IT was a cool day in the Washburn Valley last Sunday where the Yeadon-Guiseley Motor Club staged the seventh club championship trial at a dense Brown’s Wood.

The course overlooks the Ancient Packhorse Bridge over the River Washburn.

The 46 competitors had no time for sightseeing though, as they battled against Danny Cockshott’s testing 10-section course.

Cockshott even competed himself, managing to claim 10th place.

East Keswick Beta rider Ben Hemingway won the hard course class, just, from his teenage nephew George Hemingway and Midland visitor Brad Bullock.

National ladies star Alice Minta claimed third expert and was beaten by Bradford builder Charlie Smith in their class.

Clifton farmer Richard Crabtree won Clubman A riding his Vertigo machine while his sons were contesting Clubman B.

Bobby came 20th in Class C youth and Jimmy somehow missed a section and was classed as a non-finisher.

Paul Gravestock won Clubman B Over 50’s from Dave Lamin, while Crossflatts lady Beth Dunning was the top Clubman competitor, beating her father Jason, who came second.
