CAR TRIAL North conquers the slippery conditions
Rupert North won the Ernest Owen Car Trial at Catton Park with a fabulous afternoon drive to dominate the front-wheel-drive class in slippery conditions.
North used the agility of his Rover Mini to open out a big class lead, which eased his path to the overall win.
Fellow Yorkshireman and reigning BTRDA Gold Star champion Henry Kitching won the new car class as he gradually extended the category lead over reigning double British champion Mark Hoppe to finish second overall.
Barrie Parker revelled in the wet conditions that limited the scope of the site for the new organising team. Parker was superb in his Westfield to claim the rear-wheel-drive class.
