Cotswold Clouds

Dean Partington won the Cotswold Clouds on 5 February in his DP Wasp. Aaron Haizelden was 2nd overall in his Reliant Scimitar SS and everyone needs to watch out if he ever turns out in a Class 8 car.

Once again Stroud and DMC put on a well supported and hugely popular event which still retains many of its historic hills.

Competitors rated it a very tough, but not rough, event and there were some telephone number scores when the final results were published.

However, overall winner Dean Partington only lost marks on two hills in his Class 8 DP Wasp. The experienced Dean was chased home by two of the younger participants in the sport, Aaron Haizelden and Craig Allen, displaying their mastery of Clerk of the Course Carl Talbots difficult sections.
