As the anticipated date was unavailable, the Yorkshire Classic Club quickly moved the eighth round of their Pre-Unit series two weeks forward to the only suitable date that the rugged quarry and pasture at Roggerham Gate was available. With other events in the area this lead to one of the poorest turnouts of the year with only 21 starters. The day started with a minutes silence in memory of long time member and former club secretary Keith Blackburn who died recently and club President gave a short history of his time with the Club.
Lancashire’s Dave 'Stav' Ingram took his Ariel to the pre-unit win losing a meagre 2 marks, with similarly mounted Steve Gossop and current pre-unit championship leader Johnny Cooke just one mark behind.
In the Non Championship class, Steve Thomas (Bantam) was once again on form to finish without loss with Mick Whitlow (Cub) one mark behind.
