Richmond Motor Club held their GE Brown & Son Trophy Trial at Park Rash, just above Kettlewell, last Sunday.

The day was dry, but slightly cloudy and cool, making for good riding conditions round the 3 laps of 12 sections.

Richard Sadler had a brilliant ride, dropping only 13 marks after a slack 5 on lap 1, as well as a couple of 3s and 1s. Tom Middleton came in second overall, dropping 33 marks, followed by Ryan Brown on 38 marks lost.

On the Clubman A (Green) Course, it was a close call in the top three. Tom Rennison came in first place, losing 16 marks, closely followed by Graham Tales and Paul Gravestock on 18 and 19 marks respectively.

For the Youths on the Clubman A Course, Jack Vasey led the way on 41 marks lost, with George Hird following behind on 43 marks lost. Charlie Petty came in third, losing 59 marks.

An impressive ride from Adrian Harrison on the Clubman B Course landed him in first place with only 6 marks lost. Paul Wearmouth and Darren Mitchell rounded off the overall Clubman top 3, losing 16 and 17 marks respectively.

Richmond Motor Club would like to make a special mention to the three riders on the Youth B Course, who persevered round a tricky and long trial. Josh Dent finished with 67 marks lost, Oliver Petty on 72 marks and Louie Mcgee on 93 marks lost.

The Club would like to thank the landowner, observers, Clerk of Course and helpers, Secretary and everybody else involved in the running of the trial for giving up their time to help the Club. Thank you to riders for entering and taking part.

NEXT TRIAL: RMC is looking forward to running the Mintex Youth Time and Observation Trial (AKA “Mini Scott Trial”) on Sunday 10th September.
