Will Corry and Pete Moreland-Moore have once again won yesterday’s MG Ulster Classic Trial. In a stellar drive in the gorgeous blue K Series powered Midget, the pair really made this event their own. Second place overall was secured by David Cochrane (Midget) and third by Sam McCurry in a Mini. Well done to them and they became winners of Classes C and D respectively by virtue of Will winning overall.

This event, of course, is the brainchild of Noel Cochrane who this year has excelled himself with superb tests in the most amazing locations in the Craigantlet area. So many crews expressed their delight to me as they passed, acknowledging that this is a unique event in that it is only for classic cars. There is no modern class beyond 1974. Noel, as an outstanding autotester himself, knows just how to provide the tests of driving skill and nostalgia that no one else can replicate.
This 2018 Trial had it all and it is a tribute to Will & Pete and the class winners for driving so skilfully (have a look at Will & Pete’s excellent in-car footage on Facebook and YouTube to see how a Midget should be driven).
