Hogmoor RTV SS3 & Driving Day

Hogmoor Sadly our last visit to the Hogmoor site, but we went out in style with an 8 section RTV courtesy of Ashley Bartlett, Hannah McMillan and Hugh Davies. Scores were low across the day, but the sections were by no means easy with decent navigations skills and good waterproofing needed to tackle the wetter sections. Joe Stacey put in an excellent drive in his Discovery the wooded sections were particularly tight and to see a class 5 win overall was a surprise. Jack Dewdney continued his run of form to finish on 3 points and missing overall only by number of clears across the 8 sections.

Thanks goes out to the team of Arne Jonsson, Elton Jonsson, Neil Tomlinson, John Bicknell and Vicky Tomlinson for running and marsalling the drive around.

National Rally 2015 Winners

National 2015 The Club would like to thank the Midland Land Rover Club for an excellent weekends competition at the Nationals. Held at the spiritual home of Land Rover, Eastnor Castle Ledbury, Herefordshire HBLRO competed in TYRO, RTV, CCV and Comp Safari with 27 line ups across the 3 days. The club did well in standard class scooping perpetual awards for combined results across disciplines. The most notable achievement was to win the RTV overall across all classes. Alan Braclik drove out of his skin to finish on only 8 points across 12 sections against a field of 138 vehicles.

The TYRO ran the same day as CCV. Max Childs took 2nd in Licensed driver with Hilary James taking 3rd.

The Staffs & Shrops LRC need to be congratulated for setting out and running an excellent Comp Safari. As we have come to expect from S&S the event was run smoothly and efficiently with a good mix of fast straight and technical sections. Mark Ambler put his 90 to its paces returning consistent times over the 7 runs taking the fastest spot for a standard class vehicle.

Niall Banyard made his first appearance in Comp completing the day, but not after a slight incident that found Niall on his side as he opted for a quicker more technical route. Team HBLRO rallied around to solve a loss of oil pressure and sure enough he was back and running the Jack and Neville Dewdney sharing navigation duties. Even though he did not win there's 20 waiting from Andy Bunyan and Dave Scoffield after he finished the day.

Fresh from his win in RTV Alan was back behind the wheel for Comp. Alan lost a tyre and ran into mechanical issues, but still managed to completed his 7 runs. Ashley Bartlett had an eventful weekend. Flying the flag for leaf special class Ashley's chassis split during CCV. Not defeated team bumble patched up the motor ready for comp. With the repair in mind Ashley nursed his vehicle home to take a class 6 win.

A special mention has to go to Russell Smith who stepped up on several occasions fixing fellow club members vehicles. His team spirit helped us to achieve the best possible result seeing the team complete their chosen disciplines without early retirement.

Tim Whishaw The Club would like to thank Dorset LRC for an excellent trial at Mannington. 31 drivers took part in this 12 section RTV that will now become an annual event in both Clubs calendars.
