Let’s try and see some new faces at this one eh?
Lord of Lydden and Sidecar Burn-
After an absence of many years these two events were combined into a 2 dayer at Lydden on the 20/21st October. The weather could have fooled you into thinking it was still summer. Some good racing in all classes, although some were fairly light in numbers. But an enjoyable event none the less.
Congratulations to Danny Webb who became the new Lord of Lydden and to Tim Reeves and his passenger Mark Wilkes for winning the Sidecar Burn-
There was a small break on Sunday when they scattered the ashes of Tony Harris who sadly passed away earlier in 2018. Tony was a very successful racer in the late seventies and had won the “Lord” title several times.
There was also a new title “Junior Lord of Lydden” and these youngsters treated us to some fantastic close racing. We are use to seeing Youth Trials and grasstrack but the budding Rossi’s and Crutchlows’ have to start young and there were potentially several stars in the making.
Check out “Fab Racing” through Google
Anyway if you didn’t get down there why not try next year -
