Matt Cable ties up West Midlands Lawn Mower Racing Association title
MATT Cable is a cut above the rest after tying up this season’s West Midlands Lawn Mower Racing Association title.
Cable, who rides for the Weedy Gonzales team, clinched the title after a thrilling final round at the Barons Cross Inn, Leominster.
WMLMRA club chairman Neil Sparey, from Clifton, representing The Baiting House, was second overall and Rob Silver took third spot in the final standings.
Club secretary Roger Thirlby, from Tenbury Wells, paid tribute to all those who had shone during the season.
“Congratulations to all our gladiators who have fought through sun, rain, mud and technical difficulties, to provide such a thrilling season,” he said.
“We look forward to an even bigger season in 2014.
“We would welcome any new teams looking for technical support and any would-be track marshalls.”
Drivers can reach speeds of around 30mph and events took place this summer in Clifton, Upper Sapey, Stanford Bridge and Broadheath.
The association have, over the years, made substantial donations to the Air Ambulance, SARA and various other charities. The next evening meeting takes place at The Baiting House, Upper Sapey, on Monday, October 30 at 7.30pm.
