PISTON SLAP JULY 2019 JOHN POATE TRIAL. Another good entry for our first closed trial, 46 came under starters orders. We had half a dozen youths. Unfortunately Batcombe is not the easiest of venues and most found the going between sections a bit daunting. I hope they will turn up again for the Boxer as the Powerstock venue is much easier. Ben Lovelace made a welcome return across the “border” and took the Premier with 4 marks lost from Grant Laming on 8. Old hand Stephen Bryant took the Clubman honours with a loss of 3. Marcell Perrett was best Novice on 11 from Paul Gillard on 19. Tony Lucas and Lee Wiggins fought a day long battle in Veteran B with Tony coming out on top 3 marks to 5. It was even closer in Veteran C Brian Wyles taking top spot from Charlie Harrison by just one mark. Two new Veterans contested the D route Barry Bust taking an easy win over Justin Warren. Two of the youths completed the course with local lad Jack Edwards taking the win over Oset mounted Ollie Gundry. Five riders opted to ride the 50/50 routes. Toby Fry was best of three on A&B route while Richard Fry had a sizable gap over Angus Dodge on B&C. Paul Brown was the only Twin Shock but any opposition would have been hard put to beat him as he was the only competitor to remain clean. Our usual thanks to Richard and the marking out team, to all the observers and of course grateful thanks to Dawn Griffin for making us welcome again. BOXER TRIAL SUN JULY 21st. Our next closed trial will be run at Browns Farm Powerstock by kind permission of the Crutchley family. As mentioned above this venue is perfectly suited for the less experienced riders with flat grassland between all sections. There are three possible routes to get to the venue. The old established turn off the A356 Maiden Newton - Crewkerne road ( the radio mast is no longer there) approx 4 miles from Maiden Newton, then follow the Powerstock signs. DO NOT TAKE THE FIRST TURNING OFF A35 INTO TOLLER PORCORUM. Competitors coming from the East can stay on A35 after Dorchester bypass then take the second turning on the right along the old Roman Road ( where the pallets are stacked) straight on to Eggardon Hill then straight on again sign post Powerstock UNFIT FOR HGVs. Turn sharp left in the centre of Powerstock down past the school to the T junction and Castrol arrow. For those with Sat Nav the school Postcode is DT6 3TB. Folk coming from the West should take A3066 off Bridport bypass towards Beaminster. Take first right about 100 yards after the Gore Cross roundabout ( by the Trading Estate) on the outskirts of the town and again follow the signs for Powerstock. You will find the trials field before you get to the village. Start time is 11.00am. The same marking out gang will do the necessary again so sections will be very reasonable.
