Sheffield GP, 22/7/15
« on: July 20, 2015, 04:07:09 pm »
Anyone going to this? It's an evening meet (the affected roads are closed from 17:15 and the main, points carrying, race is from 20:45 (IIRC).

I am in the enviable position of a) working in Sheffield and b) work pay for a hotel for me, when I need it (usually Wednesday nights), so I shall be leaving work, going to Bungalow and Bear for some scran, then off up to the Towh Hall/Peace Gardens to watch the racing.

I shan't be wearing a YACF top, though (which will make me MUCH harder to spot :) )

I enjoyed that, I didn't get any photos, though as each time I tried to get a good line of sight of the course someone would stand in front of me (usually a large bloke with a unfeasibly large camera. Not the same one each time, though).  The juniors gave the seniors something to think about during the Cat3/4 race and the Elite race made me wince more than once at the speed they flew around the course.
