Chris Dustow was best Solo with a clean sheet and Alan Keat best Combination.
Stewart Green was best car in his Class 8 Gruffalo and Ben Dyer best Solo in this wet event with some tough restarts.

Ian Facey emerged victorious in his Class 5 BMW Z3 with a good mix of machinery from different classes in the top ten.

The organisers were successfull in their handicapping, by which I mean Restarts and Tyre pressures, with a varied mix of cars topping the result sheet(s). Ray Ferguson had a good drive in his Class 7 Liege and was the only car outside of Class Eight to see the summit of Jack. Ray finished dropping six marks, the three on Pill Box dropping him out of contention for the top spot.
Stuart Bartlett’s challenge ended with a broken half shaft and it was fellow midlander Dean Partington who was best in Class Eight on nine. Tamar winner Ryan Tonkin also dropped nine and headed the clubmans results which Ross published separately.
Ryan Tonkin was best Car, after Aaron Haizelden received a marker penalty. Rom Dobbs was best Motorcycle.
