Kingsley's Hat-Trick doesn't deny Uglow championship
Stone Trough Sporting Trial
Yorkshire Sports car Club
MSA, BTRDA, and NPTCC
Simon Kingsley won his third trial on the trot at his local Stone Trough sporting trial beating the twenty two others competitors, however second place was enough for Roland Uglow and regular passenger Laura Wilks to retain the British championship with three rounds remaining. Seven drivers were still pointless at lunch, so hills were toughened up and pressures increased, whereby a poor round saw Uglow drop all his points for the day on the next seven hills.
George Watson had a good day to complete the podium a point ahead of intermediate class winner Richard Sharp who had Bryan Walker hot on his heels another point behind. Barry Hogg finished runner up in the intermediate class in sixth overall, while Andy Wilks made the trip to Yorkshire for the first time and was left ruing a costly mistake on the first round.
Mike Salton excelled again to finish in eighth, top live axle and best novice, ahead of Ian Fullwood who was just outside the top ten overall on a day where all hills were climbed by someone in the entry.

Unfortunately Kentish Border Car Club’s November Sporting Trial will not be taking place on 6 November 2016, nor will it be running for the foreseeable future.
We do however look forward to the Club’s J B Taylor Trial in 2017.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news guys.
