The most beautiful Autumn sunshine greeted the 110 plus competitors who rode in the annual Dave Roper Memorial event at the coveted venue of Tye Farm in Great Cornard. The course consisted of undulating stubble fields with all competitors racing in 2 heats across the 3 classes, each consisted of a 10 minute sprints plus 1 lap and gave spectators some serious racing resulting in 4 furious fast finals.

The Sudbury Club celebrated their 60th anniversary last year and it gave them an opportunity to proudly sport their newly rebranded logo in many guises, including new podium boxes resulting in a very lively and entertaining awards ceremony after a perfect day of racing. With thanks for all the donations from the many loyal members and supporters for the recent equipment investment and help with the time consuming running of these events.
