Norman Perren Memorial Trial - 1st Jan 2020

New Years day 2020 started out bright but cool, perfect for a days motorsport!  29 competitors (get well soon Cutting family) took to the hills, and even though it had rained heavily in the week, the sandy soil in the Seckford field valley had drained well and gave adequate grip once the wet grass had dried out.  A good number of clean tests across all classes in the morning, meant some lunchtime adjustments to keep the drivers on the their toes in the afternoon.  The changes were perfectly managed (thanks David) as even normally unstoppable Hanman Dellow picked up a few scores.  Barry Redmayne was unlucky to pick up a 4 in round 2 when unusually the car cut out in a test, otherwise he turned in a points free day.  Tim Hanman kept clean all morning, but almost threw it away picking up a 2 in round 4, another 1 in round 5, but his overall score of 3 was just enough to pip Barry to the overall event win. Barry had to console himself with the Class D win.  Class A was won by Dick Lines, despite a last minute change of vehicle.  Nick Davey finished with a very respectable score of 28 in the Citroen AX GT to take the Class B honours. John Peterson was using the event as a shakedown for both himself and his Sporting Trials car, the Cap Mk3, and all went well as he was the only driver with a zero score at the end of the day.
