BTRDA Car Trial Grand Final

Everybody is looking forward to the climax of the BTRDA Car Trial season with the Grand Final on Sunday 5th October at Catton Park, near Tamworth.

Seventeen of the best Car Triallists in the country will be doing their best to walk away with the Gold Star® award. Eight other awards await their winners too.

Favourite for the Gold Star has to be Mark Hoppé (Saxo) who has already won the British Championship this year. However, he'll have a fight on his hands with John Wadsworth (Ka) in tremendous form and Dave Walker (Corsa) always goes well in the dry conditions anticipated. If Mark does slip up by not winning Class One, then Steve Courts (Imp) or Barrie Parker (Westfield) can win Gold Star with a Class Three victory themselves. The battle of the day will doubtless be in Class Two with four former Gold Star winners vying for a class win.

Silver Star leader Steve Courts is best placed to win this (as long as he doesn't win Gold), with Simon Harris (Golf) in second place and hoping to stay there! If he doesn't, then Brian Roberts (Dutton) could nip into the runners up spot with a good drive.

Bronze Star leader Mark Hoppé can't win this as well as Gold! If he takes gold, then John Wadsworth should win Bronze, with Kevin Roberts (Dutton) in line for second place.

The Jack Williams trophy (awarded to the competitor with the aggregate scores from their five lowest marks from the qualifying events plus the Final, is incredibly close at present. Just one mark separates Parker and Courts with the final to come on Sunday.

All this, of course, is assuming the cars hold up. Retirement will be costly.
The anticipation is building.

Marshals are welcome and are offered a free lunch at the on-site catering. Contact Neil via the details on the website.
