Ernest Owen Car Trial

Event Report

Rupert North won the Ernest Owen Car Trial at Catton Park with a fabulous afternoon drive to dominate the front wheel drive class in extremely slippery conditions. North used the agility of his little Rover Mini to open out a big class lead, facilitating the overall win. Fellow Yorkshireman and reigning BTRDA Gold Star champion, Henry Kitching, won the new car class as he gradually extended the class lead over reigning double British champion Mark Hoppe, to finish second overall. Meanwhile Barrie Parker in his Westfield revelled in the wet conditions that limited the scope of the site drastically for the new organising team to win the rear wheel drive class, dropping over thirty less points than Hillman Imp driver Dave Oliver.
