A glorious day in Southern Warwickshire saw the last event of the season before the summer break. Ian Wright took the win on the final pass of the hills, from close friend and rival Ian Veale. It had looked like a Veale win as he lead from the start, but a three on one of the final hills to Wright’s zero proved to be key as Wright finished on 11 points with Veale’s 13 points. Julian Fack was the best of the rest back on 24 points, completing the podium. Read More »

We took in another new venue for the Pennine Sporting Trial, near Warslow. The trialing season is approaching its summer break so there are only a handful of events left to gain valuable points, looking ahead to the championsip finals due in early January 2019. With the crews making 4 passes at each of the 8 hills it was Ian Wright & Alex Hill who took the lead only scoring 8 points. Roland Uglow & Laura Wilks managed the same score on the 2nd pass to take the overall lead going in to the lunchbreak. Read More »

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 »

sportingtrial16 (49)Our first experience of Sporting Trials and we only happened to catch a great days entertainment as the Gold Star and Silver Star championships were decided. Out on the Welsh border near Knighton 35 crews tackled the slippery slopes and after the 1st round Ian & Sandy Veale had a solitary penalty point with John & Jordan Fack just another point behind. With Andy Wilks & Mark Smith back on 6 points ahead 5 crews on 7 point, it was going to be a tight battle through the next two runs. Simon & Clive Gracey picked up just 4 penalty points on the 2nd runs and jumped up in to 2nd overall, as the hills deteriorated. Ian & Sandy Veale still held the lead but 12 penalty points was outside the top 3 on this round, as 5 points separated the top 3, with the weather closed in. Read More »
