Sunday saw the running of the Inaugural Stanthorpe Pre65/Classic Trial at Robert Leggett's stunning "Leighton" property. Wow what a day, Trials Club of Queensland did a superb job of running the event and were rewarded with the event being a huge success and attracting 19 Pre65/Classic riders.
The riders had a choice of T5 and T6 lines in the 7 sections that were set. Of the 19 starters there was 12 riders in T5 and 7 in T6. The riders did 3 laps of the 7 sections in the morning, a one hour lunch break then another 3 laps of the sections in the opposite direction.
By the end of competition the T6 class had Maurice Blanchard and Ralph Hoole tied on 22 points and needed a ride off to determine the winner, after which Maurice was declared the winner.
The winner of T5 was determined by the end of the 42 sections with Tony Bax having a faultless ride of 0 points lost on his BSA Bantam piping Justin Gough by one point. Bradley Bryant was third on a Triumph Tiger Cub with 3 points lost. Amazing to think that the T5 top 3 had 20 Australian Championship between then.
The results are attached and some photos, many more photos to come in due time. In closing, this event was the first of its kind in Queensland, the plan is to make this at least an annual event. A massive congratulations to Trials Club of Queensland and a massive thank you to all involved in the running of this event.
