2017 Clee Hills Trial Entry Pack

“WELCOME TO THE CLEE HILLS TRIAL IN SOUTH SHROPSHIRE

2017 sees a new look to the event, with the introduction of classes for motorcycles. Original organiser Simon Woodall steps back into the role of Clerk of the Course, assisted by Tim Fairbrother (tbc) in the same role for the bikes.

The start returns the the Afcot Lodge on the A49 north of Craven Arms, but now with trailer parking for all in the field behind the start. After last year’s monodirectional route we return to the the twin loop system that gets us all done in the mid-winter daylight. There’s more common use of sections, meaning extra sporting enjoyment for the marshals and a consistent flow of competitors.

There will be a few more challenges for the expert drivers and riders, but also new incentives to welcome the trialling novice to our wonderful motorsport. So for those of you who know of a prospective trialler, perhaps we can entice them out on a road based Classic Trial. About 75 miles around Wenlock Edge and the delightful Long Mynd, some old lanes and some woodland, and relatively non-damaging in our class 0 option.

The event will also run as a dual permit, with Clubmans accommodating those without a competition licence, for example MCC entrants. VSCC entrants continue to be especially welcome, giving delight to other drivers in their ‘moderns’, the marshals and spectators alike.

2017 is the 70th Anniversary of the Clee Hills Trial. The 1947 event, which was run in heavy snow, features in C.A.N. May’s classic book ‘More Wheelspin’.”

“Congratulations to Greg Walker, Richard Maddern and Craig Allen who have taken the Best Overall Awards for 2 wheels, 3 wheels and 4 wheels respectively.

Hopefully there are no errors in the Results, if however you wish to protest please ensure you do this by phoning Dave on the number provided in the Result sheet by 6pm Monday 21st March 2016.

Please remember that the Marshalls are judges of fact and are always right (even when they’re wrong!), however administrative errors can sometimes occur when transferring this to the Results spreadsheet.

Thank you all for supporting our event which many found to be quite tough but thoroughly enjoyable. Hopefully you will be able to make it back again next year and experience another couple of new sections that we’re already working on!

Camel Classic Trial 2016 Regs Available

Camel Vale Motor ClubEntries are now open for the 2016 Camel Classic Trial.

2016 Camel Classic Trial Entry Pack

“The Camel Classic Road Trial first ran in 1983 (called the Octo for the first two years) thanks to two new trialers Hans Viertel and Pete Allen. The event flourished every year and soon became a round of the Chester Motor Club Trials Championship and later ACTC and ASWMC Championship rounds. The original organising team of Hans and Pete were still running the event 31 years later in 2014.

Sadly Hans suddenly passed away in 2015 which was a huge loss to Camel Vale Motor Club and the trialling community. Hans was described by many as a true gentlemen and he is greatly missed by all. He really was totally immersed in trials; be it as a competitor, marshall or organising the Camel Classic in December every year. We hope his memory can live on in this event for many years to come.

Again this year the Camel Classic will be run as a dual permit event so that non-championship competitors may enter under the Clubmans permit and will not be required to produce a Competition Licence.

For the first time ever in 2015 we invited motocycle solo’s and outfits to enter the trial. This was a success and all the riders enjoyed the event so we will continue this for future years.

Hope you enjoy the event!”
