JOHN LAMPKIN RE­TURNS

Classic Trial - - NEWS -

The Beta UK im­porter John Lampkin made a re­turn to na­tional and in­ter­na­tional tri­als rid­ing a Fan­tic 300. A front run­ner in both the World and Bri­tish tri­als cham­pi­onships in the 80s rid­ing SWM and Arm­strong CCM, he then made a move to the Ital­ian Fan­tic team. He won his only World round in the USA in 1983 on the 240 Fan­tic, with his high­est cham­pi­onship fin­ish in 1984 on the 300 Fan­tic where he fin­ished fifth.

He rode the Lakes Two Day in the Club­man class to a very cred­itable tenth de­spite some ma­chine trou­bles on the Fan­tic. His in­ter­na­tional re­turn was at the Costa Brava Two Day. Very much a tri­als ‘anorak’, it’s fan­tas­tic to wit­ness the skill, which is still in abun­dance, and the en­thu­si­asm for the sport from this past mas­ter.
