Ivinghoe Spring Trial

Event Report

Mark Hoppe continued his championship winning form of last year at the first event of the season to win the Ivinghoe Car Trial for the first time. Extremely dry conditions saw Hoppe and Dave Oliver still clear at lunchtime, but a bumpy section just after saw Hoppe take the initiative after Oliver’s Imp failed at a costly nine post. Hoppe won the rear wheel drive class by six in the end which proved enough for overall.  Garry Preston won the front wheel drive class, making no mistakes all day, to beat Colin Reid by nine points and take second overall with Rupert North a few points back in third. Meanwhile in the new car class Trevor Moffatt opened a decisive lead to complete the podium overall from Barrie Parker with veteran John Wadsworth third.
