ACU Trial GB Round 5 Results

Toby Martyn, Ross Danby, Harry Turner and Tom Affleck take honours at round 5

In extremely dry conditions Toby Martyn scored his fourth win out of five in the Trial GB class at Scarborough. Pushed all the way on the opening lap after incurring a five mark timed out penalty on section eleven, the confident Cornishman then took charge and returned two laps of three and one to take victory. Dan Peace – returning from injury – took the second spot on the rostrum with Billy Green making a podium visit for the first time this season.

Ross Danby pulled three marks back on local hero Andy Chilton in the Trial 2 category with Jack Dance taking third just three marks adrift. Danby and Chilton are now locked in combat with equal championship points awaiting the best lap bonus point to be awarded.

Harry Turner claimed his maiden Trial 125 class win after a sizzling first lap and withstood the pressure to maintain his lead for the rest of the day. Harry Hemingway – beaten for the first time this season – had to settle for second after suffering illness during the week, but was the first to congratulate Turner at the presentations. George Hemingway kept in touch for his customary third place.

Championship leader Tom Affleck took the Expert class win and extended his championship lead in the process, edging out George Gosden on the tie-break. Round one winner Chris Alford finished the day in third.
