Wells President’s Timed Trial Results, Tai is Champion, National Sidecar Trials Championship Rules

Hello to all,

We’ve just posted the Wells President’s Centre Championship Timed Trial Results, that Jerry Cross has sent over. I gather some of you have had ‘difficulties’ opening the results that have come via ‘Skydrive’ I think that’s  a thing in the ‘Cloud’?  Its posted on the Results Page or you can find it here Wells Presidents TT, 06:10:13

Tony Colman says “Now with one round to go Tom Smith cannot be beaten in the Enduro class. Much tighter in the trials class. Simon Prideaux was leading but his failure to ride in the Wells TT means Jason Hamblin now leads by 9 points.” I was at Farleigh on Sunday for the Maxxis Solo Moto-Cross Championship races, & I know why Simon didn’t defend his TT Champs lead. He was riding in the Vets class, 26th & 25th in his two races. Elliott Banks-Browne was crowned MX-1 Champ, & Kristian Whatley sewed up the MX-2 crown. It’s the first time I’ve seen Elliott’s Grandad, John Banks for a long time, John was videoing the Presentation with pride. Lets hope Elliott has a better World 2014 Series than he’s had this year.

Just been able to find a You Tube video of the complete Torun Speedway GP,  I have only watched the first 5 heats, Hampel, the only man who could stop Woffinden becoming World Speedway Champion, won his first Heat whereas Woffinden could only come in 3rd in his first Heat after gating last. Heat 5 saw both of them out together with 2 other Poles. Woffinden won that one whereas Hampel could only place 3rd. That was it, Woffinden was the Champion.

Remember West Wilts have a Centre Championship Trial at ‘Perrys’ on Sunday. We hope to see you there!

Going back to Farleigh, I saw Ricky Wiggins who is due for his anterior cruciate ligament repair to be done at Yeovil next week. So of course, we shan’t see him up at the Scott Trial in a couple of weeks. I hope the op & the rehab go well for you Ricky.

What I didn’t mention in the last Post was that the Centre Board is writing to the Trials & Enduro Committee to suggest changes to the British Sidecar Trials Championship Rules for next year. This year, because of new Legislation that has changed Driving Licence Rules it has become apparent that young sidecar drivers turning 17 this year have not been able to score Championship points in any Trial with Roadwork. This has affected ‘our’ sidecar crew  Josh & Luke Golding. We hope our letter will drive forward changes to the Championship Rules to accommodate any future drivers who would otherwise find themselves affected by this change to new Driving Licences.

Take it steady: Frank
