MSA British Car Trial Championship: Invinghoe Car Trial

Round 3: 15 April

Barrie Parker won Falcon Motor Club’s Invinghoe Car Trial in a Fiat 600, despite not having driven a front-wheel-drive car for four years.

A capacity entry of 50 was met with dry conditions for most of the day. Rain during the last round transformed the sections, allowing Parker to take eleven points off Shawn Franklin on one hill and win the class.

Neil Mackay won the front-wheel-drive class and finished second overall. Barry Redmayne won the well-supported clubman class. 

1 Barrie Parker, Fiat 600, 58.3%
2 Neil Mackay, Citroen AX, 69.2
3 Shawn Franklin, Citroen Saxo VTS, 71.6

Provisional championship standings
