Ray Ferguson Best Car on Yorkshire Dales

Sam Holmes and Ray were the only cars that had a clean sheet so the result came down to Test Times

Stuart and Kieran Bartlett are a study in concentration as they take on the challenge of Bluebell Wood, a Class Eight only section this year. Stuart and Sam Phillips were the only cars to go clear but the two Stuart dropped on the previous section at Brimham Wood dropped them out of contention for the overall win. Photo by Dave Cook. You can purchase prints and Hi-Res downloads for this and many other trials on Dave’s Website.

The Yorkshire Dales was again held in glorious weather but this years dry route wasn’t considered as rough as last year.

Both Ray Ferguson (Class 7 Liege) and Sam Holmes (Class 4 Beetle) ended the day with clean sheets with Ray taking the Premier Award on test times.

Fellow Liege driver Barry Redmayne was third but driving his Suzuki X90 in Class Five this time.

Dean Partington was on a clean sheet until the penultimate section, the Class Eight only Bluebell Wood, when he dropped six marks.

Mike Hiley was best motorcycle.

Dry Yorkshire Dales

Both Motorcycle and Car Categories had low scores as the sections were bone dry and there was a lot of grip everywhere. John Kenny was best Motorcycle, besting the versatile Steve Kingston on his Class A machine as opposed to the familiar MG Midget. Dean Partington was best car.

The dry sections put a strain on transmissions, Clive Kalber (Tucker Peake Pop), Lee Peck (Dutton Melos) and Dave Haizelden (Reliant Scimitar) all having their machinery wilt under the strain.

Sword Point 1 took away a few car clean sheets with a restart for 7 & 8 and a deviation from the main track for all proving problematical.

Both Dean Partington (DP Wasp) and David Golightly (Morton and Brett) only dropped two marks, Dean on Sword Point 2 and David on Watergate 2. The overall win going to Dean on test times.
