John Stait Champ Timed Trial Results, James Cup, Revised Results, Latest Trials Championship Points Table, Reminder re Traders Trophy on Sunday, KTM Freeride Maxxis tyre

Hello all,

A long weekend for guys who have to work  & of course the weather forecast isn’t for four long hot sunny days!

Martin Lawford has sent across last Sundays Centre Time Trial Championship John Stait Trophy Results which are here: Wells John Stait TT Results 200316  & says “Please find attached results from last sundays Wells Timed Trial at Rookham, the second round of the Wessex Centre Timed Trial Championship.

Jason Hamblin took the win with a clean sheet on observation but losing 1 on time to brother Mark making one of his rare appearances. Andy Frost matched Jason with a clean sheet , but it was Kye Banks who took the runner up spot, both losing 8 marks, Kye having the faster time after Andy lost his rear brake early on.

In the Enduro class it was tight with Harvey Dark pipping Tom Smith to the win by a single mark on 58 and 59 respectively, with Charlie Frost only another 7 marks behind on 66.

Regards: Martin”

Martin Peter points out a mistake in the James Cup Results, he wonders if his 9 in Section 7 means he missed out on a 10 for style? Apologies from the Results team! Revised Results are here  JamesCup 20-03-16-Results.cwk (SS)

Pete Dury had the Trials Champ Tables updated on Monday of course, but the revised James Cup Results will have altered the C Class Table. The Tables published here 2016 Centre Champ Tables as at 21:03:16 includes this change. Pete commented

” Good Afternoon Wessex Centre Championship table attached following yesterday’s James Cup Trial which was excellent and very enjoyable – many thanks to everyone at the West Wilts Motor Club.

Well done to Lee Hassall – pipping round one winner Oliver Humphries by just one mark.

Also, a very notable ride by Andy Noad – riding a Duracell Bunny battery bike that he only picked up on Saturday. An excellent first ride on a bike with no gears, no clutch, no kick start and no noise!

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

Regards: Pete Dury”

ps: Apologies to Brian Shuttleworth, hope I didn’t scare you too much with my out of control riding on your section every lap!

The KTM Freeride is causing some angst with it’s Maxxis rear tyre. Gary Scrivens has had a definitive statement from the ACU Trials Secretary about its eligibility in Competition, part of which I’ve copied below

“The Championship regulations of the ACU Trail Bike Championship do stipulate that Trials tyres are required, and this in turn would obviously lead to the ACU specification of such a tyre

As you correctly state this falls under TSR 8 of the current ACU Trials  Standing Regulations , and  the specifications are listed under p 200 of the 2016 Handbook.

Our information is that the tyre to which you refer falls outside these specifications and therefore would not be regarded as a Trial tyre in the context of our Trials Regulations.”

Thanks for passing that on Gary. I’ve also noted that neither KTM or Maxxis claim the tyre meets the Trials tyre specification.
