WEST DORSET TROPHY TRIAL
Just over 100 riders contested the latest West Dorset Trial, held as usual on land at North Poorton and Hooke Park. Weather was good so scores were reasonable in all the classes.
Tom Moss continued his quest to retain the Southern Centre Championship with a score of 16 over the two laps of twenty sections. Second place, on 30 marks was evergreen Brian Francis, showing many younger experts how it should be done
The Clubman Expert class was headed by long time Southern Centre past master Gary Tarrant, taking the win from Robert Hoyles with one more clean. Both riders having lost 25 marks. Clubman honours went to Colin Bennett four marks ahead of Shaun Francis, with local man Ray Samways one more mark adrift.
Ten over 50s tackled the B route, regular contestant Tony Chalk heading the list five marks better than Graham King, local man Lee Wiggins taking third place eight marks behind the leader. Club member Shamus Doohan was best over 50 on the C route some way ahead of another local lad Paul Rogers.
Matthew Caulkett was the lone Pre 65 with a respectable score of 60. The new Sportsman class was topped by Matty Brown, some way ahead of runner up Scott Rigler. The Twinshock win went to Antony Billingham ahead of Committee member Paul Brown. Keith Knight headed the novices on 28, four better than Adam Montacute. Ollie Gundry was the only youth on the B route, while Jack Edwards was best of three youths on the C route losing just 5 marks
Top marks to the marking out team for some first class sections. To all the observers for their dedication and Theresa Roads for another very comprehensive results sheet.
Finally our sincere thanks to The Earl of Sandwich, Mike Fooks and Fooks Brothers and the managment at Hooke Park for the use of the land for what many consider is one of the best venues in the Southern Centre
