East London traveled the A22 all the way to Hellingly knowing only 4 of there riders were showing up to race, but our team spirit was not dampened and we were not beaten easily, East London borrowed two of Hellingly's riders just to fill up the team sheet and make sure every race had a full grid.
East London division 1 points scored - N. Gunkel 14, D. Hughes 12, S. Stanley 7, R. Austen 18, T. Basset (Hellingly) 9, E. Patel (Hellingly) 10.
Division 2 Hellingly 65 - 74 East London
East London had to field the same 4 riders for the Division 2 match and once again due to the lack of club members had to borrow two riders from Hellingly, East London started the division 2 match much stronger after getting used to the track (this is the first time we have raced here for 10 years) and were soon picking up the heat wins and getting a rare and well deserved victory.
East London division 2 points scored - D. Hughes 12, R. Austen 16, S. Stanley 6, N. Gunkel 18, S. Archer (Hellingly) 10, J. Cox (Hellingly) 12.
The chips and ice cream on Eastbourne pier after the racing had finished was a great way to spend an afternoon although it's no Ginsters and chocolate milk !!!!!
Our next Home match is against Great Blakenham 17th July 2016 @ 2pm start
Canning Town Rec, Prince Regent Lane, E16 3JJ
