Old Vale Circuit Scratch Races

Bathurst Scratch Races - 8th April 2018
Graded Scratch races today in Bathurst on the very historic Old Vale Road Race Circuit.

In the 1930s this course hosted some of the biggest motor sport in Australia including the Australian TT Champs. In fact it was due to the success of this motor racing circuit that the world famous Mt Panorama circuit was built.

With a Grand Fono World Championship series event finishing on the legendary Mt Panorama it seems only fitting that cycling went to the birth place of the Mt Panorama race circuit in the lead up to the Bathurst Cycling Classic (and the world famous Blayney to Bathurst) in a couple of weeks.

The A&B Grade was an entertaining race with plenty of action. However in the end 3 riders broke clear to take the outright major placing, NickNorth defeating break away companions Richard Hobson & Mark Windsor in dash to the finish line.

Exciting race in B Grade with Julian Wood defeating TonyBarlow LukeGilmer after promising Junior Ben Anderson got away with Hobson, Windsor & North late in the race and looked set to win B Grade. however the youngster was caught and the B Grade field came back together for a sprint.

Mick Foran won C Grade on Old Vale circuit win with Toireasa Gallagher & GrahamStait making up the Podium. Rosemary Hastings defeating Cathy Adams Geoff Ryan & RobynPartridge in D Grade.
