Their aim – to celebrate the life of Barrie Murdock, who died in a trialing accident last May, in the way he would have liked to have been remembered; at the wheel of a trialer. After a frosty start, 32 competitors took on 12 challenging trial sections on what turned out to be one of the nicest days of the year so far. After a stormy week, the rains stopped and the wind abated in Barrie’s honour allowing the competitors to enjoy beautiful clear blue skies throughout the day.
Competitors included Barrie’s son Christopher and LLRC Chairman, Jim Bradford. Jim commented, ‘it was great to see so many turn out, both drivers and spectators to honour Barrie.’
There will be a full report on the event in the Spring issue of LRO, which will be out in March.
