Basil Elkington Trial

Event Report

Local driver Ray Lane won the Basil Elkington Car Trial in Kent, the second round of the championship, having lead the front wheel drive class all day. Yorkshire's Rupert North closed in during the afternoon to secure second in class in his similar Mini, having trailed his daughter Evie at lunch. Evie, in her first national trial as a driver, slipped to fourth in class during the afternoon. Mark Hoppe won the new car class from Nick Pollitt, who had a much improved day in his Vauxhall Corsa on the bumpy slippery sections. As the day progressed, conditions rapidly dried in the Kent sunshine. The rear wheel drive class saw Nigel Weeks delighted to take a narrow victory over Dave Oliver by just a single point, while Gemma Weeks took the junior award.
