Norfolk win Masters & Seniors Inter-County Competition
NORFOLK emerged as winners of the East Region Masters and Seniors Inter-County competition at Newmarket Leisure Centre, finishing in top spot with 280 points - just 19 points clear of second-placed Cambridgeshire.
The competition saw all six counties from the East Region competing for our own trophy locally and, when all the regions in the country submit their results, against all counties nationwide.
Norfolk and Suffolk were the early leaders with first position changing between the two teams race by race. Cambridgeshire were only a few points behind the leaders and with a few events left all three teams were in contention for the overall winners spot but Norfolk managed to open up a small gap to take first place with Cambridgeshire just overhauling Suffolk to take the runners-up shield.
