Robin Alexander Sporting Trial
Camel Vale Motor Club
MSA, BTRDA, Reis ASWMC
Roland Uglow won the Robin Alexander Sporting trial at his home farm for the third successive year in what turned into attrocious conditions after torrential rain at lunch. Uglow lead all day to win by five points from Simon Kingsley, these two a class of the field. Fellow Yorkshire and father son crew Richard Sharp completed the podium with a couple of fabulous trickles on the very slippery unforgiving ground. Top live axle red driver was Roger Bricknell who was travelling the ground exceptionally quickly in sixth place beating the blue independent driver of Colin Flashman in eighth, while Alan Baker was best live axle red driver. Andy Egger switched from rallying to sporting trials to finishbest rookie with reigning British championship winning passenger and girlfriend Laura Wilks. The late Robin Alexander’s son James and grandson were competing in Robin’s old car just behind Egger with a steep learning curve.
