Event Report

Uglow rules Fedden for a hat-trick.

Roy Fedden Sporting Trial

Sunday 12th November

Bristol MC

Thornbury, Avon


29 starters

Roland Uglow retained the Roy Fedden sporting trial trophy, one of the oldest in the sport dating back to the mid 1930s. Uglow took the early lead on the challenging slippery sections that he never relinquished, winning for the third successive year.

John Fack, the winner of the last two events, battle back to finish second just ahead of Peter Fensom. Peter McKinney managed fourth ahead of Julian Fack and Simon Kingsley who made a costly error in the last round of nine hills.

Comparable to last week Arthur Carroll surprised many to finish best live axle in eight behind his mentor Ian Wright and win the blue live axle class, with reigning BTRDA Gold Star champion Josh Veale best red live in twelve.

Martin Grimwood won the blue independent class from Pat Henson who had a great day. The new Rookie class saw four battle it out with former Gold Star winning passengers Kiel Wright and Sandy Veale both driving and fighting each other in comparable old Sherpa’s. Young Wright won finishing in twentieth.
