Uglow has a perfect trialling afternoon
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.
