Thanks to Jana for all her help on registration and download. Thanks to Pat for printing the map.

Short course series starts at Kennedy Park

Well done to all those who took part yesterday. Thanks to Jana and Laura for their help on registration and start. The splits times may be a little out due the control that had to moved due to the Vintage car rally and 2 of the units need checking after the summer recess. The new super fast Si cards do not register properly either so another one for the computer gurus. Thanks to Jana for the pictures.
