Ju­lian Fack won his first sport­ing trial in over six years on a tightly con­tested Pres­i­dents Sport­ing Trial at Peters­field in Hamp­shire last Sun­day.

The MSA, BTRDA and ASWMC Cham­pi­onships com­bined and the top five in the event were cov­ered by just four points.

Fol­low­ing heavy overnight rain, Ju­lian Fack’s younger brother Jerome took the early lead hav­ing sorted out grem­lins on his MSR ma­chine.

Fack Jr held the lead at lunch by a cou­ple of points from Stu­art Beare, who was in the hunt for the win af­ter lunch un­til he slid back­wards into a tree. He nev­er­the­less man­aged to re­tain sec­ond and the in­ter­me­di­ate class win.

As con­di­tions dried, the best fi­nal round from Ju­lian Fack helped him take the win by just two points. Jerome slipped back to third, while Paul Price was just a point fur­ther back, with Josh Veale top live-axle car in fifth place.

Mike Read­ings won the novice class from Pat Hen­son in eighth over­all. Neil Crom­mey won the club­man sec­tion.
