The husband and wife team of Ian and Ros Martin took out the Challenge of Clubs Trial last Saturday night, at the wheel of their Subaru Impreza WRX.

The Martins finished nearly a minute and a half clear of Mark Millar and Dion Clayton in a Datsun 1600, while another Impreza WRX, that of Alan and Kevin Wilson, were third, a further half a minute in arrears.

Brett Ross and Jason Hague were fourth in a Commodore, with the top five being rounded out by Simon and Ian Ellis in a Datsun Stanza.

Promising young driver, Richard Gill, was the leading retirement in his Toyota Sprinter.
