The Albany Soapbox Club had their food stall set up and Margaret Walmsley had her coffee van set up as well.
a few hiccups with the scaffolding and the camera on the start line, the
event kicked off with the practice runs, then followed by the nominated
Steve Collins did a good job as track marshal, as well as the time keepers and pit crew who kept everything in check to keep riders moving along without any time wasting.
After the lunch break the weather let us down and the track became slippery at the top with water on the road, so proceedings were brought to a halt after the second lot of nominated time runs.
Overall it was a good day enjoyed by participants with an excellent turn out by the spectators with an estimated 450-500 through the gate.
A big thank you from the club for all those who helped out on Saturday and Sunday to contribute towards a successful Classic Weekend.
