Reg Bowker Trial
2022 details to follow...
A great day for the Reg Bowker Trial – ground conditions good and weather was perfect.
We are thrilled to be able to host the Reg Bowker Trial at the fantastic Warren Heath forest venue despite obvious restrictions and during these difficult times.
Our special thanks must go to Forestry England for the kind use and permission of Warren Heath.
Special thanks to Dave Renham for finding us some new sections.
Congratulations to Sam Connor, who used his experience of winning the Scottish Six Day Trial, to come out victorious at the Reg Bowker Trial yesterday. Current British Championship regular Jonny Starmer had to settle for second, with last year's winner Philip Wiffen coming in third.
In the Intermediates, former ISDE British Trophy Team Rider Joel Mitson won the day with 6ml, ahead of Southern Centre legend Steve Moore on 8ml. In the Over 40's, Mick Marshall won the day ahead of Mark Budgen.
On the red route, Luke Smith tied with Colin Grist with 8ml, but Luke took the honours after the Special Test was included. Jason Warren of Redhill and Reigate Club won the Over 50's. Young Jonathan Bannister managed to pilot his Pre-67 to victory, ahead of Thames MCC's Martin Kemp. Paul Ray took his immaculate TY175 out for a spin, dropping just 7 marks in the Twinshock class.
David White won the Beginners, ahead of Colin Searle and local hero David Allaway.
Jake Challice won the Youth Experts, aboard his TRS125. In Youth Inter, Thomas Packham won, just ahead of up and coming enduro rider Max Agar. The Connor family not only won the event overall, but cleaned up in the Youth Novices and Youth Beginners with James and Rosy respectively.

This event is run each December in memory of the late Reg Bowker, a long-time Witley MCC member whose efforts on behalf of the Club are the stuff of legend.
We are delighted to announce this year’s Reg Bowker Trial is back at the fantastic Warren Heath forest at Blackbushe.
Final round of the 2021 TVTC and Star Group Trials Championships and set in the wonderful Warren Heath forest, the team will be setting out 15/18 traditional sections with a special test to decide ties. There are classes and routes suitable for all levels of bike and rider.
