A small field of 54 riders for the West Kent RC “10” on the Harrietsham – Charing course was well supported by the club with 7 first claim members and 1 second claim member taking part. Conditions were cool and misty with a light cross wind from the south. There was a tie for first place with Michael Barnes recording the same time as second claim member, Jon Parker. Their time was 21.13. Thanet RC times in starting order were:
Rob Milnes: 25.20
Bill Hawkes: 22.31
Dave Mastin: 26.23
Mark Palmer: 23.22
Simon Henderson: 22.30
Andy McCall: 28.36
Andy Burrows: 27.20

Simon complained about having “lost” 19 watts of power and was consoling himself by getting stuck into the cakes from the tea bar!
