Rattler beaten in close finish

NEVILLE Caldwell jokingly suggested he might “get a roasting” after driving the Mary Valley Rattler to an extremely narrow loss in yesterday's big Race the Rattler event.

“They might not let me on next time,” he said, after being beaten by less than a second, as a team called “the Losers” proved they were winners in disguise.

Fireman Peter Alder described it as “a good finish” and MVHR president Tony Hallam said the huge crowd (boosted by more than 300 runners) was a great result, especially after the “post-flood recovery and certain comments made about the track”.

He said the hundreds of people on the platform demonstrated the community's support for the Rattler and its contribution to Imbil and the Mary Valley.
