John Fack be­came the ninth dif­fer­ent win­ner of the Sport­ing Trial sea­son at the Gloster event on Sun­day.

Fack hadn’t won for two years since claim­ing the Bri­tish cham­pi­onship and ended the year with an over­all win. His iden­ti­cal twin Jerome had be­gun his own cam­paign with vic­tory ear­lier in the year.

A heavy overnight frost made for ex­tremely treach­er­ous con­di­tions and a high-scor­ing day with John Fack and Roland Uglow lead­ing the way, the pair fin­ish­ing just seven marks apart. Reign­ing BTRDA Gold Star cham­pion Ian Veale com­pleted the podium a fur­ther 11 be­hind.

The next five drivers were cov­ered by just three points with Paul Price fourth and top in­ter­me­di­ate driver, ty­ing with Andy Wilks in his sim­i­lar CAP.

A stun­ning drive by club com­peti­tor Phil Haines in his live axle Fack­sim­ile helped him tie with them in sixth ahead of mul­ti­ple cham­pion Ian Wright.

Jerome Fack fin­ished as sec­ond in­ter­me­di­ate driver just out­side the top 10 over­all. Mike Baker won the novice class from Ian Full­wood.
