SPORTING TRIAL Back to the top for Fack after six years
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.
