On the eve of the general election, there was an exceptional turn-out of 78 riders despite the cold conditions, and each race in another action-packed meet had several candidates for victory. In the search for an outright winner tonight, my vote was definitely going to the joint league leader Felix English. The in-form junior had put in a barn-storming performance last week when he won every race in which he took part, and he had clinched the final stage of the Isle of Man International Junior Tour the previous weekend.

Friday's meeting of the Welwyn Track League was brought to a premature end as rain, which had threatened all day, finally arrived during the latter stages of the first Senior A League 10 lap scratch race.

The race was shortened to 9 laps and was won by Bryan Taylor by inches from Lewis Atkins with Mark Baxter in third place. There was the usual high turnout of riders and all categories completed one race before racing was abandoned for the evening.
