Results for 2012 Race

Special note – due to the transient nature of the issue, I have given a 2 minute penalty to the early starters who went through (based on splits analysis) the temporarily opened gate near No.172 (Serjeants Inn), rather than DSQ’ing. Thank you to those who let me know they had gone through. Oliver O’Brien ()
