THE WESSEX PLANT HIRE BRITISH CHAMPIONSHIP 2018
There’s still plenty to play for in this year’s series with three rounds remaining, as the worst score from the proposed 11 rounds can be dropped. It’s a TRS one-two in the Class A, with the four wins from Josh and Luke Golding giving them the upper hand. In Class B Intermediate Nigel and Gracie-Mae Scott have pulled away from the chasing Tony James and Jamie Howe on the Beta with five wins from eight starts. Paul Fishlock and Debbie Merrell know they must start winning to be in with any chance to catch Class C Clubmen championship leaders Jack Corlett and Beth Thomas. It’s sad to see that no one has been in the Class D Newcomers’ class to challenge Elliott and Graham Tickner on their Fantic, as this is where newcomers to the sport of sidecar trials can make an easy entry into the sport.
