Event Report

Mark Hoppe proved his last win wasn’t a fluke with a measured drive to win the Derwydd Car Trial on Saturday. Initially challenged by Dick Glossop and despite a blocked jet in his carburettor Hoppe took the class win and overall narrowly from brother in law Shawn Franklin. Franklin similarly drove superbly having been in Italy till the day before to win the new car class from Barrie Parker who remained in his Fiat 600. Gary Preston finally managed to overcome niggling issues in his newly built Fiat 127 to win the front wheel drive class completing the podium, ahead of an ecstatic Dave Walker who narrowly beat Richard Harrison. Glossop could only manage fifth overall after two costly errors, beating past British and BTRDA champion Henry Kitching.
