Ernest Owen Memorial

Event Report

Trevor Moffatt won the Ernest Owen car trial by the narrowest of margins from Mark Hoppe. Moffatt dominated Class 1 all day to open up a fifteen point class lead over Nick Pollitt, despite hitting a seven post.

Meanwhile in the rear wheel drive class, first round winner Dick Glossop was initially off the pace but managed to claw back to second place, but couldn’t beat Mark Hoppe who finished second overall, ruing a two on the last hill. Lunch saw a three way tie with Hoppe, Barrie Parker and Steve Courts in the class but expert afternoons by Hoppe and Glossop claimed top class positions.

Alastair Moffatt arrived with younger brother’s (John) championship winning Nova and showed everyone a clean pair of tracks to lead the front wheel drive class all day to gain an eight point win over Garry Preston and Rupert North a further four points behind.

Uniquely no cars were double driven in the whole entry, and Charlie Knifton won the specials class in his classic trials VW Buggy.
