John’s no Duffy

Aiming a trial primarily at Clubman is usually guaranteed to get a decent entry and offer the club’s own land at Lindale, Cumbria ensured that Westmorland’s trial on the first Sunday in March achieved exactly what the club wanted with a healthy 63 entries who enjoyed a short, four lap ten section course on the steep but open and grassy hillside littered with rock outcrop.

With a Clubman Hard course, a Clubman normal course and a Clubman easy course offered, the riders all found a route to suit their abilities.

Young Joel Isherwood,(lead picture) who was happy to ride under the number 13 showed all the riders who were older than him how it’s done over the easy course by losing just 3 marks from Angus Knox and Harold Whiteway both losing four marks.

Brothers Ben and Jack Butterworth dominated the Clubman Hard course with Ben just edging out his younger brother by a single mark. The Ariel mounted older of the two lost 8 marks whilst the Honda TLM mounted younger brother finished the four laps on nine whilst third place went to Simon Brice who was well adrift on 21, three marks in front of Dale Metcalfe.

Nick Shield

John Duffy had the best ride of the day with the loss of just a single mark over the Clubman standard course with Nick Shield second on 9 giving the beautiful 350 Ariel that Andrew Bingley and Nick have been preparing for the forthcoming Pre 65 Scottish whilst Adam Weatherall was the best performer in the Under 40 class.
