Pete Fear Sporting Trial
Ross & District Motorsports Club
MSA, BTRDA, ASWMC Championships
Richard Sharp won his maiden national sporting trial at the Pete Fear trial on Sunday, in dry conditions. Sharp took up the sport five years ago following a training day having shown great skill from the offset realised a dream of collecting a BTRDA spoon with son Joe passengering. At lunch local lad Alastair Moffatt (and British Autotest champion) led back in his old Facksimile by three points but a couple of slips just after lunch relegated him to second, leaving him very disappointed. Reigning British champion Roland Uglow had another quiet day to complete the podium after a poor second round and top expert driver with the leading two being intermediates. The next four were very close with Julian Fack, Peter Fensom, George Watson and Andy Wilks all covered by just five points. Jerome Fack also tied with Peter McKinney who returned after eighteen months away rebuilding his car with son passengering for the first time. Colin Flashman won the novice class completing the top ten with Pat Henson runner up just behind.
