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
