The single venue event in Bonyalva Woods was a trial of two halves, dry in the morning and wet in the afternoon. It soon turned into a Class Eight battle between Simon and Paul Merson who were level until midway through the morning when Paul dropped four on Bonyalva Rise where Simon went clear and slowly increased his lead as the day went on, finishing on 19 compared to Pauls 27.

Organisers David Haizelden and Keith Sanders believe in tough trials and maintained their reputation with another well supported event. Their handicapping worked out well with the top ten cars coming  from five different classes. Clive Kalber, out in his Dutton Melos, came close to challenging Simon Groves overall win. However, Clive dropped two extra marks on the muddy Upper Kingswell making a total of three for the event where Simon went clear.

With the first three cars in the Clubmans Category it was Aaron Haizelden who claimed maximum Wheelspin points in fourth place overall on 11 marks.

Tristan Barnicoat was the best Solo with a five point margin over John Luckett. The leading outfits were close all day with Alan Wear coming out on top by one mark.

Demanding Dunmere

Simon Groves was the best car in his Troll on a tough event

Videos by Duncan Stephens, Ross Cookman and Liam Hartley

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
