Congratulations to Simon Harris on winning this year’s Ernest Owen Trial, giving a FWD masterclass in difficult conditions.
Harris’ understanding of his Golf and the conditions proved decisive over the little nimble Mini of Rupert North who finished second overall.
The Motorsport UK British championship was down to the wire with Owen’s Garry Preston needing to win overall in his Fiat 127 but could only manage third in class in the wet conditions. Mark Hoppe retained the British Championship, his fourth in six years by winning the rear wheel drive class in tricky conditions by three points from Dave Oliver.
Trevor Moffatt won the new car class slowly extending a sixteen point lead over veteran John Wadsworth and Nick Pollitt who was out for the first time this year. Moffatt’s class win enough to secure third in the British championship previously won by father Bill and youngest brother John.
Preston could only manage sixth overall having a very tight battle with Colin Reid, just two points separating them. Wadsworth and Pollitt tied for eighth overall, and Barrie Parker completed the top ten overall in his Westfield.
It was great to see five clubman entries, none of them regular trials drivers, out having a go. Grant Victory won after a tight battle between all five.

Please find attached the regulations and entry form for the 2019 Ernest Owen Memorial Car Trial, a round of the Motorsport UK British Car Trials and BTRDA championships. Once again held at the fabulous Catton Park site we aim to make the event challenging but non-damaging and for 2019 will also be running a dual Clubman’s permit alongside the championship National B to try and open the event up to as many competitors as possible. A reminder that double driving of cars is permitted and that passengers are optional.
Not sure what car trials are all about? Have a read of the guidance on https://btrda.com/about-car-trials/ then come and give it a go!
We look forward to welcoming both new and returning competitors to Catton Park on the 22nd September.
