It was another close one down in Frocester as Roland Uglow took win number 3 in a row, this season. He had started round 3 trailing Ian Veale by a single point, with John Fack just a point further back, but thanks to five 0’s across the 8 hills he set a superb score of just 3 points to take victory from Veale by 8 points. Uglow really is in fine form and the BTRDA Gold Star Championship final in Penrith, next January, should be a really cracker. Paul Price matched Veale’s score of 12 on round 3 to secure 3rd overall by just two points from Richard Sharp who notched up a score of 9 points on the final round. Fack dropped back to sixth overall as he failed to make a low score on final round of hills. Read More »

plumpudding17-13It was a superb start to the year down in Hampshire as we took in our first Historic Sporting Trial. A few miles South of Petersfield was the venue for 6 tests amongst mature woodland, with a mixture of vehicles from the 1960’s up to 1974. In the Historic class Ian Wright & Steve Jones (Cannon) won by 14 points from David & Lesley-Ann Methley (Cannon), meanwhile the post Historic class, (and overall victory), went to Steve Courts & Dave Oliver (Facksimile) by just a single point from Mark & Paul Howse (Facksimile). All in all another excellent days motor sport. Read More »

gloster16-1John Fack became the ninth different winner of the year at the round of the Sporting trial season at the Gloster. Fack hadn’t won for two years since winning the British championship and ended the year with an overall win, which his identical twin Jerome started with. A heavy overnight frost made for extremely treacherous conditions and a high scoring day with Fack and Roland Uglow leading the way finishing just seven marks apart. Reigning BTRDA Gold Star champion Ian Veale completed the podium a further eleven behind. Read More »

birkett16-7The Birkett continues to be a fascinating race and a highlight of the year as 70 teams took to the Silverstone GP circuit, for the end of season 6 hour race. After the first hour 3 teams were separated by just under 45 seconds with Tracktime Solutions in a fierce battle with JPR Motorsport (Sakr Rapx S1) with We Don’t Like Second back (Radical PR6 & SR3s) in 3rd place, but JPR Motorsport came unstuck in the 2nd hour where only having one race car saw them drop 5 laps. Tracktime Solutions still lead but having used their Radical SR3s early on the Lotus Exige drivers were out on track in the 3rd hour and We Don’t Like Second took the lead and never looked back.

birkett15 (25)A very soggy Silverstone provided a challenge for the 68 teams that contested the 65th Birkett 6hrs Relay. In the scratch race Inspires (all Spire GT3’s) used their fastest driver, Tim Gray, to good effect to take victory by a lap with 128 laps in total, just getting an extra lap in before the flag dropped for 6 hours completed. Third Time Lucky (Radicals) came in 2nd overall missing out on getting on the same lap as the winners by 14 seconds, and leading at 4hr mark. The podium was completed by The Defibrillators (Vision, Phantom & Mallocks) a further 6 laps back. Read More »

birkett14 (6)Quite possible one of the most entertaining but baffling races you could ever wish to see. 70 teams of between 4-6 drivers and almost as many cars, it is almost impossible to keep track of this race as a handicap system is used so Smart cars can have just as much chance of winning as the Radicals. With BMWs, Caterhams, Ginettas, Locusts, MGs, Porsches & Saxos all thrown in to the mix this really is a race for anyone. In the end you just go with the flow and enjoy lots of overtaking and the sheer spectacle of 70 cars lapping Silverstone at one time. Read More »
