PP winners 2018

Peter Palmer winners again - another superb effort from all our Juniors! They've only gone and won entries and accommodation at 10Mila 2019 in Skane, Sweden for a WCOC Team. As always many many thanks to all the drivers and helpers, to WCOC for all your support, to SYO for putting on such a great event, to the Junior who returned from Uni and those who delayed going to Uni until after the race! You really are all Best in the West!
