Kathy does the Northern -Chairmans Double

Aaron Haizelden and John Luckett won the big trophies but Kathy Martin will be remembered for riding two big trials, hundreds of miles apart, during the weekend.

Dave was a well known driver in local trials in the Midlands and South East, passengered by his wife Audrey. He mostly drove rear engined cars. In recent years he campaigned his blue and white Imp but had also owned Skodas and the ex Mike Stephens VW 1302s. He will be sorely missed.

Wasps Swarm Northern

It was a Wasp one-two at Fellside AC’s Northern Trial on 21 February. Both Dean Partington and Mike Chatwin finished with five marks, victory going to Dean on test times.

As Myke Pocock would say it was a very clarty Northern Trial this year. The rain generated a lot of mud but it didn’t stop this being a low scoring trial with the leading competitors dropping very few marks.
