Hawksworth Trial

13th October 2002

This was a new site for the club and from my distant memories of the site I could recall trees, mud and rocks but not a lot else about the site. The two Marks, ably assisted by John, Bob, Amanda and Claire had to put up with torrential rain on Saturday while they set the trial out but, fortunately, Sunday proved to be dry and warm (or as close as it gets in Yorkshire in October). Due to the "compact" nature of the site we had to cap the entry at 20 which was another club first and something we may have to consider at other small sites too. The single "no show" entry was taken by Phill Harrison who turned up as a "reserve" to compete or marshal.
The trial itself was challenging without being too daft and those setting out had used nice wide gates with the terrain and the odd tree or rock being the main challenges. The previous day's rain had made the ground extremely slick with some apparently innocuous looking parts of the sections turning out to be traps to catch the unwary, sending your vehicle sliding gracefully into a cane or simply coming to a standstill with all wheels spinning !
All in all it was a great days trialling and those responsible are to be congratulated.
