Due to various circumstances, the usual summer awards dinner has been rescheduled. So in 2018 there will be an awards dinner for both the 2016 and 2017 championships. This will take place on Saturday 17th March, at the Padbrook Park Hotel, Cullompton, Devon.
This is the night before the Torbay Trial, it is only a 25 minute drive from Cullompton to the start of the trial, there are rooms and plenty of trailer parking at Padbrook Park so hopefully people will make a weekend of it.
More details/menus etc. to follow, for any additional information please contact Alan Selwood – 07890 962191 or [email protected]
Could anyone with a current trophy please contact Alan to arrange collection (ideally from the start of a trial).
Rooms can be booked at Padbrook Park, just mention the ACTC to get the group rate.

The North regional championship will be decided on next weeks Durham Dales trial, as it is the last round for that region. Very tight between the top 3 currently :
1st : John Charles [21.9] 2nd : David Golightly [20.5] 3rd : Sam Holmes [20.3]
The other regions have most of their events in the second half of the year. The top 3 in the Wheelspin and Crackington leagues are excluded from the regional awards (these are marked in orange). Please note – this can affect the championships later in the year, as if someone drops down below 3rd in the Wheelspin or Crackington later in the year, they will re-appear in the regional championships.
Could competitors check their scores are correct, especially their MCC event scores. Please include your competition number for that event if querying a score.

Entries are now open for the MCC Testing Trial which is being held on Sunday 2nd July in Somerset. This year it is being run as a “taster” event and therefore MCC Membership is not a requirement.
Great value at £25 for approx 50+ tests. It is a great sociable yet competitive day out, last year saw some great class battles going on all day long amongst the 70+ entrants, catering and toilets are present as usual and awards are presented shortly after the event has finished.
Plenty of marshals required as usual, any volunteers would be welcome to call Nick Farmer on 07973 986803 or email [email protected]
The problems surrounding Land Access is an issue that everyone associated with motorsport could do without, whether that be Organisers of two wheel or four wheeled sport.
LARA is the motoring organisations’ Land Access and Recreation Association and acts as a national forum for the principal groups in countryside motor sport and recreation.
The ACU is the internationally recognised National Governing Body for motorcycle sport in the British Isles (less Northern Ireland). Formed in 1903, the ACU has a long tradition in the world of motorcycle sport being a founder member of the World Governing Body, the Federation Internationale Motocyclisme (FIM).
The ACU have now upgraded their Membership of LARA to Full Members which means that LARA now have representation over all four User Groups – motorsport / recreation 2 /3 wheels and 4 wheels.
John Collins, Chairman ACU Ltd said “Until recently, the ACU were Associate Members of LARA, however, we have been working very closely with Alan Kind and LARA on a couple of issues which could have had and still may have a wide effect on motorsport in general. Land Access is vital to our Off Road activities and as such we need to put our support where it is required in order to protect Off Road Sport. LARA is an important vehicle to deliver this”.
Andrew Knightly-Brown, Chairman of LARA commented “This is excellent news and I am delighted to have the ACU back on board as a full member. This really adds teeth to the LARA machine and enhances our position across the range of motorsport and recreational activity”.
