Ev­ery­one’s Happy

Classic Trial - - TELEVISION YOUTH -

The fi­nal would be run in the re­verse di­rec­tion over the same eight haz­ards, with eight rid­ers qual­i­fy­ing in the B Class and nine in the C Class.

As the reign­ing Bri­tish Cham­pi­ons, both Scar­lett and Clinkard made no mis­takes in the fi­nal to take the first ever Ju­nior Kick­start ti­tles to add to their grow­ing list of sil­ver­ware.

All the kids had en­joyed the event and pro­moter Nick Brit­tain was over the moon. The event had run very smoothly with only a few mi­nor tech­ni­cal is­sues for the an­tic­i­pated TV show­ing. The event was tele­vised over two evenings on the BBC and at­tracted an es­ti­mated au­di­ence of 12 mil­lion view­ers. The BBC was very happy with the view­ing fig­ures and over the next few years it be­came a reg­u­lar fix­ture, shown once a year on main­stream TV.
