Barrier Parker won the Wye Valley car trial, surprisingly for the first time. In dry, very hot conditions Parker's Toyota MR2 dominated the new car class. John Moffatt won the highly competitive front wheel drive class with a superb morning to take a close second overall. Dave Oliver obliterated his class on less than a third of the next persons score, while classic trialer Paul Bartleman had a day long battle with Colin Weeks to win the highly modified class in his immaculate Mk1 Escort.

We know we can rely on Simon Harris and his team at Ross & DMS to put on a first class event at their challenging site near Ledbury.
The club is the first in our Car Trials championship to offer, as an option to paper, pen and cheque, a wholly electronic entry and payment system. There follows notes from R&DMS concerning this process.
This year, entries may be submitted electronically. Entrants should complete the attached 'active' entry form on screen, save it and e-mail it to the entries secretary as an attachment. You will then send the entry fee to the Club by BACS. Entries will be acknowledged once the form and payment has been received. Full details are in ASR10 of the regs, but please note for those who habitually enter close to the closing date that the entry fee *must* be received before entries close. You may enter by post enclosing a cheque in the traditional way, of course.
Regs and entry forms are also on the Club website www.rossmotorsports co.uk
The event is the Inter Association Car Trial and at least six Associations are taking steps to form one or more teams. Rules for that are in the attached event regulations.
