James Dabill stormed to victory as Butser Limeworks hosted round two of the British Trials Championships on Sunday.

The venue’s world-class trials track is most famous for Steve Saunders’ breakthtaking World Championship victory in 1998.

And it hosted another classic contest last weekend.

Dabill was attempting a quickfire double after victory in round one at Hookwood Trials Centre on Saturday.

The Vertigo Combat rider was tied with Michael Brown on 24 marks after one lap but powered clear to win by 14 with Sam Haslam finishing third.

Petersfield’s Dave Clinkard was 31st in the expert category, Craig Daffin, of Clanfield, finished 24th and East Meon’s Andy Blackman notched 22nd.

Isle of Wight ace Becky Cook, who is the eight-time British ladies’ champion and currently ranked second in the world, was forced to retire with a mechanical problem.
