Duncan Stephens dominates ahead of Ian Wright and Steve Courts.
Duncan Stephens starred at the Jacobean Sporting Trial on Sunday, excelling in the early damp conditions to win on nearly a third of the score of MSA championship leader Ian Wright. Conditions soon dried and Steve Courts finished in third and top live axle car just ahead of the chasing pack of Ian Bell, who rued a wrong gear on his first hill, finishing fourth four points ahead of John Ridley who won the intermediate class from Stuart Beare in eighth. Stuart was pleased to get the better of Monty Peters in their own little personal battle of Sussex drivers! Arthur Carroll won the novice class from Jim Davidson, in a promising seventeenth of forty competitors.
