Gordon’s winning entry ‘Wheel of Speed’ was taken at the Oulton Park racing circuit.

The open print section saw a captivating array of sports images, with two white water slalom canoeists making the top five.

The eventual winner was a striking sports image of BMX racing ‘Chums to the finish line’ taken by local photographer John Cridland.

It was also good to see new members featuring in both competitions, with Nigel Wells taking second place in the PDI section with ‘Tug of War’.
