MSA British Car Trial Championship

Round 6: Warwickshire, 6 May

Dave Oliver won the Warwickshire car trial for the sixth consecutive year, beating Nick Pollitt after a dominant performance.

Both Oliver and Pollitt were class winners amid slippery conditions at Burton Dassett Country Park. Oliver, aboard his Hillman Imp, dropped just 12 points all day to continue his winning streak at the venue.

Pollitt's drive in his standard Citroen Saxo VTR was masterful; he dropped just one point more than Duncan Stephens, who beat John Moffatt after a day-long battle in the front-wheel-drive class. Barrie Parker's championship-winning MR2 was crushed by Pollitt, who dropped nearly half his score on the hills. Trevor Clarke won the novice award driving his new car class Ford Ka. DS
