Several things for you to peruse this morning, firstly Tony Colman has issued the Final Centre Championship Time Trial Points tables you can find the Trials Class here  2017 Final TT Champs Trials Table   & the NonTrials class here  2017 Final TT Champs NonTrials Table

Tony comments “Hi Frank, attached are the final TT championship tables after all 6 rounds. Andy Frost had the trials class sewn up after 5 rounds so rode the non-trials class in the 6th round (which he won).      As last year it was mainly between him and Jason Hamblin.                    In the non-trials class Tom Smith was a clear championship winner. Regards, Tony Colman”               All your thanks to Tony for being “Master” of the Tables. – Ed.

Secondly, Jerry Walters has sent over the Results of the North Somerset MSC’s Ivan Manning Centre Champs. Time Trial which are here,  NSMSC Ivan Manning TTrial Results 191117.xls and says,             ‘Evening Frank,

Centre Trials Championship Tables as at 06/11/17

Hello all,

Here are Pete Dury’s updated Trials Champ Tables following Sundays Wilts Border Autumn Trophy  2017 Wessex Centre Trials Champ Tables as at 061117  Pete’s confirmed what I hinted at yesterday, that Kurt Brain is Centre Champion again. I can only echo Petes comments below:

“Hi All

Championship update attached following Sunday’s Wilts Border Autumn Trophy Trial.

With only two rounds to go, congratulations go to Kurt Brain who has won the Wessex Centre Championship for the 4th time and adds the title to his recently won Western Centre Championship. Well done Kurt.

Henry Pym has one hand on the Clubman Expert class title needing just a 4th place in one of the last two rounds to repeat last year’s class win.

The Clubman class is now a three horse race between Steve Wallwin, Charlie Newman and Tony Hayden although Steve is looking favourite at the moment.

Sean Donaghy reinforced his runaway win of the novice/sportsman class by winning yet again on Sunday to make it 5 wins on the trot.

Rich Elliot’s win on Sunday leave with just 5 points needed over the last two rounds to secure the Over 40 title while Dai Clothier is one win away from taking the Over 50 title for an amazing 6th year in a row.

As always, please let me know if you spot any errors or have any queries.   Regards    Pete Dury”

Yesterdays Wilts Border Autumn Trophy Centre Champ Trial Results, Sporting Mentions

Good Morning all,

Out to Dinner last night! Dropped off the WWilts Youth Dave Townhill Division Trophies with Robin Townhill in Bratton before going on to Clive & Helen’s in Edington to eat.These WWMC Youth Division were last awarded ten years ago & like other Clubs (?) we have many donated Trophies that don’t get used anymore so the Club has decided to dispose of them appropriately – where we know who the donor was,  we try to contact them & return them to the family or, – if they do not want them, just to “get rid”

Anyway, a super Trial at Breakheart, nice weather too, apart from one brief shower of rain as a cold front came over. For the first time Wilts Border used the ACU online Entry system & when Theresa closed it at 15:00hrs on Saturday she had 45 entries. On the day she had 30 more! One clear advantage of the system is that the Secretary of the Meeting only has to get the pre entered riders to sign on as only Licenced/RegisteredACU Members can get through the online entry system. It also shows how many people don’t let Organisers know of their intent to ride.

Centre 2018 Trials Champion in Waiting Kurt Brain was Expert winner on 11 marks lost, without any 5’s & only Sections 3 & 12 taking marks from him on more than 1 lap. I think that this win will assure him of this years Championship, but we’ll wait for Pete Dury to issue his Points Table update to confirm. As an aside Congratulations to Kurt on being this years Western Centre Trials Champion, ending Simon Welch’s long reign. It went to the final Wye Valley Traders Round though, where Kurt needed to be R/up to become Champ irrespective of Simon’s result. As it turned out Kurt won & Simon could only place 4th.

The Autumn Trophy Results are here: WBorder Autumn Trophy Results 051117

I’ve a number of sporting achievements to mention.

First, we don’t often mention the straight line boys in the Centre, but Martin Bracey has for four consecutive years won both the 125cc Racing & the Classic Japanese Racing class of the NSA (National Sprint Association) Champs. The RS Aprilia runs in the low 14seconds at around 93mph over the line & the Honda CB250RS gets him to the line in the mid 15seconds at around 88mph.

Victoria Payne has placed 5th in this years ACU Ladies Trials Championship. Congratulations!

Congratulations also to Todd Kellett on winning the Beach Race again this year. brother Ty  took the last Finishers certificate THE “R.WOODWARD WILSON” MEMORIAL TROPHY. LAST OFFICIAL FINISHER ON TIME.) at the Scott Trial & fellow SW Centre rider Chris Shorey took the THE “S.HUGHES”TROPHY.OLDEST OFFICIAL FINISHER OVER THE AGE OF 40. Chris has some record up there, it was his 37th consecutive ride, & he doesn’t ride week in week out.

I mentioned Joe Millard a couple of weeks back, well he’s now  this years British Sidecar Cross Champion together with driver Stuart Brown. More congratulations.

The British Sidecar Trials Championship hotted up at the last Round, with just one Round to go Jon Tuck/Matt Sparkes are 1 point ahead of Nigel Crellin/Chris Molyneux, 164:163, Josh/Luke Golding are 3rd on 137. On the day the Zona1 Round saw Josh & Luke push Nigel & Chris back into 3rd place which let on the day winners Jon & Matt slip into that tiny points lead. Watch this space!

Keep smiling: todays sunshine helps!      Frank

North Somerset MSC Page!

Hi again,

The busy North Somerset guys ran the Gordon Brown Chase on Sunday & Jerry Walters says ”

Evening Frank, results of Sunday’s North Somerset Club 90 minute Time Trial at Ubley Drove are attached for the website. A small’ish entry were treated to a slippery, high scoring event after heavy overnight rain.                                Best regards:    Jerry”  See the Results here: NSMSC Gordon Brown Chase T:Trial Results 22:10:17.xls           I note Jason Hamblin was the Trials Class winner with 10 laps  completed, setting standard time & 24 observation marks lost, mainly in Section 5  & Andy Scrivens was the non Trials class winner losing 14 on time & 56 in the Sections.

They’ve also got two Centre Championship Events on consecutive weekends next month, the Ivan Manning Trophy Centre Championship Timed Trial on the 19th, whose Regs & Entry Form is here: NSMSC Ivan Manning Centre Champ Timed Trial Regs & Entry 19:11:17 & the Presidents Trophy Centre Observation Trials Championship Round on the 26th, the Regs & Entry Form for that one is here: NSMSC Presidents Champ Trial Reg & Entry Forms 26:11:17 .

So make sure you enter either or both asap so that the Club knows the time they are investing into the events will be well spent.



Congratulations to & Commiserations to: —

Good morning all from Scott Trial Country,

Congratulations to Tom Culliford, comfortably gaining a Finishers certificate on his first attempt. Even better, he had a round of applause from the large knowledgeable crowd at Bridge End for, i think it was the 2nd clean on the Section. A fine ride to 64th place..

Commiserations to Fred Adams who got no distance at all (in Scott Trial terms) before the rear tyre rolled off the rim, Fred’s a very capable mechanic as well as rider, but couldn’t sort it on site, & we saw him ‘shimmying’ back to the start on the road soon within a mile of the start, after we left the start field. He’d made up a fair number of places too. Very bad luck.

The two Belgian based German first timers Jan Peters & Max Faude both finished, Jan comfortably in time but Max was out by around 20 minutes. I hope we see both of them again next year.

Btw, Dougie was the winner & Ian Austermuhle was R/up

Feet up: Frank
