The April 2003 Postie Race @ Hallwood
|We had a top day at the Postie bike race
held on Saturday 12th April at Hallwood. What a beautiful autumn day
it was. About 20 degrees, a few clouds and a mild north easterly
The turnout was pretty good with about 10 Postie bikes at the race. There was also three Honda XR50s, one XR100 and an XL250. Danny, the guy who broke his leg at the last race turned up with a Postie bike with a home made sidecar on it! Click here to see Danny's Bike.
A few 5 lap races were held before the big one, the "Postie 2 hour race". Eleven bikes started the 2 hour at 3:05 PM and right away it was Jeremy blowing them away with Dave 2nd and Neale in 3rd. I was back in about 5th for a long time then it all changed. Jeremy was out, Dave was having chain problems and suddenly I find myself in 4th. Then the bike in 3rd goes out, moving me to 3rd. Neale ended up winning for a well earned victory with Dave finishing in 2nd.
After the race an all night party was held and we all had a great time.
