Dave Oliver returned back to his Hillman Imp for the Warwickshire Car Trial and drove superbly to win the event overall for the fifth time in six years at his favourite venue. Duncan Stephens won his class convincingly but could only manage second overall just ahead of Barrie Parker, who won his class by nearly ninety points. John Moffatt had a good afternoon where conditions dried substantially to claw back second in the class in his Nova but its previous owner, John Ludford, competing in class 4, just beat him overall.
