A wet start to the 2016 tarmac season :-(

27th March 2016

It was a disappointing start to the 2016 'tarmac season' after the Guernsey Kart & Motor Club's Sprint meeting at Vazon coast road was terminated early after the threatened heavy rain arrived.

Perhaps the only consolation was that it arrived late, allowing competitors to get in a couple of runs before the road was awash.

Even at the start, the conditions weren't perfect for record-breaking as there was a strong cross-wind that came into play near the finish line. This is not something you want to experience when traveling at top speed, particularly on a bike!

So we are going to have to wait and hope that the next events are 'spoilt' by ideal conditions.

As I write this late on Sunday evening I'm following the weather updates for tomorrows Guernsey Motor Cycle & Car Club Hillclimb at Le Val des Terres... and they're not good! We might be experiencing more high winds and even heavier rainfall!

Perhaps this is the price we pay when Easter comes early. Roll on the summer I say :-)
