Beth Dunning, Megan Savage and 17-year-old engineering student Lucy Ayrton won the intermediate category.

Barnsley’s Megan Savage won the class riding her 250cc Has Gas from Beth Dunning who rode her 250cc Beta machine. Lucy rode her new TRS 250 cc machine.

Horsforth and District Motor Club hit the high notes on Sunday at Kex Gill, Blubberhouses, where 120 competitors contested the annual Basic Memorial Trial which commemorates the return of petrol coupons for sporting events in the 1950s.

The Horsforth ‘chain gang’ of Nige Pearson, Russ Brodie and Howard Gulley plotted a new look 18-section course with some new sections in the car park area and the rest below the towering crags overlooking the A59 trunk road.

The heavy rain left some legacies but winner Richard Sadler got his Vertigo home with just a dab down in the valley at section 12. The Leyburn rider recorded the only clean on his first lap.

Challenger Harry Hemingway incurred a one and three score. That second place overall won the East Keswick teenager the W.H. Marston Trophy. George Hemingway was fifth overall and junior class winner.

Peter Sharp won Clubman A from Richard Shepherd. Phillip Hammond topped Clubman B where there were 40 competitors.
