It was good weather but a little dusty for the Bank Holiday grass track meeting held at Truthan Farm, St Erme, near Truro on Sunday. A large number of spectators and riders met following the lifting of the DEFRA ban to stop off road racing.

Some riders were unfortunate to have mechanical problems during the day, but this did not take away the good riding.

In the solos there was a large entry racing across the different classes. The first open final was won by Wayne Barrett, with Adrian Rowe taking the second open final in the experts and Paul Bray taking second place in the open. Paul also won the restricted licence race. The pre 75s was won by Maurice Jones with Mike Bowden coming in second. Due to the lack of numbers in the 350 cc and 250 cc race they were combined, with John Cox in first place and Steve Pearce in second.

In the sidecars there were nine outfits and this proved to be good racing for the spectators with the local and visiting boys fighting it out to win the finals.

Lee Hicks/Phil Collyer had a better day, now having got the outfit sorted and not encountering any gremlins during the meeting. They came third in the first open final and mainly seconds in the heats. Rick McAuley/Phil Stoneman won the sidecar finals with Clive Stoneman/Shaun Hocking runners-up. Darren Wilce/Gareth Bemister won the junior race for the sidecars.
