Sporting CC of Norfolk, were rewarded with a strong entry for the fourth round of the AMSC Trials Challenge, when they organised their Lyng Trial last Sunday.

Once again a strong contingent came from West Suffolk MC, and they came away with most of the awards.

One that eluded them was for overall victory, as this went to Falcon MC member, Barry Redmayne, in his Leige S.

Class one again saw Bury’s Dick Lines steer to victory in his Ford Ka, but the bulk of the entry was found in class two.

Reigning AMSC Champion, Christopher Pettitt, was back to winning ways, as Citroen Saxos dominated the class. Robin Howard took second, with Andy Mount third.

Breaking the Citroen domination, was Ben Cutting, bringing his Nissan Micra into fourth.

Thomas Pettitt secured fifth, this bringing him the Junior award.

Recently, the Renault Clios of Andrew Scott and Marcus Keeble have provided strong opposition, but not this time. Scott went out with gearbox failure while Keeble suffered a broken exhaust.

Class three, for rear-engined cars, was dominated by the Fiat 500 of Richard Leggett and Matthew Lake, as they took first and second respectively.

With Redmayne taking the overall award, class four fell to the RDT Special of Geoff Hodge.

Second and third positions were taken by father and son, Peter and Tim Hanman, in their Dellow MKI.

Both tied on 44 points, but Peter won on the tie decider.

Mike Dockray took his Dellow into sixth position, and with it the award for best novice.

Round five of the challenge will be in the hands of West Suffolk Motor Club, with their Wattisfield Trial on December 13.


Round two of the Motoring News Circuit Rally Championship, saw North Humberside Motor Club promote their stages rally at Cadwell Park last Sunday.

It attracted a very large entry from which King’s Lynn Motor Club crew, David and Alice Tinn, emerged as overall winners in the NEM Proton Satria.

They also took the award for the best mixed crew.

Their margin of victory was just 17 seconds from former British Rally Champion, Jonny Milner/Duncan McMath, in a Toyota Corolla WRC.

For the Thetford International entry of Johnnie Ellis/Joshua Clark, the rally ended on the third special stage, when their Subaru Impreza suffered clutch failure. At the time, they were holding down fourth position overall.

Ellis now plans to contest the next round of the championship, which will be the Rockingham Stages on December 6.
