Classic Trial - - CONTENTS - Words: Yoomee • Pic­tures: Brian Holder and The Nick Ni­cholls Col­lec­tion at Mor­tons Ar­chive

Bring­ing a level of pro­fes­sion­al­ism that would make him un­touch­able, Sammy Miller to­tally dom­i­nated the event, lead­ing from start to fin­ish as he con­tin­ued to lead the Span­ish Ar­mada with Bul­taco chang­ing the face of tri­als. The chal­lenge for a win from a ma­chine man­u­fac­tured in Great Bri­tain came from Dave Row­land, who worked won­ders on his 175cc BSA Ban­tam. Try as he might though, the Der­byshire based rider could not close the 16 mark win­ning mar­gin on Miller. In an em­bar­rass­ing sit­u­a­tion for the man­age­ment of Greeves Den­nis Jones came home in third po­si­tion but was not a mem­ber of the win­ning man­u­fac­tur­ers’ team. The best new­comer award went to Martin Lamp­kin on the BSA fol­lowed by Paul Dunk­ley on the new Chee­tah.
