Eight drivers turned up for a ‘taste’ of sporting trials thanks to the efforts of Julian Fack and a few friends who loaned their cars in spite of the state of the ground.
We had 8 “newbies” plus one car owner, and they all said they greatly enjoyed it. One couple are preparing an old Cannon for Historic Sporting Trials and another couple are seriously considering buying a Trials car.
It was obvious that the ground would not support a full trial on Sunday and we had to move our little training sections regularly after a few cars had passed over the ground, as the underlying water squished out from the soil.
Let’s hope that the grass recovers quickly with the sections being laid out at the very far end of the field as far from the Hill climb as possible.
