New Year's Day Trial 2014

A huge thanks go out to the hardy marshals who withstood the lashing wind and rain and ensured the competitors had an excellent and safe days motorsport, these events do not run without you!  ...and to all those who stayed and ensured that everybody got out of the valley - the burger and results van both needing a 4x4 tow up the slope!

25 Competitors started the day, and there were fantastically close battles in all classes, often with no more that a point or two in it.  When the weather turned for the worse cutting the action short, it was Tim Hanman who took overall honours in the Dellow, leaving father Peter to have to settle for the Class D win.  At the end of the morning John Cooledge and Becky Rowles were very close, but Becky edged away in the afternoon to take class A honours.  Class B was hotly contested, John Peterson taking an early lead, but Christopher Pettitt was never far behind and it was Christopher who topped the table at the end of the day, with David Holmes just sneaking ahead of John P as the Mini struggled a bit with the wet conditions.  Finally just a single point separated Richard and Daniel Leggett in the little Fiat 500, with Daniel just taking the 'trophy'.

Anglian Autosolo Challenge 2013 - Rd 3

Round 3 of the Anglian Autosolo Challenge took place in glorious sunshine at Carver Barracks, Debden.

It was a very close fought day with only a few seconds (less than a pylon penalty!) covering the top few drivers, congratulations to Stephen Watts on a hard fought win in the autosolo, and to Richard Nel for an equally tough battle for the autotest honours. It was also great to see so many new drivers taking part, and given the all round smiles at the end I hope you'll come back for more! Click the link below to view the full results of the event:
