2019 General Facts and Figures

We all love a bit of number crunching to find out who really was the best at each track.  Who was the first passed the post in the heat most often? Who won the most grade awards? Who finished most in the top 10?

Well, I've delved into the 2019 results and pulled out the facts written below.  Some may appear obvious or be common knowledge but others may surprise.  Sit back with a cup of tea and a biscuit or two (plus a good amount of free time) and get those reading glasses on.
