A NEWLY-WED motor enthusiast from Primrose Valley was shown the red flag within 24 hours of getting hitched.
Mechanic Jay Hammerton married his girlfriend of three years Zoe Ashworth at Staxton Church last Saturday.
The following day he was competing in his stock hatch car at Scarborough Autograss Club’s Hunmanby raceway – his car decorated by fellow competitors with banners and balloons.
Friend Steve Lilly said: “As Jay’s race was under starter’s orders all the other competitiors in his race stayed put while Jay raced ahead to be confronted by the marshall who waved a red flag at him to stop – which Jay did, only to have a bucket of water thrown at him!”
Mr Lilly said Zoe, who works at Irton Riding School and attends all Jay’s meetings, managed to see the funny side.
