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.
