Nigel Robinson, was one of many to fall foul of the changeable weather conditions at the second round of the Aghadowey Winter Series, for Pit Bikes.

After a damp start, the sun shone, but a heavy shower during the days proceedings, left the track rather slippery.

In race one Nigel was left on the grid as his machine stalled, nevertheless, he got going, and finished 5th.  Race two, he was taken out on the opening lap, and in race 3,took 4th but in the last race of the day, he was out of luck, after another slip off!

Kenny Robinson was making his Winter series debut, but problems in practice, hindered his progress, Dad Malcolm, gave up his racing, as a carburettor was taken from his bike and put on to Kennys to get his machine going! Kenny went on to take three podium finishes, and a slip off!
