Robin Alexander Sporting Trial Results – 14th September 2019
Roland Uglow won the Robin Alexander Sporting trial on Saturday on the north Cornwall coast in stunning weather despite a couple of small errors during the afternoon. Twenty four sections offered a huge challenge to the crews with a real mixture of techniques needed. Uglow was driving aggressively, unusually, to win by just two points from John Fack who was debuting a new engine. British championship leader Simon Kingsley was extremely focused and completed the podium with a better afternoon, ahead of Richard Sharp. Colin Flashman was won the blue independent class in fifth overall despite missing a ten gate in the morning. Andy Wilks and Jerome Fack battled for sixth finishing a point apart, with rookie Darren Underwood finishing a fabulous eighth overall, and top live axle, beating George Watson and Mike Wevill who completed the top ten overall. Alan Baker won the blue live axle class after a disappointing day. Land owner Rex Ward completed in his first sporting trial and won the clubman class with some good climbs and a very creditable score.
