MSA ABS British Car Trial Championship

Final Round, Owen MC - 28th September

The final round of this year's Championship organised by Owen Motor Club had four contenders in with a chance of becoming the 2008 Champion. Dave Oliver (Imp) was on 32 pts; Neil Mackay (Panda) on 31 pts; Les Andrew (Citroen AX) on 30 pts and Garry Preston (Fiat 127) was on 29 pts.

A light drizzle in the morning made the ground conditions 'interesting' and there were one or two slip-ups among the contenders. After the first two rounds it was apparent that Garry and Neil were out of the equation, leaving a straight battle between Les and Dave. After the last round they were equal and it all hinged on who would get the one bonus point for best result above the rest of the Class. The provisional results announced Les as the champion, but an error in the scores cruelly deprived him of a very short victory and crowning Dave Oliver as 2008 Champion.
