The eyes have it! Kathy Martin is determined as Dave Cook  pictures her on Telfs Challenge on her way to second overall. After the event she loaded up and drove down to Devon to compete on the Chairmans Trial the next day.

Fellside AC under Clerk of the Course Myke Pocock were able to return to some of the events traditional sections after the forestry work of recent years. There was sufficient dampness to make the sections competitive and the results went down to the wire.

Kathy Martin was leading motorcycle at the foot of the last section, the infamous Sandale. Her nearest rival, Tony Whitehead cleaned it on his KTM but the six Kathy dropped left them both on eight and the trophy went to Tony as he was faster on the Special Tests.
