CAR TRIAL North con­quers the slip­pery con­di­tions

Motor Sport News - - Sporting Scene - Re­sult Dun­can Stephens

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.
