Speaking on behalf of the Flyers, Micky Warbeck said: “The day started off well with the weather and the spon- sors were great, Hoddom Castle did a great spread, we can’t thank all the sponsors enough.”

“From where we’ve come in such a short time, it is great to see an event so well sup- ported and enjoyed.

“Everyone had a great time and the other road users gave us plenty of space and time.”
