Murky conditions shrouded the Shropshire hills for the 2019 running of the Clee Hills Trial. Conditions varied also across the hills with Flounders Folly proving very slippy in places. The crews across two and four wheels registered a wide range of scores and provided plenty of entertainment for the spectators. With just under 100 crews starting the action took several hours to complete before we moved on to Easthope to watch the class 7 & 8 cars tackle a tricky straight uphill blast. This too had various scores with most crews getting past the 6 post and just a few cleaning the section. Read More »

A cold but dry Brands Hatch helped balance the stage conditions between the 2WD and 4WD competitors and it was John Stone & Jack Morton (Fiesta WRC) who went fastest on the opening two stages. Chris West & Keith Hounslow (306 Maxi) were then fastest on the next pair of stages but it was Stone who was ahead by 3 seconds at the lunch break. Stage 5 would prove pivotal as West came out just behind a lower runner, after a merge, dropping a few seconds. Worse was to follow for Stone though as he got stuck behind the Satria Millington of Tony Robinson, after he stalled at the hairpin in the pit lane. The best part of 15 seconds were lost and West had taken the lead. Read More »

Roland Uglow and John Fack running two cars apart set the early pace in round one of the 2018 Gold Star, with Roland’s two marks dropped closely followed by John’s three. Richard Sharp matched John’s score to sit in a tie for second with Bryan Walker a point further back on four with Ian Veale completing the top five on five. Read More »
