2019 ACTC AGM Agenda
Exmoor Clouds – Sunday 8th September 2019
The Minehead MC organising team are attempting to make this years event much more production car friendly as many previous car winners have been from Class 8. Chris Priddy, Paul Merson & Richard Hutchings will be looking at the sections with that in mind. They have identified over 20 Hills that can be used on the day, subject to weather conditions, some maybe class 7 or 8 only.
The event has been brought forward several weeks in the championship calendar so there’s a better chance of drier conditions to also make it easier for the lower classes as well as being an enjoyable event for the motorcycle classes.
Entries are now open and close at mid-day on 2nd September 2019.

They plan to have at least 17 sections and 2 special tests in a route of 55 miles with a route which is similar to previous years with a few amendments. This will incorporate the odd “Chairmans” Section being introduced, a new Section in the Rat Run complex and a welcomed return to Langtree Common.

MCC Edinburgh Trial - 5th October 2019
Really positive news with only 6 weeks to go until this years Edinburgh. It looks as though the MCC could be heading for a bumper entry as they now have well over 240 declared runners and riders with entries open until the 17th. As always though The MCC will keep accepting entries well into September.
The daylight only Derbyshire class entries will remain at the bargain price of £50 until entries for it close just before the trial.This is only possible for this class as all documentation will be sent digitally for it rather than printed hard copy.
Class R the all tarmac alternative is now almost full with literally just 5 spots still available! The offer of a 100% tarmac route of 200 miles proving tempting to many especially in classic cars timing is the simple relaxed MCC format timing by traditional MCC route cards. There are a number of code boards and passage controls en-route and the location of the hill starts is not revealed until you actually arrive at them!
The MCC have relaxed entry regulations and have a long list of invited clubs and groups that no longer necessitate the need for MCC membership mostly for Northern participants from clubs organising and supporting the Edinburgh in the past and present and national groups such as the TRF. As an experiment, the organisers are including an all new tarmac special test involving a narrow twisty private road where the action is guaranteed to be fast and furious.
There are subtle changes to this years route especially on traditional sections so forewarned is forearmed don't do what you always do at sections, read the route card carefully, especially for those sections run through the night!
The organisers work really is kicking in now from planned visits over the next fortnight to all sections and tests to finalise the layouts to making more direction boards for the route as well as chasing details like the petrol station staff willing to open at 3.30am. Then there's all the paperwork to finalise before its journey to the printers.
Observers are crucial for a grand day out on this scale and we are a little thin in places, [email protected] needs folk from Tamworth to Buxton and at all times of day, alternatively if you don't fancy anything arduous there are plenty of jobs at the Duke of York where they'll be having breakfast and the finish.
