Motor Sport News - - Sporting Scene - Dun­can Stephens

John Fack made the trip from Corn­wall to Kent to win the lat­est ad­di­tion to the BTRDA Sport­ing Tri­als cham­pi­onship, the Tul­leys Trial.

Fack won the trial on the last round of runs from venue owner Stu­art Beare. Beare took the lead on the first round and tied at lunch. He even­tu­ally fin­ished sec­ond just three points back, with Peter Mckin­ney com­plet­ing the podium.

Arthur Car­roll sur­prised many with a fab­u­lous fourth place in his live-axle Sherpa and he was also the best blue­class driver. Paul Price fin­ished fifth in a three-way tie with Ge­orge Wat­son and Mark Howse, who was top club­man.

Keith San­ders won the 70th run­ning of the Bod­min Trial which at­tracted nearly 40 en­tries. San­ders, in his Reliant SS1, took the win af­ter heavy overnight rain made con­di­tions slip­pery. With two hills left, last year’s vic­tor Mar­tyn Harry’s dif­fer­en­tial broke, which handed the class win and very nearly the over­all win to Dun­can Stephens in his Dut­ton Me­los.

Stephens beat fel­low Me­los driver Philip Thomas by a slen­der three points for the class. Tris White beat Ryan Tonkin on a tie break in the spe­cials class hav­ing dropped the same points on the hills. Matt Facey won the front-en­gined saloon car class in his freshly built BMW Com­pact.
