THE non-championship trial venue for Yeadon-Guiseley Motor Club was Dob Park on Sunday but the action was a mile away in Brown’s Wood, where 10 sections tested the 61 starters.

Three classes contested what was a club-restricted event, with contenders from East Yorkshire and Lancashire.

As expected, Harry Hemingway topped the hard route with a dab on lap one in the 10th section.

Richard Sadler was right on to him, but the exit up Crosser’s Rocks got him for one on lap one and then another in the third section where the camber and slime grabbed his front wheel.

With father Dan Hemingway and brother Ben riding shotgun, the latter on a new 300cc Beta two stroke. Harry was well-informed.

Ironically, the older Hemingways kept 13-year old family member George off the podium, who was well clear of novice winner Bevan Blacker.

Only a dozen riders contended the hard route class. Sam Yeadon managed to win Clubman A after a dawn patrol planting route and section flags.

The west end of Brown’s was littered with tree branches and uprooted bushes.

Ironically, Crosser’s infamous climb took nine marks off Yeadon, who posted the only clean ride on lap one.

Runner-up pair John Bannister and Henry Stephenson, as well as Masham Sausages supremo Paul Dennis, edged up the rocks for three penalties to keep Gary Pears in fifth place.

David Lamin held on to win Clubman B from Over-50s winner Howard Gully and Cullingworth’s Robin Luscombe.

The latter was intent on a finish despite a gearbox oil seal problem.

The youngsters completed the Clubman C course, which was won by local lad Jimmy Crabtree, who got round on just 18 penalties.
