After spending their Saturday evening’s being entertained but the fantastic Tulleys Farm Spook and Fireworks extravaganza 17 BTRDA and 14 club men arrived for the Tulleys Farm Trial. 8 sections were laid out in an unusually dry (for this time of year) Tulley’s Woods. Andrew Woodhead, who had made the long trip down from the North, found the early going to his liking (and Stuart Beares car which he was borrowing) to go clear in the first round. He continued to go well in the morning although he was pegged back at lunchtime by Arthur Carroll and Mark Howse making it a three way tie for the lead on 6 points. Andrew continued to drive steadily and came away with a superb win finishing on 11. Ian Wright forced his way up the leaderboard as he looked to wrap up his MSA championship to finish a point back in 2nd position. Arthur Carroll continued to drive well to finish third losing out on a tie break to Ian, but his excellent day was enough to secure the blue class award, with Mark Howse completing a fantastic day to finish 4th. Ross Bruce made the most of his local knowledge to finish a super 5th, beating this Autumn’s form man John Fack and Josh Veale who finished 6th and 7th respectively. Mike Storrar also made the long trip South worthwhile as he took the Rookie class honours. Congratulations to all competitors and thanks to Stuart Beare for his hospitality over the weekend.
A mention also to the 750mc club trial which took place over the same sections. This was won by Paul Brock who would have finished well inside the top 10 in the national class.
The Inter- association team trial was also contested at Tulley’s this year. This was won by team South East represented by Ian Wright, Arthur Carroll and Josh Veale.
Results to follow.
