B H M C C Race Report - 19th June 2005
After being caught out by the dust at their last meeting, BHMCC went all out to prevent a reoccurance.
The track had been graded weeks before and there had been little rain since.
The club arranged for a water bowser on the Saturday and Sunday and complemented this with the AMCA supplied pumps.
Even though it was the hottest weekend of the year so far and many meetings were being cancelled
due to dusty conditions, BHMCC's meeting at Menithwood, Clows Top went ahead without incident and were finished with the paddock cleared before 5PM.
