Damp conditions met the crews who started the 5th Cotwold Historic Sporting Trial. With a total of 7 hills to be tackled 3 times, the first pass saw a huge disparity between the crews. Trevor Wood & Frank Lyons were tied on 2 points with Sandy Veale & Emily Williams. Just a further 2 points back was Steve Courts, albeit leading the post Historic class. Wood and Courts then scored 4 points on the next pass with Veale scoring 12 points and dropping back to third overall. The 3rd pass saw 5 points scored by Wood to take victory from Courts who notched up 9 penalty marks to finish 6 points behind Wood.

3rd overall slipped away from Veale with a 3rd round score of 17 points, taking him to a total of 31 points. It was good enough for 2nd in the Historic class behind the overall winner, with Ian Wright & Mark Maynard just 4 points behind to take 3rd in Historic class. Meanwhile in the post Historic class Courts took a comfortable victory with Dave & Jennie Oliver 2nd in the class and pipping Veale for 3rd overall by just a single point, on the final pass of the hills. Andrew Gowen & Rob McGrath completed the post Historic podium with 31 points.
