Snow meant a slippy start to Cam­bridge Car Club’s Roger Holmes Trial. Christo­pher Pet­titt and Robin Howard got off to fly­ing starts, with Pet­titt clean­ing the first set of tests and Howard drop­ping just one point. Pet­titt took the win.

Ben Cut­ting over­came an early lead by Han­nah El­lis in Class 2A for the vic­tory. A trio of Hill­man Imps had their own bat­tle at the top of Class 3. Dave Oliver led them home.

The com­bi­na­tion of Pakie Duffy and Evin Hughes in­creased their lead in the Ir­ish Na­tional Nav­i­ga­tion Trial Cham­pi­onship by tak­ing a five­mark win over Der­mot Whel­ton and Mark Mccarthy in the 1000 Shakes event based in Macroom. Alan and Ge­orge Shin­nors helped com­plete an­other Subaru Im­preza clean sweep in third. The win­ners took the lead on the se­cond of four time cards and weren’t chal­lenged.

A pair of nar­row vic­to­ries in Water­ford for Steven Fer­gu­son ex­tended his lead to seven points in his quest for a sixth suc­ces­sive Hewi­son Ir­ish Au­totest ti­tle in Car­rick-on-suir. On Satur­day, the Ty­rone driver ended the 12 tests 1.6s ahead of Ea­monn Byrne. On Sun­day, Fer­gu­son’s win­ning mar­gin was 2.1s over Robin Lyons.
