Newmarket Road South Flying Club finished their season with a fast race from Purbeck, with speeds exceeding 60mph for most of the birds.

Dave Downing again took top spot, but with just the one bird well ahead of the field.

Downing also had a good result in the British International Championship club race from Guernsey, being provisionally third in the NE Section (175 birds) and 31st in the Open (1780 birds) while Len Rix was ninth in the section and 85th in the Open.

Rix also entered two birds in the old bird race, taking seventh in the section (64 birds) and 27th in the Open (312 birds).

All round, it was a good end to the 2015 season for the club.
