The Weather Bureau had promised a hot dry day with a fresh to strong southerly breeze, and that is exactly what we got. The steady southerly wind kept the skin temperature down and it was a good thing, because if we didn't have that we would have all been toast! The track was dry and fast and every piece of shade was utilised by the spectators to avoid the sun.

The turn out was excellent, with about 14 Postie bikes in attendance and a generous amount of spectators, many from the Speight family, who had come to organise and witness the inaugural Bruce Speight Memorial Race. Bruce Speight was fellow Postie Biker who was responsible for producing the 'Green Hornet' which burst onto the scene back in Nov 99. Unfortunately, Bruce passed away last year and his family and friends thought it would be a fitting tribute to hold a memorial race in his honor. A trophy was produced by the family and a 20 lap relay race was chosen so that many more folks could be involved in the race. From now on the first event held each year will have a 20 lap Bruce Speight Memorial Relay Race and the Bruce Speight Memorial Trophy will be up for grabs.
