This years Guy Fawkes had a new Clerk of the Course and a new venue. Dave Smith taking the event to Mile Tree Farm for the first time, assisted by David Jackson as Secretary of the Meeting.

There was an excellent entry, despite being depleted with quite a few non-starters. In the end 31 competitors signed on to tackle Dave Smiths sections. Although it was his first time as Guy Fawkes C of the C Dave has a lot of experience of the venue, having organised CSMA events there.

The early morning dew made the first round very tricky, with grip at a premium on the wet grass and adverse cambers. JP started the way he was to go on, taking an early lead, dropping only 16 marks in the slippery conditions and being the only car to clean the steep bank on Andy Clarke’s sections six.There was a little more grip for the second round as the ground dried up. Even so Dave Smith dropped the steep bank on hill six .

Mike Pearson had the lowest score here, dropping only nine and pulling a mark back from JP. This round thinned out the entry a bit when seven drivers retired. These included Arnold Lane and Martin Cheshire whose much trialled and autotested Peugeot 106 broke its diff in such a big way it went through the casing. This happened on the final bank on hill five.

The same section also claimed Dave Oliver and Simon Benoy/Mark Ibbotson’s Imp, both of which broke drive donuts. Dave retired but Simon and Mark managed to change theirs in time to continue.

After lunch it was Ross Nuten who was to drop the fewest marks on round three, only loosing one mark. JP and Mike Pearson were not far behind though, only two marks apart as they started the last round. John was better than Mike on hill two but Mike cleaned hill three while JP dropped two and was only one mark ahead overall.

They both cleaned all the remaining sections so that was the way it finished, victory going to JP by one mark. However, this was all John needed for a personal trip,e. Gold on The Edinburgh and Best Overall on the Brickhill and Guy Fawkes Trials.
