Ben Collins Memorial Trial 2005

Words By Colin Jones Photos by Murray Smith

Ben Falconer got to ride a dinosaur, or as he puts it a 'Bultosaur', in the Ben Collins Trial held at Colgate Farm high above Cheltenham. Isn't it great when parents have enough faith to lend their pride and joy to their children! Hang on! shouldn't the children be their pride and joy, not a Bultaco Sherpa? You had better take up golf Amory or you may end up with this family heirloom in the future!

We are still waiting for the results to appear so come back again to see if Ben's riding was improved by the experience!

We were well represented at the event with Goff Hannam on Ariel solo plus his big brother Cliff with Marlene out on their Ossa 350 sidecar (oh you young kids nowadays! of course you wouldn't have heard of them, here is some info...) Also cousin Ian Hannam was accompanying them with CHG's Debbie Smith in the chair.
