Alan Clarke takes the National Scurry Driving Championship in spectacular form with his ponies Pride & Joy and of course his wife and groom, Lyndsey.
Karen Morris with Pepsi & Shirley completed the course without any penalty in a time of 58.74 secs. a very competitive time. Could Alan, last to go, better it. Disaster struck, he knocked the ball off at the 2nd Gate, surely he could not make up those lost 5 seconds and beat Karen. Alan thought otherwise and pushed the ponies on, a stunning box, a very straight slalom and the race was on and he drove through the finish in a time of 53.28. The commentator hesitated and then announced ‘He’s done it’ a time of 58.28 secs.
Fantastic competition. Well done everyone involved.
