Winners

Winners of the Uckfield Grand Prix were: 1 Rock On, 2 F4ST, 3 Manor 1 Crazy Karts, 4 Team Bonners.

You might remember last year that St Mark’s, Hadlow Down, had an unexpected mascot after team supporter Fred found a puppy running loose early that morning, ran out of time to find his owner and brought him to the track.

It turned out that the puppy, now named Spanner, had escaped from a dog rescue centre and he has since been adopted by Fred. Spanner accompanied the St Mark’s team again and donned a cowboy outfit for the Uckfield News photo, see below.
