The 2022 C & D NEWNHAM charity trial took place on 25/26 June.
This year it was opened up to CCV vehicles as well as RTV vehicles.
11 teams of three drivers took part in the two 20 section trials.
Newnham estate allowed us to use both some new land, and some areas that have not been used for this event for many years. We had a mixed bag of weather over the weekend, with a fair bit of rain during the night, making the sections quite challenging.
Together with the help from our sponsors, and our fund raising activities in the evening, and kind donations/raffle prizes from over 24 sponsors we raised over £3500 over the course of the weekend. This together with the money we raised during a charity comp earlier in the year allowed us to donate £4020 to St Luke’s hospice, Turnchapel, Plymouth
The winning CCV team was Jacob Jepps, Joe Garne, and Paul Garne, with a combined score of 125 points The lowest scoring CCV driver for the Weekend being Mike Woodgate finishing on 26 points.
The winning RTV team was George Lewendon, Alex Moore, and Simon Wheeler, with a combined score of 131 points.The lowest scoring RTV driver for the weekend being David White on 15 points.
The spirit of the event was presented to Kim Dobinson for being an excellent Master of Ceremonies on Saturday night and helping raise lots of money for the charity.
