Under threat of rain and darkening skies another good turnout on Monday night saw a long night of action, mainly behind the red Palmer Park Derny’s, with everyone sharing the spoils.
Numbers were down both in the youths and seniors probably due to the weather - several riders said they had driven through heavy rain and thunder - and the number of riders still recovering from their exertions at the Masters National Track Championships in Newport.
The Dernies were out again on Monday night for the latest round of the Senior B Motor Paced Championship. A combination of the reduced programme for the Senior A riders and the start of the holiday season saw numbers down in the As, but there was no lack of determination as they set off after the large B field in the opening Hare and Hounds.
