Launceston Trial 2017 Regs Now Available

Launceston & North Cornwall Motor ClubEntries are now open for the 2017 Launceston Trial.

2017 Launceston Trial Entry Pack

“Launceston & North Cornwall Motor Club invite you to the 2017 Launceston Trial. The trial will again run in its popular format as a single venue trial held in Eastcott & Lew Woods.

As always we hope to introduce some new sections and of course sections from the Tamar Trial will be included. We again plan to have a catering van in attendance throughout the day providing hot rolls and baps etc. and hot & cold drinks.

A popular move in recent years has been to automatically include membership to Launceston & North Cornwall Motor Club for the year, for anyone who enters the trial and we are pleased to be able to offer this again. Therefore competitors from any club, or indeed if you have yet to renew your club membership, all are very much welcome to enter the trial as you will automatically become a member of the organising club upon entry. And of course as the event is run under a Clubman permit there is the added bonus that you don’t need a competition licence to enter.

We hope you can join us on Sunday 12th February and look forward to providing you with a good day.”

2016 Championship Tables – FINAL

ACTCHere are the final updated tables for last years Championships.

Unfortunately due to certain errors in the spreadsheet formatting, incorrect data entry and then finally a few erroneous details passed on from clubs relating to who was and wasn’t entered as Clubman entries, they have changed quite significantly.

They have now been checked multiple times and recalculated with the final positions as shown on the site. Apologies again to all those affected in a negative sense and I am sure some will be disappointed whereas others pleasantly surprised with their final positions.

Cotswold Clouds Trial 2017 Regs Available

Stroud & District Motor ClubEntries are now open for the 2017 Cotswold Clouds Trial.

2017 Cotswold Clouds Trial Entry Pack

“On Sunday 5th February 2017 we welcome you to join us, as we have done since 1963, for our Cotswold Clouds Classic Trial. Over the years many competitors and spectators have enjoyed the Cotswold Hills, and this year will hopefully be no exception.

Some sections have been eased to suit all classes but still present a challenge, and of course, we still have the old favourites to be climbed such as Crooked Mustard, Nailsworth Ladder and Wicked Juniper. A couple of new sections in Badgers Wood will finish the event.

The Clouds has been a successful trial attracting a full entry for many years, and won the ACTC Trial of The Year award in 2016. The organising team of Carl Talbot, Mark Hobbs, Mark Linforth, Nigel Scotford, Suzanne Staddon and Ben Giles look forward to receiving your entries.”

Exmoor Trial 2017 Regs Available

North Devon Motor ClubEntries are now open for the 2017 Exmoor Trial.

2017 Exmoor Trial Entry Pack

“Welcome to the 2017 Exmoor Trial, which is a round of the 2017 ACTC Car and Motorcycle Classic Trial Championships, and ASWMC Classic Reliability Trial Championship. This year there are a few new lanes in this event which we hope will provide you with some new challenges. The route is approximately 75 miles on OS Map 180 in the very north of Devon with a real mixture of sections which are non-car/motorcycle breaking including the infamous Beggars Roost, High Bray and others enjoyed by competitors in previous years. The route will include stops for fuel near the start, approximately half way and near the end of the route. This year we are running the event under a MSA dual permit, Clubmans & National B. Those who enter the Clubmans event do not require a MSA Competition Licence, if you want to contend the Championships then you will have to enter the National B event. Motorcyclist who do not have a ACU Trial Affiliation can purchase a One Event Trial Registration, ideal for beginners to have a go. Breakfast will be available for purchase at the Cedars should you need refreshment.

We hope you will enter this event and find the day both interesting and challenging, we are working hard to make it as competitive as possible.”

Fell Side Auto Club LogoEntries are now open for the 2017 Northern Trial. Separate regs and entry forms for cars and bikes are below.

2017 Northern Trial Entry Pack (Cars)
2017 Northern Trial Entry Pack (Bikes)

“The 2017 Northern Classic Trial has a compact route of 57 road and 20 forestry miles around the Northern Lake District visiting many of the sections from previous years including the infamous Sandale, Black Hole and, once again, Big Cockup. We will use variable tyre pressures, diversions and a few restarts to make the trial more enjoyable for all competitors. The start venue is at the Hope’s Auction Mart in Wigton, they are geared up for farmers and we fit in well. Very good hot food and drinks will be available before the start and after the finish. Last year, thanks to our competitors, we raised £250 for the Flood Relief Fund.

In the National B event is open to members of member clubs of the ACTC. We have the eight standard car classes for those drivers wishing to enter the ACTC Championship.
The Clubmans event, which doesn’t require a MSA Competition Licence, is open to members of FSAC and members of invited clubs: – MCC, VSCC, Wigton MC, Preston & District VCC, Durham AC, Middle-England CVC, Ilkley DMC, Airedale & Pennine MCC and other ACTC Affiliated Clubs. Except for class 0 the Clubmans event will follow the same route and sections as the National B. This year’s event is Round 3 of the ACTC Championship for cars.

Storm Desmond caused us more than a few problems in 2016, several sections were washed out and unusable or blocked by fallen trees. On top of this forestry operations meant we were unable to access several more. Twelve months on and forestry operations have moved on and time has restored some of the damaged sections. We hope to use Big Cockup again for the first time for about eight years.

If you are unable to enter perhaps you would be willing to join our enthusiastic team of marshals, Myke Pocock will be very pleased to hear from you on 01228 530555 or [email protected] .

Wishing you all the best for Christmas and New Year

Fred Mills, Trial Secretary”

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!
