Round 2: Basil Elkington Car Trial, 22 March
Dave Harvey was a delighted winner of the Basil Elkington car trial in Kent, taking his first overall event win.
Harvey took the early class lead over Barrie Parker, who was out in his championship-winning MR2. Harvey withstood tremendous pressure all afternoon on sections that punished any mistake, holding on for a decisive class – and maiden overall – win.
Roger Holder took the front-wheel-drive class win by two points from fellow autotester Brian Sharpe, who in turn was a single point ahead of the next three competitors in the dry Kent sunshine. The new car class saw Chris Judge take the class lead and third overall.
