Event: Pen­nine Sport­ing Trial Or­gan­iser: Airedale and Pen­nine Mo­tor Club When: April 24 Starters: 23.

Four months into his re­turn to Sport­ing Tri­als, Stu­art Beare won the Pen­nine in Der­byshire, with son Sam pas­sen­ger­ing.

Beare has only won one trial be­fore, back in 2009, and be­came the eighth win­ner of the sea­son.

Peter Fen­som took the early lead, be­fore Beare took over from lunch.

Reign­ing Bri­tish cham­pion Roland Uglow had a dread­ful sec­ond round as a rain shower mas­sively al­tered hills, but he showed his flair on the fi­nal eight hills to climb back to sec­ond over­all. Andy Wilks was tied for the lead at lunch, but an afternoon mis­take dropped him to fourth.

Af­ter a great first round, Bryan Walker slipped back to fifth place at the end. He just beat Boyd Web­ster, who won the in­ter­me­di­ate class.

Jeff Ar­mis­tead won the clubman class in sev­enth over­all and top-live axle, ahead of iden­ti­cal twins Jerome and John Fack in iden­ti­cal cars.

The novice class was won by Pat Hen­son from Mike Sal­ton.
