Jayne in the latter stages to finish eight seconds up at the finish. A close affair in the middle of the field was won by Dave Dorey, who finished  only strides ahead of Stuart Le Noury and Carol Bates. Stuart and Carol made light of the ups and downs of the course to remove seven and six seconds respectivley from their previous best times.
After four races in the seven race series, Stuart Le Noury (68 pts) leads narrowly from Phil Lockwood (66 pts) and Carol Bates (64 pts). Race winner Terry Bates is next on 59.5 pts. Back in fifth place, but having walked a race less is Jayne Le Noury on 58 points. The series sees walkers count their best five walks from the seven walks on the fixture list.
The next walk is the Le Val des Terres Hill Climb over a distance of 815 metres, starting at 9.00 am on Sunday December 11th. Newcomers welcome. Details from Jayne Le Noury, tel 246865.
