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”.
“Durham Dales Classic Trial May 28th 2017 (Organised by Middle England CVC)
Durham Dales Classic trial welcomes all competitors, from seasoned experts to total beginners and anyone in between. This will be the 4th year of running a successful trial, and our goal is still to give all competitors a low cost, well run and fun trial.
All the usual classes of car and bike PLUS class X are invited to compete!
Durham Dales Classic Trial was the brain child of Bernie ‘MADDOG’ Pugh. It first ran in 2014. It was only supposed to be a ‘one off’ but was so well received by competitors that with the help of dedicated individuals, we have decided to keep running it.
We have seen competitors from Dorset to the Highlands of Scotland, who have shown us that there is a dedication to Classic Trial that we simply can’t forget.
The history of the Trial may be short but every year we add some more.
Each trial we run adds to our reputation and moves us forward to produce an epic Classic Trial year after year.
