After a year away we returned to the Cotswold Clouds to a snowy and very wintry scene in Dursley, Stroud and surroundings. Crooked Mustard took up its usual slot as first hill for the odd numbered cars and proved to be as entertaining as normal. Very few crews cleared the hill with many going no further than the ledge at post 7 to post 5. We then moved on to the Badgers Wood complex and took in the picture perfect Gerry’s test, which had a stop start to the class 7 & 8 cars. With a decent covering of snow it proved to be a superb days motorsport. Read More »

Fourty three crews arrived at an unseasonably dry Frocester site to contest the 2018 Gold and Silver Star final. Ten long sections were laid out across the deceptively dry site and with the threat of rain looking slim it looked like a low scoring day was in store. 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 »

Our 3rd Plum Pudding Sporting Trial and a bumper entry tackled the 6 hills on offer. With the conditions under foot very good it was always going to be a low scoring trial and after 2 runs Andy Gowen (Ibex), Ian Wright (Cannon) and Steve Courts (Facksimile) had cleared every hill. On the 3rd run Courts scored 1 on hill 1 and it was enough to drop him to 3rd overall as Gowen and Wright cleared every hill on round 3 and could not be separated. They were declared joint winners. Mitch Wood took the historic category in 5th place overall, scoring just 5 penalty points. Read More »

Ian Wright ended his championship winning season in a fitting manner by winning the Gloster Sporting Trial. Without a victory since September, Ian found the conditions to his liking as he powered his way to victory. Wet conditions underfoot met the 32 starters, and as the day wore on and intermittent rain showers broke up the dull conditions, the early grass disappeared and engine revs began to rise on an enjoyable day’s sport at this super site. Josh Veale and Roland Uglow led the way early on with Josh holding a slender point lead at lunchtime on 17 with Roland on 18 and Ian Wright two points further back on 20. Read More »

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. Read More »

After missing the 2017 edition we were back for the 68th running of the Birkett 6hrs relay race. The day started out grey and once the rain started during the the 3rd hour of the race it only got worse. It did nothing to dampen the racing though and in the scratch race a late safety car period saw the gap between the top two teams dramatically reduced. Long time leaders Cupra Racing held on to win by half a second from the hard charging Breakell Racing Heroes, after the 6 hours of racing. In the handicap race it was the Red Rascal team who took victory by just over half a minute from the Mostly Rusty Two Seaters. Read More »

A glorious day at Long Compton greeted the 35 crews who started the event, with 33 completing the days 3 passes across the 8 hills. Hill 6 provided an almost impossible section beyond post 6 on the first run, adding 5 points to everyone’s total in the first pass. With a revision to hill 6 for the next run low scores were achievable and in the end it was John Fack who took victory with a total of 20 points. Ian Veale took 2nd overall with 26 points in what proved to be a tight battle for 2nd overall with Ian Wright 3rd on 27 points and Josh Veale 4th with 28 points. Read More »

Fantastic weather conditions bathed the Otterburn ranges for the Tyneside Stages Rally. Peter Taylor & Andrew Roughead (Fiesta WRC) were car 1 and they utterly dominated the event, going fastest on all 12 stages and taking victory by over 2 minutes. Rory Young & Allan Cathers (Fiesta R5) were 2nd fastest on all 12 stages so took a deserved runners up place with Gordon Morrison & Calum MacPherson (Impreza) a further 50 seconds back, in third place. 1st 2WD crew home and a superb 4th overall were Ross Brusby & Sam Collis (Escort MkII) just 23s off a podium place.

After a wonderful days trialing last year at Plashes Farm we had no hesitation about returning in 2018, especially as it is the closed season for modern trials. After weeks of dry weather some rain did fall overnight but the tests were all incredibly dry so the difficulty had to be stepped up to provide a challenge. Once again there was a bumper entry with well over 40 crews starting the event across the historic and post historic classes. Read More »
