“Launceston & North Cornwall Motor Club invite you to the 2018 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. This year the Start area will be in the old wood yard so there should be more space for parking along the track to it. We again plan to have a catering van in attendance throughout the day providing hot rolls and baps etc. and hot & cold drinks.

Membership to Launceston & North Cornwall Motor Club for the year will as usual be offered anyone who enters the trial. 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 11th February and look forward to providing you with a good day’s sport.”

Venue : Lew Woods, Lewdown, Devon, EX20 4NY

“The 2018 Northern Classic Trial has a compact route of 58 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.

This year’s event is Round 5 of the ACTC National Championship and Round One of the ACTC North Regional Championship for cars. It is a great opportunity to score some points in very spectacular scenery.

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.

Should you be unable to enter this year perhaps you would be willing to marshal. We can promise you an enjoyable day in the country, interesting cars and bikes, good company and great atmosphere. Contact Myke Pocock at [email protected] or phone 01228 530555.

Up to date details of the trial can be found on our website www.fellsideac.co.uk

2018 Cotswold Clouds Trial Entry Pack

“On Sunday 4th February 2018 we welcome you to join us, as we have done since 1963, for our annual 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, winner of the ACTC Trial of the Year award in 2016, remains a successful and popular trial attracting a full entry for many years. The organising team of Carl Talbot, Mark Hobbs, Nigel Scotford, Ben Giles and Suzanne Burns look forward to receiving your entries, so please complete and return the enclosed entry form as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. We will keep you updated with entries via our website and the Clubs Facebook page.

This year we are moving our scrutineering venue to Fromebridge Mill, where signing on and the start of the event will also take place as per previous years. Tea, coffee and hot food will be available as usual. No trailers should be taken to the start but they can be left at SKF as previously.

The trial will finish at the Minchinhampton Common Golf Club where good food and drinks will be available at very reasonable prices, so please support them.

If you’re not planning to compete this year, please consider offering your services as a Marshal. These offers are so very much appreciated and we literally couldn’t do it without you. Our Chief Marshal is Nigel Scotford, so please give him a ring on 01453 884691 or 01453 873787 if you are able to help in any way.

We look forward to seeing you on the hills.”

No Clee Hills Trial in 2018

CLEE HILLS TRIAL 2018

The Midland Automobile Club much regrets that it will be unable to organise the Clee Hills Trial in January 2018.

After the success of this year’s trial, especially, perhaps, for the motorcyclists who were able to compete on the trial for the first time in the event’s 70-year history, it is a huge disappointment that the club is unable to put on the trial next year.

The club thanks and expresses its considerable appreciation of considerable work undertaken by the team, notably Simon Woodall, Adrian Tucker-Peake, Graham Austin, Richard Houlgate and Jonathan Toulmin, all of whom have been instrumental in organising the Clee Hills Trial for the Midland Automobile Club over the last 24 years – the only classic trial run in the Midlands.

MAC intend to run the event in January 2019.

Camel Classic Trial 2017 Regs Available

Camel Vale Motor ClubEntries are now open for the 2017 Camel Classic Trial, to be held on Sunday 3rd December.

2017 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!

Start Venue : The Borough Arms, Dunmere, Bodmin, PL31 2RD

2017 Allen Trial Entry Pack

“The 2017 Allen Trial will once again start and finish at The Bull Inn at Hinton, just off the A46 approximately 2 miles south of Junction 18 on the M4. The event will include all the old
favourites (Guys Hill, Travers & John Walker). We have retained Fry’s Bottom with the through route and hopefully a new section, and reduced the mileage on the A46 after John Walker, following the delays last year.

Once again we are running the trial under a Dual-Permit (National B & Clubman). The Clubman Event (open to invited clubs) allows non-championship contender to participate in the trial without the need for a competition licence. We have an award for the first overall in the clubman event. We will be using the same trailer parking as last year… Following feedback towing assistance will be available both before and after the event if required.

In recent years the trial has been well subscribed so to avoid disappointment don’t delay with your entry. If you are unable to enter but could come and marshal we would be delighted to hear from you. Please contact Mark Tooth 01454 329231 or Pete Hart 0117 9372611.

We look forward to seeing you and offering you an enjoyable day’s trialing on the 26th November.”
