2013 British Youth C&D Championship

luscombeThe Richmond Motor Club stage Round four of the A.C.U. Luscombe Suzuki Leeds British Class C and D Youth Trials Championship at Wensley on Sunday where the Parkgate Farm venue hosted the 2012 British Ladies Championship event. The rolling pastures with modest to steep gradients will test the youngsters without any risk factor. The experienced Paul Robinson will mastermind the trials course.


Class C Standard Wheels will be another conflict between Newton Abbott youngster Bill Green and the determined Colsterworth, Lincoln, boy Daniel Slack. He won the Hutchinson Cup event in the Lake District in May in the worst possible weather conditions but that only fired Billy Green into winning Zona 1 and the North Esat Centre events. Those boys will under attack though from Bradford contenders Joe Faunthorpe and Charlie Smith.


In Class C Medium Wheels Edward Earle has fifty seven championship points but Alice Minta has ridden Parkgate and knows what to expect. Miss Minta will be in her usual Top Gear mode. Charlie Mosley and Mathias Salin could show well on the grass.


Jack Dance is on a roll in Class D Medium Wheels on a maximum. The Horsham Gas Gas rider is thirteen points up on Banbury Beta rider Dale Freeman with the Bradford duo Harvey Mosley and Jacob Smith moving closer. With Richmond, Bumpy and Stevenston on the agenda nothing is written in stone at this stage.


Class D Small Wheels seems to be an open to all situation. Henry Stephenson has two victories, foiled only by Harry Hemingway at Zona 1 but Buxton’s Harry Turner has outpointed Dominic Horne and Hemingway though the latter has dispensed with the drop score debit by missing Westmorland. Could Stephenson experience that wins the day but the Osets will struggle with the grass, if happens to be a wet day.


As usual the McIntyre Catering unit will be feeding all and sundry from 08.00 am.


The trial will start at 10.30 am. The entrance to Parkgate Farm will be signed between Leyburn and West Witton
