Beta take lead in Manufacturers Championship
Assisted by two class wins, Beta have taken an early lead in the Manufacturers Championship with TRRS in second and Montesa/ Honda currently in third. Reigning Champions, Gas Gas currently do not have anyone in the ACU Trial GB class which is likely to effectively rule them out of retaining the title in 2020.
Class wins from James Dabill and Sam Connor, ably backed up by Dan Hemingway in the Trial Expert class secured 49 points for the Italian marque, whilst TRRS (43 points) enjoyed double second places with Toby Martyn and Ross Danby and new signing Connor Atkinson playing an important role with a fifth place in the Experts.
The combination of Montesa- Honda scored strongly on thirty eight with Billy Green, Sam Haslam, now Honda mounted for 2020 and Ben Morphett totting up the points. Vertigo are fourth on thirty three points, closely followed by Sherco (32) and Gas Gas (27). Unfortunately, with only a point scoring rider in the ACU Trial 2 Class, Scorpa are currently at the foot of the table.
It should be noted that the ACU Trial 125 class, or the Best Lap Bonus points do not count for points as per the Championship regulations.
The next round of the series will take place in Neath, South Wales on April 5th. Entries are open on line on the Ride ACU website.
