M1 Mays 2016: Final Day

So Bumps has come to an end again, with a punchy and powerful performance in a fun but ultimately unsuccessful contest against Churchill M1.  We pushed hard, but technically were far from our best, and Churchill slowly gained on us all the way.  Their first whistles were optimistic, but by first post corner they were beginning to creep up on us, and after an exciting race down Plough Reach the 'bump' (which was actually a blade clash as we took the outside line around Ditton and they kept the racing line, coming up alongside us for a few tense seconds) happened at the beginning of the Long Reach.  Still, we stuck it out for a long time and can hold our heads high.  This crew will all still be here next year, so plenty of opportunities for revenge then!
