cleehills17-40It was a largely dry day but the ground was incredibly slippery for the two tests we watched at, Flounders Folly and Strefford Wood. At Flounders there were two stand out performances; Dean Partington & Sam Phillips were simply the best on 4 wheels in their Wasp and Glenn Morgan (GasGas) was one of very few riders who cleared the section but it was his balance and speed that stood out. At the gloopy Strefford cars faired better with most of the class 8’s clearing the section, but it required lots of power to do so. The bikes struggled but Spike Stewart took his GasGas the furthest up the section.

Overall the 4 wheel section was won by the class 4 VW Beetle of Sam & Mick Holmes with the class 8 Wasp of Mike Chatwin & Duncan Stephens tied on 5 points, but 2nd overall due to it running in a higher class. 3rd overall, on just 7 points, were Nick Deacon & Dave Skinner in their class 5 Suzuki X90. The bikes were tight overall too with Roger Ashby (Ariel HT5) taking overall victory by just one point. Graham Lloyd (Matchless) just edged 2nd overall thanks to riding a lower class bike with Morgan 3rd overall.
