Roland Uglow continued to dominate, having missed the last round, to take his third win of the season, with passenger Alison Gibbs back in the car.
On a dry day in Derbyshire Uglow won by just a single point from Richard Sharp who won the last event who also tied with Peter Fensom to complete the podium.
John Fack finished in fourth just ahead of Andy Wilks and Simon Kingsley. Twenty points back in seventh was Bob Packham who borrowed Mike Salton’s car to finish top blue live axle just ahead of reigning Gold Star champion Josh Veale who continues to get used to his new independent car.
Mike Salton was top clubman in ninth, three points behind Packham. Top red live axle was Brian Thornton in thirteenth just ahead of Stuart Beare.
Top blue independent driver was Mike Readings in fifteenth taking the last MSA point. Bill Bourne in just his second trial won top Rookie in a creditable twenty fourth.
