Ross Norman in his Deere
Special wins the Kryle Trophy at the Ross & District Motor Club. With only
4 points lost on Ropers and the other sections were clears.
The trial set in the beautiful Forest of Dean, fine
drizzle continued till the sun shone in the afternoon. Sun was too late
for the later competitors and penalty points were soon racked up. As the
sections turned into a mud of whipped cream The Kryle is like doing
Riverton, Crackington, Tillerton, Simms and Litton Slack over & over. You
certainly get your monies worth on this trial.
Retired was Dave Shurbsole with a
cylinder head gasket blown, Sticker Martin shock absorbers broke,
Carl Talbot suspension. Others were Steve Louks, Rick Neale and Derek
Tyler. Andrew Brown who was having trouble with his Marlin on the Lands
End withdrew the weekend before, must have been very disappointed not to
Simon Groves had a rear puncture at Goldsmith Wood,
but John Parsons could triple that here, as he had three nails in his
front tyre! Ian Davis did well for the Falcon club as won the T.C.
Longford Trophy. Keith Oakes & his Mrs. were there to make the numbers up
& had a brilliant day out.
Well run & marshalled & the ladies at the finish
prepared a delightful meal.
