The opening round of the 2013 Saracen BDS kicked off at Combe Sydenham, Somerset at the weekend. Sam Hill came all the way from Australia for a taste of British National racing. He wanted Aussie sunshine but Somerset gave him a cold bath. The April showers showed up right on que and gave the track a good old soaking.

Still, it's a race weekend and it's the same conditions for everybody (just a little bit tougher for the icecream van man maybe).

Robbie Giles was there for DirtTV and captured the action.

Full results are here.
