Snow Hits the Torbay

Craig Allen narrowly pipped Ian Facey to the best car award

Dave Cook captured Jeremy Salter brushing the bank on Simms in his Suzuki X90. Considering the conditions there were a surprising number of cleans on the old hill. There are many more of Dave’s Torbay Photos on his website where you can purchase prints and hi res downloads

Snow hit the country over the weekend and many competitors were unable to get to the start.

Those that made it successfully were greeted by deteriorating conditions as the snow settled and the organisers decided to cut the event short after Tipley.

Despite the conditions competitors enjoyed the challenge of a tough, competitive event. Craig Allen (1300 Beetle) narrowly held off Ian Facey (BMW) for best car. Score relieving was employed on some of the sections but Craig and Ian would still have been one, two without it.

Despite the snow blanketing much of the country the Western Peninsula was clear and Camel Vale were able to run their single venue Camel Heights event in Dunmere Woods between Bodmin and Wadebridge.

The conditions weren’t easy though and the mud made the tough sections very difficult. “Proper Hard Core Trialling” as it was described by one competitor.

Class Eight dominated the podium positions amongst the cars, Simon Groves emerging victorious in his Troll.

Keelan Hancock was best Solo and Alan Keat best Sidecar
