Motor Sport News - - Sporting Scene - Re­sults Dun­can Stephens

Roland Uglow re­tained the Stu­art But­ter­field Sport­ing Trial tro­phy last week­end, win­ning by clean­ing all 32 sec­tions to take the lead in the Bri­tish cham­pi­onship.

Six crews were still clean by lunchtime so the sec­tions were tough­ened up, but that still failed to stop Uglow’s charge.

Dave Rance chal­lenged and only failed one steep sec­tion to fin­ish se­cond. He was ahead of Richard Sharp, who also won the in­ter­me­di­ate class. Sharp has now taken the lead in the BTRDA cham­pi­onship.

Mark Milne had just re­built the prop­shaft of his Crossle but drove out of a sec­tion to slip to fourth ahead of Boyd Web­ster.

Jeff Ar­mis­tead was top live-axle in eighth, while Ian Full­wood won the novice class just out­side the top 10 over­all from au­totester Stu­art Per­ren.

Lo­cal driver Ray Lane won the Basil Elk­ing­ton Car Trial last Sun­day in Kent, the se­cond round of the Bri­tish cham­pi­onship, hav­ing led the front-wheel-drive class all day. Rupert North closed in dur­ing the af­ter­noon to se­cure se­cond in class in his sim­i­lar Mini.
