Wright cleans up tri­als again

Motor Sport News - - Sporting Scene -

Ian Wright led the JB Tay­lor Sport­ing Trial all day with a mas­ter­ful dis­play to win by 20 points. He be­came the seventh dif­fer­ent win­ner in this sea­son’s open­ing eight events.

Con­di­tions proved chal­leng­ing, with the un­for­giv­ing bracken and blue­bells mean­ing a spun wheel stopped the car quickly. Roland Uglow re­took the Bri­tish cham­pi­onship lead by hold­ing sec­ond place all day, but a poor fi­nal round nearly dropped him down the or­der.

Dun­can Stephens had a slow start, hav­ing won last time out a month ago, but a much im­proved last round saw him steadily climb up to third, just two points be­hind Uglow. ● Bar­rie Parker won the Fal­con Mo­tor Club’s Iv­inghoe Car Trial in Bed­ford­shire by a clear mar­gin on Sun­day, hav­ing dom­i­nated his class all day.
