NSMSC Gordon Brown Chase Results, Wilts Border RTClub Autumn Trophy, Wells Mike Cornish T/Trial, NSMSC Ivan Manning T/Trial

Hi all,

So the Scott Trial is over for another year, it’s noticeable that the organisers have to put more & more effort in each succeeding year to try to keep ‘enthusiasts’ off the private land before & during the event. We heard that bikes were being impounded at Surrender by the Police – presumably because they were being used illegally or were contravening the Law is some way.

We also saw 4 youngsters on pit bikes riding against the Clubs one way system to Surrender, followed by a Pick Up using its roof mounted orange flashing lights to  ‘escort’ them. Whoever you are, the adult who was shepherding them needs to be taken aside for a talking to in my opinion. We saw the Greeves 25DC, whose owner now has 2 new hips, in the traffic queue  from Surrender to Grand Canyon [yes really its that many nose to tail vehicles], while we were having lunch, so we had a quick chat. We usually see him & his wife outside one of the Cafes in Reeth where they have a cup of tea. One nice Scott was stopped in Reeth when we had stopped to buy pasties at the Bakers.

We have seen a Scott Spoon! Eric Kitchen showed us one at Orgate, it was won by his father in 1930 – before Eric was born. What an heirloom for the Kitchen family ,Eric’s Dad raced speedway & in the Island as well as the Scott. In those days you could still be an all rounder in the sport

“Afternoon Frank,

Results of Sunday’s North Somerset Club 90 minute Gordon Brown Chase, held at Ubley Drove, are attached for the website.

With many of the scrambles class hotshots missing, Charlie Frost coasted to an easy class win and overall premier, setting standard time and losing just 12 marks in the sections. Old Timer Gary Newman took second place in the class but lost a total of 63 marks, just one mark less than third placed Ant Milliar who was riding in his first North Somerset Club Time Trial.

Jason Hamblin mounted on his old Scorpa just took the trials class win, and overall runner up spot, but lost a total of 34 marks. Hot on his heels (again) was the flying Ricky Hudson on 37, with Dan Dark being the only other rider in the trials class to complete 13 laps, taking third spot on 70 marks.

Half a dozen sidecar outfits also took part, but the slippery going took a heavy toll and there were eventually just two finishers. Paul Manning and Ben Sinclair completed 8 laps losing 72 marks to take the top spot from Simon Chilcott and Scott Baker on 121 marks.

Best regards, Jerry
