Antony Wallis continued his domination in Veteran Circuit Racing, with his 14th victory out of 14 races riding for Coventry based Team Jewson—M.I.Racing—Polypipe—McCann. This latest victory was held on the wind swept circuit at Darley Moor near Ashbourne, Derbyshire made even worse by driving rain throughout the event.
50 year old Antony was competing in the event for riders 40 years and over, and once again, made light work of his much younger rivals breaking away after only 3 laps with team mate and ex-professional, Rob Muzio, doing an excellent job of policing the main field. Antony stayed clear to win by almost ½ a lap and Rob finished in 3rd place after another great display of team work.
Next weekend Antony will attempt to win the LVRC National Circuit Championships on the same circuit—should be an interesting event – can he make it 15 victories out of 15 races ?
Sunday will see another M.I.Racing Promotion – this time by the non-racing section called “Coventry Olympic Group Sportive” assisted by “Coventry Lions.”
The aim is to raise funding for 4 Local Charities. The rides start and finish at the Baginton Oak Public House from 9-00am.
