Scarborough and District Motor Club played host to its classic sporting weekend of trials action in glorious sunny weather.

The course plotters included Peter Race, who has a wealth of experience in setting out classic sections.

He provided competitors with a range of classic, non-stop trials suited to the bikes of a bygone era.

Competing for SDMC was hot favourite Colin Bailey riding his beautifully prepared and sounding Ariel

The popular twinshock class included rising star on the club scene Olly Kendra on an immaculate Honda TLR and in-form Joe Clements on a fantic.

Dave Chilton was also having a weekend of fun on his Honda as was the two Hunters, Danny and Katie, were all looking for a top result.

Saturday was the easier of the two days and needless to say it certainly was for Bailey, who got off to a flyer. He lost no marks while nearest rival Dave Emmott conceded six, leaving Bailey heading into Sunday in a great position.

Bailey, a former trials expert with his smooth old school riding style, again made light work of the sections on the Sunday finishing on four marks lost in total for the weekend, a superb achievement and victory by 17 marks.

The Twinshock Class accommodated all makes and models of machinery ranging from Yamahas, Fantics and Honda.

Like Bailey it was Kendra who took top honours in the class for the weekend with a superb clean ride on the Saturday and only two marks lost on the Sunday, his nearest rival Paul Dennis was just one mark behind.

Clements meanwhile finished the weekend on a very respectable score, despite the odd lack of concentration, he completed the event on eight marks lost and fourth place.

There were also good finishes for Chilton and the brother and sister duo of Danny and Katie Hunter.
