The club were also delighted to see the racing return of popular Maculay Burnett, son of Coventry treasurer Richard. The day also featured another relative newcomer, fast improving Levi Walters, posting his highest ever score.

These pleasing participation figures do not include Konrad Piatek, Dominik Rycharski and Myke Grimes, who were all rested for the day and injured Coventry U13s champion Spencer Sawbridge. They also don`t include Joe McLaughlin, also injured, and star girl racer Sammi Marsh, who was spectating at Wednesfield.

Coventry manager Lee Marsh said: “Sunday was a spectacular success for us in every way. To see our hard work at recent promotional activities reap instant dividends was great to see. We are ending the year on a real high”.
