The Colin Lewis Grand Prix was held in perfect condition this weekend with warm sunshine greeting the riders and spectators. Whilst this has been the fifth promotion of the event it’s also the first that has taken place since Colin passed away early in the year and was a poignant occasion. The briefing to the riders encouraged them to challenge their “inner Colin Lewis” and provide an attacking race befitting of the man who was twice British National Champion and a Tour De France Rider.
It was a great weekend of racing for the promoting club Mid Devon CC with new riders participating in their first races and podiums across all the age groups.
The list includes a clean sweep of the Under 8’s podiums With Ted Baxter, Henry Hatton and Gabriel Peterson-Hunt and Charlotte Ward, first and third Under 10 Boys with Ben Ward and Rudi Bruseker, 1st Under 12 Girl Edie Baxter, 3rd Under 16 Ed Selwood, 1ST and 2nd 4th Cat with Martin Smith and Piers Mahn – the latter a Junior rider in his first event and James Williams coming home first in the final race of the day for 2,3,4 category riders.
On the day Colin’s daughter Abby joined us to present the prizes all of which were kindly donated by event sponsors Planet X through their Carnac brand, the crowd were entertained by Professional Commentator Joe Fisher which really enhanced the day. Thanks to everyone for their support
