Bryan Walker convincingly won the rescheduled Stone Trough Sporting Trial, the opening round of the second half of the season. NPTCC postponed their event in March due to snow and Gale Hall proved a fabulous challenge with an added rain shower at lunchtime. Walker led all day to finish well clear of a returning Simon Kingsley. Peter Fensom completed the podium ahead of British championship leader Ian Wright who had to recover from a catastrophic ten on the first round. A large gap to Richard Sharp saw the remaining six of the top ten covered by just ten points ahead of George Watson, Jerome Fack and Stuart Beare. Barry Hogg won the intermediate independent class just inside the top ten overall just behind best clubman Jeff Armistead who was best live axle. Chris Hodgson continued in his first year back into the sport with veteran Robin Jager passengering to win the Rookie class from Mike Storrar.
