2016 Club Champion Stuart Hampson, caught by photographer Barry Robinson in a rare moment with a foot down.
Modified from previous information: Malcolm Adams, a founder member of the West Leeds Motor Club has passed away. The funeral arrangements are as follows: Service at St Johns, Moor Allerton at 13:00 on 1st February, followed by the Committal at Lawnswood Crematorium at 14:20.
At our AGM on the 12th the problem of our absent secretary was finally resolved, Mark Chippendale (see bottom right) is going to take over the job and has already commandeered two assistants in the shape of Howard Gulley and Steve Arnall. There were also some other changes to the club officials. The full list can be seen here.
Some other good news from this meeting was that there are no changes to the club fees, so they will remain at 2016 levels.
The high winds and heavy rain forecast over the weekend never materialised, but an overnight shower made for an interesting first lap with greasy conditions until 30 mph wind gusts sprung up shortly after the start and rapidly dried out much of the course. Young Freddie Stephenson had the misfortune to have a branch remove his machines isolating kill switch and after spending some time searching in the bracken for the item with no success had to retire. Roy pushrod Palmer had a good ride on his twin shock Kawasaki proving there is still life in the old machine yet.
At the conclusion of the championship year the points have been totted up and the award winners decided. Click link here to view this years winners and awards. The awards will be presented at our annual dinner on the 10th February 2017. Once again this will be a joint affair with our neighbouring club, Horsforth & DMC at the Manor Golf Club. It will be a buffet meal and the time is 7pm for a 7:30pm start. Menu here!
