A good evening was had by all at the OrthoLink Sprint heat draw and Calcutta last night. After some interesting heats were drawn a record breaking £544 was taken at the Calcutta meaning prize money of £272 for 1st, £164 for second and £82 for third place will be paid out. Thanks to everyone who participated and good luck!
